about

Enter: The Dark Night of the Soul. As one crosses the threshold, efforts of the alchemists, Renaissance magicians, and Victorian occultists begin to form the formless. A cold ancient fire is found and dismantles the core. Only the unseen is left, its helpless frame discouraged. It’s never enough just to grow.

Track Name: Grow
It started with a choice
From there the seed was sown
Living with hope hung from a rope
Watch as it floats into the unknown
Unsure what it would cost
But it would
Disease planted like roots
And it pushed back
Let it push back
Blending becoming a part of my blood
Dug out the heart to plot and put it in some pottery
Now I study botany to figure out what's wrong with me
For as far as I can see there is no chance of separation
Head is damaged like a stem
The mask is added strength protected
Unable to answer questions about the past
And what it all meant
All I've got is passion seeking water to keep wet
Cuz fire is the wrong type of light I need to stabilize
Flame of life
I dream to stay alive!

A fire inside burns me cold
Setting flame to frames of mind
Nourishing my soul
But it's never enough just to grow
No! Follow me now ‘til the middle night come
We've all been down that road
There's a fire inside
Setting flame to frames of mind
Nourishing my soul
Frozen cold alive
But it's never enough just to grow
No! Follow me now til the middle night come
We've all been down that road...

It's hard when the only wrong is what is right
And every day has slipped away into the night
I walk through heaven with blood-stained hands
Alone in this desert of demons
My Garden of Eden has vanished (I'm magic)
Hallucinations please don't fail me
Happiness betrayed me
I drift and drift and drifted
Lost all my soul my spirit
And I drift and drift and drifted
Lost all my soul my spirit
Everything was a lie
Holding onto thoughts that would not die!

All I wanted was for you to understand
And here I am wandering endlessly
In my sleep on the same path
It's like lines form circles
I'm alone with only your world, thoughts, and no Self
Valtiel has disappeared I'm living in your mirror
Can't get out I slowly fade in fear a ghost in your nightmare
My flesh is cold I feel no pain
Descending like a star to burn myself away
I've got hell for hire I caught fire searching for so much light
What's it mean to really die?
I dream to stay alive!

Inspired by the flames of the fire.
GROW!
