lyrics

Mother raised up a warrior
as she passed him her disease
a life to be lived in the shadow
and the knowledge of what will be
caught within dark infirmary halls
that's where he softly spoke to me

Drops of coffee from a spoon
wild tales of an old friend
the days linger and then fade
but father's faith never wavered
I'm sad to inform you all
things played out as expected

"I had four good years -
when I walked among the living
Before I was chained to this hospital bed
Before these tubes were all that fed
my dying body"
but they could not poison his soul

There's no miracle here, no glorious end
the memory of you stands still
your paintings left unfinished
I still picture you standing
standing one step from the black abyss

"I had four good years -
when I walked among the living
Before I was chained to this hospital bed
Before these tubes were all that fed
my dying body"
but they could not poison his soul

Calm as the desert
with no cure to hold you back
