In the end the Gods damned a lesser to watch over all dying life, a lesser being never to engage with the condemned never to inspire or enlighten. Envy now drives the time. For time is eternal in this spirits eyes. Witnessing death but never knowing what is beyond this infinite prison, a shepherd of the fallen. Who will ascend from the ash and bone? Who will redeem this land? The light that once allowed all to bloom now reflects off the few and hopeless. Will the remaining take hold? Time is the enemy that always totals freedom.


Searching the realms for signs of the source
Imprints of lust following in
Where are the hours that echoed in my mind

Man of the Gods
That ransom the source
Sick with resentment
Bones break for the reach
Break for the reaching
Too crippled to stand
Years bathe over and over
Baptizing me within fields of salt
Wash over my eyes
Cries search in the dark
Hands buckle to shape

Wade in the oceans
The oceans they rise
A prayer lost in flight
I speak for my brothers
Though they shall not reflect

There is no time here
There is no source of the breach
Waves crash on gray harbors
Parade the dead to shores of gold

Tell me (why was I spared)
Explain this to me (why was I spared)
Deny me life

(You cannot comprehend what must come
The cycle, the re-occurrence
The collapse
This is our burden now
We compelled to play the teacher, the prophet
The prophet of gloom
Eclipse of life)
