lyrics

Verse

As I look down to the ground
My headstone turns to ash
Fragments of a life once lived
Submitted to the past
To a realm of insignificance

My memories are like tapestries
Growing more prescious as they age
My soul, just a whisper away
From decendants that don’t even know I can see

Verse

Watch my son have a son of his own
See the baby grow into a man
View the obsticles in their life as if I were living through them
See my grandson lay a bouquet of flowers down on his fathers grave
I know he lived the life he wanted
I hope heaven is where his soul lays

Chorus

Will anyone remember me at all?
Will my life seem somehow interesting?
I hope I have impacted you somehow
I’m forced to re-live all the mistakes that I’ve made through you
The mistakes that I’ve made Through you

Bridge

Rotting… In a realm between life and death
I know where I am but I don’t know where I’m going

½ Verse

This era is far from home
I left the world one hundred years ago
dwelling in this lifeless realm
The ages tear my legacy apart

Bridge

Why?
I wanted to touch the divine
I want to rest amoung the clouds
The mountains of the sky

Verse

Watch my son have a son of his own
See the baby grow into a man
View the obsticles in their life as if I were living through them
See my grandson lay a bouquet of flowers down on his fathers grave
I know he lived the life he wanted
I hope heaven is where his soul lays

Chorus

Will anyone remember me at all?
Will my life seem somehow interesting?
I hope I have impacted you somehow
I’m forced to re-live all the mistakes that I’ve made through you
The mistakes that I’ve made through you
