Lingering


You still live within me, you still haunt my dream...
You stir pain inside me, your name's my every scream...

... and I'd flee from your advances, every moment you draw near.
... and I'll see that 'we' can't ever, my very strength shall be this fear.

And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;

Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
