Say Goodbye to me my Friend Your time has come, You've reached the end Your path is long, Your road is far from here And in a Breath the tempest cried, You left the ground, you rode the sky The reaper smiles and tosts to your dismay Will you take me home? Will you let me die or fade away? Promises of Sorcerer's ways have left you cold, your mind astray Your fairyland now colourless and grey And now the land beyond the field, has turned to dust, your mind reveals, Your emerald eyes, now black holes in the sky Will you take me home? Will you let me die or fade away? And there he stands, upon the hill His shallow eyes are watching still Now I see that you might die And now I see that so might I.

Snow lies like a blanket, Frost covers every leaf, Winter is here to stay Or so we believe Night draws in around us, Ice hangs from every tree, Winter will fall upon us Or so we believe Cold seeps all around us Fire we never shall see, Winter has taken a grip here Or so we believe Wolf loose on the hunt now, Prey, lock doors in fear, Winter has fallen on us No sunlight welcome here

O, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing; And the corn it ripens fastest when the frosts are setting in; And when a woman tells me that my fyace she'll soon forget, Before we part, I wad a crown, she's fain to follow't yet. The snow it melts the soonest when the wind begins to sing; And the swallow skims without a thought as long as it is spring; But when spring goes, and winter blows, my lass, an ye'll be fain, For all your pride, to follow me, were't cross the stormy main . O, the snow it melts the soonest when the wind begins to sing; The bee that flew when summer shined, in winter cannot sting; I've seen awa lasses' anger melt betwix'd the night and morn, Ah it's surely not a harder thing to tame a woman's scorn. So bid me not farweell dear - no farewell I'll receive, For you shall set me to the stile, and kiss and take your leave; But I'll stay here till the woodcock comes, and the 'Martin takes his wing, Since the snow aye melts the soonest, lass, when the wind begins to sing... to sing...

Time moves slow as you watch through the trees Where the woodsmen and the jackals Make songs for the queen Now paths appear as the jester lights the lamps Goes dancing through the darkness With the moonlight in his hands And will you stray from the borders to the fields Play riddles with the night-born as they huddle in the leaves And as you sleep, the clocks begin to stop The seasons never change in the kingdom of the lost Take my hand through the garden of blue weed Glowing, swaying in the night Leaves you chocking on the breeze The clock tower above you Chimes six bells for the sun As the blind witch of the forest Plays her fiddle just for fun Now you try to return by the pathway through the trees But the lamplights start to go out As the jester takes his leave As you dance on the water the piper plays his song Were you ever seen again now the carnival has gone?

Cast adrift by my forest rose I aspied a maiden She saw I bleed, so help me please To find my way nowhere You never were, you never are A tower among the sadness Oh no not I, I long to die, Upon the paths to nowhere Her sweet perfume no longer sweet I poison to my senses She bled me dry, so help me try To find my way to nowhere You never were, you never are A flower among the sadness Oh no not I, I long to die Upon the paths to nowhere

Somewhere over head, breaches the horizon, Comes forth the savages of time Somewhere far below lays a frozen people, Drowned by the flooding of the light But you wish you want to die, All the darkness in your eyes, And your brain Now you’ve seen this all before Devils knocking at your door, For the orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night, The orphans of the sky, Now you want to see, Now you want to hear, Sounds that have echoed long ago, All this make believe, All the time you suffered, Clinging on to what you used to know, But it tricks you in the end, Puts the key back in your hand, again, Never meant to fade away, But the darkness will betray For the orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night, The orphans of the sky, For the orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night, The orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, The orphans of the sky, Whisper on the wind, whisper in the night, The orphans of the sky.

about

Recorded amidst the fallout of the next global zombie apocalypse, the EP serves as a soothing soundtrack to the end of civilisation and is sure to help lift the spirit amidst the oncoming tides of the undead.

Aside from the accompanying ambiance of Armageddon, the EP, recorded in front of the rapturous audience of a solitary passing tinker and his Border Collie, should be played at such a volume to repel lethal doses of radiation and toxic viral dust clouds.
