Towers of Silence

from Hounds of Perdition by Wolfhorde

lyrics

I still dream of the beginning of the end
and remember the horrid screams
The looks of disbelief upon the men
as all the remedies failed

With the rodents, rode in the fleas
bearing a gift, their legacy
Abomination, a disease most vile
would bathe the world in anarchy

Ever higher rose the Towers of Silence
and the pyres burned
Befouled and forlorn they lie
and the pyres burned

Upon the towers they were fed
The ravenous scavengers rejoiced
As wildfire, the plague spread
The final prayers left unvoiced

Everything around me, my life
Everything i revered
The memories, hopes, dreams
Turned black, choked and died

Ever higher rose the Towers of Silence
and the pyres burned
Befouled and forlorn they lie
and the pyres burned

The ashes land silently
upon my weeping face
I close my eyes to meet the end
to drown into this purple haze

Ever higher rose the Towers of Silence
and the pyres burned
Befouled and forlorn they lie
and the pyres burned
