​The Restless Ones

This song is by Glass Hammer and appears on the album Perilous (2012).

Life's Sunset Gate behind
Sunrise Unknown before
Dare we tread the path
Through Death to Life?

I can see a way ahead
Past stones that bear the names
Of those who went before us
They were left in darkness long ago
We dare not dwell among them

The grass is growing green
O'er each and every head
They cry out in their sleep
These restless ones,
They ever long for life
They'll soon have ours if we but linger

Each saddened shade,
They rise up with a will
Defying our intentions
Memories of deeds
We need to leave here

They flee but never far
We run but they pursue
With fell intent they race
We turn but they recede

The grass is growing green
O'er each and every head
They cry out in their sleep
These restless ones, they ever long
We dare not join their number

Through this graveyard old
Past its mounds of sorrow
She and I must go
And ever seeking home
My Love, my Love
Somewhere up ahead!
