Night Skies over Nothingness Lyrics

5. Night Skies over Nothingness (9:27)
It's time to snuff this torch of yours.
I've held on for far too long.
Let the embers fade and pass.
Red with fury into a spectral haze.

Memories and dreams burn thin,
Turned to ash and spread like your final wish.

My life commemorates your past tense.
Yet this light I call my own,
No longer leads that path.
Foot in mouth instead of tail.
Chewed like the fool until there's no way left to stand.

No longer claiming ruined flesh,
just wasted time in wasted skin.
Wasted namesake to pass mental disease.
Afraid to exist.
So exhausted from hiding.

Disbelief in make believe.
Nothing more than the best and worse for you.

We darken the sun with ouroboros eclipse.
I wear this crest now instead of Kerr.

In hindsight I've always been the black son.
The singularity of this black hole.
Night skies over nothingness.
Stardust lost to emptiness.

I lived hell for both of you.
Bound by blood and bone.
Wearing abuse that's not my own.

These tides crashed over all our lives making waves in twilight.

Our lives can't cross anymore.
Yet we both expire all the same.
In the same space. At the same time.
Traverse particles in dark matter collide.

Not glass houses but a hall of mirrors is where I dwell.
With every crack I die and then born again,
So many versions of this pain within these panes
All staring back and all fucking the same.

Words dispelled and curses lifted.
Only I can haunt myself with memories that don't die.

These memories a loop in which I dwell.
This disappointed youth in which I fell.
This sadness is a loop in which I dwell.
Until that loop tightens to end this hell.
