About this track:
///Shadows sneaking amongst the trees, shards of mist dancing on the dimly lit roads. It is easy to see how the mind can be tricked into believing wayward spirits to wander these roads at night.///

lyrics

Eased out of finite, of finite form
denied the pantheon in the sky, haven of peace
Bright and incandescent the unconquered soul
Sent in with the spectral winds of time, bereft of grace

Amidst the middens and the moors
the dusty paths
leading to the church yard
by several aeons paved

A hamlet gripped by crippling fear
plagued by incessant howls
carried on the winds
along corpse roads

Perched unwaveringly upon the lych gate
the presence emitting a pale blue light from transparent eyes
Shape of luminescence, harbinger of loss
a solemn reminder of the transience of life

The ghosts gather at the roads
with arms outstretched
craving company

A hamlet gripped by crippling fear
plagued by incessant howls
carried on the winds
along corpse roads

Scouring the shores where I once walked
where once I breathed the salt air

where warcries were sung and the gallows once swung
and the violence is said to remain
Following the trail where floating candles drift on the breeze
whispered voices soothe the weary soldiers’ minds; “go to sleep”

A hamlet gripped by crippling fear
plagued by incessant howls
carried on the winds
along corpse roads
