Requiem

"Requiem" was written in early 2022, inspired by g8s leaving the Inner Circle and the wasteland collective. Together with Fl!ck, he went off to find a way back into the old world. Hope to see them ever alive again was fading soon.

"Stillwater River" mentioned in the lyrics is the place where g8s was seen in the very first story videos. The river banks were where he found his first magic amulet. As a liminal space and a spot "where you can easily bring fire to meet water, air and earth" it was one of g8s' favourite places to perform his shamanistic rituals.

Lyrics

grief
a requiem

who knows what’s lying past the gates
desires?
dark depths of the psyche
one of us gone astray

fall like a meteor
as we hold on to the past
and as you fall forever
your memory shall last

Stillwater River trembling in grief
may the spirits guide your way
until the waters enter the sea
until the tides washour doubts away

a dark moon rising
sigils are cold
until your knowledge will unfold again

Stillwater River trembling in grief
may the spirits guide your way
until the waters enter the sea
until the tides wash our doubts away

there is a moment
in every dawn
when first light is spilled
and the waters will moan
the world holds its breath

you lived for the moment
you made us believe
that nothing’s meant to stay
with us, your legacy remains
with us, you will live for another day
none of us is getting out alive

and some things can’t be changed

every hour wounds
but only the last one kills
fear is contagious
just as death
when cold blood is spilled
live for another day

you left us more
than you ever tried to give
keep wandering on
