A premonition
A definition…

Life tearing away
From patchwork and muted gray
Stolen back, and given meaning…
A turn out of season…

A final escape
Past the confines of reason
A madness that refreshes
And brings in its wake
A new wilderness

An unmapped truth
And a summer of possibilities
Pain, and her abilities
To find fire in stone
To find fire in stone…

One together a multitude
But always all together
In being alone
And one together a multitude
But we’re all together
We’re all alone…

This solitude this stance against sky
Where the small storms pass
Where these gods come to die
And return to sky
To freedom and void

Where nothing is fallen
Enveloped or destroyed
Where nothing is fallen
And nothing is destroyed
And nothing is destroyed

And waking new Adam
From this dust and this clay
And burning the flesh
Until the spirit gives way
Until the spirit gives way

This rune carved in skin
Yet deeper within
This rune carved in skin
Yet deeper…

And hard through the night
The rain and its flight
Driven like tears
Like tears to the ground
Driven Like tears to the ground

And waiting in darkness
The spirits that haunt us
And waiting in darkness
They flocked madly around
They flocked madly around

Time arose from his throne
The passage behind had opened
Eternity embraced her home
And the features of his face
Reached out,
Then disappeared
A leering specter
Once false substance and menace
Now enveloped in distance
Reeling as he passed
Into the ground of dead ideals
Relinquishing the lines
The boxes and crimes
That hold life to definition
This limit and prison
That hold life to definition
Your limit is your prison

Void, night now smiled
The hunt will demand darkness
Stark, shadow and fear
The deepest black falls
When the light crawls near

This rune is carved in skin,
Yet deeper within
