Track Name: Bleak And Hollow
There is no one left / Their tales untold
The air is thin up here / And the trail's gone cold
The narrow pass awaits / Daylight has grown old
Like a needle through a thread / I've got a trembling hold
Drop everything and run

I've got no one else / to share this heavy load
Lean into the wind / And climb this broken road
Echoes frozen still / Embedded in this stone
Fingernail the ledge / Trying to let it go
Drop everything and run

Drifts of cast-off bone / And the sun is gone
The Age Of Man has passed / And there is no dawn
There is no escape / From this winter song
I don't have the strength / To carry on
