​Elegy

This song is by Edge of Sanity and appears on the album Purgatory Afterglow (1994).

Crying.
The anger and sorrow in your eyes
Is shining through your disguise,
You can not hide all your lies!
Falling.
The abyss you enter is so deep,
It doesn't matter how much you will weep,
You will never reach the ground again.

You're draining your emotions,
The poison is your God.
Injection for depression.
The needle is your rod.
Your heart will never feel.
The love that it will steal.

Next time you see the stars alight,
Like diamonds in the winter night.
Do think of me, remember me.
So reads my elegy.
Next time I see the stars shine bright
Like white eyes in the darkened light,
I'm free no chains are holding me.
But still I live by your elegy.

Leaving.
The world I leave will never know.
But below you will see my glow
And the fire shall be eternal.
Weeping.
The tears you cry, I know the taste.
Can't you see they're such a waste.
You can never bring me back again.

You will never know what happened
But I could not go on.
It felt like I was running
A race that no man ever won.
My soul will always love
The ones I am far above...

Next time you see the stars alight,
Like diamonds in the winter night.
Do think of me, remember me.
So reads my elegy.
Next time I see the stars shine bright
Like white eyes in the darkened light,
I'm free no chains are holding me.
But still I live by your elegy.

Tears are falling,
In the dark.
Your fears are calling.
I've left my mark.

Burning.
The flames that rise will be my end.
So on for now I will pretend
That I am back on earth again.
Lonely.
The shadows haunt me as I burn.
Now I know there is no return.
My soul will slowly turn to dust.

I'm passing through dimensions
Where no one's ever been.
I'm heading for the secrets
That no man's ever seen.
What lies below below
Will I ever know?

Next time you see the stars alight,
Like diamonds in the winter night.
Do think of me, remember me.
So reads my elegy.
Next time I see the stars shine bright
Like white eyes in the darkened light,
I'm free no chains are holding me.
But still I live by your elegy.
