about

Track #2 off of Mythos: Logos, out Friday, May 6th!

lyrics

Alone in this world, my spirit will die
I seek solace among the pines
Their richness of life will nurse my wounds
without their guidance, we sleep in tombs
I follow a path not meant for me
But I choose death
Over shallowness for eternity

Though my blood in these rivers runs deep
The bones of my ancestors lie across the sea
I curse the name of my father’s house
As his kin bring wrath to the land I breathe
Their thieving hearts have spoiled the roots
That I have grown into these mountains
That pierce my heart with the sky

The clouds light the brush
Beneath my weary feet
I trudge forever forward
In the darkness and sleet
This is all I’ll ever know, my home
The black night, white sky

Mother night, father sky,
Winter, who brings the end of light
I give you my soul to bury in your marrow
In the black of night, the snowing white sky

I endure the endless night
The long dark tortures my soul
The icy surface numbs me
And comforts, it is all I know
The terror of the darkened wood
Left for dead, at night alone
The snow falls, and I live forever
In the black night, white sky
