Lyrics:

For Those Left Behind

We could no longer see the moon, nor feel the heat of the sun
Only the gray snow and carbon ice, dry air and the nodding sky

One after another laid to rest, tired women, children and men
Still better for all those left behind than for us without them

At the end of this rimed road
and behind the desolate woods
Across the roaring rapids

light of this world slowly wanes

Grim and gruelling journey it has been,
still longer the road ahead
and by the time we must carry on
to face the remaining days

We could no longer see the moon, nor feel the heat of the sun
Only the gray snow and carbon ice, dry air and the nodding sky

One after another laid to rest, tired women, children and men
Still better for all those left behind than for us without them

When few of us may hear at last
The river running near ahead
On the bank and in the shades
The wretched will hear us too

Long awaited, yet unwelcome
We tread the hostile ground
Death is walking next behind us
Out tired feet leading to unknown

Darkness - lost and wounded beyond the cure
Prayer from afar and dead before it’s end
Gone - to be one with those of this land
I glanced at the sky and waited my turn

Fear- gave way to the peace in my heart
as snow and ice gave way to the earth
All this pain to keep darkness at bay

    Brilliant! Very, very good for a band starting out. I hope the rest of the CD is this good.

    Very nice song; although I find it a little amusing that when the singer screamed at the beginning of the song he actually sounded a little like Tim McIlrath from Rise Against.

    Vitun mahtava biisi, ja varsinkin toi puhtaasti laulettu kohta (säkeistö?) aiheuttaa tahrojen syntymistä alushousujen etumukseen.
