lyrics

The fluid leached him
It filled his heart, his soul
Long lost sunken boat
Still searching inside me

The bold liquid
Searing through
Cleaning, evaporating
Jump into the brew

The leeching movements
Cleared up your thought
Long lost forgotten vessel
You have been taught and tainted

Some time ago, raised like my own one,
Sat on a dark edge, sang the song,
Of the dark liquid (that satisfied)
My own son, curled up and twisted,
It filled his lungs
It filled his tongue
It filled his lungs
It filled our hearts

Step the last step
Break your edge
Detach your teeth
Sing the old song
To each his own
You’ll never drown
In your light
Sudden rush of fright
Loose your new sight
Accept the void
Cherish the fraud
You will be
Born again
Into this skin
Don’t shed this new shame
Your scales aren’t there anymore
You’ll never sing the song
Of the one true leech

Stories howling beside
Stagnant thought inside
Melodies, searing pain
Words, barely sane

Hardened crust
On my blind eyes
Singing with disgust
Yelling with despise

Swimming in circles
The currents can’t decide
Enjoying the motions
I’ll just enjoy the ride

Down below, lying alone
Light depraved river flows
I still sing the song
Curled up and twisted
As it fills my lungs

Step the last step
Break your edge
Attach your new fins
Write the old song
To each his own
I’ll never drown
In your light
Sudden rush of might
Loose your blind sight
Accept the void
Cherish the fraud
I will be born again
Into your skinless fear
Deep and pointless
Don’t shed in vain
Hide what became
Hide me inside
Deep in your maze of vigorous
Warm and unsafe
Melodies of the only song that I can
Sing out loud and proud about myself
