a dark fantasy with strings and an old piano

lyrics

My father was killed by the sun,
Done before life had begun.
My father was killed by the moon and sun.
Don’t even know what was won
By the sun.

My father was killed by the earth
Who didn’t know what he was worth.
My father was killed by the earth and moon,
Taken to somewhere too soon.

My father was killed by the moon and sun,
Something was ended and something begun.
Don’t even know what was won
By the sun.

My father was killed by the air,
Which wasn’t aware he was there.
My father was killed by the air and sky
Silently singing goodbye.

My father was killed by his words
Which nobody ever had heard.
My father was killed by the words inside
Where did they go when he died?

My father was killed by the stars and sky.
They ravaged his body and raised him up high.
Finally taught him to fly
In the sky.

My father was killed by the clouds and air.
They shattered his health and they cut his long hair,
Left him to stare in his chair
At the air.

My father was killed by his son
Who never knew what he had done.
My father was killed by his only son.
A tale as old as the sun had begun.

My father went down in a blaze of pain
He didn’t forgive and he never explained
How he was killed by the rain,
How it drove into his brain.
And he never explained what was won
By the sun.
