lyrics

With every breath I feel death lurching a little closer
And I know that I'll keep burning my life away
These weren't my intentions
This all didn't turn out like I planned

We must learn
Yes we must teach ourselves how to embrace
What it is to suffer

From darkness you will garner where the light resides

I crawl through the bayou
I spasmodically writhe like a vermin through each realm
Seeking, searching
Soothsaying
I burrow below
For a peace of mind

For a piece that's mine
I tore it from the whole
I'm entitled to it all
Its fucking mine, I took it, its my own
When I die you'll all fight over to who it belongs

Dance on the knives
Till your mind takes flight
Dance on the knives
Till the forms arise

Caught in the eye
of a hurricane mind
with a hand shakes red and a face shakes white
And you think that its over
That its all alright
Then you gaze inside
And your I divides

You must burn
To be reborn

Dance on the knives till your mind takes flight
Thinker, dance on the knives till the shapes define
And you'll think that its over, dawn of the darkest night
Then you'll see that you're death there's no end in sight

With every breath I feel death lurching a little closer
And I know that I'll keep burning my life away
These weren't my intentions
This all didn't turn out like I planned

When you feel you can't go on, there lies the door
Enter
It lies ahead, waiting for you
Enter
The door

We must learn
Yes we must teach ourselves how to embrace
What it is to suffer

Inside you keep the answers hidden

Pushed down, deep into the spirals of the coil you have to venture
In the darkness there you'll hear laughter echo
Ashes fill your mouth, that bitter taste wisdom

You who held it all in the palm of your hand
You who held it all and yet grasped none of it

Dance on the knives till the flame ignites
You'll think that its closed, you've survived to return to the light
Shudder when you realise you're wrong
