Our Place in the Dirt

The peace after the storm
Deathlike silence is golden
The pained eternal bliss
In white despondent haze

The cold, the grey
Reminder of the pain
That put me in this dirt
That drove me to negate
My being, my essence
Transgressed to the unknown
All semblance of a future
Gone as the crow has flown

I sabotaged myself
Threw reason to the wind
I set sail for a world of blood
But found a sinking ship

No more ache
Sought but not found

I tried to be the change
The damaged couldn’t be
I fought to slay a monster
But the real beast was me

No more ache
Sought but not found
No more mistakes
My place in the dead ground

Heaving earth
Untold depths I’ve fallen
Morose and born a waste
I’ll cling to the shadows

Bastard times
Paradise is hollow
Moonlight illuminates
The funeral fog where we lay

A wretched world
We leave behind
A ghost of heart
A shell of life
The cost of plight
The price too great
To quell an earth
Built from all hate
The bones we bury
The dust we hide
The hurt we repress
To show a smile
To our captors
Go all the spoils
And we all rot
In piss and soil

The cold, the grey
Reminder of the pain
That put me in this dirt
That drove me to negate
My being, my essence
Transgressed to the unknown
All semblance of a future
Gone as the crow has flown

Gone as the crow has flown
