Darkest Blues: Relief That Nothing Can Be Done

This song is by Woods of Ypres and appears on the album Woods III: Deepest Roots and Darkest Blues (2008).

Shallow within the earth, buried deep beneath the snow
You would remain forever young while the rest of us grow old
We would act upon our guilt, a northern burial was your wish
We would obey and fulfill, for your importance is strengthened by your early death

It's the truth in true despair, deepest roots, darkest blues
The belief that all is lost, and that nothing can be done

Forever frozen, never to decompose, your body would be preserved
While we all live, and struggle on, and inherit, the life that you deserved
Your youthful looks remembered, your dignity retained
While there would be no relief for us, and we'd look worse everyday
It's the truth in true despair, deepest roots, darkest blues
The belief that all is lost, and that nothing can be done

In our minds and in our hearts, in frames, you image will hang
On the walls of grieving homes and other places you would never go again

Imagine the things they would say about you, as if they really knew
How your death was premature, but your life was overdue

You have already spent your better years taking your time for granted
It will be yours in the end, but at what price
To have wasted, your entire life
Wishing it all away... Death is a Tease

To venture into the thought of despair and pull yourself back together again
Knowing you had once stood on the edge and almost dove in
Everything had driven me there, another lesson, best learned young:
When you want it, you can't have it, when you don't want it, it's done

For all our guilt, for all our lies, for all we care, we'd gather together to say goodbye
As if the dead can't see the living, they would volunteer to twist the truth
For the comfort of each other and say "He was a good friend of mine"
Make the choice, to stay alive! Existence is your only hope to fight
Not for the love of life or the fear of death, but to save the lies from the breath...

...Of the ones around you, who would speak and cry
And the ones around you who would fake and lie
Who would say that they knew you and that you would be missed
As a storm of admiration buries you again
