Ashes
Oceanlab Lyrics


Across the Eerie waters
Misty covered glass I spied
A sad procession, snaking down
The dry and deathly trail
And as my telescopic eye
Focused on the marching line
It settled on the fallen crown
Now covered with a veil

The heavy weight of mourning
Drew each head to face the ground
Muscles tight on bearers' arms
Each body cold and frail
And through the muslin mist
The beating drums, the only sound
Twenty boats out in the bay
All ready to set sail

Ashes take me back to Earth
Water quench my human thirst
Ashes take me back to Earth
Water quench my human thirst

My bones soaked in the icy cold
And fixed me where I lay
Until each vessel left the shore
And made a line for me
There never was a breeze
The leaves were silent all that day
They say the sails were ghosts
That stole the wind to set them free

I layed transfixed
Felt nothing, but the beating of my fear
As flames rose up and swallowed whole
Greatest of the fleet
The others circled round
And I heard chanting fill the air
The ashes, lifted high
Were falling back into the sea

Ashes take me back to Earth
Water quench my human thirst
Ashes take me back to Earth
Water quench my human thirst

Across the eerie waters 
Misty covered glass I spied
A sad procession snaking down 
The dry and deathly trail
And as my telescopic eye   
Focused on the marching light
It settled on the falling crown now covered with a veil
The heavy weight of morning drew each head to face the ground
Muscle tight on bearers arms 
Each body cold and frail
And through the muslin mist the beating drums the only sound
20 boats out on the bay all ready to set sail 

Ashes…. take me back to earth 
Ohhhhhh
Water…… quench my human thirst
Ashes……… take me back to earth….
ohhhhhh
Water…….. quench my human thirst 

My bones soaked in the icy cold
And fixed me where I lay
Until each vessel left the shore
I made a line for me
There never was a breeze
That leaves me silent on that day 
They say the sails were ghosts
That stole the wind to set them free
I lay transfixed 
Felt nothing but the beating of my fear
As flames rose up and swallowed whole 
The greatest of the fleet 
The others circled around
And I heard chanting fill the air
The ashes
Lifted higher
Falling back into the sea

Ashes…… take me back to earth
Ohhhhhh
Water….quench my human thirst
Ashes….take me back to earth
Ohhhhhh
Water… quench my human thirst

Some small fixes:

Focused on the marching light -> line.
The heavy weight of morning -> mourning.
20 boats out on the bay -> out in.
I made a line for me -> And made.
That leaves me silent -> The leaves were silent all that day.
The ashes lifted high, were falling back into the sea.

Cheers ;)

Pure Emotion. Pure Power. This is by far one of the best songs ever made.

As silly as it might sound, this track brings me memories of me in Egypt in 2012... I will never forget those days!!! so many memories... it brings me a feeling of nostalgia. I used to listen to this track when I was in Cairo streets walking... this is awesome... I just love it!! it brings me so many memories :/

Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry, don't cry, don't cry, don't cry. Oh screw it. Imma cry. ;-;
