lyrics

I've nurtured this light
(For how long?)
I've abandoned sense of time
Was it petulant
To have galvanized that bird
In your throat
If it would only sing me home?
But, I'm not mad, I swear

I'll devour every single
Heathen on my trail
This Eden is mine to claim
Though I haven't found it yet
To the bottom I'll sink
With this cursed head of ivory

So brick by brick
I decorate this tower to transmit
That even if by death
So be it, the cost of all my ambitions
Am I reaching you?

With me, drift into the void
Below, watch light be destroyed
The abyss, into the abyss
Am I reaching you?
