01. Neptunian

The waves will drift closer ashore to engulf
The brave and the fearful, the aged and the young
They carry all illusions of beautitude and joy
Slithering through the dirt, from the wellspring into the tomb

They carry the sounds of weeping and the stench of rot
Beneath crystalline streams dread looms, so cold
The freshness of the morning turns meaningless at sundown
Blue skies seem so much brighter from the bowels of this hole

Slender and beautiful, your body corrodes
One gentle breeze and your limbs are gone
Out of your veins flow water and ash
The moon is grinning, "You'll soon reach the stars in Neptunian depths"

Embraced by roots, caressed by leeches, filled with pearls
Sleep, wonderful, in Neptunian depths


02. Garlands

Garlands evergreen
Forget-me-not wreaths
Chaplets see me drugged
I could die in a rosary
Die in a rosary
Well, with these brave garlands
They never find out for her
They never find I'm lying
Well, with these etchings
Cravings convince
My cravings commence
Garlands evergreen
Forget-me-not wreaths
Chaplets see me drugged
I could die in a rosary
Die in a rosary
Well, with these scarve's scars
Cravings convince
My cravings commence
Well, with these splint's scars
I'm all that to you
I'm all that's who
Garlands evergreen
Forget-me-not wreaths
Chaplets see me drugged
I could die in a rosary
Die in a rosary
Well, with these scarve's scars
Cravings convince
My cravings commence
Well, with these splint's scars
I'm all that to you
I'm all that's who


04. Catalepsy

Gravity-defying state
Suspended, in trance, downwards
The quiet below overwhelms
The obscurity abvove overwhelms

Benumb beyond belief
Entranced into relief
In estatic lethargy
Blissful deceit

Pendular motion, a glimpse of light
Lost admidst the vast and livid sky
There was rust in the needle
There is rust in the hooks

Render, surrender
Naked and aghast
Behold your soul drifting away
Rendered, surrendered
Naked and aghast
Watching your essence rotting away


05. Aura

Sanctum, sanctorum

It is late and the grey is closing in
Outside, and the scent is creeping in
Silently, flowing
Awash, awaiting, breathing

Boundless beauty unveils
Beneath an ageless wisdom
Beneath her decaying skin
Perfection revealed, untouched

Awash, awaiting, breathing

Touch gentle as air
Limbs naked and frail
Opened to you, an altar
Endless, timeless

Let us shut the doors and turn down the blinds
In praise of blindness
And dance under neon lights
In tribute of agelessness

We will bring her back together

The world is taking so long to die
"Le demon aussi etái un ange avant"
(the Devil himself was once an angel)
