about

His duty to the world was over, but his mission was not yet complete. Severin's undying loyalty to the mother had something else for him to do. He whispered into the night, "Severin hears. he listens. And now Severin..." he closed his eyes, "No. Not Severin. Severin is me. I am Severin. and now I know why." He turned, glanced at the fractured heavens and walked away. He vanished into shadows and the glare of oncoming night.

lyrics

He dreams with open eyes.
His tears are red in this light.
He prays with all of his might but in his dreams.
His soul, come dark, come night.
He just wants to be holy.
Holy, see all the glory.
Holy lash after lash will make him worthy.
Make him worry.
Crow's gentle scourge bring him delight.

So give him another dream.
Put him out of his misery.
One more dream.
Let him descend to heaven.
Let him descend to heaven.
One final dream for Severin.

With eyes larger than he could see.
In the centre a temple, a promise.
A harvest that may never be but in his dreams.
His soul come dark, come night.
His body wants to be holy.
Holy, in all of its glory.
Holy scar after scar will make him worthy.
Make him worthy.
Crow's gentle scourge bring him delight.

So give him another dream.
Put him out of his misery.
One more dream.
Let him descend to heaven.
Let him descend to heaven.
One final dream for Severin.

Give him another dream.
Give him a reason to believe.
Give him a scar, a book to read, then let him be.
My Severin.
Give him another dream.
Give him a reason to believe.
Give him a scar, a book to read, then let him be.
My Severin.

Takes on the sin of the world.
My Severin.
Purify, letting his blood, searching the sky.
My Severin.
Takes on the sin of the world.
He doesn't know how.
My Severin doesn't know why.
One final dream, it's..

Severin dreams.

So give him another dream.
Put him out of his misery.
One more dream.
Let him descend to heaven.
Let him descend to heaven.
One final dream for Severin.
