Communion For Ravens Lyrics – Phinehas

[Sean McCulloch:]
The smell of wine turned
Bread beneath the gallows tree
Ode to the nameless: a hooded child
Communion for Ravens

No hope to lose; no past to mourn
Born a slave deep in the earth
A famine-stricken cursed womb
Nothing is sacred
The only escape is death
You would torture my family
To litter my tomb

I refuse to live dead any longer
Hooks on the wall over open flame (silence escape)
Bowing heads into the earth (no hope; no name)
Hooks on the wall over open flame (silence escape)
Bowing heads into the earth (no hope; no name)

I refuse to live dead any longer
I refuse to live dead any longer
I refuse to live dead any longer
I refuse to live dead any longer

The smell of wine turned
Bread beneath the gallows tree
Ode to the nameless: a hooded child
Communion for Ravens

[Jimmy Ryan (Sean McCulloch):]
I saw the stone walls fall
Crushing their will to dust
Swept away with the river’s current
But still, I see every face
(I refuse to live dead any longer)
In blood or in famine
Silence escape
Grow old to die here
No hope; no name

[Both:] I refuse to live dead any longer

[Sean McCulloch & Jimmy Ryan:]
The smell of wine turned
Bread beneath the gallows tree
Ode to the nameless: a hooded child
Communion for Ravens

[Sean McCulloch (Jimmy Ryan) {both}:]
{I refuse to live dead any longer}
I refuse to live dead any longer
(I refuse to live dead any longer)
I refuse to live dead any longer
(I refuse to live dead any longer)
