These days are closing in.
The end has become apparent.
We’re only here for so long.
Will anyone remember my name
When time has washed away
The dust…of my ashes?
When my head rests in a velvet lined casket?
What’s out there?
What is my eternal fate?
It only just recently hit me
That this life…is just a state.
Mortality fading,
Like the innocence of love,
I’m scared to death
Of what’s to become

Of my immortal soul
Of this eternal flame, will you remember?
Will your heart sing with pain?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens,
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end, in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?

All those things you couldn’t say, you should have said.
All those “I love you”s lost,
Weighed more like lead on your chest.
All those things you couldn’t say, you should have said.
All those “I love you”s lost,
Weighed more like lead on your chest.

Of my immortal soul
Of this eternal flame, will you remember?
Will your heart sing with pain?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens,
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end, in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?

If I could take back all those misspent days,
Every second of anger,
I would wash my sins away.

Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens,
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end, in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens,
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end, in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?

    Kleao, i like your description, but just simply in my view... Its a man who realizes that one day he will die and theres nothing he can do about it, but what will make him remembered when his eyes close for the last time? What will happen when he dies? Will he go to heaven? Hell? Or is death the end of all? Just a blanket of eternall darkness.

    First, Atreyu songs are inspired by vampirical things. I believe its because a being that lives forever and is human like in nature knows what pain and love trully are. This song is about a vampire looking back at his lost love. and how he is bound to live in pain for the rest of eternity.
