Aspen

Aspen

Heavy rain
Compacts the reddened earth
Her exposed face spouts tears
From lifeless eyes

I claw my way from the shallow grave
But I’m dizzy and unclear
I fall back in
Wishing I was the one who died

Through the fog and the black abyss
My mind still wanders there
I fear one day
I won’t return again
Spectral hands lift me away
From the temple of loss
Body numb
I reflect on the time we had

[Chorus 1:]

Taste, smell, this sensation in my limbs
These are things I take for granted to this day
Sight, sound, silent whispers to the wind
Can be lost but not forgot

I bury my dead
Just to know I’m alive
Confined by reality
Wander across the universe

[Chorus 2:]
Taste, smell, this sensation in my limbs
These are things I take for granted to this day
Sight, sound, silent whispers to the wind
Can be lost but not forgot

I envy the dead
Just to know I’m alive
Escape from mortality
Wander across the universe
