Goodbye Sister Janus
written by: Jak Locke

version 2:
from Post-Apocalyptic Hymnal (December 3rd 2008) (4:24)
A shadow's breeze leaves eternal echoes
Far and silent I can see them all
It's a tired sunrise painted in a foreign shade
It's the voiceless sand where the wisemen crawl

I don't claim to understand the reasons
I don't claim to catch the wind and follow it
I just feel the tides when they decide to turn
I just hear the shore when she submits

And it never was my place to try and save you
Nor play sanctum to a siren left behind
To be slave with promises of no recompense
Besides, I never was the hero kind

version 1:
from Battery Acid (November 25th 2005) (4:40)
A shadow's breeze leaves eternal echoes
Far and silent I can see them all
It's a tired sunrise painted in a foreign shade
It's the voiceless sand where the wisemen crawl

I don't claim to understand the reasons
I don't claim to catch the wind and follow it
I just feel the tides when they decide to turn
I just hear the shore when she submits

And it never was my place to try and save you
Nor play sanctum to a siren left behind
To be slave with promises of no recompense
Besides, I never was the hero kind
