Chasms Lyrics

Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Solar Chamber (10:41)
I bleed boundless in reverie
In woe I am vindicated

Rising of the sweltering sun
Streams of venomous light descend
Impurity swells in a fever of reflection
A plague of a secret unveiled

Sinking in pale misery
Crimson eyes cast searing stares I turn away
Yet they still remain
I lock myself away
Yet they still remain

A body wrapped in wavering veins
Choking and abandoned
I watched each one collapse
Tears of distress erode the flesh
Breathe deep in the dead of night
Caressed by sin

Lost within boundless winds
I fear the coming blaze

I return to solace
Torn and tarnished
Forgotten and grieving

The sun will crucify a staggered soul
The sun will burn the cancer we have become
Death will be the savior

Forever I crave the velvet night
Forever enslaved to the shadows of twilight
2. Chasms (13:05)
Giving into the evils of empathy
Hollow pillars uphold a bedlam of lies
In the dawning of blind love
Deviant devotion is carved into stone

Falling into a fateful night
Fumes of failure arise again
From the sickness and bliss of the needle

I fucking begged
You could only see
What I never wanted to be

Loveless words burn so brightly
Insecurities bleed
I touch but can no longer feel
The throbbing hand of need
This place has become so toxic
Yet we still need to breathe

Break one more promise
I can’t save you
Burn one more promise
You can’t save me
3. Mirage (7:26)
A tenebrous rose
Revels in misery
Wilting with fatal mystique
Yet to drown
Tears crawl down
Longing for some kind of escape
Looming with astral elegance Insatiable desires
Plunging into forbidden play
The scars of sickness
Perennial suffering
The precious poison
Won’t wash this curse away
Pleasure to pain
Shackles clench tighter
Sanity frays
Clinging to life
While nurturing death
Another petal falls away
4. Obsidian Eyes (12:22)
Oh Mother
Oh Father
This was never meant to be

Oh Mother
Oh Father
Relinquish this mistake of a life

Upon waking
Weightless and solitary
I suffer through the void
On the perilous bridge
Between body and spirit
I linger in lore of disgust

This wretched body
The prison of the soul
Weighted by the chains of depression
I could never bear to let you in

Awaiting the footsteps
Stained by revelations
I could never bear to let you in

A tyrannous shyness envelops me
I gaze to the sky with obsidian eyes
In the crawl space I will always be
Nothing to bring me from my knees
