Exhibition of Death

Transitioning
Immersing slowly
From one world into another
Are you at peace
Finally?

A new era
This withering coil
What gruesome events take place in the unknown?
Where is this fear stillborn?

Restore my innocence with a wreath of lilies
King vulture is circling above me
Time has transfigured us into untruth
Hanging your symbols on my dissipated youth

If there is no pain
How can there be bliss?
I'm clinging to what I collected so dearly
I want to believe
Origin dismissed
This womb I creep out of is nearly
Dying
Dying
I'm dying
Dying
Dying

And I dig deeper
Placing my fingertips on stardust
Cleansing my skin from rust
And I dig deeper
Placing my vision into hope
Witnessing liberation
And I dig deeper
Until every fractal realigns
Inconsistency synchronized
Abnegation aphorised
Life internalized

Restore my innocence with a wreath of lilies
King vulture is circling above me
Time has transfigured us into untruth
Hanging your symbols on my dissipated youth
Return to innocence on this journey ahead
Pay the ferrymen with pennies for the dead
King vulture and all his crows unite
Encompassing the scenes of the last fight

Make haste
The echoes of the last breath
This is it
They tell me this is death
Make haste
The echoes of the last breath
This is it
They tell me this is death
They tell me this is death
