Album: End Commence (2004 EP)My Last Midnight
[Lyrics written by Olga Benario - a German Revolutionist. These lines were taken from a letter she wrote to her husband and daughter while detained in a golding cell on the night prior to being put into a gas chamber at the hands of the very Nazis whom she waged war against with her progressive thought and passion to speak out for what was truly right - no matter what toll it would take.]
I WILL REMAIN.
After tonight, I want simply to live for whatever brief future I have left.
You are the one ~ YOU ARE THE ONE ~ who taught me, dearest one,
WHAT STRENGTH of will means, especially when it springs from sources like ours.
I have struggled for the just of the good, for the betterment of the world.
I promise you now as i say farewell ~ FAREWELL
That until the last instant I will give you no reason to be ashamed of me.
Please understand, preparing for death doesn't mean giving up
But knowing how to confront it when it arrives ~ so many things could still happen in the mean time.
I will remain firm and determined to live until the last moment ~ Until the LAST MOMENT.
I've already gone back to dreaming, as i do every night, forgetting that this is to say goodbye
For this reason I will not be able to think about the things that torment my heart
THINGS DEARER TO ME THAN MY OWN LIFE.
