lyrics

Poveglia

Shifting lights from the shore, where man he dares to tread no more.
They still wonder this place, and time forgot their name their face.
This whole land is a tomb, their shadows we see by the light of the moon.
And here they remain, a fate that sealed eternal pain.

Sing, forgotten, let us hear.
Damned and betrayed, bound to this place as the world looked on.
Sing, forgotten, make us see.
Poveglia’s lands, what dwells in your sands now your secrets gone?

We are bound to this place, live in death we find no peace.
Hide away from the world, this solitude you would disturb.
And to never know why. We came here to live but you sent us to die,
As we wonder, destined to rise, forevermore with helpless cries.

Sing, forgotten, let us hear.
Damned and betrayed, bound to this place as the world looked on.
Sing, forgotten, make us see.
Poveglia’s lands, what dwells in your sands now your secrets gone?
See the shattered remains, of those that passed within this place,
Roaming these halls, the whispering walls they all curse your name.
And what would they say? Would they ask you “Leave this place”?
We who belong, sing sorrows song.
And we shall forevermore.
