High anxious sea Where wolves grind their teeth If you’ve ever been haunted in daylight The conscience always wins Its got you by the pride Fear is not grace Remittance of your ways If you’ve ever been Hunted in plain sight I believe in salt in the open would I believe the burn becomes you I have always been Hunted in plain sight Send death to all your fur and fang All your fears will melt away
Hedge Rider 05:10
bare your soul burning hold your breath slowly a new veil the gift of second sight And riding light again and riding fire To hell and below and every soul might they eat of my timeline and every soul might devour and leave me in death, you may find find all of your meaning learn all you can find because nothing is forever.
If you’re looking for peaks but you’re living in valleys we’ve got something here for you If you’re longing for power but your drowning in sorrow we’ve got something here for you. we will place a crown upon your soul & only snakes will adorn you Let their venom sink inside you relinquish all control We know the shapes you love when your body confines you let everything you know be dead we live in your marrow Should you shiver, you shake we have got ways to warm you We are one now we live in your marrow You’ll be the prize we feed the most you’ll be certain that we adore you We will always take it slow Slow enough to consume you.
Attunement 03:45
I often think of you at night ripe to fetishize I’ll tremble in your wake I've only come to recognize you & learn your ways I’ll burn the viaducts behind you to clear your name I might sink my teeth in all the way I’ll be your new attunement I’ll light your way I see the tangled web before you suffocates I’ll burn the valley there below you to clear your way I might sink my teeth in all the way I’ll be your new attunement I’ll light your way Should you find your fire we’ll get lost inside might divine abandon ignite again
Culling captives into frame Crossing Lines that can’t be changed Calling flies by new names Owning Fools who chase your flame Either way forever stuck in your gaze your crimson eyes have sealed my fate & locked me away Loving To blur the lines of pain Loathing Where light presents escape
Ire and woe Things to fear things you should know And we will die alone may it be done at home Horror and Lo Beasts to fear Beasts that you love And we will die alone may it be done at home The void that remembers genuine and spent
I drown in things that waste my time a world affair designed to satisfy I can’t repair what’s been destroyed, pulverized we might look back but we cannot go there Your pull enters me you move me from far away I'm tired but I can’t sleep remove me from far away Nothing repairs My mourning eyes & endless tired We can look back but we can’t go there
Exit Anxiety 04:50
moon light ends The hereafter begins Slowly swinging punches in a dream Why won’t one connect? there’s no way to get out of here without some kind of death clutching every pearl I hold dear no breath left no disguise The art of knowing self-contained burn every tower burn every bridge This is a place that’s Meant to rust My hearts is a ghost town with no empty rooms built on silence and floating tombs
