Beloved fraternity to an end

Stilted for the beholder
Handcarved death in stoneladen aisles
I hide the scars from my past
This is when it all falls apart

Undisguised manmade nova
Searing beams tracking you down
Adoring what never has been

The gleam of her eyes

On this imminent day
To what´s gone astray
What would they care if I did stay
What would they care if I did stay

That rigid, twisted face
Lost virtue, frantic lust
Searching my way to perplexion
Bearing her pain in the wilderness
In that moment she knew
