Lurking in the core of us all
Brief encounters, bleeding pain
Lepers coiled ‘neath the trees
Perversions bloom round the bend
Ghost of friends frolic under the waning moon
It is the year of death
Stealth sovereign reaper

Burning crop of disease
An advocate documenting the loss
This doesn't concern me yet
Taunting their bereavement
Mob round the dead
Probing vomits for more

Catching the flakes of dismay
Regular pulse midst pandemonium
Parched with thirst for the wicked
Sick liaisons raised this monumental mark
