Caged in and delivered to my fate
I have descended
Torn out and diminished to a trace
Of a man

Helplessly obey the invasive patrol
Filled with mental anguish countless hours of agony ahead

The whispers hiss to me like trees
Enticing me to play

Black as pure as it stands
Deeper than the endless chasm
Submissive beauty calloused by the wind
A constant circle downward

Time offers no refunds for countless petty deeds
Stripped of all necessities, collapsing

The whispers hiss to me as ghouls
Enticing me to fall

Born of the sludge now walk among the hated
Gone is the chance to truly rise
Assault my dreams a visor of blood
Dread exposed and now marked

Submissive beauty no bottom in my sight
Sore from the (ancient) spells of paranoia
I wander further into narcoleptic dreams
Into this bloody crypt where darkness never sleeps

The wormwood medication held as tight as it could
Before the voices crept like Judas and took hold of my mind
A throne of retribution crumbles down under my feet
Hung up in (the) heavens where my hope could not survive

So much value has been lost, a stain in time until the end finds me
Or alas, I find it...

I wander deeper into myself until the end finds me
Or alas I find it...
Deeper than the endless chasm
I've been dethroned


from An Apparition In Nocturnal Splendor, released April 24, 2013
