Rivers Of Nihil – The Silent Life lyrics
The sun leaves on its own
A simple passage of the days that I have wasted
I feel the summer slipping through
These aging fingers

Compelled to walk upon the same path that I have tread so long
Still nothing changes
A simple passage to a place that I have come to know
I still remember

A better time
When the thoughts that we had connected
Between our open eyes
We say goodbye to a life that’s been mostly silent
Erroneously led

Strive to complete myself
It seems my work is never truly done
I see your face, barely through the haze
You see a life, erroneously led

There’s hope in younger days
There’s warmth within the past that’s so familiar
I forget just why I came here
I Hope that you remember

All this time I’ve wasted
In my self-righteous anger
Oh the years I’ve lost
To this profound indifference
I find my direction
A solemn duty owned
Mine, it is mine alone
To watch this world expire

Like machines, we embrace
Cold limbs connect
A silent, errored life
Slipping into oblivion

Led astray through endless days
Silent now, the words so loud

My mind is drifting out
Between perception of a dream and what is real
Now all I have is lost with you
I hope that you remember

A better time
When the lights were all so candescent
That reached me from the sky
We say goodbye to a life within dead horizons
Erroneously led

Strive to escape myself
It seems my work is never truly done
I see your shape falter in the wake
Of a life erroneously led
