lyrics

WHEN ONE CRIES
INTO THE NIGHT
THE NIGHT ANSWERS BACK, NOT WITH A HOWL
NOR WITH A GRUNT

BUT ONLY A CHRISTENING OF SPIRIT
FOR IN THE DARKEST OF CORNERS
THERE LURKS THE GRAND DESIGN
THE GLISTENING CHALICE OF INTENT

SATISFIED BY DESTINATION.
MOVING THROUGH COSMOS IS A SILENT HUNTER
A STAR SHROUDED IN BLACK DOGS
AND HAMMERING FIRE

HE IS THE DARK SMITH, THE METALLIC WARLORD
CROUCHING BEHIND BARRIERS STREWN WITH ROCK
MANIPULATING THE ELEMENTS
WITH AN EYE THAT KNOWS LITTLE OF STORIES PAST

FOR TIME DOES NOT MOVE FOR THIS ONE
HIS CONCEPT OF STORY IS THAT OF THE CHASE
PERPETUAL, A FAINT CRY
FEET POUNDING ACROSS THE SKY

THE WARM RUSH OF PENETRATION
AND THE CLASP OF THE WOUND
KNOWN BY RECEIVER AS WELL AS GIVER
GRACE IS A WORD

NOT A STATE, GRACELAND IS A PLACE
THAT PROMISES MUCH BUT DELIVERS LITTLE
THE KING WAS NEVER A HUNTER
BUT AN IMAGE PEOPLE GAZED UPON WITH GOLDEN EYES.

EVERYTHING HE TOUCHED TURNED TO SHIT
A CAVALCADE OF DISUTILITY
TEETH MARKS THE ONLY EVIDENCE
OF HUNGER.


FOR TIME DOES NOT MOVE FOR THIS ONE
HIS CONCEPT OF STORY IS THAT OF THE CHASE
PERPETUAL, A FAINT CRY
FEET POUNDING ACROSS THE SKY

FOR IN THEM WE DO NOT
FORGE THINGS BUT FIND A STABILITY
OF STORY, A CIRCLING THAT DOES NOT
PROMISE ETERNITY

BUT DELIVERS
A BEAUTY BOUND BEYOND ASSUMPTION
AND ANIMAL
CHAOS
