Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well I recall his parting words
Must I accept his fate
Or take myself far from this place
I thought I heard a black bell toll
A little bird did sing
Man has no choice
When he wants everything
Verse 2
We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride
Verse 3
Man goes beyond his own decision
Gets caught up in the mechanism
Of swindlers who act like kings
And brokers who break everything
The dark of night was swiftly fading
Close to the dawn of the day
Why would I want him
Just to lose him again
Verse 4
We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride
Verse 5
We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride
