Solar Sacrament

lyrics

Lurch through the earth as I reach for the night
With nary a breeze to nurture my mind
Rivets of sweat soak the damning regrets
In the tired pursuit of another sunset

The dream of release, of a sullen retreat
An astral projection over sun-roasted fields
An incessant longing over dry river days
An impossible shelter from the shattering gaze

Sheltered from the gaze
From the scalding sun's rays
Exalted in our rage
Against the scorching summer plague

There was no solace here
No peace among those hills
Far beyond those ruined lives
No place to flee or hide

Solar scars, burning sacraments
To hollow days, long since gone
Solar scars, scalding sad lament
Solar scars, burning monuments
In exile from the sky
Solar scars, rusted artifacts
Of rivers all but dry

The road that leads back there
Through empires torched to the ground
Relics of dust and despair
Petrified in the absence of sound

Solar scars, burning sacraments
To hollow days, long since gone
Solar scars, scalding sad lament
Solar scars, burning monuments
In exile from the sky
