A Life Once Lost

The Fourth Plague: Flies - EP tracks

Lyrics

1. Chileab

Tell me what you wish to do?
You know that your wish most likely will not come true
Not to worry because your life has been one big disappointment anyway
Thinking that if I fall asleep to her breathing
It is not despair, it is certainly that I have suffered enough and that I am sacrificing myself for her
Tell me what you wish to do, Chileab




2. Our Second Home

He knew that she would leave the light on for him
Suppose that it was possible that she forgot this night
Only the crescent moon dragged its way across the dirt path he walked on
And as he closed his eyes, his mind began to drift away
This time was the only time he was able to cover her mouth as he ripped apart her chest with his nails
Her screams soaked his hand with with spit and blood
As she fell to the floor, he walked away with joy




3. The Dead Sea

And the olive trees, for the locust devoured them as well
You will not let me die
Why not
The trees and fields have been picked dry yet you keep me here for what
To sit at your side. Let me die young and empty of days
Bury my bones under the bare olive tree
Let my name rest on the tip of your tounge
As the night captured our still voices
The contrast of the sky locks our eyes one last time




4. Prepare Yourself For What Is About To Come

Let me rip the throat of your still warm body
Cover my eyes with the blood of lying fool
A person you sought after innocence in my arms
A person you took advantage of
For I am the fool
I am the fool you walked past threw these lies
I am the man that shall be punished
Let it be known that we create a desire and that we are the only creatures that can




5. The Tide

As the sun died in the background of the autumn trees, the cries ceased
The wind blew across the cold and blistered ground
Her vivid leaves danced in the air only inches above the ground they slept upon
The wind began to grow robbing the branches of the willow tree
With this the cries ceased
One by one the leaves fell upon the cold ground as the wind gathered itself once again
