The Sunken Place

Music: Viktor Jonas | lyrics: Andy Walmsley

Welcome, my friend, welcome to the end
Welcome to the sunken place
Where there is no salvation
And there is no escape

No-one will hear you screaming
Not quite dead, not truly dreaming

As you sink towards the bottom
Falling farther from the light
Into a nightmare neverending
Slowly sinking, still descending

Deeper and deeper and deeper we go, falling into the abyss
Weaker and weaker and weaker we grow, unable to resist

The chilling siren song
Telling us this is where we belong

If this is truly hell, itís one we made all by ourselves

Oblivion now beckons, arms wide open to embrace
As we sink, succumb, surrender, to the call of the sunken place

Cold, and alone
Cold, and alone
Cold, and alone
Lost in the darkness
Cold and alone

A rictus smile upon your face
Staring out through glassy eyes
Windows to the soul still trapped inside

Oblivion now beckons, arms wide open to embrace
As we sink, succumb, surrender, to the call of the sunken place

The silence is deafening
A silence so loud
It swallows everything
And slowly drags you down
