Abigail Williams – Like Carrion Birds lyrics

This place holds within it's walls
A profane legacy, it's sickening my soul
A monument to darker ages
Behold two thousand years we burn the memory.

Twas such a beautiful site
The flames wrought tears from my eyes
To the beating of my dreadful heart
Peering into the dark to the dungeons of her hope.

Thine is this portion of my flesh
Will you wreak your sorrow on me forevermore
On this somber starless night
You've wandered from the safety of thy nightly shores.

From the cold tombs heart
The spectre washes away
We overturn the graves of gods
Who told lies.

I feel as if time has fallen
Deathly still
My passions my sorrows
Mere memories of a life past

But I've come too far to just walk
Away from my empire
The ashes from the fire
Still litter the earth in my wake

But I've come too far to just walk
Away from my empire
The ashes from the fire
Still litter the earth in my wake

An infinite sadness towards
Finite endings
Blessings from below curses
To the above.

An infinite sadness towards
Finite endings
Blessings from below curses
To the above.
