Katatonia - Heart Set to Divide lyrics

[Intro]
In times of surrender I am shedding my scars
I was sick
But I was set for the stars
The robe wasn't mine, but I wore it still
In the sunset of age
On the weight of my limbs
And closed was the door to my past perception
And my disposition
Had then been changed
I opened my mind to all the love forsaken
You saw my white flag
You saw our shadows merge

[Verse 1]
Through tides of repentance
My words led to deed
In their wake
See how I sway
Eyes fixed on the horizon
Bleak as it seems
I let the words relapse
And return to a dream
Then glide into the nights
All my memories unbroken
I let the raptors circle me
To become their only prey

[Chorus]
I see the beast laying waste
I see his wings keep unfolding
His name strewn across the sky
And reflected on the world
This is my
Elegy for love
Their covenant
Gold for our blood

[Verse 2]
Came to stay in exile
Transmigration at a halt
I couldn't cross
I had no choice but to make peace
Reach higher ground
Every breath now without a sound
Every breath now without a sound

[Chorus]
I see the beast laying waste
I see his wings keep unfolding
His name strewn across the sky
And reflected on the world
This is my
Elegy for love
Their covenant
Gold for our blood
