What is Amaranthine?
The appellation is rooted in the Greek words amarantos,
meaning "immortal" or "unfading,"
and anthos, meaning "flower."
The word amaranthine emerged as an adjective of the imaginary flower
and subsequently of anything possessing its undying quality.

Lyrics
The splendor of youth
Of undying truth
The poisonous pill, we consume
The promise of fate
We find out too late
Was only a lie, we create
You flew
On past the edge of the sky
Cuz you knew
That only the living can die
Amaranthine, you fly
The weight of your chains
The pull on your reins
It buckles and strains, till you break
But you found the key
Beneath the debris
To free and release, the weight
You flew
On past the edge of the sky
Cuz you knew
That only the living can die
Amaranthine, you fly
[Bridge]
You flew
On past the edge of the sky
Cuz you knew
That only the living can die
Amaranthine, you fly
