A Breath Before Surfacing

(no lyrics available)


Staring in disbelief of how much I love you
And how much you love gnawing on my fingers
This thread never seems to end
Our dying wish, to slay these demons and dine on their flesh
Decades of angst concealed
Bred into society's dregs
Behind a wall of fire they reside
Awaiting the fateful day on which we create our final resolution
In a web of deceit, the serpentine savior of all
I have seen so many fall into this black hole that consumes your every action
To hide in a cave
The hollow comfort of the flame
Now be witness to the battle that ensues
A war has been declared
Which side will you choose?
After all is said and done
We did our best but they won
Well they've never mattered anyway


Someone in this room cannot be trusted
Somebody turn on the lights
We've all been privy to a chain of events tonight
That will determine our very futures
It will determine our lives
I'm going to get to the bottom of this
Deadbolt the door, no one in or outside
I arrived just before midnight
Soaking I hurried through the door
To find inside what my eyes could not believe
Our hostess face down on the floor
Now I don't know who I can trust
There is no one
In misery I will solve this mystery
And if I never rest again, it shall be done
With such a host of characters
One of them is bound to make a tragic mistake
Forcing them to light
Illuminates the culprit
The goddess of the moon has provided us the setting
In which our story takes place
Their leering eyes burn like coals in my path
But I cannot be compromised
The blood has started to pool in my hands
Manifesting the weight on my conscience
I must confess
She is far more than our hostess
In fact, she's the love of my life
And though there are knives in my eyes
I'm still wide awake
Questions fired like bullets in an attempt to seed
Those who are truly innocent from the guilty
A ceiling fan is the only thing in sight
With each rotation a shadow cutting through the light
With my head in my hands a depravation of sound
I can see clearly now that only darkness surrounds
They all played a part in her death
I will go on til I have nothing left
Forever bound to this oath
To avenge her ghost


She is pious in every way
When learned her passions
“Forbidden” they will say
Her morbid lust consumes her every thought
You seductress of the dead
The end is the beginning of this beast
As she's pulling back the sheet, she's a macabre masterpiece
And for the first time she opens up
A skeleton removed
Out of her closet, into her bed
She'll never love me, she'll never love me til I'm dead
And so I take this final breath
The noose grips tight around my neck
I'm slowly moving towards the light
To her I offer my life
So that she may dance on my grave
Her ritual resounds
As I'm going, she is cumming
Our simultaneous release lets our love ring true
She's made the preparations, a silence preserved
In this I can truly feel her angst
Tired of being alone, accustomed to hurt
Witness her greatest deceit
An empty casket in the dirt
Those eyes now haunt my afterlife
Twisted it pains my bones to no end
Our time together not in vain
This love oblique we extend death
Mortality is but a bar on that which makes us who we are
I lie in wait for your return a pale blue tint to my face
So many secrets within this house
Forever clouded in incense
Now I dream of explosions in black
Fade out as we wither away
Her crooked smile stained with sin
A veil of black shrouding her face
Embalming fluid fills her room
To ensure I'll never be replaced J
