The Moor



Verse 1

The sigh of summer upon my return
Fifteen alike since I was here
Bathed in deep fog, blurring my trail
Snuffing the first morning rays

Verse 2

Weary from what might have been ages
Still calm with my mind at peace
Would I prosper or fall, drain the past
The lapse of the moment took it's turn

Verse 3

I was foul and tainted, devoid of faith
Wearing my death mask at birth
The hands of God decrepit and thin
Cold caress and then nothing

Verse 4

I was taken away from my plight
A treason bestowed to the crowd
Branded a Jonah with fevered blood
Ungodly freak, defiler


Pale touch, writhing in the embers
Damp mud burning in my eyes


All the faces turned away
And all would sneer at my demise

Verse 5

[yeahh] Outcast with dogmas forged below
Seared and beaten, and banished from where I was born
No mercy would help me on my way
In the pouring rain, nothing is the same

Verse 6

Vows in ashes
I pledge myself to no one
Seethed and spiteful
All shudder at the call of my name


If you'll bear with me
You'll fear of me

Verse 7

There is no forgiveness in these eyes
For any of you but one
Dispel the mist for now
Melinda is the reason why I've come


uh hu hu uh…

Verse 8

[uhh] She is water drops over the pyre
A thistle in my hands
Stained and torn, aged and brown
Virtuous shell with kindred innocence

Verse 9

I awoke from the miasma
Passing swiftly through the moor
This is here, waters stir
And in the distance, all that was lost


If you'll bear with me
You'll fear of me
You'd never leave me to
A fate with you
