Carry Me Home (Into the Twilight)

About grieving for the collapse of the world, as everything turns to grey around you.

I read your words and wonder what's wrong

You're nothing to them and even less to me

I look to the skies and see only a dead heaven

Hell's frozen and devoid of sympathy

You're shattered and your mind is weaker

Maybe I could give you strength and wings to fly

or I could destroy the rest of you, leaving your soul to die

Now that we're silent, maybe you can see the world

you could see everything for what it really is

Angry, hateful, a soulcrushing and biting world

Open your eyes for what it really is

Carry me home

Carry me home

Maybe we'll be happier in the twilight

If this world will leave us to roam

If this world will leave us alone

Angels don't watch over you

They're as careless and twisted as us

God has a darker sense of humour now

The gates of heaven disused and turning to rust

Carry me home

Carry me home

Maybe we'll be happier in the twilight

If this world will leave us to roam

If this world will leave us alone

The heavens weep, awakening

mourning the world, unfolding

Screams and cries, hell's laughing

The Heavens distress, breaking

The End
