1. Where Light Divides The Holler

Floating around the bend

Where light divides the holler
Body is merged between moss and stone
Where blood finds color
She dissolves in the bank and I’m left alone

Writhing in the clay
(the water rises and sways)
Betray the human shape
(the water takes you away)

Final embrace

Tangled in the vine
Held to the floor of the earth
My vision restored
From the fog you emerge

Carried by standing water
We collide with shoulder and steel
Sundered from your spirit lays your body
The sense of touch reminds me that its real

And from within you I hear a whimper
A voice echos in an empty form
Inside my head you say I told you so
We should’ve left before the storm

A tear in the fabric of life

“We have each other and thats all we’ll ever need”

I crawl out of the river
Shaking hands with blood under my nails
I am reborn in a life without you

2. God Knows

Flashes of blood and bone
An empty vessel in between its home
You wrap around my feet
Pooling like wet cement, I sink

Clawing to get away
But every branch I hold onto breaks
Where do I go from here?
Panic sets in and I start to shake

Loathing
Crushed by the weight of the terror

All life reduced to stone
A beam of light pulls you above the ground
Out of the water through the parted clouds
All life reduced to stone

I am withering at the helm
Suffocating, and overwhelmed
I hand you to god
Carve your name
Everything burns
Nothing remains

We are gathered here today
Under the pressure of a weary gaze
Hydrate the garden
Decorate the grave

Lowered beneath the dirt

The trumpet tolls for the blood I harvest

Flashes of blood and bone
An empty vessel in between its home
God knows I belong to hell
Thats why he left me here by myself

GOD KNOWS

3. Forced To Stay

Bound to the trunk of a tree stretched out for miles
Casting a shadow on all I know of life

I can’t seem to shake the thought
The light is taken by the hearse
Its a lesson never learned
Everyday is getting worse

I dissolve into the pain
Pour myself into the guilt
Hanging over me like skies of rain
All the blood that I have spilt

Carried you to heavens gate
I am forced to stay

A celebration
The finale of life
The marriage between
Soil and bride

The blood denies the rose
To carry only memories of loss
A vigil on the side of the road
Her body now belongs to the cross
I am judged and set on fire
At the stand falling deaf to their cries
The bleating of a hundred voices
In unison asking me why

Why did I take a chance and gamble life?
Every sign points me back to the dorm
In my head you say I told you so
We should’ve left before the storm

The rain washes you away
Forced to stay

4. Contorted in the Faille

Abandoned by light
Swaying beneath the veil
Beyond the doubt of remission
Contorted in the faille

Whispering sweet nothings
Beneath a daze, mind consumed
Pulling me, your infectious hum
Asleep at the foot of your tomb

Dust settles on a broken frame
Inside our house I haven’t touched a thing
Focused on corners where lights now fade
Watching shadows float on broken wings

Sirens pull me to you
Ringing through my ears
Months have passed but the winter stays
Cold embraced by fear

Poison trails down my throat like gasoline
Plants deep into my blood like roots
Sets fire to my memory
Burns all
Left destitute
I rot

Figures dancing in the blur

Seeing doubles I focus in
Feel the warm embrace of skin
Twist tongues, feel you in my throat
Collapse in the bed held by your ghost

Caged by the thought of devotion
Solidified by the touch of death
In the dawn I hear you crooning
Could this all be in my head?

Whispering sweet nothings
Beneath a daze, mind consumed
Pulling me, your infectious hum
Awaken at the foot of your tomb

Now all that is left
Is to remove the weight of the earth
Now all that is left
Is to remove the dirt that holds your ghost

I am with you now

5. Return to Passion

From underground I hear you calling
Clawing through the dirt return to life
I can save you
Guided by the moon unto the grave

DIG
DIG

Everything will be okay
Force fed rebirth

Nurse
Your
Gored
Wings
Back
To
Life

Death comes home
Light the candles just to mask the scent
Death comes home
Love resurrects

Back inside I find myself again
The great return to passion

Back inside you
I lose myself

Hide you in my walls
Rotting

6. Permanent

Suffering in this life without you
Permanent Blue
Parted by death, reunited the same
Permanent Blue

The final thread in the loom
If not to love then to show
A mountain that towers over creation
Without a sun there is no room to grow

Unfulfilled

In the presence of your figure
Your voice still echos from from far away
The wind blows a familiar thrum
Faced with one more choice to make

Shepherd me
Through walls of stone
The wooded valley that you call home

Shepherd me
Teach me the blade
The only way our love is saved

Can’t last another day without you
Exercising every measure left
A spot for two in the womb of hell
An apology, my final breath

Suffering in this life without you
Permanent Blue
Parted by death, reunited the same
Permanent Blue

Closure in a physical form
Reject the hand of the devout
When I saw the ghost was you
All the lights went out
