By Cort LaCasse

Only we in shallow grave will know
When comes first, naught but snow,
We find ourselves, on beggar’s ground
See the circle, but do not come ‘round

He lies waiting, not for you, but me
Upon a promise kept, from a malevolent dream

When those who’ve vacated have truly forgotten
When we who lie here have become truly rotten

Then and then only will we sleep in peace
When we’ve known each other in a true embrace
We then find ourselves, within a crease
One forgotten, one we’ve yet to face
