A labyrinth of trenches Effluent collects at the bottom My limbs sink deep Muck consisting of flesh and excrement leaves rings around my knees Towering walls engraved in hieroglyphs And the remains of broken fingernails Failed attempts to escape Unholy historical record A millennia of pain How long have I wandered? My brain finally stirs I've forgotten to ponder My punishment still lingers And for how much longer An eternal march surrounded by human shaped husks I feel nothing towards these echoes The isolation weighs heavier still The damage to my sanity has grown severe God, Time, and men's goodwill Each step becoming more obscure Trudging for centuries A fleeting image of disparate markings Catch my eyes from a thousand-yard stare My body contorts with excitement to take me there A new path opens before me Just as bleak but different at the very least Have I gone this way before? Desperate for some kind of transmutation I cross the threshold of the door What new terrors have I found? Standing on rolling plains and hills A new realm And the domain of undiscovered horrors A fool I stood before it Oh great monolith terrible and strange I crushed myself onto it Several lifetimes of pain Cacophonous hymns sang their ungodly refrain My skull splits, my consciousness bursts Until I bled My bones splintered Again and again My existence ground In mortar and pestle
