lyrics

A brilliant scarlet sky cries icy drops
that sting the moss
it has no voice to scream
just deep and silent inertia
that above all else shall remain the same
unnamed travellers tilt their heads
they all sing the same praises
but not a thought of what supports their feet
the steadfast life of the ground
is worth as much as the shiniest metals
the last in line of the wanderers halts
a tug at his cuff
an unusual sense

this must be the way home
this must be the way home

the hooded man drops to his knees
howling inside unwilling to believe
that his journey ends with a new direction
towards the darkest places
he digs his hands in between the moss
ripping up hunks of the swollen earth

this must be the way home
this must be the way home
this must be the way home
this must be the way home

a blinding red moon beats upon his back
this must be the way this must be the way
endless digging with battered hands
panicked searching for an unknown end
this must be the way this must be the way
he seeps deeper into the soil
dim moist heavy walls
cover his ears repeat repeat
this must be the way this must be the way
he doesn´t fight
