Sakura

Sakura.
Sakura.
Will you wait for my return?


Dark fog blackening sky.
Fumes clog every eye.
Glazed shut permanent gray.
Smoke blots every ray.

Forgive me, Sakura.
I was away too long.
Don't be angry with me.
This was my legacy.

Steel wires, towering spires.
Bagger leads to the fire.
Hopeless wasteland of home.
This is where I was born.

Forgive me, Sakura.
Fall from the skies and bury us now.
I was away too long.
Sent from the mines to tear our hope down.
Don't be angry with me.
Creature of darkness, fair in her name.
This was my legacy.
Creator destroys while crying in pain.

There's a madness in the hearts growing bold.
Sad redeemers now turning to gold.
In the night the sky illuminates.
Like the sun under heaven's gates.

Fall from the skies and bury us now.
Sent from the mines to tear our hope down.
Creature of darkness, fair in her name.
Creator destroys while crying in pain.

Forgive me, Sakura.
I was away too long.
Don't be angry with me.
This was my legacy.
