stygian narcosis lyrics – esoteric

whispers of insanity bombard my rationale.
aeons p*ssed since i last did feel,
the joy of my tears,
streaming, in dissipation of sorrow.

the insidious beauty, so quiescent.
vehemence, stronger still,
…yet dying…

…as yet another gorge,
fails to bleed.
i rub salt into mine open wounds,
scars heal, but the flesh is then dead.
pain spills, from my mind into my body.

time expires,
and i see what has p*ssed.
overspent in mourning.
death came for me in years of past,
and left me to live in death.

life is given to us… obsolete…

as the dust flew, i smelt the ancient past.
from whence did i know what it is that i know?
or what it was that i knew?
time is the carrier of knowledge.
much can be recalled in time…
…but in a moment…?

knowledge becomes nothing,
when faced with the propensity of time.
once lost,’tis lost forever.
so much to know (each answer begets a greater question),
the importance of truth is so much greater,
and hidden amongst lies.

…i am all which mocks virtue…

release the shackles of the flesh,
what name must i bequeath (upon my kingdom)?

amidst the slumber, i awaken the dream…

portals of obscurity burst forth into my eyes,
as i plunge into the ascending chaos…

i journey on, the lights dripping their luminescence.
crossed dimensions imbibe me,
i see all, but can do nothing but see.

…i roam…

i am enraged.
inspired by my insanity.

these worlds, unknown.
i cry for this solitude.
is it mine fortune to have entered such visions?
canst i decipher the vision to words?

words cannot conceive.
i extol my journey through the vision of sound.

imbibe thine mind if thou durst see!
travel betwixt the demented seas!

…reflect the journey…
