lyrics

Silent forests, once my beloved homeland
The dead trees and the dried lakes sing their songs no more
Silent streets, no cheering crowd to greet my arrival
And only ashes where once stood my home

Curse you ghosts of dawn, why do you haunt me so
You don't belong with the living
I am alive! My body broken and my mind shattered
But I'm still alive

The distant stars look down upon me
The remnants of my soul laid bare under their glare
I'm the last of my line, the last of mankind
Just a bitter old man, yearning for peace

"Why was I the one to survive? I was no different from them, no different in the end
As years passed me by, I watched the world grow old with me"

Silent shore, covered in poisonous mist
The dense fog like a suffocating shroud over this land
Silent waters, dead bodies washed ashore
And wrecked ships as far as the eye can see

Curse you ghosts of dawn, why do you haunt me so
You don't belong with the living
I am alive! My body broken and my mind shattered
But I'm still alive

The great bird flew back to my side
Rested its tired wings on my heavy shoulders
Wounded, suffering, entwined with my pain
The bird cried with me, and turned into ash

As the storm gathers and approaches me
I close my fist around the ashes of my hope
I watch the oceans rise and swallow the world
The end has finally come and the world will drown

"As I sit here by the ocean, I welcome the waves that will cleanse this world
My heart will soon find peace as my body is embraced by the sea
Long have I waited, long have I fought this neverending battle
All will be over at last"
