Tempest 04:41 video
dripping wet I awake to face this hell lash for lash, we beg forgiveness in a shallow grave filling in with all that we let die bloodstained hands in blind contempt as we watch the world go up in flames an uncaring race (let it crash) to the edge of bliss (let it die) off the precipice - over and over till there’s no longer when did we ever care (write your status, fall in) what’s my recovery in a world that’s past recovering? we suffer all (let it crash) to reach some end (let it die) like sisyphus - over and over till there’s no longer life (serenity dawns) life (as the fires grow) life (as the clouds bellow) life (as a heart still pines) (I can’t breathe with the weight of the end bearing down) all things must come to pass the birds, these waves, our plans and mistakes all things must come to pass these roots, old scars, light up like your eyes all things must come to pass your touch, this dream, lights up with the skies life as ephemera stars don’t shine they flicker in the night, merely a specter of what once was, what could have been even dead and gone, there’s beauty in the absence there’s beauty in the silence there’s beauty in you there’s beauty in me

abscession - this flesh rots hollow the earth spoils it sickly black transference and waiting rooms and all that still grows, a wallow the branch yearns for something else transcendence and exit wounds fed to the fates, the collow we live on (to suicide) just to bleed (the earth’s disease) we fight on (millions perish) we die this life drains fast like sandfall between our hands we touch in vain, our hearts won’t beat in time this dream dies fast like cancer between our bones we try in vain, our hearts won’t beat in time this will rots last the old roots which gave first life we kiss in vain, our hearts won’t beat this time torrid throttle, cast thy breath on plumes of ash borne of our indolence heedless cretin, sweat thy death in the ruins of our ancestral insolence we’re all disease destroy, destroyer curse against the tides writhe against the call inhume the final act, bring down the guillotines, let it turn to dust I turn over to rapture, I leave myself to rust, dissolve, abandon cicatrice by cicatrix, it goes on. (blight, a light) (the earth in life through death) (reborn! rejoice!)
