He fights his way through the rubble
Fights his through the wood
Clouds of ash above
Are starting to fall loose
It’s mocking me as it lands on his shoulder
This is not the end because this is not over

Search for all the things
Provides him with warmth
Lest nothing but a shelter
In shopkeeper’s doors
It’s this soiled square where he will rest his head
A blanket of trinkets will serve his bed

Sullen Hope
Sullen Hope

Snow falls down in England
It’s landing at his feet
He cannot feel their fingers
Nor at least at the tips
It’s times like these where my old log fire would be used to comfort me
The mixture of snow and ash has found into his hair

Sullen Hope
Sullen Hope

His shoes are torn at the toes
The wind builds it force while he hugs rugged clothes
We sympathise with his pain
Place coins in his lap while he sits asking for change

Sullen Hope
Beats his heart
