Epoch (Left Behind)

I asked you for a promise

I asked you for a smile

Take all this strife and worry

Let me know it's all worthwhile

 

I knelt down to the candle

I looked up to the sky

You said my cross would point true north

Said it won't let me die

 

That's what I thought I always wanted

Never dead, never forgotten

Told that someone would see this through

But now here in this empty room

I'm wondering if I'll see you soon

And I know you can't be far

 

My friends, they sealed a pact

And signed it with their blood

Then I knelt down and thought I knew

But I misunderstood

 

Then I came home

You were gone by day

I was deserted at the altar

Where you said it would be okay

 

'Cause what I thought I always wanted

Never dead, never forgotten

Didn't mean I'd live for you

But now here in this empty room

I'm wondering if I'll see you soon

And I know I pushed too far

 

So now I use the stars

Because they always giude me home

That cross lays shattered in my heart

I'm pledged to the vast unknown

 

I know there'll be no infamy

That goes down with this song

I know that I

Cannot atone

But when I draw this blade for you

I know that it is strong

And when the waves tear me in two

I know it won't be long

'Til I'll see the ones who knelt beside me

See the ones who won't defy me

 

I hope that when you see this

You'll read the whole thing through

And I hope that all my hate

Can be my sorrow unto you

 

'Cause what I thought I always wanted

Never dead, never forgotten

Never meant I'd be byyour side

But now here in this empty room

I'm wondering if I'll see you soon

But I know you're just too far
