Lyrics
I've been waiting for so long
For someone to
Mend all the blame
I've been searching for so long
For something to

Avenge my name

You came here on time
I just hope that it's not to late
I've seen you at night
Biteing the frost of silence
Can you cure us of this fate
Mock the litany in its face
Is that you moatilliatta

I've been waiting for so long
For someone to
Mend all the blame
I've been searching for so long
For something to

Avenge my name

Hex zero rouge
He'll hybernate no more
The altars run dry
Prefect dictate your final words
Does it sting of augur truth
Was your temple left in ruins
Is that you moatilliatta

I've been waiting for so long
For someone to
Mend all the blame
I've been searching for so long
For something to

Avenge my name

This is the altar
The one that you let me die in
On your knees
How you wept
Much like omertta
The quiet has shielded all intent
On the ground it appears
Like wrath
Avenging the lamb as bait
In a bed of nails you made
Who made this effigy
Is there straw dressed in these fields

And now it won't be long

I've been waiting for so long
For someone to
Mend all the blame
I've been searching for so long
For something to
