Autumn Dream

from by Blues Funeral



There was a whisper that was tearing at my mind
Like a dagger that smelled so sweet
A constant reminder of the guilt for my crime
I always knew we were never meant to be

I rode for days, unto the place where I first saw you
Thought I could chase a glimpse of sun once last time
There was a haze that manifested in the forest
It was a maze I knew I’d never escape

Like writhing snakes, the onyx tresses of your hair
Lay scattered still beneath the old oak tree
As if to warn of some impending danger
Perhaps the hemlock will finally set me free

It haunts me,
Your frozen stare,
A burden,
We will never share,

The scarlet tears that hide your emerald eyes
Recall the first time the raven sang for me
Somewhere inside there was a feeling of jubilee
Perhaps another lie about the man I used to be

Strange patterns of leaves on the ground
A place for me to search for peace
There is a hope that one day you’ll forgive me
For the pain I saw one autumn in a dream

My eyes close
Lying next to you
It’s over now
The life we never knew

Blues Funeral Houston, Texas

Following a temporary hiatus for Sanctus Bellum in November of 2014, Sanctus Bellum members, Jan Kimmel, Cory Cousins, and Maurice
Eggenschwiler immediately formed Blues Funeral
recruiting Gabe Katz on bass, and spent the next several
months writing.
This has culminated into a diverse array of proto-metal
and progressive rock very much steeped in a vision of the music from the 60’s and 70’s.
