lyrics

I hear you all around me
Every thought and passing vibe
In this great tangle... of civilization
Corporeal and spirit
Virtue and vice
Rats scuttle from shadows
My magnetic field closes in
Above the primal chorus of
I'm hungry!
Don't eat me!
One thought rises
From the din

Grasp the unknown
Make the world your own
Find the key, unlock the beast
Before we turn to bone

Something inside me broke
Pieces crashed everywhere
Exposed humiliation… ill will and despair
Left without protection
Too much to bear
All I have left is fear and desire
Dutiful sentinel armed to the teeth
I'll scream in the wind
With a heart
Full of passion
I'll martyr my metaverse
And spare you the grief

I'm all alone
We're all of us alone
Find the key, unlock the beast
Before we turn to bone

Every day spent marching through
A worship of whores
winding their spindle… of infinite time
Buzzing and pricking
The human beehive
Some want to die in armor
Some sail the seas of gloom
I'll grit my teeth
Divina virago
Victoriously
Pulled diametrically
Between the sun and moon

Grasp the unknown
Make the world your own
Find the key, unlock the beast
Before we turn to bone
