lyrics

I can talk to the dead
I can hear their stories
I find I'm inscribed with the lines of
Whispered eulogies
Buried hands, heavy with time
Buried words, burning in lime
I'm here, I'm hearing history

I call out to the dead
And I sing their harmonies
I turn in the earth at the birth of
Blood-stained symphonies
Smothered sounds, heavy with time
Smothered mouths, burning in lime
No more, no mortality


Sing me your lives,
Sing yourselves free
Stretch out through time
Take your breath from me
Open my eyes and you shall see
I'll give my life so you can be


I awaken the dead
And I live their memories
I'm reviving the lives that have dried
In the wastes of purgatory
Hollow hearts, heavy with time
Hollow souls, burning in lime
My home, my only family


We're calling you from the catacombs
And we're crawling out of the catacombs
Streets are caving into the catacombs
From our graves we'll sing in the catacombs
Walls are crumbling into the catacombs
Floors are tumbling into the catacombs
You've unchained this song from the catacombs
Yet your soul belongs to the catacombs
So awake


I awaken the dead
And I live their memories
I'm reviving the lives that have dried
In the wastes of purgatory
Hollow hearts, heavy with time
Hollow souls, burning in lime
My home, my only family


Sing for our lives
Sing ourselves free
Stretch out through time
Steal your breath softly
Open your eyes so we may see
We'll take your life so we can be
