Awaken (Asrai)

Wake up little girl We’re running out of time I know that you’ve been running On a long, lost line They cut your tongue in pieces Denied you any rights They burned you with their secrets And taunted you to bite You never fear the darkness The light will only see The struggle you’ve been into The gashes on your knees The chains of filth and aching The barbs of suffering They almost seem more beautiful Than this life Just let her sleep. On a bed of wild roses Seems peaceful to me. Thorns pierce her skin As I kiss her goodnight. I kiss her goodbye I never know, so tell me The colour of your eyes It turns all red and scorches Every time I ask you why Frightened of the truth Or can’t I recognize the lie Can I ever find the courage? To conquer this and… Just let her sleep. On a bed of wild roses Seems peaceful to me. Thorns pierce her skin As I kiss her goodnight . I kiss her goodbye Do I wear the mask of your enemies There's no echo of this sorrowed land The scars are buried deep All your trails so many years Still hunting for the things unknown to man Just let her sleep. On a bed of white roses Seems peaceful to me. Thorns pierce her skin As I kiss her goodnight. I kiss her goodbye
