Umbra

All Songs

See above me the swelling mists
Seek an exit that I won't see
Don't see the future but I've felt the past
The darkness lives on

olim me videre poteram
in viis perspicuitatis ambulans
causa eventusque modo verba longissima erant
futurum habebam

I don't know
I can't see
What this cloud is
Hanging over me
But I do know
Its fire, its weight
Ferocity
Renders my fate
Freedom distant   umbra!
Rise above it   umbra!
Part the mists   cadens!

See reflections ahead of me
But I can't see myself
The years, decades of hasty faltering steps
I can feel the trail

It follows me
A trail of clear blood drops, deep red tears
Long since dried but ever flowing
Hanging from the path

I don't know
I can't see
What this cloud is
Hanging over me
But I do know
Its fire, its weight
Ferocity
Renders my fate
Freedom distant   umbra!
Rise above it   umbra!
Part the mists   cadens!

Cant o benderfyniadau, mil o gamgymeriadau
Hwy a geisiant losgi fy nghalon i ffwrdd
Hwy a welant fil o ddyddiau f'osgoi
Dyddiau fe'u cofiaf ond ni welaf

Every needless thought I've played
Stays near my life to daunt
Every thoughless move I've made
Remains countless here to haunt

I don't know
I can't see
What this cloud is
Hanging over me
But I do know
Its fire, its weight
Ferocity
Renders my fate
But I will break free   umbra!
Rise above it   umbra!
Part the mists   capens!

dolor Regret! Powers me
desiderium Formed by my own
Followed by the shadow of yore
Those works that failed
Decisions never nailed
But I never, I never knew dolor

Be that one day I get it right
Right Right Right
Maybe I've done nothing wrong
But neither have I done it right
All those paths I missed
Words that were all wrong

Want to rise, break out
Pains I've brought to me
Can't live a life of bleak regret
Through the shadows want to see...

Umbra! Umbra! Cadens...

Break free
See through the shadows
Want to see

Capio...
