lyrics

I'M DONE, WE'RE DOOMED TO REPEAT,
THIS ETERNAL RETURN, THIS DESIRE TO SLEEP,
OUROBOROS EATING ITS OWN TAIL,
THERE'S NO BALM IN GILEAD,
THERE'S NO WIND IN THESE SAILS.

THESE SMALL WINDOWS OF STABILITY,
OPEN AND SHUT, CLIPPED THE WINGS OF THIS DOVE,
WEAVING DISORDER THROUGH THIS BAMBOO BOOM,
WHY NOT INHALE THE RED DUST,
LINE OUR LUNGS WITH TARRED LOSS.

AND REMOVE ALL OUR TONGUES,
MAKE US MUTE WITH NO SONG.

IS THIS GAP INSURMOUNTABLE?
THEY'RE BUILDING STATUES IN THE SAND,
THERE'S A WHISPERING IN OUR HEARTS,
“THE STRUGGLE OF MEMORY AGAINST FORGETTING”

THAT THERE ARE SECRETS IN THIS LAND,
DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE PLACES HERE,
WHERE NOTHING GROWS BACK?
TURN THE HOURGLASS OVER,
RUN THE FLESH THROUGH OUR HANDS,
HERE IN THIS EARTH LIES A WOMAN,
LIES A MAN.

FAR AWAY FROM THE GIRL,
WITH THE BLACK VELVET BAND.

FAR AWAY FROM THOSE,
WHO BUILD MEMORY'S CENOTAPH.
