Insomnium - Lay The Ghost To Rest Lyrics




Frequented by displeasing memories
Haunted by the creatures born of night
Sunk deep in the dejection and distress
Weak and powerless to severe the ties

Bound in the dream world
Wide-awake for every hour of sleep
Faltering towards the future
Only to come across with the past

No hope beacons here
No rays of light lingers
Underneath the black earth
Where the forgotten wait

No love resides here
No solace can be found
Underneath the cold soil
Where the sleeping gods lie

There is nothing to remember
When you are lost
There is nothing to strive for
When you are gone

Now rest for you are tired, let it go
Dive into sleepless dream, embrace oblivion
The moments of light between the darkness
Are brief and flee fast in the house of dead

Searching my way out of confusion
In this cold night cold as my heart
Trying to find a resolution
Assurance and strength to just go on

I'm in the thousand winds that blow
In the circling flight of blackbird
In the stars that shine at night
In the last dying rays of light
Be gone sorrow, leave your dead behind
Stay away grief, lay the ghosts to rest

    In the last dying rays of light."

    Okay so I LOVE this album (it was the first album of theirs I went out to the store to buy) but good lord, is it poorly produced. I was listening to this song with headphones a few weeks ago and it sounded so muddled; I didn’t remember it sounding like that. Could do with some cleaning up. Great album nonetheless.

    My favorite

    5:15 to the end hit me hard.

    There's hardly any views on music this good (metal in general) because people like the same shit. BORING.

    People these days just want something to hear on the radio.

    Metal is for people who want to LISTEN to music. Music that requires you to sit and take time.

    I had one of my friends listen to this, but I had to make sure he understood the point to this type of music. The feels. I said to listen closely to the guitars, drums, and symphonic music and to forget about the death growl because they’re not the focal point. He got goosebumps. Then he listened to it again while reading the lyrics and he shit himself because they’re so deep.
