Amenra vocalist Colin H. van Eeckhout comments:

“What you lose in the fire, you will find in the ashes”

“Voor Immer” (“For Ever”) was one of the first songs we have written for De Doorn. We played it for the very first time in 2018 on the city square of Dixmude, West Flanders Belgium. Accompanied by the carillon, its bells a typical instrument from Belgium and the low countries, we connected the earth with the sky. It was initially written for a commemoration ceremony of the ending of the first world war.

Images of widows and mothers bereft of their sons. Destroyed cities and whom was left to die. Finding strength and courage to rebuild what once was there, without what was theirs.

The last time we played it live was in Menen, West Flanders Belgium end 2019. That night we gathered and burnt all our unacknowledged loss. Revealing by fire the 20feet high bronze Amenra statue glowing red, a symbol of hope.

This is a song about finding that hope, the strength to carry on. Its content ever present in the world today.

“to fall and to rise

under merciless skies

light and grace

lines marring a mothers face

wounds inflicted by love

scarring our skin

here and above

our home. blemish on the land

cuts fading to the softest trace

outstretched. a beggars hand

one last poem

and letters unread

it ends here. and weighs us

down like lead

I stumble I fall

my eyes to the ground

one last sigh

a silent sound”
