Across those empty fields
Rest the prospect of the lost
I drowned so long ago
In the river of my wounds

A web of rotten years
Total eclipse of my soul
I will be away
On the day of your coming

Oh stranger tell me why
I must leave this shelter now
I have waited many lives
In this castle of time

Hollow smiles beyond these clouds
I must keep my images of you
Give me my final hours
It’s the season of mists

The wake has come again
There is no reality
I will always be adrift
In my little web of time

But I’m lost in dreams
And I know
I must go away

I will pass through this shattered night
And leave the fabric of time
Nowhere will you find me out there
All these years are meaningless
Forever lying in the dust or stay

I must go away
I must go away
And leave this shelter of the soul
And lose my memories of love

I must go away
I must go away
There’s a dream in the fabric of time
A tear in the fabric of time

Wandering outside of time, forgotten
Wandering outside of time, it’s so dark
A tear in the fabric of time
A tear in the fabric of life


from Season of Mists (2010), released February 27, 2010
