lyrics

GREAT TEETH OF PROTRACTING MENACE. OBSIDIAN BLACK, CORAL RED AND TURQUOISE GREEN. TRIUNE VISAGE OF ANGEL FEAR. THREE FACES, TWO WINGS AND AN ALMIGHTY WIND. WHIP UP FROM BEHIND THE BEHIND.

CARRY THE LIGHT OF CHRIST INTO THE DAMNED AND DARK. I SPEAK IN ANCIENT TONGUES AND SING THOSE HIDDEN MELODIES. CAN YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR, CAN YOU FEAR WHAT I FEAR? DO YOU TRACE YOUR FINGERTIPS INTO THE RIPPLES OF THE WATER, WAITING.

AND FEED ON THE BODY AS IT SINKS INTO SILT. TIME IS MOVING AND I AM STANDING STILL. NO BODY CAN HOLD ME. I AM NOT THIS SHELL. ALMIGHTY TERROR REIGN.

SOMEBODY COUNTS DOWN THE INFINITE DAYS. SLOW CARVING UP THE EARTH AND SPILL ITS OIL ONTO THE LAMPS OF PEACE. BURN BRIGHTLY AND INTO THE NIGHT TIME.

PAINTING FAINTEST LINE OF SMOKE INTO THE SKY. I PUSH BACK FROM THE EDGE AND INTO THE FARMER’S FIELD. WHERE I CROSS MY ARMS AND THEN I WAVE GOODBYE. I AM LIFTED SEVEN FEET ABOVE THE WET GROUND BY A SWARM OF LILAC BUTTERFLIES. THEY ARE SINGING SONGS OF LONELINESS AND SONGS OF THAT MOST SACRED HOPE.

I HEAR THE SECRET HARP. ITS STRINGS ARE TIGHT AND PERFECTLY PLUCKED. IT SINGS THAT SONG TO ME AND I FOLLOW IT INTO ETERNITY. I PULL THE EYES FROM EVERY SKULL AND PLACE THEM IN THE MOUTH AND COVER THE SOCKETS WITH A CLOTH OF RED AND BURN THE BODIES TO KEEP US SAFE. LET EVERYTHING THAT FEELS ME BREATHE TAKE PROPER NOTICE AND BEND YOUR KNEE.

I WAS ONCE A WICKED MAN, BUT I AM TRYING AGAIN, I WILL BE MADE HOLY. LET EVERY THING ON LAND AND SEA AND IN EVERY PLACE, ALL SPACE BETWEEN, IMAGINE IF YOU CAN THE WEIGHT OF HEAVEN: PLEASE COME TO US.

LIT BRIGHT FROM BEHIND AND A SHADOW OF WHITE. ROSE GOLD SKIN AND SHEET METAL HAIR HANGS OVER THE HOLY MOUTH HOLE. WITH A VOICE OF A PERFECT BELL, RINGS TRUTH AND TERROR AND TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY.
