lyrics

Standing tall
and crushing on
through the biting and bitter cold...
these are the only coals that still burn,
the undying tinder of
defiant survival,

that glow with a primal strength
steadily in a cyclic
rhythm of determination
overwhelming the bloody
gates of opposition.

hurtling through the night
like a stone that won't stop
thrashing into dawn
with a searing ferver
time wanes, eyes red
in search of alleviation
tearing the will
for a gleam of solace

To the horizon
all sights affixed, ablaze
beset by scavengers
dancing with a reeling hunger
but they inspire no fear
or hatred
only pitied laughter thrown at
their feeble posturing.

And the wind of solemn anguish,
once a gnawing pain lashed upon
what was left
exposed
to feel it's kiss
now a welcome breeze
beckoning
like a frozen mistress

To the horizon
all sights affixed, ablaze
beset by scavengers
dancing with a reeling hunger
but they inspire no fear
or hatred
only left standing tall and
holding on to these cherished embers
carried all the way to the funeral pyre
in calloused palms, and calloused minds
the sustenance that will not tire
blizzards seek no forgiveness
and whip without cruelty
facing the storms would be a lot easier
completely numb
although, it's nice to be warm
