about

Unreleased demo from an unreleased ep for the river of hatred.
Vexilla regis prodeunt inferni.

lyrics

If I fall beneath the waves, will you look for me?
Steering into space but it's still so hard to see
My dear, my darling, let the oars go free

Fall into the path of a fresh and fragile start
I won't speak to you because we're miles apart
My dear, my darling, there's hate inside my heart
O, my dear, my darling, make sure that there's
Planes, trains, or cars, a boat that sinks won't take me far
But beneath your feet
This is now my home

There's worse things ahead: let each step in line
Harrow all the halls so I can get what's mine
But dear, my darling, I'm caught up in time

Time calls me back to the place I slept in bed
Let me lay down, gently rest my head
My dear my darling, I'd be better off dead
O, my dear, my darling, make sure that
I make not a sound, trying your name as I drown
Beneath your feet
This is now my home

Oh now planes, trains, or cars
A boat that sinks won't get me far
But beneath the sea
This is now my home.
