Amorphis – War

War

[Verse 1]
Come to me my spirit bird
Pull the hair out from my head
Peck the eyes from shiny skull

Tear the tongue from my mouth
Carry me up to the crag
Shove me down into the sea

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Sink me in the swirling eddies
Down into the deepest depth

[Chorus]
Black is my hearth and my home
Ravaged my abode
All my hopes burnt to cinder
Burnt to cinder

Black is my hearth and my home
Ruined my abode
Everything I built in ashes

[Verse 2]
Come as raven, death descending
Rob my mind and steal my soul
In my best clothing dress yourself

Take my place and what is mine
Go and fly to lightless lands
Soar the skies beneath the ground

[Pre-Chorus 2]
There you can be as I once were
Take my place and what is mine
Rambling, roving, upside down
Soar the skies beneath the ground

[Chorus]
Black is my hearth and my home
Ravaged my abode
All my hopes burnt to cinder
Burnt to cinder

Black is my hearth and my home
Ruined my abode
Everything I build in ashes

[Choir]

[Bridge]
Black is my hearth
Ravaged my abode
Black is my hearth
Ruined my abode

[Verse 2]
Come as raven, death descending
Rob my mind and steal my soul
In my best clothing dress yourself

Take my place and what is mine
Go and fly to lightless lands
Soar the skies beneath the ground

[Chorus]
Black is my hearth and my home
Ravaged my abode
All my hopes burnt to cinder
Burnt to cinder

Black is my hearth and my home
Ruined my abode
Everything I built in ashes
