letra de lady madeline in her coffin – i am ghost

there was a time when stillness meant nothing to me
once, silence meant lack of sound;
fall came once a year
i danced, redcheeked,
each year’s first snow,
tongue out to taste each flake’s welcome sting
i laughed, distinct from nature’s cycles,
a scr*p of wonder, floating in a torrent
of sorrow i couldn’t grasp
that laugh, mouth open, sums up my past
i craved fulfillment, too shallow to know
i could never be fully filled again
here we are and it’s open
i lay her down in the glow (half of creation’s destruction).
replaced the moon and the stars with candles
black and grey
is to drown, when yesterday… yesterday
fades through broken gl*ss
i hate what i’ve become
enclosed, please find silence
fade through broken gl*ss
i hate what i’ve become
enclosed, please find silence,
everything’s shallow,
we’re chasing ourselves
beneath a stone,
i am covered in make-up
it won’t wash away
beneath a stone
we are joy,
i was just a boy,
goodnight,
beauty scar, powdered make-up,
melting eyes, smile of bone
i replaced the moon and the stars with candles
we are all the same, when everything… everything
fades through broken gl*ss
i hate what i’ve become
enclosed, please find silence
fade through broken gl*ss
i hate what i’ve become
enclosed, please find silence,
everything¹s shallow,
we’re chasing ourselves beneath a stone,
i am covered in make-up
it won’t wash away,
beneath a stone
we are joy, so take my hand
we are joy, so take my hand
sing inside the shadows
she surrounds the love i hid
the beating of a god
that won’t let go.
i know, black and grey is to drown in yesterday
we are joy, so take my hand
we are joy, so take my hand
