The hindering constraints of existential consciousness
Compounded by external manipulations
I seek the truth of the substance
Deliver me from the failing devotion
I must escape the grasps of these hideous beasts
Their grotesque thirst for death multiplies

As the light fades, a whispering darkness appears
Distorted images depicting a different season
This is not where I was
This is where I was going
An unexpected shift in perception

A burning gaze
The jackal’s glare is that of the eternal dead
Rotting flesh exposes the structure of bone beneath
A mammoth created to carry the weight of endlessness

They were never gods
Just perverse creations
Of a corrupt design
An obligation defected
The price of integrity, a worthless endeavor
To the indiscretion of the fool
A bargain for a cadaver

Upon the scales of eternity judgment will prevail
The meticulous precision of the arbitrator
Observes a shift in the balance

The mystery of existence revealed
Beneath the veil of knowledge is the bride of tangibility
Within the repetitious arteries
Screams for mercy, never answered, never remembered
