lyrics

Suffocate in an oasis of dust
The siren's song, wavering like a phantom gust

Choking on shards of the frozen past
False hope at the sight of the mirage
An ethereal vision that shatters like glass
The dream, no more than painful truth

Dead branches ripping at my flesh
Seeking refuge in a rotting foundation
Expectations fade to grim acceptance
My fate is sealed

Buried under years of hope
Lies the last dead verse I wrote
The allure of the encroaching dusk
As it gently clasps around my throat

But I still see the sun
Shine down on nothing new
Lighting my way from here
Along the path I never knew
