Antithetical Age

from by Vex



Torrential storms and bouts of rain
Steering us toward unwelcome terrain
Fits of howling and flashes of light
Coursing shivers through cascading night

Towards the day when the spirit sinks away

Heads were bowed and fists were clenched
Somewhere on the floor of this cold, dark room
Revelry's play is misery's way, the siren song for the souls led astray

Sirens sing as the body sinks away

Grasping the sides of this raft to stay afloat
Cold eyes gleaming, cruel and remote

“Your misery carries you down
You'd do just as well to drown
You're nowhere near the shore
So you needn't swim anymore”

The air was so thick and sodden
Throats caked in years of ash and dirt
Speaking is breathing in gusts of the dead
Was it for you that I forged on ahead

Towards the day when the spirit sinks away

With the turgid weight of this sacrament
I ask for nothing but mere remembrance

“Your misery carries you down
You'd do just as well to drown
You're cuffed in there like a clown
When you shouldn't be making a sound”

Upon my fall, the sky shone so bright
In luminescent and eventual white

A cavern of clouds arching so far above
The antithetical yearning for the age of love

Down, the body drifts down
Think nothing of this as I quietly drown
