about

Modern romance, like Greek tragedy, celebrates the mystery of dismemberment, which is life in time. The happy ending is justly scorned as a misrepresentation; for the world, as we know it, as we have seen it, yields but one ending; death, disintegration, dismemberment, and the crucifixion of our heart with the passing of the forms that we have loved.
- Joseph Campbell

lyrics

You took your leave suddenly
and it has broken me
try to navigate through the nights
but they're so lonely

Call to you in the haze of a fever dream
the how and why of what's become
they aren't what they seem

I'm just a ghost of myself and you the mist I breathe
Empty echoes from the years that were supposed to be
I quell the rage that poisons me from the inside
Colors falsify the world is just a fragile lie

Take away the part of me that found a safe place
Death stole in and I can't spit out the bitter taste
Wait for me across the stars where twisted fates toil
Bide my time, suffer the flames
Give up my blood for soil
