Black birds sing of sorrowful lullaby's.

Longing couples long for no goodbye's.

Dreams of Hope, have been played.

And now all these black roses begin to fade.

Death lies in the hands of a little child.

The chances of living are very mild.

Her heart taking beat of the rhythmless drums.

Every intake of a breath will not become.

Hopeless Identities desperately trying to be found.

But like all others their cries make no sound.

Standing in an empty room filled with beings.

And yet no one understands their feelings.

Bring back the one who said "you".

Bring back the one that would remain true.

But vanished quickly within the mist.

Death has taken him, or so they insist.

Black of the night loomes into the day.

Knowing that light will vanish and dark will stay.

Colors of brilliance flash across the imperfect sky.

And then all the figures, here they lie.

Broken pieces of the heart.

Leaving a trail from the start.

But no one yet has followed them.

And we will never know when.

Sighs escapes the loved ones lips.

And forms with others into an eclipse.

Brightening the moon and sun in every which way.

But out of everyone, there is nothing to say.

Death has come upon us and I know its hard to see.

But looking into night there is nothing we can be.

We fall to the grounds of our shallow earth.

And the fire extinguishes in the lonely hearth.

Black birds sing of sorrowfull lullaby's.

Longing couples long for no goodbye's.

Dreams of hope have been played.

And now all these black roses begin to fade.
