lyrics

Breath on my back
Black marine stalemate swell
Stealing thunder
Hunt me
Your flame-driven words
Are the words
That consternation won

Open a rift
Lacerate novelty
Visceral moment
Ought to
Burn away the fragile remains
Of a ceaseless ritual

Dread and its ilk
Necessitate
A new reminder that
Coming undone
Is in nowadays
A centerpiece
A modern stage
They want a witch
To burn at the stake

Don't say the truth isn't viable now
How it suits you to say
Heaven is out to get us
Some golden light betrayed us
Sympathetic to the void

Waste at my heals
Dark sunset in the horizon
Honesty kills again
Curse the speech of snakes
Vapid tryst with thin air

Talk about tomorrows
On the grounds that it would last
We both knew so no one asked
Usurping memories
Before they turn bitter
And try to flee again

Do you want me to pretend?
Would it somehow hurt less?
So here's where we stand
All twisted by the complacency of the past

I feel another dark ritual beginning
I feel another dark ritual beginning
I'm holding onto something that's not worth saving
In my mind
Stealing all my time
