lyrics

The cure for my disease waits patiently
Closely guarded, her light breaks on me

My aim is true, and eyes are wary
The blessed fruit lies just beyond reach
Barred by fire and barb
My breath becomes a blaze

Breathe in her shadow, taste its unmaking wake
This dazzling dark hollows out my chest

Black fury spirals through this brittle architecture
Subdued, the fibers let go their tethered bonds

Breathe in her shadow, taste its unmaking wake
This dazzling dark hollows out my bones

Her absence, now woven into my skin
Has marked me an omen to all
She burns in their veins
And leaves me devoured

As I immerse in clouds of teeth
Her light, in blinding brilliance
Withdraws the air once left to me
