The Millstone – 02 – “Submersion”

Posted in The Millstone tagged at 9:42 pm by Matt

Eyes remain open as I slowly sink below
The glare of the sun on the water
May be the last light I ever know
My memory fades with the evening rays
Her memory slips from me
Her
Is she why I am here,
Is she really why I am here?
Forget these memories, I’ll push them all below
Fate rushes over me like coldest winter snow
Rid of my regrets I can finally be free
My past I’ll submerge as the ocean drowns me
I won’t let them take this from me
I will take this from myself first
Before I slip away, into oceanic oblivion
Consumed by mother earth
Forgotten by father time
Crushed by pressure
Beneath the salt and brine
There will I find rest
Freedom in release
These memories I purge
As the water cleanses me
My past so real meets fate surreal
I let this all go
All thought in exile
I let this all go
Forget these memories, I’ll push them all below
Fate rushes over me like coldest winter snow
Rid of my regrets I can finally be free
My past I’ll submerge as the ocean drowns me
