I walk on an ocean of blades,
strangled by all the shades of fear.
Long since I wear my flesh on this road.
But now it's too late to escape.
A curse.
A kiss.
A kiss on a dagger.
The one that let me control.
The one that let me be.
The one that will take me down.
Since the first light, the first breath,
I'm dying everyday a bit more.
In the pain I don't feel my chains.
Behind towers and ruins
crows and vultures are aping swans.
Trying to convince themselves of an impossible dignity.
I turn away to not remind them their true nature...
So neither mine.
A giant eye stares at me.
The sky is growing dark.
Its dead light pierces me, enslaves me, unsettles my perception.
I see new ways.
Thousand of nails pierces my thoughts.
Thousand of nails pierces my soul.
