I Will Lay Down My Bones Among The Rocks And Roots (Wolves in the Throne Room)

The torment has ended The beast has done his work Great fires rage outside of this wooded sanctuary But soon they will be quenched by a purifying rain The embers of the ceremonial fire burn to ash A new warmth stirs within the center of the earth I am alone here no more The wood is filled with the sounds of wildness The songs of birds fill the forest on this new morning This will be my new home Deep within the most sacred grove The sun god is born anew I will lay down my bones among the rocks and roots of the deepest hollow next to the streambed The quiet hum of the earth's dreaming is my new song When I awake, the world will be born anew
