30 Miles From Here

from by Vex



From my place among the clouds
Buried beneath centuries of stone
I bore witness but saw nothing at all
Wisps of smoke rise, nests of serpents fall
Fountain of fertility, bless us with your grace
Lecherous siren, spewing out your filth
Forced into the night, alone and afraid
Forced to face the light, a demon they have made

Never unknown, always alone

Staring out through the cracks again
Piercing shards of the seraphim

Gliding through a chasm of broken glass
She is here when I am ever alone
When the blood has all but dried
Faint traces of her movement will dream me away from here

30 miles from here, from where I was last seen
Many months have passed since the last drop of rain
The rivers have dried, every harvest has died
Collapsing the view of this age

A skyward exile
Project me from here
From the land that speaks my name

Soaring Cygnus,
The dream of vast centuries

Grasping, gasping, losing control
Falling so fast, sinking so slow
Shadows creeping, darker than night
Breaking the door down to embrace the light
