Rough demo

lyrics

Grey dawn rises
Above a skyline of fire.

These songs of mourning speak to me,
Their voices a gentle whisper.
I feel the breath against my ear.

Chorus:
In this desecrated tomb;
In the arms of a still warm corpse;
I feel the maggots writhe
Behind my eyes.

Into the dark
And its calming, full embrace.
I am but a man
Solitary for countless years.

Aeons I have spent
Gazing into the sky
Praying for an answer
To some forgotten question.

Chorus:
In this desecrated tomb;
In the arms of a still warm corpse;
I feel the maggots writhe
Behind my eyes.

The pen is the knife.
My blood on the page.
Taken to these heathen gods
An offering of flesh and blood
Kept apart from the rest
For these long, cold years.
