Communion

I staked a claim to nowhere
I watched you crawl right in
Living within your altered state
I saw the stars burn out through your eyes

Beyond the veil
You've gone beyond your years 
With the hate, the fear that you feel
Beyond the veil
You've reached beyond your means
To fix a broken man
You're broken
So now we are one

Listen as the dead before you speak
Hear their cries as you approach the edge

Fires burning without light
Engulfing you in darkened flames
Laughter felt but is not heard
As your flesh burns into the wind

Nothing breeds contempt
Like thoughts escaped in distress
1000 years without the stare of the sun
Hasten our return to the dust
To the dust

Hollow illusions
To carry the withered 
You will have to stare below
Stare below, beyond your sight
I can see the nothing come to surface
Now the sun and earth can sink alone

Beyond the veil
You've gone beyond your years 
With the hate, the fear that you feel
Beyond the veil
You've reached beyond your means
To fix a broken man
You're broken
So now we are one

Listen as the dead before you speak
Hear their cries as you approach the edge
Can't crawl back to the earth
Can't hide amongst the rotting days
The time has been rescinded, residuals destroyed
Gone, erased, forever amongst the ether
Where the light will not tread

Aimless, drifting, anti-cosmic sufferance
Beholden, grayed, the impossible release
To withdraw, condemned, made to fade away
Where the light will not dare to tread
To tread

Can't crawl back to the earth
Holy ground is shattered, the ancients have arrived
Gone, erased, forever amongst the ether
Penultimate, stress becomes stone, and then we fall
We fall
