I Carve Away

lyrics

This lantern my only weapon as her voice clears the room
She's leading us up past the gates, down the hole, through the muck
Cut through the grass, make your way up and in
She's leading us down, deep within
It's time to set her free

The guards will kill on sight; they don't ask questions, no
Hold my fingers down, let go, he spins around
One heart left! Hold on, or twirl and fall
There's always rats and snakes behind the throne

At least death meant I got to hear that enchanting song on repeat
Oh, let's not forget it also meant it was his turn

Aimlessly I journey through and I learn where to and not to go
Let's pay the piper a visit; we just might catch him this time
Or the silent man by the desert door- we're not equipped for him, no
You're off picking 'shrooms in the lost woods
Let's fool around in this world some more

And worlds within worlds we'll need to battle through
Full power, swing, it spins and takes them down
That persistent warning gave you an edge, yes
This you could control

I carve this shame away
Into the flesh I carve away
Those feeble cries? Sweet symphony
That final breath? Ecstasy

There has got to be another fountain
I'll never be strong enough for you

At least death meant I got to hear that enchanting song on repeat
Oh, let's not forget it also meant it was his turn.
