In the way of poison the leeches spread under his skin
Its now too late for vaccine, the defense has failed

In the way of pouring rain the seeds give their growth
The black clouds make their roots grow even stronger
On the top of that mountain you sense the vultures wreathing your guilt
The forgotten are here to ensure your collapse

The fear is what wraps around your shallow mind irreversibly
The struggle already lost defines you now
And the wounds chain you inside the wrath

In the mirror you see, there’s only you
At the centre of your thoughts, there’s only you
You're breaking the hand that feeds you for the very last time
Envenom the ties you used to cherish

Omission speaks volumes of these consequences yet to breathe air
So inhale the pain if you no longer feel
Reflect yourself, the time has a grasp on your frailty
You're swelling from the inside
Your body can't withstand the pressure

Walk down the path that leads you astray
On the brink of isolation you descend
Those hollow promises pull you deeper below
Deliverance is no option
Is this what you sought for?
Is this what you solicited?
Replaced your heart with a black stone
Your journey destined to desolation
