lyrics

Darkness fell like frozen ink
Blocking out the light you'd think
Darkness fell like frozen night
Crushing love I swear it might

What once was open hastened shut
The deep dark cold it froze my blood
What once was open hastened shut

Darkness rose like seething mist
Clenching life in its cold fist
Darkness rose like naked fear
Creeping slowly from the rear

Who once was blithe now burdened down
As greedy cold crept from the ground
Who once was blithe now burdened down

My mind is flooded by black thaw
Washing away the good I saw
A cold cold weight pushes me down
A ring of ice, the devil's crown
My mind is flooded by black thaw
Washing away the good I saw
A cold cold weight pushes me down

And with the light went all the warmth
Into which I had been born
Once its reassuring hands
Held my life
but now it ends

This little land I call my soul
Its boundaries shaken to the fall
This little land once stood so tall

My mind is flooded by black thaw
Washing away the good I saw
A cold cold weight pushes me down
A ring of ice, the devil's crown
My mind is flooded by black thaw
Washing away the good I saw
A cold cold weight pushes me down

My mind is flooded by black thaw
Washing away the good I saw
A cold cold weight pushes me down
A ring of ice, the devil's crown
My mind is flooded by black thaw
Washing away the good I saw
A cold cold weight pushes me down

This little land I call my soul
Its boundaries shaken to the fall
