Peripeteia Lyrics
Within this black mirror
I embrace my truest form.
To know thyself and trust no one
In blackest sin the sheddings done.

This sum of scars remains the same.
Repentance laced with hexed benevolence.
Wounds kissed with salted lips.
As the life I rode in on is now weak with rust.

Husk removed in forlorn decay.
Communion fed with tears of wine.
Unifying this trinity of scum.
Communication through altercation.

Unwanted son.
Forgiveness never.

Beasts of martyrdom.
Sympathy in admiration.
Forgiveness never.

At what cost were you forsaken?
Do you suffer breathless dreams, back on distant shores?
Not all is lost when bridges burn, reflecting back and forgetting none.

By myself but not myself.
I've moved on as you've moved down.

This trinity of scum.

Accountability lays just beneath me.

This trinity of scum.

I hung for your sins of failed relations.
Not by gallows but by line for all to see.
Embodiment of charity.
"Oh how I've failed," the wretched said.

The perfect life.
The perfect fraud.
The perfect traitor is here at hand.
All I had to lose was everything,
As I gave my life to this void of demand.

Alive within this black mirror for all to see.

This is now existence, as it was always meant to be.

Alive within this black mirror for all to see.

I don't desire acceptance, or cross, or pity.
All past tense and passé.

Within this black mirror
I begin to reflect affinity,
Within this black mirror
I embrace my truest form.

I now know myself and trust no one.
In blackest sin the sheddings finally done.
