lyrics

Obscure reflections stare back at me
through the tainted water.
Neglected exposure;
I am the product of this distorted culture,
eclipsed by my antic disposition
I’m merely an illusionary shell fed to chimeras.

Fragmented constructs of a fluorescent realm
incept a twilight and destruct the elms.
A collective myopic gaze entrances us all
oh how i pity this despondent existence.

The lustrous phantom; Speaks of tongues obscured.
The pale lumiére; Speaks of eyes deluded.

My innocence was stolen by the birds who couldn’t see
singing sonnets as the earth stood and screamed
and at the end of it all
I was torn from soul
begging that one day,
I might be whole.
And at the end of it all,
I might be whole.

I set my heart ablaze and watched it flare nihility

But then the gateway appeared to me
and showed me the path,
that would reconstruct my life
that would purge this condition,
and understand my disdain,
this world is nothing more
than the quintessence of dust

Show me how to rid myself of the shadows that lurk inside of me

And at the start of it all,
I was torn from soul
begging that one day,
in time,
I might be whole…

Show me how to rid myself of the shadows that lurk inside of me.
