The Last Gravestone

from by FEN

lyrics

In the cold embrace of a crumbling chapel
The last gravestone stands and waits
Bathed in the aura of a forever setting sun
Pitted stone casts a lengthening shadow

Screaming winds and whipping brine-spray
Give voice to the howls of the lost and drowned
They are calling… calling
One final forlorn spirit to join them

From blackened earth to blacker waters
Drowned spirit-realm of ebon
No shred of light, no breath of sol
Can pierce this clave of the lost

Myriad voices, a reverential choir
Trembling the very roots of Albion
Sonorous this song of woe
From a thousand throats forgotten

Yet the gravestone still stands
Alone and unyielding
Crying defiance to the ravenous ocean
A totem of will
Legacy in stone

“Patient we are… waiting… watching…

A sky wreathed in flame
Above an ocean of glass
We walk as one beneath cerulean waves
Spectral hands
Raising as one
Embracing new horizons

All is lost
Yet nothing is gone
United in darkness we see with new eyes
Blessing the seabed
With echoes of will
These eroding canyons our eternal temple

Children once walked
And mothers once grieved
Bearing the wounds of the lost and bereaved
All was forgotten
In the tithes to the drowned
We see yet don’t remember”

Upon this dead cliff
A final soul dwells
One last offering to the yawning waters
Closure, finality
A siren song of ending
