Track Name: orpheus in the underworld
the waters of lethe
hidden fingers soothing memory
something you can't see
whispers soft and makes everything still

the waters of lethe
rising fast and passing far beneath
subterranean seas
decomposing anything we've built
Track Name: solstice
solstice


watching all the seasons die
it's september already
time to travel inwards

watching all the seasons die
we are all walking a tightrope closer
to the end of our lives

another year older

.

the days will lengthen and the light will come
if i can make it through the night
the days will lengthen and the light will come
after midwinter's long night

the stars hang heavy in the black-framed sky
trying to tear their way through to the light
the days will lengthen and the light will come
if i can make it through the night

one king will kill the other
from winter into summer

if i can just play dead through the darkness
without any blood spilled
on the things i've built
if i can just play dead
