You must have been phlegmatic in stature
The gates of Thanos are a spread eagle wide
You let the shutters make sackcloth and ashes
Out of a blind mans picaresque heart

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

It's not over till the tremulant sings
These ides of march
Are they so make believe
How tempts the revenant
Slice up and not across

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

A mass of gallon sloth
As flys have walls for feet
A rapturous verbatim-someone said but who is to know
And when you find the fringe
The one last hit that spent you
You'll find the ossuary spilling by the day

The iconoclastic had it coming for years
They know the prisons that you have yet to fear
Where thumbs hide inside of sleeping bag mouths
Adlib your memoirs by casting a drought

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

A mass of gallon sloth
As flys have walls for feet
A rapturous verbatim-someone said but who is to know
And when you find the fringe
The one last hit that spent you
You'll find the ossuary spilling by the day

Knife me in hobbling
Talking in its sleep again
Knife me in hobbling
Talking in its sleep again

Knife me in hobbling
Talking in it's sleep again
Knife me in hobbling
Talking in 'it's' sleep again

Virulent hives-of bedpost piles
Virulent hives

Who brought me here?
Forsaken, depraved and wrought with fear
Who turned it off
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here?
Forsaken, depraved and wrought with fear
Who turned it off
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here?
