Peel the skin from my bones

And break me into a thousand pieces

Scatter my ashes along the frozen shore

Sink into your doubt

And withdraw from my memory

I'm dead now, anyway

Wade into your scathing sea

But not to retrieve me -

Lost on the horizon

No regret, no guilt

No shame

I'm dead now, anyway

I've drowned here

Below the surface

You don't dare look to see

Pitiful, in some small way

That I lack the luster

To make my demise a tragedy

And in the black night

You see the cold stars

I don't, but it doesn't matter

I'm in the stars and


Dead, now
