The burden of years,
the sapping, the leaching
Taking in what’s most coveted
By others alike, a transient
The life in smoke

Into the skies, like birds of prey,
the liquid moves through the shadows
She pecks at the flesh of the mind.
Feeding, feasting, draining, all at the same time

The curse of time, in more of darkness than you’ve ever known
Repay those debts, as it was written

Give back to the darkness,
That has been so kind,
Repay your debt to the dark smoke
To it, a victim to come.
Endless bodies and lives to come.

The mind, like a serpent unwinding
Rotting away to emptiness
A poison that cannot by siphoned away
Toxic visions corrupt what lies inside.
seeking to survive, survive.

It’s not a sickness you know, it’s curse, a shadow inside
It’s not a sickness you’ll ever know, breeding death to stay alive.
