Ghost – Witch Image lyrics

[Verse 1: Cardinal Copia]
You (you...)
Have never stood this close to where you want to be
You (you...)
Have always waded in the shallows
Between me and the deep blue sea

[Pre-Chorus: Cardinal Copia]
You'd never want me to appear
You never want this to be over
You never want it to reach out to the edge of time

[Chorus: Cardinal Copia]
While you sleep in earthly delight
Someone's flesh is rotting tonight
Like no other to you...
What you've done you cannot undo

[Verse 2: Cardinal Copia]
I (I...)
Have always kept you closer than you've known
I (I...)
I am riding in the shadows
Behind you on a pale white horse

[Pre-Chorus: Cardinal Copia]
You'd never want me to appear
You never want this to be over

[Chorus: Cardinal Copia]
Someone's flesh is rotting tonight
Like no other to you...
What you've done you cannot undo
While you sleep in earthly delight
Still, your soul will suffer this plight
Like your father in hell...
What you've sold you cannot unsell

[Solo: Nameless Ghouls (Fire & Aether)]

[Chorus: Cardinal Copia]
While you sleep in earthly delight
Someone's flesh is rotting tonight
Like no other to you...
What you've done you cannot undo
While you sleep in earthly delight
Still, your soul will suffer this plight
But like a mother would save...
Her own child from digging a grave

    This song is pretty bluntly saying that your death is going to come eventually so instead of following the strict rules of whatever religion to live lose and enjoy life because what you’ve done you cannot undo and that has two meanings. One saint God doesn’t forget what you’ve done and also that if you don’t do something you will never get to do it again and your soul either going to heaven or hell will be decided on how you choose to life so your soul no matter what will suffer.
