lyrics

Her heart an ambition
Tearing at the night sky
She trails to the edge
The tellurian verge of this world

Through boiling seas
Burning black earth
Bottomless chasms

Tending her wound
Shielding her heart
Together, apart
She's nearer to the white stone

At last
Transgressing the
Emanation

Withered and swamp-bathed
A shroud on the world

Offal and butchery

Claw at her wounds
Rending her heart
Pulling apart
Until she's bare

The firmament screams the song of longing

The petrified corpses
She must climb

A billion passions through time
Canonized on this stone
Carved in killing order

To see beyond it she must climb
A monument to tragedy

To see beyond it she must climb
She will fall
She must fall

Elytrous spine
Structures align
Taunting her will to ascend

As she traces
The flesh of the stone
Constellations of names
Carved of no hand
Connected by fate
All there's been and will be

Webbed are the names
Connected by grooves
Knowledge and memory, truth
She knows that it is a lie

She must climb

The name of her father is there
Her mother, insane
Her brother is there
Stillborn
Impostor in her place

An endless voyage through time
Built the horror of this stone
Impostor
Impostor

To see beyond it she must climb
A monument to tragedy

Dead, in his place
In his place
In her place
She was born

For every time you've been a coward
For every mollified excuse
For every time you've stood for nothing
Construing justice for the truth

You were there
Your name was there
You were there
And she must climb

With your silence she's been scarred
And your cruelty remains
Your name is there
Your name is there

You are there
You are there
And she must climb
She has to climb

She will fall

She must fall

She shall fall

She will fall
