From the album Gods of a Fallen Empire

Lyrics

Black clouds
Converging
I feel them weighing me down
Each drop
A torrent
I'm sinking into the ground
(Futile)
Futile is the life we're given
(Searching)
Searching for a greater meaning
(Deeper)
The deeper that we dig the hole
(We find)
We find we come away with
(Nothing)
Nothing left to leave our sons
(Dying)
But dying palms filled with soil
(Broken)
Our broken backs arched to the sky
(We see)
We see how deep a grave we've dug

The rain falls down
Thunder echoes through the air
Your final sound
A simple sigh of despair
Death rises around
Buried beneath a wave
Struggle no more
As black water fills your grave

Silence
Forever
I feel it enveloping me
All light
fading
A deadly grip tightening
(Our lives)
All our lives we spend escaping
(An end)
An end we know will one day come
(Avoid)
Avoid the presence of the moment
(We're left)
We're left with naught but broken
(Memories)
Memories filled with lies
(Another)
Another wasted destiny
(Pleading)
Pleading for a new tomorrow
(Deaf ears)
On deaf ears fall our final cries

The rain falls down
Thunder echoes through the air
Your final sound
A simple sigh of despair
Death rises around
Buried beneath a wave
Struggle no more
As black water fills your grave

Mother
Remember
The first time I made a sound
Waste not
Tear drops
There's already plenty to drown
(Devastate)
Devastated by a weakness
(I could)
I could always call my own
(As dark)
As dark waters rise around me
(Exhale)
I exhale and make my
(Final)
Final mark upon the world
(My loss)
My loss met with indifference
(The rain)
The rain will not mourn for me
(Washes)
As it washes me away

The rain falls down
Thunder echoes through the air
Your final sound
A simple sigh of despair
Death rises around
Buried beneath a wave
Struggle no more
As black water fills your grave
