lyrics

"Dad's not breathing"
"Mum's skin is ghostly pale"

breathe in this putrid air
the fires burn for days and nights
the contagion rages on
it's spreading by thousands more
and it's coming
to reunite us with the love we lost

just two kids all alone
dear sister, I'll take care of you
lay by the docks at night
no home left, we're just waiting
for our ferryman
to reunite us with the love we lost

"dear God hear me
this is no place two kids should be
dear God hear me
how have we wronged you?"

sleep in the filth, rest well
the birds descend now with his will
I wake to hear your cries
sweet Grim's mark, for only you
he's coming
to take away my only love I've left

"dear God hear me
this is no place two kids should be
dear God hear me
how have we wronged you?

you took my family
all with your plague
we were no sinners
we praised your name"

and night now falls
as does my chest
"I'll meet you soon"
expel my last breath
