lyrics

Pick the self apart one scale at a time
Feed myself each piece to the rhythm of breath
Burrow through the ground, seek out every false desire, I'm
Not swimming against the current, I'm
Embracing the freedom hidden in this death, I'm
Setting this effigy of myself afire

I feared the loss of everything but I
Must lose everything to gain something, I
Must reclaim my own false creation, I
Am Saturn taking apart his own son

To be filled i must empty the vessel
Pour out every last delusion held inside
And then shatter the container that once kept it
I will tear down the Tower of Babel
Among the loss and ruin I will abide
Until what digs itself out is my freed spirit

I feared the loss of everything but I
Must lose everything to gain something, I
Must reclaim my own false creation, I
Am sacrificing myself to the sun

Who I thought I was must be crucified
So as to peer beyond the fictitious veil
To see the face of Self that cannot be undone
And so I coil around and face my end
Swallow deep, impale my throat upon my tail
And keep spiraling until death and rebirth are one

I feared the loss of everything but I
Must lose everything to gain something, I
Must reclaim my own false creation, I
Am circling the path of the Son
