Carnifex - CEMETERY WANDER Lyrics


Graves beneath my feet
Dead grass and dead memories
These are the stories of the recently deceased
17 years old I still remember the day
My life changed when I lowered a child into the grave

Her mother stood over her, cuffed and chained
With her moment of silence, this is what she said
I love you little angel, I didn’t mean what I did
No I love you’s brought anyone back from the dead
They walked her out of there, shot gun in her back,
I have so many memories and a lot are worse than that
Dead in my arms
We’ve already been there

The soldier that that took his life, in front of his wife
She watched a bullet leave the back of his head
Life just isn’t right
We did an open casket for him that day
When I close my eyes I can still see his face

I’m not saying life is pointless
In the context of time and space
We are not important
Find what you love, hold it close
Make the most of it
Two teenage couples out on graduation night
Celebrating all the things ahead of them in life
My morning was three teenagers in the reefer
One in ICU but death still got to her

I saw her ghost in the cemetery later that same day
Blonde hair pulled back, I know it’s cliche

Cemetery wander and I remember every body I put in the ground
Three bodies a day for three years
I’ve got so many of ghosts around
I laid my hands on every single one
I knelt and prayed with their loved ones
I locked the casket when it was done
Let’s give in to our true nature
Turn on the ones you love

Eat the young
I have baggage
I have demons

You don’t want to met them
You don’t want to see them
I laid six souls in the ground that day,
That’s why they stick to me
I just want you to hear it
I just want you to feel it
You know I’m laughing at these lyrics
I just need you to get it
I just need you to live it

And never forget it
I just want you to cringe
So think twice about reading this

Cemetery wander and I remember every body I put in the ground
Three bodies a day for three years, I’ve got so many of ghosts around
I laid my hands on every single one I knelt and prayed with their loved ones
I locked the casket when it was done

Cemetery wander and I remember ever body I put in the ground
Three bodies a day for three years, I’ve got so many of ghosts around
