lyrics

No more wine for me
I'm past delight
In the thick red
and the clear white

I'm thirsty for my own blood
As it moves
Through a field
Of action

Draw the keenest
Blade you have
And strike until
The head circles
Around the body

Make a mountain
of skulls like that
split me apart.

Echoes from the factory
Beckon me to despair

I follow listless apparitions
Down an ever winding stair

Peel back the corners
Pull the shadows from the wall

The empty vessels, they all flounder
Eyes blank under a pall

The empty causeways lead me nowhere
The old ghost drift around

Tremors rock the foundations
Paradigms fall to the ground

Vapor forms a tower
A vulgar landmark for us all

The empty vessels they all flounder
Eyes blank under a pall

Horror holds my hand
Leads me back to our origin

Doubt left to hang
On a neolithic gallows

Don't stop at the mouth
Don't listen to anything I say
I must enter the center of
The fire

Fire is my child
But I must be consumed
And become the fire

Why is there crackling
And smoke?
Because the fire and the flames
Are still talking
You are too dense go away
I have solid form

In the blackness
Those two friends argue
Like a wanderer with no face
Like the most powerful bird
In existence refusing to move

Fire in my eyes
Fades and dies
You know I wouldn't mind
Using you to kill my time

I wonder why you ever came here
Our bones piled so high
Snow and ice held me for so long
Take my toys and pull out your
Soul

What can I say
To someone so curled up
With wanting

So constricted
In his love

Break your pitcher
Against a rock
We don't need any longer
To haul pieces
Of the ocean around

We must drown away from
Heroism
And depictions of
Heroism.
