lyrics

We lay here, aside this lake
Awaiting, oh, our fate
We mean no, no harm nor fear
But now we must, we must pay

(Who comes upon us, entering this sacred place,
Into this watery bed where the jewel of life is encased?
Tell me now your true intent, but don’t expect us to relent,
Or any mercy to be shown, for this misdeed is yours alone.)

Look not into my eyes, in but a second you’ll have no recollection of who you are
Return home but how, when there’s nothing to remember?
If you touch my skin, your emotions will drain from within
Harm me not, or your will to live will cease

We beg you
Oh leave us be
Oh set us free

How could you not know?
Ignorance is no excuse
Intentions matter not
This is the end of life for you

Betray not your anger, lest I will come
(It will not be betrayed)
Weep not with sorrow, or I will draw near
(I will not weep with sorrow)

We laid here, aside this lake
Awaiting, oh, our fate
We meant no, no harm nor fear
But now we must, we must pay
(Who would come upon us to defile this sacred place
Entering this watery bed where the jewel of life is encased?
Beg me to your heart’s content, we can’t abide or relent
No mercy will be shown, for the fault of man is yours alone)

We submit to fate
We realize mistakes made too late
Our spirits, we let go
From the shore to the lakebed below

Intentions matter not
Mistakes are yours to own.
