Come from the depths below a vision is displayed.
Crying, a tale of myth tells of the things I’m meant to be.
Into the dark a vessel carries me.
Arms locked to the one I love, then flung into the endless night.
Countless succession with faceless intention.
Come face to face with the things that haunt me.
I set my sights on endless infamy, or the void.
Now racing inside are my thoughts of you.
Drift on the way.

I measured all the things I made and found the misery I’d grown
It’s time to get away and find the strength to let me breathe.

I am the dark, and of the darkness I create.
The pressure in me swells into the fury of the wake.

I’m leaving everything.
I can’t be the one to carry us from the start.
Through all that's wrong, there comes the dawn.
Embrace the flame of clarity.

I fall away. The absence of the time we made is consuming me

Fill in the smoke and fog of a thousand lifetimes.
Release the flame under the moonlit sky of evolution.

Into the night I am woven.
Visions I’ve seen hurt no more.

Become the darkened sky and sun
Breathe in the ocean.
I am alive.
