up on the grave of guilt lyrics – falconer

deep inside the black and winding mazes
i’m running from my ghouls
my own thoughts are replaced by
the hidden faces deep from my soul

longing to see time rolling by
to ease the thoughts of regret
my bad conscience tears me apart
how will i ever forget?

dark recollections gnaw my inside
i’ve tried to run and i’ve tried to hide

reaching the barrow of my memories
to lay the final stone upon the grave
searching inner kingdoms for control
to put the lid of oblivion upon the grave of guilt

as i look into the mirror
i do not see my face
two lying hollow eyes is staring back
with the look of shame and disgrace

my past is darkening my future
as my present dies
every morning is a step towards
the edge of my soul’s demise

dark recollections gnaw my inside
i’ve tried to run and i’ve tried to hide

reaching the barrow of my memories
to lay the final stone upon the grave
searching inner kingdoms for control
to put the lid of oblivion upon the grave of guilt

yesterday’s demon’s like a plague to my mind
that never seems to cure
imprisoning me to what i left behind
letting my conscience unchain no more

dark recollections gnaw my inside
i’ve tried to run and i’ve tried to hide

reaching the barrow of my memories
to lay the final stone upon the grave
searching inner kingdoms for control
to put the lid of oblivion upon the grave of guilt
