Unbroken (A Morbid Embrace) Lyrics

4. Unbroken (A Morbid Embrace)
It tears us asunder and lays us to waste
Voices like thunder, a morbid embrace
Descending into ruin, all credence defiled
Casting aspirations, all love swept aside
Lifted up into her arms
Crushing the life from me
Benighted to all her charms
Perpetual dichotomy
Disintegrating schism
Lost in a reverie
Tumultuous conundrum
Elucidate this mystery
She is my nemesis
Bringer of woe, and my death
She is my succubus
My rebirth and every breath
Desecration – these wounds bear no scars
Desperation – an exercise in self-abuse
Degradation – smoke and mirror masochism
Self–deception – cloak and dagger sadism
From the smoldering embers there springs a tiny flame
Into a radiant phoenix reborn through death again
Deep beneath the debris a new seed takes root
From whence a towering oak will flourish once more
The brightest light casts the deepest shade
And in her night, with sanity frayed
Never from this dream awoken
Somehow the circle remains unbroken
