Spiraling 04:17
BESTOW ON ME YOUR ETHEREAL LIGHT LET IT FILL THIS SINGULARITY JUST A FAINT GLIMMER OF HOPE ON EVENT HORIZON LIKE A NEW BLOSSOM EMERGES THROUGH CEMENT SIDEWALKS ECHOES THE RESILIENCE OF SPIRIT YOUR BENEVOLENCE KEEPS ME HERE WITH WARM BREATH RESONATING BUOYANCY IN SPIRALING CHASMS
2.
Sharp Teeth 03:00
DRIVING FORWARD LOOKING BACKWARD SHE FINDS THERE IS ONLY LOOSE BONDS BETWEEN TIME AND PAIN SOME THINGS DON’T PASS INSIDE THEY’LL LAST THE MEMORIES WON’T HEAL THEY MERELY FORM A PLACE IN OUR GUTS AND IN OUR BONES TOSSING AND TURNING BETWEEN OUR KNUCKLES AND OUR RIBS WAITING TO WAKE AS THE SHADOW GROWS LONG
3.
WHEN THE EARTH DIES AND THE DEAD RISE I THOUGHT THAT WE WOULD RIDE INTO THE SUN TOGETHER TO BURN IN THE FLAMES FOREVER
4.
The Beast 05:15
SHADOW CREEPS FORBODING DESPAIR SCORCHING THROES PAROXYSMIC RETURN THE BEAST IS BACK NERVE PAIN PULSING PRESSURE INCREASED AND HOPE ERASED CRANIAL BLOOD BOILS AGAIN IN TURMOIL PACING ROCKING HEAD CLENCHED IN MY HANDS PULLING OUT MY HAIR THE BEAST IS BACK RIGHT SIDE OF MY FACE IS A DROOPING LANDSLIDE UNDERCUT BY SPASMING VESSELS ERODING ME SEARING FIRE POKER BORES ITS WAY THROUGH MY FACE WAVES OF PAIN AGAINST ME I PACE I CRY I BREATHE
5.
Illumine 03:46
I WILL BE IF YOU ARE AND I WILL NEVER FEAR THIS AND ALWAYS LOVE YOU
6.
DEAD LEAVES LEFT THESE VOID TREES TO FRAME THE LANDSCAPE AS BARE PHALANGES OUTSTRETCHED ACROSS THE HORIZON THERE’S A GRIM LIT FOCUS SURROUNDED BY STARK SHADOWS VULTURES DRIFT ABOVE US AND WAIT TO PICK FLESH FROM BONE HEAD NORTH ON THE WAY PAST THAT GREAT STRETCH OF THANK YOU MAMAS VEER RIGHT PAST THE RIGHTEOUS WEEPING WILLOW I’M FINALLY HERE NOW ETERNALLY WITH YOU LEFT CHASING YOU THROUGH THE SWAMPS OF THIS HELL ON PARADISE HILL
7.
The Sea 02:07
YOUR SET OF SENSES PERCEIVE THE SEA OF ENERGY FROM A CERTAIN STANDPOINT TO CREATE THE WORLD YOU SEE IT’S NOT COMPLETE OR ACCURATE INTERPRETATIONS AS WE DRIFT YOUR THOUGHTS ARE LINKED TO AND THEY DETERMINE THE END FORMATION OF THIS ENERGY THEY SHIFT, BUILD, SHAPE AND MOLD THE UNIVERSE CREATE, DICTATE, GESTATE YOUR INTIMATE EARTH THE WORLD IS YOUR MIRROR IT EXISTS FROM WHAT YOU HOLD AS YOUR TRUTH THE WORLD IS YOUR MIRROR IT EXISTS AS IS UNTIL YOU CHANGE IT
8.
Eidolon 08:22
RISE FROM MY BLOOD AND COME HOME DON’T LINGER IN THE FIELD WHERE VIOLET FLOWERS GROW IN THE BLUR OUT OF REACH SUN BURNS THROUGH DOORWAYS THAT I CAN’T BREACH SINK INTO DEPTHS AURAS ARE SEEN WHERE WILL MEETS ITS END THE LIGHT HAS PASSED SIX BELLS THE STAR IS DEAD SWIMMING WITH THE DOGS THAT GNAW THROUGH MY BONES BATTERED BY WAVES AGAINST ERODING SHORES ELECTRIC SPIRALS THE CITY CRUMBLES ASCEND NAKED, UNVANQUISHED THE ARCHITECT OF THIS WRECKAGE WRETCHED WOE ENDLESS DEPTHS SLOW ROARS THE CURRENT OPPRESSIVE SONG OF MY EIDOLON A VOYEUR LIGHTS A TORCH A THOUSAND MILES FROM THE PYRE WE RIDE THE SPARK WITH HOPE FOR FLAME TO WARM THE SEAS THAT CAUSE YOU PAIN DON’T FEAR THE DARK AS SONG REMAINS TO SEARCH FOR HEARTS THAT BEAT THE SAME
