Track Name: Earth Spits Fire
EARTH SPITS FIRE

memory is eroding
like a turquoise sarcophagus
a dialect in distress
divide the fire, disband the choir
a triumph of dissonance

A sanguinary spill from a primitive choir
divide the past while the earth spits fire X2
(divide the fire disband the choir)

Three sapphires in a century
burn proof, a treasure
promote the past, a crucible of pleasure
a virtue made vile, heavy distress divine
a pilgrimage to pillage, vicious vital signs

CHORUS

Bridge (spoken)
I can't survive your disdain
this is all I have left
my insides my cells
you've taken what you can to fill your endless well

CHORUS

Your autocracy of success, apathetic bliss
you shall succeed if you are virtuous
a topography of chance, crowned vultures dance
on your cataclysmic crypt

waiting for a twig to break
an apparition of heaven, a heavy crown of words
your cataclysm dazzles, repulsive senses
my splendor on fire
