Liquid is in your throat
For hopeless delight
After all you fell in love with death
Life has aborted
All you've had and all you became

The night is calling, you pray forth

A barren waste is your land
Crops they were sown to die

This skin is a mirror
The eyes hover with ignorance
Hell throb from your lips
Sucked in and safe from the world of sleep
