Silent Symphony

from by Adversary

lyrics

My gaze met the wall towering high past sight
With no gate to be seen, only immortal night
 
Thoughts bent inwards, I can almost feel her there
Pacing in trance, eyes to the sky, skin - naked and bare
"Abandon all hope ye who enter here"
Should be written, so bold, for all who come near
Yet hope's all I have left amid the broken dreams
A dream in which I can save her from this harrowing scene
 
I've traveled in desperation to overcome this wall
I will not return alone, if I should return at all
 
If she were encircled by the river Lethe
I would upheave my anchor, tied tightly around me
And sink into forgetfulness through cold black shades
To the bottom, to remain in a perpetual state
 
Just to be near her fire, to feel the warmth inside her
I'll stay silent and humble waiting for walls to crumble
 
A broadened view - a realization
Of all I've lost - my own ruination
A broadened view - a new epiphany
Weeping inside - a silent symphony
 
Inside on her own; distorted memories from a home
The rivers and the rain won't wash away undying pain
Held together by a thread, her wasted words will go unread
The letters to the one, hoping soon one day he'd come for her
 
A promise to always be kept no matter what may come
Nothing will stand in the way of what's to be done
Her blue eyes will still have their hue; embrace will be just as sweet
The final chapters left will be complete

A broadened view - a realization
Of all I've lost - my own ruination
A broadened view - a new epiphany
Weeping inside - a silent symphony
