lyrics

One dark dawn
Two kids skipped upon
Dirty leaves beneath dead trees
Towards the house
Others whispered about
You dared me with a touch of my knee

Who's the old man at the top of the hill
With those ghostly eyes he beckons us near
Who's the old man at the windowsill
With arms outstretched, he welcomes his kill
His shadow falls on
The forgotten young
In the lost breeze he sings

One bright dawn
Two kids came upon
Lustful hands and bloodthirsty need
He looked at me
My eyes fell on you
And we knew we must end him

We left his land
Holding hand-in-hand
But separate and silent
We grew to be lords
But I still adore
Every breath we shared in that space

Who's the old man at the top of the hill
With those ghostly eyes he beckons us near
Who's the old man at the windowsill
With arms outstretched, he welcomes his kill
His shadow falls on
The forgotten young
In the lost breeze he sings
