lyrics

The Silence that I feel is killing me...​

The last nail pierces the hand,
but the pain of the flesh
is nothing compared to that
of the spirit.

I don’t hate you, men.
I would be dead just the same before long.
A man can’t live alone
with his ghosts for long.

If only I could be sure
not to be forgotten by you,
this agony would be
as sweet as honey.

I can’t hear your voice,
maybe I misunderstood your will?
Break this deafening
Silence that surrounds me,
I beg you...

Three times I died for you, Father,
for the ideal you’ve sown in my heart.
And not even the desert
has succeeded in eradicating this plant.

The first time I died for you was
when I abandoned the materiality of my existence,
disowning my own mother…

The second time was
when I understood,
when I understood what your plan was.
I closed my eyes,
and I saw it.

This is the third time,
I die while thorns are
wrapping round my mind,
nailed to a cross with my ideals.

If only I could be sure
not to be forgotten by you,
This agony would be
as sweet as honey.

I can’t hear your voice,
maybe I misunderstood your will?
Break this deafening
Silence that surrounds me...

Your silence pierces me more
than these sharp long nails.
I want only a sign
of your approval.

Spread your arms, hug me
and speak to me,
disperse these horrible spectres
that are devouring my soul.

Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.

I thirst.
Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.

Woman, this is your son. This is your mother.

It is finished.

And now that I know
you’re an illusion,
all my castles crumble into dust
and drag me to the cliff’s end.

The shadows get longer,
reality loses its shape,
I feel a Silence
that desperately cries
and roughly chokes my thoughts.

I am dying…

My God, my God,
why have you
forsaken me?

Into the Silence
alone I sink with
my broken hopes.

It is finished
