Blood From The Air


A sleeping explorer
His wandering mind
Crossed over the border
A mind like a cemetery
Where the corpses
Are turning
Where the bodies
Twist deep
In the frozen grip
Of a dreamless sleep
Then the lowest
Comes up
Like a wreck
From the depths
He hears night calling
And has dreams
Of waking
Here in this brightness
That burns like
Slow lightening
He sees words
Burnt in ice
Reads, the world is
A wound
Effects of the animal
Animal sound effects
He says, death
He is my friend
He promised me
A quick end
Says, the world is
In pain
And should be
Put down
And god is a sadist
And that he knows it
The depths of the
Night sky
Reflects in his eye
He says
Everything changes
And everyone dies
And the night
Slits her veins
And the
Darkness drains
And the void
Rumbles in
Like an
Underground train
Forever comes closer
The world is in pain
We all must be shown
We must realise
That everyone changes
And everything dies
