Track Name: The Quietus
here it ends around the bend
my biggest fear is my destiny
left behind for what it’s worth
save your sorrow, scrape the earth

don’t belong here, never will
sold my soul with every sin
so long
no mercy, no remorse
I’m quitting

I severed all of the ties and wasted night
did my part and now I’m done
I’m on a quest for rest
now give this lonely man a gun

grim eminence, the cold expense
kiss it goodbye, suffering done

this is home not some asylum
a setting sun and a world to come
between the hills above and the valley below
where I astray forevermore
lay my head down low
for the quietus

visions of another world
blizzards, winter’s on the loose
visions of another world
blizzards, winter’s on the loose
dawn goes down the drain
nothing gold can stay
visions

dawn goes down the drain
nothing gold can stay

ready the gallows
gear up your loins

survival of courageous and wary
scavengers
rise to something more instead
build it up with my own blood
a life of resentment
had enough

survival of courageous and wary
scavengers
there’s no way to be free
you murderer
for a man like me: no sanctuary

grim eminence, the cold expense
kiss it goodbye, suffering done
the only way, the only one

dawn goes down the drain
nothing gold can stay

this is home not some asylum
a setting sun and a world to come
between the hills above and the valley below

here it ends around the bend again
my biggest fear is my destiny
left behind for what it’s worth
save your sorrow, scrape the earth

grim eminence, the cold expense
kiss it goodbye, suffering done
the only way, the only one
I’m on my way
dead and gone

the quietus
rise
I’m ready
let it go
die
