about

An aural incantation of revenge towards the poisoned individuals that have fed on the pure.

lyrics

Pale and shaking
Eyes rolled into head
Bright stream of energy
Flows from the solar plexus
Who hath receive
From the starscape of the dream
The life-force of the eternal child?
What god hath permit
Upon our sovereign ground
Such sightless & relentless
Molestation of our chosen shell?

You – Black hole in human form
You – Offspring of lust & scorn
All slumbers marred by your twisted face
Falling into a hatred I can’t escape
Twilight reverence slaked by trances of vigilance

Your prize – your art – your purpose

Now – Black hole in human form
Feeds on once sacred psychic storms
And compassion is this pile of ash laying next to me

Strength or weakness? Which gestated you?
This oneiric lapse seems bade to discern
It shows the portal to your origin

Hurling down the wormhole
The walls bright and green
I approach a child’s silhouette
The soul bright and green
The greatest pain is hers
The child you could have been
Begging to be freed by my hand

The catharsis is mine to take

Such a strange & noble fate
Born to consume
Tear the fabric of causality
Drive a good man to kill
The glory is shared
