lyrics

(I figured there was no way out but to follow the vaporous breadcrumb trail left by these nightly excursions… I began to document them, building a pathway out of this existence, a shaky bridge into another world that might turn out to be more horrible and dissolute than the one I had come from - a terrible wasted place under the thrall of a cruel god, sure, but at least you couldn’t see its face or lose yourself completely - but I was willing to take the risk then as I am now to find something greater in all of this...)

Finding shards of light in an endless night.
Trading in your fears while trying to become light.

You were just a tool; a ladder up to god.
You were such a fool that you believed every word.

(CHAINS ARE LIFTED FROM AROUND YOUR SLEEPING HEAD AND YOUR SPIRIT RISES ABOVE YOUR BED. KEEP ON MOVING PAST THE CEILING AND THE STARS...)

...until you’ve wandered too far from your body.

(YOU’RE JUST A TOOL! YOU’RE JUST A LADDER UP TO HIM! BUT YOU’RE NOT A FOOL! YOUR HEART IS SACRED AND YOUR LOVE IS PURE!)

...but you’ve wandered from your body.

...too far from your body.
