Eight Thousand Sorrows Deep Lyrics

4. Eight Thousand Sorrows Deep (4:14)
(In July 1995, in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica, some 8000 Bosnian Muslims were systematically deported and killed by units of the Army of Republika Srpska.
This genocide is considered to be the largest mass murder on European soil since the end of World War II.
Due to bureaucratic errors and political concerns, no significant military action was taken by the UN to protect victims, leaving them at the mercy of their executioners.
The number of victims to this day is estimated to be 8372.)

It is begun, we are become the vengeance.
Awoken by a call to shed the blood of generations.

Invoke the cleansing, the dawn of a new mourning.
Bring forth the lasting scars, save your sentiment for the extinct.

Genocide, a human theme.
Redemption, a shallow dream?

Devastation gathers, drench this soil with tears.
Humanity at zero.

Remorse, shattered.
The conscience wronged.
Let the risen speak for the fallen.

We dig compassion's grave, eight thousand sorrows deep.

Invoke the cleansing, the dawn of a new mourning.
Bring forth the lasting scars, save your sentiment for the extinct.

Genocide, a human theme.
Redemption, a shallow dream?

Evolution's bloodstained crown shall be ours to keep.
We dig compassion's grave, eight thousand sorrows deep.

Devastation gathers, drench this soil with tears.
Humanity at zero.
