lyrics

‪The day grows long, as long as you hang‬
All the air below threatens to crush you

From the unfolding of my seed, the earth was birthed
My roots water the soil, and my leaves a shelter
But you I'm growing new
Above all the earth and air and beast
Then the stars will marvel and
The demons all will hide their faces

And every tongue that speaks in whispers
Will be scorched with fire
And all who dare accuse you
I'll pull the air out from their lungs

My roots grow inside your flowering lungs
No one can snatch from within their grip

Soon your shell will break
And you will finally be unveiled
When again my roots
Have reached into the earth

Soon your fray will consummate
By fire, pure and winnowing

Everest's ancient stance has broken
And Sol has fallen to shadow
Could my hand be restrained so eas'ly,
That my grip would let you come loose?

Oh, exile, buried above the earth
Fear not the taunting--the jaws below
Or the constrictor, who will never find their end
Oh, don't you see that I will never let you fall?

All the earth breaks with your seed
And so it all will be reborn

As the crumbling mask gives way
And your seas are swallowed up
The years devoured will flourish
And Eater will take his portion
Among his deeds

Break through, into the glistening
Where we will cry, "where is your sting?"
