lyrics

I martyred for a dying god
A hollow offering to deafened ears
And a motionless heart

Now there's just anger
And fear and self doubt
Just stoic skin that begs for rest
And solace from carrion birds

And I could never be that landmark
That points you home
None more than ornamental
Hedera clinging to corpses of oak

Am I to, pathless, wander on in search of missing pieces?
Beneath the rolling clouds and absent Polaris
Because this leaden heart fatigues the surest limbs
To break itself

What would you have me give
To regain grace and sense of purpose?
Because this took the best of me
And still left just desertion

Now only silence and quiet cold
The memory of embers
And not the strength for flint and steel
Just a ceaseless, hopeless hope
And a ragged, begging throat
They say we hold the closest, what will kill us
But what the fuck is letting go?

Am I to, pathless, wander on in search of missing pieces?
Beneath the rolling clouds and absent Polaris
Because this leaden heart fatigues the surest limbs
To break itself

No precious offeringNo season left to sow
No hope
No hope
No hope
