incendere lyrics – man-eating tree

a strange generation-now at watch
by the rain of fire
decommissioned-from the drag of days
from mirth to grave

like seed you would cast the hope i always
wanted to know;
to reach inside for its heart-to bring it
back in these hands

i prayed and kneeled by the image
made of silver, light and time
i lit and burned my incense
but the altar was so wrong
to this day i cannot live with those
ricochets from silence
