Lyrics by Paula Albaneze:

Who can say
The moment it began?
And how do I know
I’ve done all I can?

Twisted in me
As I am twisted in you
Buried beneath the world we knew…

Fathers and friends
Lost to themselves
Faces that haunt
Others in shells

Twisted in me
As I am twisted in you
Buried beneath the world we knew…

If I could fight by your side
I would challenge the world
If my heart still is strong
I will stay
Though the winds take my breath
I am strong in your arms
My hand will hold your hand till the end
My hand will hold your hand till the end!

Who can say
The moment we were damned?
And how do we know
We’ve done all we can?

Twisted in me
As I am twisted in you
Spiral into me
As I have spiraled into you

Buried beneath the solid ground
All things are still, without a sound
All that I know is safe in you
Twisted beneath the world we knew.
