My images have you given over to the dead, turn back!
My images have you seen with the dead, turn back!
My images have you thrown to the side of the dead, turn back!
My images have you thrown to the ground of the dead, turn back!
My images have you buried in the coffin with the dead, turn back!
My images have you given over to the destruction, turn back!
My images have you enclosed with walls, turn back!
My images have you struck down on doorsteps, turn back!
My images have you locked into the gate of wall, turn back!
My images have you given over to the God of Fire, turn back!
