Track Name: Descend
I followed on the deep and wild way
And came to a place for descending.
A devil here behind,
Amid this cruel and dismal swarm.
Show us the way to the mountain:
A place where no light shines,
All the cruel valleys,
Dry, sterile thunder,
Those content in the fire,
The sad bank of the Acheron.
Track Name: Rue
Absolve us,
dormant rite's ease.
Yearn, clime!
Only less love is never sure.
Apostase!
Use dark rifts, ebb your cool omnist
Lips' line in new soil
All unclothed, dreaming red.
Each year crawls out life less:
Insane numb sadness.
Track Name: Lapse
One moment alone overcame us
And I fell
And I fell
Broken by heavy thunder
Three seconds later I struggled for breath

Lost with a compass
In our empty room

Sitting by the fountain
Holes in the ice
Holes in the ice
In autumn the leaves falling
In death’s dream kingdom
Track Name: Here Lies
O mantle eternally tiring,
Heaping grief on grief,
Her sheltered, guarded heart.
Her teeth were accidental stars.

Naked and terrified.
A bestial, no human life.

Accursed, cold, and heavy,
The ashes of dead fire.
A finished work requires
No resurrection.

Naked and terrified,
A bestial, no human life.
We open the sky
To see if any linger.

I’ll gather the pieces,
Mend them, and wander
Through a sky of weighty decisions,
Drowned in its thin veneer.
