English Lyrics

Nothing will remain

As dawn breaks
The merciless sun rising

Eyes to the heavens; trying to scream
My words shatter and fall

Clutched softly in the darkness
The cremains of my dreams

My anguish, never to end

Hail the new body born
Precious enmity
All hail the body newly born
I’ll never let you go
All hail the body newly born
My little one
All hail the body newly born
Open your eyes
And burn it all to the ground

VINDICATOR
This pain unforgiven
Evermore

LIBERATOR
This soul unchained
In the darkness

CONSECRATED
This tragedy unforgotten
To the ends of the earth

UNABATED
These tears
None left unshed
My beloved

My beloved
My beloved
My beloved
Nothing will remain

Hail the new body born
Precious enmity
All hail the body newly born
I’ll never let you escape
All hail the body newly born
My avenger
All hail the body newly born
Take flight
And reduce it all to ash

VINDICATOR
This pain unforgiven
Evermore

LIBERATOR
This soul unchained
In the darkness

CONSECRATED
This tragedy unforgotten
To the ends of the earth

UNABATED
These tears
None left unshed
My beloved

My beloved
My beloved
My beloved
Nothing will remain
