Spigrene (Original English version)

The Nails:

Lyrics: Atkin

I watched when the sickness arrived
I watched it change all of our lives
I watched in revulsion, I watched in disgust
I watched it change all of our lives

I stood silent as choices were made
I stood silent for I was afraid
I stood silent too often, silent too long
I stood silent for I was afraid

God has condemned us to die
God has condemned us to die
Oh! God has condemned us to die

Are we to die then as well?
Are we all destined for hell?
Are we to survive, or are we to join them?
Are we all destined for hell?

We nailed them into their homes
We nailed them to die there alone
We nailed the healthy in with the dying
We nailed them to die there alone

Oh and we damned them to die
Oh and we damned them to die
Oh we have damned them to die

I wept for myself in the cold
I wept as the sickness took hold
I wept as I rotted, wept for my soul
I wept as the sickness took hold

I listened as the nails went in
I listened as they nailed me within
I listened to the silence, that followed thereafter
Listened as they nailed me within
