Severance

This song was originally written and performed by Dead Can Dance. Gotham features both a live and studio recorded version of the song, and in their usual fashion for covers, this one is a very literal cover.

Severance
The birds of leaving call to us
Yet here we stand
Endowed with the fear of flight

Overland
The winds of change consume the land
While we remain
In the shadow of summers now past

When all the leaves
Have fallen and turned to dust
Will we remain
Entrenched in our ways

Indifference
The plague that moves throughout the land
Omen signs
In the shapes of things to come

Tomorrow’s child is the only child

When all the leaves
Have fallen and turned to dust
Will we remain
Entrenched in our ways

Indifference
The plague that moves throughout the land
Omen signs
In the shapes of things to come
