lyrics

well her voice was a whisper as she reached out to me
and she told me he went to the lord
she was lovely and helpless and alone in this world
so i told her don’t cry anymore
she surrendered to me in the dead of the night
so as not to be left on her own
and i reasoned that being a scoundrel’s alright
cause it’s better than being alone

through all her sorrow and through all her pain
the lust in my soul was all that remained
and thank god your brother did not die in vain
what have I done
what have I done

now the demons they rape me and pick at my mind
I’m caught between archers and blood
and a flower cries out that justice was served
as slowly it drowns in the mud
but I’ll fix it all with this barrel of steel
and turn myself into a tree
I’ll move into this circle to try and escape
but I know I’ll never be free

through all her sorrow and through all her pain
the lust in my soul was all that remained
and thank god your brother did not die in vain
what have I done
what have I done
