The aftermath of war, nature and relationships is often conflagration.

lyrics

After the Burning

And the pain is everlasting,
though I know it has no value.
And I’d dearly like to hold you,
but I know I’ll never reach out.
And the darkness is my blanket,
protection from the yearning.
And the wheels wind down
inside my head,
No longer are they turning.
And of promises never kept,
come the lesson I keep learning.
And my arms caress the lonely void
of all that remains
after the burning.
And the sun is always shining,
but I think it’s going nova.
And I long to see the faces,
through the fog that now surrounds me.
And I feel no more the anguish,
for the blood has ceased to flow there.
And dancing circles with shadows,
broken rhythm - never started.
And the darkness is my consort,
protection from the spurning.
And the wheels wind down inside my head,
no longer are they turning.
And of promises never made,
comes the crisis of returning.
And my arms caress the lonely void
of all that remains
after the burning.
And the darkness is my cover,
it asks nought of things concerning.
The wheels wind down inside my head,
no longer are they turning.
And my arms caress the lonely void
of all that remains
after the burning.
