Track Name: Moss
Deep engravings into the stone
And left in the corner under the old tree
Centuries past and the stone remains
But the memory died

The faded marble eyes of the angel
Turn away from it
Almost in shame

With the grey rain came cracks
And the memorial fell apart

Died twice
Under the funeral bells
And again under the sight
Of none
Track Name: A Grave Mocked With Lice
Shallow under the sludge
Drowned in the filth
Crowned in maggots

The joints become rot
As each bone fall apart
Abandoned

Dead under the clean sky
Track Name: The Oldest Plague
Tendrils reaching for the undefended
Injecting deep inside
Throats slowly close away
In the morning
The funeral moves
Down into Earth
Track Name: At The Opaque Mourning
Wrestled to the blank ground
Tear eaters
Whisper to the king alone
All the while they feast

Whisper to the fog and all
When all is left is none
Track Name: The Bleeding
Drifting through corridors
Screaming for the light
Only the last of the stones remain
With their runes inscribed

Standing firm with a foam backbone
Triumphant over a ghost
The suicidal hallucination

Or a dream laced in your sorrow?
Track Name: Eyes of the Buried
At dawn they left, with trails of ash and bone
The brick chimney breathed them away
The real manifestation of life
Taken by itself away

If only the leeches sing their song
But they wouldn’t even if they could
They were silenced
Again, by themselves
And the tombs remained touchless
Uncared

They all died, in the end
One by one, each alone
But each are still here
Eyes of the buried
