lyrics

Cold wandering
Dust that obscures my eyes
No reaching for the walls that can't hold me up
The wind blows through my fingers
Nothing but the road ahead
They say one step is all it takes
But I've walked for as long as I know

An endless chill that grips me
Invisible hands that clutch my throat
Desperation need not end me
So why do I follow to the void?

Imprison me
Lead me to the edge
Say no prayers for me
Then leave me in the wastes
In the valley of lead

Imprison me
Safe among the strays
No words are said for me
I crawl amongst the shunned
In the valley of lead

Graying skies overhead
A sign from the masters
The stars are hiding nothing
And they don't shine here anyway
The words drawn out in spells
For our sorrows laid to rest
The facade that we still exist

An endless thought that consumes me
Invisible hands that hold me down
Desperation need not end me
So why do I lead them to the void?

Imprison me
Lead me to the edge
Say no prayers for me
Then leave me in the wastes
In the valley of lead

Imprison me
Safe among the strays
No words are said for me
I crawl amongst the shunned
In the valley of lead

Captured
Motionless
Diseased in the place where hopes die
Can't bury me
Where the earth won't move
The desert wind
Will carry me away
Carry me away
