Insomnium – Valediction

Valediction

[Verse 1]
Underneath the blackest soil
I lay down my warm, beating heart
And deep beneath the frozen ground
I bury down my deepest thoughts

[Pre-Chorus]
Because the road I've chosen
Is free of fortune and desire
Or the mundane toil and worry
Because the trail I've taken
Leads down into the darkest shores
Where the stars have passed away

[Chorus]
Tonight, the world is burning
Black smoke hides the skies
Tonight, dark clouds rising up
Swirling, shadows engulf the land
Shadows engulf the land

[Verse 2]
By the side of forsaken path
I leave behind my old shadow
Into the deep under these shores
I drown my broken memories

[Pre-Chorus]
Because the road I've chosen
Is free of fortune and desire
Or the mundane toil and worry
Because the trail I've taken
Leads down into the darkest shores
Where the stars have passed away (Passed way)

[Chorus]
'Cause tonight, the world is burning (Tonight)
Black smoke hides the skies
Tonight, dark clouds rising up
Swirling, shadows engulf the land
Shadows engulf the land

[Bridge]
For something to change (For something to change)
Something has to give
For something to grow (For something to grow)
Something has to yield
I kiss the light goodbye

[Chorus]
'Cause tonight, the world is burning (Tonight)
Black smoke hides the skies
Tonight, dark clouds rising up
Swirling, shadows engulf the land
Shadows engulf the land
