The Wedlock Observation

This song is by Witherscape and appears on the album The Inheritance (2013).

Consumed with desire, approaching the home that made him believe
Everything's silent, the darkness will never deceive

He can be alone in his home, he can hide from the world there
He's staying away from them all, doesn't want to be known there

The open door reveals this hell
Inside the horrors of the night

All the people from the village strewn
A hundred faces that died screaming

He's falling to pieces, he falls to the ground, and he prays it's a dream
He's dying in silence, he's dying to see her again

From the cellar he hears a scream, he can't believe what he finds there
There she stands before him again,

(Erik:) "Please don't leave me alone here"

Now is the time to hear the tale
Finding the truth between the lies
Now is the time to face this truth
He looks upon her with dead eyes

He's falling to pieces, he falls to the ground, and he prays it's a dream
He's dying in silence, he's dying to see her again

(Astrid:)
"I was taken far away, in the night, from mother's arms, my father tried
Buried deep, shameful he, for the evil brought to life, village woman, hide my name

Born like me, was a brother, a different path for the wake
A better life, with higher value, brings the savior of shame
A family of wealth comes calling, adopting the boy as their own
Left only with a promise, you must never return"

It's all so clear, he realizes. As he stands before his twin, with memories of what they've done
Born of incestuous wedlock, She's the child of the curse, given to him, the heart of gold

For the priest filled with fire, draws a stone with delight
Driving force to deliver, his end to arrive in time

He's drowning in fire, he falls to the ground, and he prays it's a dream
Waiting forever, the darkness is welcoming him

They're falling to pieces, he's losing the only thing he's ever loved
He's dying to hold her

(Astrid:)
"You're welcome to die in my arms"

(Erik:)
"Oh, I'm falling to pieces
Falling to pieces
Dying alone, fading forever
Fading forever
Oh, I will be waiting
Don't wait for me"

(Astrid:)
"You will live on through our unborn child"
