lyrics

The passage of time is not on our side
Patience is lost, succumb to the frost
This ravaged retreat, we're trapped beneath
A shelter for forgotten souls
Beneath the clouds and amongst the cold

The blizzard's unwelcoming veil
Has engulfed me on my trail
Within the labyrinth of pine
I must search for the shrine

Foretold in the forests of old
A temple of gods, seen only in snow
Where I must go and plead with the spirits
That hold the fate of my soul

Let me pass without losing my life
And I shall return to you with a sacrifice

Deliver it unto our arms, let it sleep amidst the flames
We will accept this sacrifice in place of your pain
A life without honor shall bring only tears
A clear path awaits those who hold within themselves
A heart free from fear
A heart free from fear

The passage of time is not on our side
Patience is lost, succumb to the frost
Ravaged retreat, we're trapped beneath
A shelter for forgotten souls

Remembrance is just a dream
Telling my intentions what the past has foreseen
Is my mind deceiving me, on the edge of sanity
Have I conversed with gods or am I within a mirage
The snow surrounds me
Am I the sacrifice of which they speak

My frostbitten limbs no longer fight.
I trudge for my life at the onset of night

Deliver it unto our arms
Let it sleep amongst the flames
We will accept this sacrifice
In place of your pain

Embracing the warmth, our surrender to the storm
Incased in this frozen womb
This landscape shall become my
Immortal tomb

My immortal tomb

The passage of time is not on our side
Patience is lost, succumb to the frost
Ravaged retreat, we're trapped beneath
A shelter for forgotten souls
