lyrics

Unspoken words
Burn like winter fires
Deep in my
Hollow chest
A dark concealment clings
To my stone dead walls of shame
It coils my body
Stripping my spirit away

Everlasting pain
The burden is too much to bear
The bellowing Earth
Roars around me
Drown my senses
In the stream that carries me
Waters, black as pitch:
How can one dread your gleam?
Yet yearn to be cradled
In your eternal arms

He who dwells
Betwixt the sills
The cold wind blows
It calls and crows
Of oil adorned
And torch upturned
The vast old void
Approaches thee
May comfort guide
The departing

This grueling trial never ends
I pound my ravaged head
Against a column of failure
Wreathed in ivy
I bind my suffering
What remains of my will
Smolders before Elysian dawn
The tethers give way
I commence celebration
Take me now

He who dwells
Betwixt the sills
The cold wind blows
It calls and crows
Of oil adorned
And torch upturned
The vast old void
Approaches thee
May comfort guide
The departing

The cold wind beats upon my ears
and subdues my face
Our distance pushes on
The upturned torch signals my life to death
I drink from the humble cup
To finally escape the
Liminals of profound loss
