So soon the moon will come unfold her robe of constellations And for a time the night was mine in endless fascination But now she brings me only shadows and a host of memories Marching on Endlessly Like a ghostly brigade Marching on - Doomed parade
But now she's gone away (She was here) Forever, I'm afraid (She was real) No longer shall the night, from the sun Provide its blessed shade
I saw her with my eyes (She was real) I touched her with my hands (She was here) Right here in this room it was She whispered in my ear Lost forever... to hell.
Here is a wound, To go with your uniform Here is a message, you'll never forget Back in your tomb, reaping your true reward The path you have chosen, you'll learn to regret
"Sleep, angel sleep. Be not a ghost trapped in the light Be as the day, and pass away Into the night."
The night moves like a glacier, slow and cold Yet rage takes over as I see the plan unfold So that's your game, to take away the only friend I?ve ever made In this place How we laughed At the ghostly brigade Marching on - Doomed parade
I must say I'm impressed Such cruelty in a jest The depth of your malevolence, the fools would never guess
