Nargaroth – I Got My Dead Man Sleep lyrics

I got my dead man sleep
I lived as wolf among the sheep

With screaming hate I hide the tear
But at night my daemons made me fear

I laid me down in autumn rain
A man should not live in shame

I sleep underneath red leaf
The maple's gift to hide my grief

I was the Ahab of my life
My wrath was my love and my wife

I hunt through oceans for The Whale
To burden him with wrath and fail

While I dream I wither away
I'll never see the spring in May

The wolves will dig out all my bones
They scattered rot between the Stones

My rest seems now calm and deep
Finally I got my dead man sleep
