Preordained arrival
lifted from the soil
A path is etched into the clay

The air is thick
it can shield you from
the hanging outstretched arms

Dig deep
Eyes back

Red haze
Blood black

Side by side
standing hand in hand
Mirrored, anamorphic
they line the way

Mountain of black stones
Calling out
Remove yourself
Be still and breathe it in

Dig deep
Eyes back

Red haze
Blood black


Open up
Swallow yourself

Turn the sky
upside down
Pull the ground
to the clouds

Day to night
Insides are outside

Brought to life
by the suffering sky

Clay begins to melt and pool
and soon it will envelop you
Wading through a thickening sea
a color wheel kaleidoscope


Extracted from the earth
Wrapped in gauze
No one can see me now

Take control
Remove myself
Be still and breathe it in

Release your fears
Separate from the world you made

The outstretched arms
free of scars
if you let it go

I want to break
This endless chain

The writhing end
of the suffering sky
