The sigh of summer upon my return
Bathed in deep fog, blurring my trail

Still calm with my mind at peace
The lapse of the moment took it's turn
I was foul and tainted, devoid of faith
The hands of God, decrepit and thin
I was taken away from my plight
Branded a jonah with fevered blood

Damp mud burning in my eyes
And all would sneer at my demise
Outcast with dogmas forged below
No mercy would help me on my way

I pledge myself to no-one
All shudder at the call of my name
You'll fear of me
There is no forgiveness in these eyes
Dispel the mist for now

A thistle in my hands
Virtuous shell with kindred innocence
I awoke from the miasma
This is here, waters stir
If you´ll bear with me
You´d never leave me to
