I've dug a graveyard in which to bury the faults of my brothers, a sanctuary of stone and silence where the hurt forgive and the ripped forget. Amongst the graves, a shrine bears your name.

From a distance I’ve been watching you grieving and mourning in anger, but I’ve seen better in you.

Aggression is boiling beneath your skin; I can see it burning you alive.

Is it all that you carry inside, blinding hatred?
Is it all that you strive for, spiteful vengeance?

Of all the things you’ve left behind, your anger should have been first.
This fortress you’ve built around yourself will soon show its breaches.

And I've been thinking (and I've been thinking) of the lies we told ourselves.
And I've been thinking (and I've been thinking) of the promises we've made (I believed in you).

I’m done with the war of silence; I’m no pawn on anyone’s board. This is my call to forgiveness, a demand at your feet but even on my knees I won't let the world break me.

As your eyes lose their fondness for all harmonious things, your heart grows colder.

Find the strength to entomb me; I am the end of your fury.
Bury me; let my gravestone stand as a monument of absolution.
