I can see the clouds coming down from the mountains to flood this desolated valley with the coldest waters.
These lands will drown. I wish you could grab my hand, but the walls are so high and your grip so weak.
I’ve heard your name in the growling thunder, like if the storm reclaimed your soul, but no force will take you from me.
Oh, please hold on to me.

It’s disheartening to see you fade.
I’ve never been there before.
I never thought I’d hear the call of home again.
This house has become filled with bittersweet resentment, its foundations shaken by the tides of change.

I am the receiver. I felt your pain through distorted signals, consuming me as all hope abandoned your thoughts, but as far as three weeks can tell, you could still be saved.

The windows are fissuring, soon there will be no escape.

Oh, how I wish I realized before.
My arms should have been open to you instead of pushing away the pressure of this situation.
We are lost, we are empty, with nothing to point the way home.
I’ll show you the meaning of true love.
Even in the absence of shelter we remain the shepherds of our hearts.

Where’s the way home?

I hope you find refuge on the high rocks and that the rain washes away the guilt.
I hope you find redemption and that we can still walk hand in hand when the valley will dry.
Same blood, same struggles.

And if you are to be taken away, may these waters bring you to where the sun never sleeps.
And if you are to be taken down, may these waters bring you to higher heights.

Drowning lands.
