lyrics

Onward I went in water
Birth of Venus, with a blank face
And a bland taste lingering on the tip of my tongue
Bite the apple and follow the morning star

When worlds fall and shadows grow
What is life if not freedom to live
I sensed the power of storms in the air
And I moved along with the wind in my back

Onward I went through fire
The heat, flames intoxicating, red and blue
Defiantly dancing, chaotic steps
The serpent’s daughter as one with the witch

But the song of a sword’s clinging metal
My wisdom stolen by works of gray
Deceived by the madmen
And my body was engulfed in the pyre

Marks burned in the soil
Narrating shackled lives, slit throats
Trembling limbs in liberating creation
Do my hands have value now?

Onward I went, through the bowels of the earth
Cold, faceless, mud covered creature
Brutal and beautifully unkempt
The smell of cloth, the sweat and the dirt

With grace I clean up the sickening stench
With light heart I breath the dampened air
(And I stomped the devil’s torso into the ground)
