about

This is how the journey of the tribe ends. Even after coming so far, they always knew death would come for them. In the end, will anyone know of their lives and the stories that led them to here?

lyrics

[Scout:]
As the winter closes in
And the frost and ice descend
Will nobody know who we were
Our lives forgotten in the end

The snow will cover every trace
And make our footsteps disappear
And once it fades, life will return
As if we never were here

Can you remember what we used to be
We grew into a world taught to fear by all they said
Far from the front lines of an endless war
Just children scared of life and where it led

It's a lie - there was no way we could live on
And in time, our memories grow cold
So we die - here the journey ends forever
With a grave on blood red snow

Struggling to remember why I’m here
Finding words for countless names unknown
Crumbling images of walking with the tribe
But now I’m lost, unbearably alone
Nowhere left to go

Now this is all that I can give to you
These memories and words that go unheard

It's a lie - there was no way we could live on
And in time, our memories grow cold
So we die - here the journey ends forever
With a grave on blood red snow

[Girard:]
Why don’t you kill me
After all I have done
Just one more wound
Will take my life from your hands
And end it all
Take your revenge now
For your pain and his life
Don’t turn your back
And leave me in the cold

[Scout:]
Cold... how long has he remained
Memento of a life
For no one to recall
His name and all that we have fought for
Will fade into time, forgotten by all

But still there’s hope for remembrance
As my memory fades
Keep holding on to one thing
And leave this barren place
Survive the last stretch
Through the wind and the cold
We can’t change our stories
But they still can be told

To tell of the journey
To tell of the tribe
To tell of the final days
Of eight poisoned lives

So they know who we were
So they know what we saw
So the story has meaning
Now I’m heading north

I feel the Keeper watching over us
Beyond this fading world
He sees what we’ve become
Forgetting what we used to be
Our lives, our journey and the tribe

It's a lie - there was no way we could live on
And the cold kills everything we know
So we die - here the journey ends forever
With a grave on blood red snow

It’s a lie - there is no way I can live on
Now I’ve lost my precious cat and crow
When I die, maybe then we'll be united
Underneath the blood red snow
We’ll be gone

Lost to time
We’ll sleep beneath the snow
