shades of mourning – veins of sand lyrics

Loading...

receding—the feeding pools, the reservoir of a dying world
where we once gathered, take a drink of nothingness
this is all we have left to fight for—the drying hole you see below
when the final foe has fallen, will it hasten back the flow?

where will i go when the river runs dry?
not a drop falls from the sky
i gaze upon this baking clay
and all is lost in the fray

the fires burn ‘round the eddy
the evidence of what this thirst has made in me

lost in battle—those once called friends
the waters fallow, the drought descends
the crows circle, waiting over head
to eat the offal of the fallen dead

dry throat crying for a final sip
raspy moan escapes from parched lips
we lost the love that kept life in these lands
the drying earth falls through my hands

everything dry
now you know
now you know why

where will i go when the river runs dry?
not a drop fall from the sky

i miss the sound of running water
i feel the sand running through my veins

i miss the sound of running water
i feel the sand that’s coursing through my veins
i miss the laughter of another
i seek forgiveness from the one’s i’ve blamed
what remains?
and nothing now can bring back the rain
