Twelfth Gate – Forgotten Names lyrics

This standing dream
I'm walking through the haze
Peaceful and amazed, I've given in
So much to do
I'm so far from through

The flower petals blow away
As I read these forgotten names
The cemetery bares their forgotten names
I had to turn away from their calls

Welcome death
Can you hear the silent screams?
I'm not the chosen one
I'm just a man who's wandering
Offering a prayer for a life to spare

Who will remember you?
And what were you like?
The cemetery bares their forgotten names
I had to run away from their screams

Forgotten names
I still see them in my sleep
They won't let me forget

They rule the night
So I'll take this flight

Drawn in by the fog
But now I'll head for the gate

Had to come to peace in my head
Or relive it every night

You and I are destined to be forgotten here
The spirit wind blows through the rows of forgotten souls
We'll carry on and on for you
Forever in memory

Welcome death
