The Excruciating Journey, Part III: The Awakening Lyrics

9. The Excruciating Journey, Part III: The Awakening (4:47)
Rot! Grime! Angst and blight!
The crepuscular horizon reveals a lurid penumbra!
Trapped inside a spiral of an endless consternation
Can't tell up from down or even feel a sturdy ground

Just a neverending disarray, can't avoid going astray
Life a fly in a flushing toilet
Surely seems the end has come

At last, clarity arrives
The awakening comes as a freezing wind
Comprehension is washing out the murkiness

All along, the rules were not of slavery
Seeing the paths and trails now and where they lead

Both abyss and light, becomes so visible and clear
Seeing the wicked trap that led his life astray
A bitter wrath starts building up inside
Conceiving the immense and morbid putridness

The endless tunnel has a shimmering light in the end
But the way is long and excruciating

"That rotten filthy beast, such a foul deceiver!"
"I will despise and curse it, until the very end!"

"This one shall surely never see the light"
"What a childish and pathetic struggle"

"I can see its schemes and ensnaring powers"
"But the laughs will come to and end"
And so, the batles goes on...

After many years with blinding fiends
The light feels so sharp, a needle in the eye!
And the vexer fights in its endless crooked ways
With its traps and vast delusive haze

At last it seems the door has been shut
The endless tunnel the torment now has past
This purifying air revives the newborn one
The unfettered life, has just begun!

Free! Finally unchained!
Free! From the awful misery!

A magnificent rebirth and clarity has come!
Free from the slavery!
