An incalculable fall through the billowing black smoke For when the shallow breath sets in and free fall takes hold you will see the damned and its malice as you descend and sprawl Resounding their whimpers “Embrace our vast domain” said the doll I’m a path of ashen coal Beneath burnt restless feet Leading dark footed sole, seeker Till this virgin soil goes bleak Your stride gives distance Bartered for deals none need When ill intent is always assume Cries! From the depths of demise but I knew it in their eyes Of Their intent ascent that I’d compromised In endless joyless fervor A Cathedral warded horror As Their grip tightened from order This precursor of life As sick as we are I’ll smile until the end I begged to Amend again again again! For the ravaged bequeathed With their spoils underneath As I sought to slaughter the wretched With-In-Tension for release And Like a child intent to please I can feel it dawning closer But the canvas is now black The Internal gates are now unleashed To feel this cruel heart’s beating wrath, enslaved. A swath lay bathed With-In-Tension, likened from their craft “Here we are laden against untimely measures, While Seeking treasures of unrequited splendours For it is what held him together Oh, what sickening lies ahead” How to live in the new age of decadence When there is only war I’m a path of ashen coal Beneath burnt endless heat Fleeting, dark hooded soul seeker Till this virgin soil goes bleak It’s stride gives distance Bartered lives as they all plead When ill intent was always destined to prevail The relinquishment of ungodly grace To face the flesh and nothing more War wayward within to face the flesh and nothing… Will you wander unwaking worldscapes with me deep We’ll traverse the ancient torment’s keep forever The Hungers of Evil Prevail Pre orations to manage fleeting expectations Lunging with the fury of a burdened tyrant Unanticipated waves that barrel towards me Off the shores of consciousness The battle for the worst of us has begun And with these hands I will escape Your ascending lands As we soon awake Leaping without meaning Glimpse to watch my torment feeding Truly dreadful In its elegance Or am I suddenly and restlessly Seeking that inner peace? Will I await the quieting of the streams Surely I’ll never know... With Rage to Assuage The Numbing The Doll And It’s Irreverent Eyes Seeing into the endless nothing And like a mask with that future’s pain Unlike that shattered past is now, then Where In life implies Holds all confusion We strive in disillusion Welcomed by deceptive blue skies Solo: Ben Wilkinson Was it the symbols and factions that grew your attraction Worth being so divisive, for Even effortless favors are steep in prices Repaid now or tomorrow’s vices Suffices in doubtless overdue sacrifices And I, alone must pay And Where my demons dwell I shall follow I Hurled headlong from ghastly crimes Within my mind to bottomless perdition An Endless distraction from Reflecting on my abreaction Traverse the mist Of a dreamlike memory Make true what they'll construe As my blade seeks Retreat from your inner truth Cause It’s been heaven knowing you Knowing you, knowing you... I lunged forward with a striking blow, Knowing full well I’d risk my own For an equal chance at survival But was it to console that creeping guilt? It Echoes from below “May we never know, May we never know.” Lunging with the fury of a burdened tyrant Unanticipated waves that barrel towards me Off the shores of unconsciousness The battle for the worst of us has begun (has been won) Ah! The Anger that Blinds! “As above our resolve awaits In endless joyless fervor Released what spirit has torn Merely flesh and nothing more” “Back into the endless chasm, back to grace your ailing god” Ages scent begged for repent Scarred apart from pathways bent and yearning for our rot To Purge of my own ignorance but not beyond our goal The End
