lyrics

I.

Casting shadows, casting shapes;
our chains are slowly rusting.
Casting doubt on all our faith;
only wolves will visit our graves.

The burning earth ritual,
we roll the bones and watch them fall.
The burning earth grieves like a ghost.
Shamans know that comets return.

Cast your nets into the sea
and drift forever on the waves.
Casting roles in tragedies,
we turn to dust upon the stage.

The burning earth ritual,
we roll the bones and watch them fall.
The burning earth grieves like a ghost.
Shamans know that comets return.

II.

The blood of the father;
the faces of the mother’s womb.
The blood of the father;
a waning gibbous moon.

We carry the blackness
like celestial bodies.
A heavy rain is falling.
In darkness we believe.
Ancestors forsaken,
scarecrows in the weeds.
Our heavy hearts are falling
to the bottom of the sea.
