  1. Walk Away

From the album Gods of a Fallen Empire

Lyrics

Moonlit shadows hide what was to be
My face, but you swore you could see
My image, calm and unopposed
As tainted as a black rose
Your heart was left for me to find
Tore out what kept my piece of mind
My willow weeps upon the ground
A raging river makes no sound

Slate black a starless night
A howling wind calls my name
Drawn into the twilight
Devoid of clarion treasures
As though looks could not deceive
Something. Anything. Tell me what you want from me
I can be what you can't believe
Then I'll walk away forever

Words I wish to speak all fall away
Truth undefined and gray
Your spirit, pure as the snow
That hides what no once can know
Lost my light to what you can conceive
Luminous shadows in the trees
Rejecting what you'd thought you'd found
Leaves only frozen sun-scorched ground


Slate black a starless night
A howling wind calls my name
Drawn into the twilight
Devoid of clarion treasures
As though looks could not deceive
Something. Anything. Tell me what you want from me
I can be what you can't believe
Then I'll walk away forever
