dark barren trees lifeless or so it seems the dried up wells and decay-filled smell tickle the un-pleasantries the essence of hope in a land so bleak a future so uncertain an endeavour so weak from the window she envisions the fantasies of dreams her mind seeks the space between the bars to be lost between the stars through the night they wait for me to seek the morning light there are no days days without me now hold me tight while i lay over the edge it decays listening what did it say the voices fade to comprehend the depths she fathom across the oblique rays of light forced to obey the fabricated truths her misfortunes blessed WITH lies engulfed in lucidity the child of allusion the lynx and the lion obscured in confusion so simplistic is the beauty against her complex wired mind misguided child grown so dependent and placed her trust in the hands of those she loved through the night they wait for me to seek the morning light there are no days days without me now hold me tight while I lay over the edge it decays listening what did it say the voices fade there the source of screams my helpless father as in my dreams buried beneath the sand he yells as I grip his hand my tears pollute the water forced to watch him die suffocated beneath the surface its strength compels my misery she stands in the fields alluding and the fire burns her mind such decrepit frail young beauty converge with her strife thick clouds shift and your wilting stems are drowning the wretched power of the sea spins the typhoon to be betrayed by the force of the moon in the sky for I can summon the tides and from my knees I could see him watching over me torn at the seams I stumble and fall I breach the fog

brilliant voices bring forth agony shatter my own misery decaying sins of impurity delight my sense of victory my disgusting voice and words of fury will pierce your heart like poisoned thorns in patience and silence they await the fairest treat your suckling meat take a look and burn in heat from the boiling breath on your neck this i create in false design to displace your frail mind i disease to the sorely release through ultimate storm plague feasts righteous glory and out of the dirt to darken this sick tainted earth free to the sky to bestow their new lives two pacing creatures so beautiful with blood-lust spit dripped from their lips their lurking eyes are fixed on you to ravage your mind until i’m satisfied i disease to the sorely release through ultimate storm plague feasts righteous glory a new empire is born they the lynx and the lion minions set forth my fiends OBEY whom wish defy one bleed fall obey seventeen dance with me and i will guide you through your darkest truths i won’t fall to seventeen guide me hold me now just help me dance with me and i will guide you through your darkest truths her soul cleanse the impurities anoint to cure the suffering now not forget to breathe and fall to seventeen rise from the dark radiate the sky light the way out and isn’t this what you wanted to live your life of fantasy to be with those that you adore did you expect even more brilliant forces threaten me scour my sense of victory the gates of ava unlocked unsealed bridge the powers to devour me black light discolours the water she cast the wicked shadows

walk through the garden of confusion i'm feeling numb there isn’t a thing in the world that can change this anxiety preventing me to grow and move on from the tragedies that surround me and swallow me whole like the tides open my eyes to discover the world unseen for there is nothing to fear the obliquity of the ecliptic keeps the world from turning upside down scraping the edge of her own priceless beauty she withers in filth crazed in happiness such grave accomplishment of walking the circles that lead her nowhere this silence must be stopped what’s become of me is despiteful unequivocal i wanna scream at the top of my lungs it's the only fucking thing that keeps me sane now i see it's not my fault it was you all along you're the one to blame and isn't this what you wanted to live your life of fantasy to be with those you adore or did you expect even more ava limits pushed so far yet i remain still relying heavily on the mysteries that have a void to fill this was no accident there was someone there i swear i saw him with my own two eyes now i'm alone distraught and sick of the guilt only time can heal wounds that cut so deep naïve child blind to reality grasps the ends that bind sanity satisfied with dreams so hollow gratified by the lies she swallows unable to heal you can't imagine the way that i feel open my eyes to discover the world unseen for there is nothing to fear the obliquity of the ecliptic keeps the world from turning upside down these voices follow me tonight obliterate my comforting fate i cease to create logic condescending actions leave me with nothing there is nothing left for me sanity subsides with the lone girl's cry open my eyes to discover the world unseen for there is nothing to fear the obliquity of the ecliptic keeps the world from turning upside down

I. lynx and lion follow the child the one i desire go on you monstrosities let your instincts guide you through the lands i sent you on a mission to find the nectar of the rarest kind soon we shall plant the seed that leads to the wrath of seventeen i’ll wait in silence for the look in your eyes i’ll wait for the day when the darkness pollutes your mind legends speak of a place up towards the sky beyond the constellations between the moon sun and stars changing to become what we once feared reformatting of our minds to seek knowledge and truth and transform our lives as the planets align there is an unusual sight a compelling discovery she begins to wish upon the stars to escape the things that daunts her as she falls onto the brink of insanity oh lynx and lion come forth my minions it is time for my survival i will make the planets align and now deliverance is mine changing to become what we once feared the reformatting of her mind is this the end or just a derailed life II. garden of confusion as time passes by we grow old and dreams start to fade away we seek that one moment to transform our lives our fucking lives crashing waves to change a life in one day now destiny has brought you here this day your life’s gonna change and there’s nothing you can do trembling in fear i won’t let you run away this again no way out look at me now so pitiful deranged and distraught and you know that the worst is coming now you wish you could wake up clenching your clown with a smile wish he’d persuade you though you’re realistic clearly not a magician i feel it creeping through my radiant skin guardian just save me from this cold crazed sin hiding behind a meaningless toy will not save you from what’s to come nothing can be undone now come close lets have some fun let your saviour see as the darkness spreads through your soul and then it scars you and leaves you cold there’s no turning back from this like your dad's seen soon you shall join him torn in between it seems that you're scared you can’t approach me must call out your minions to play these cat chase games as you watch from a distance the hell is this come on man the fuck up and cut this shit or is there truth when i say that you flinch get scared when i say boo i guess i’ll never understand your reasons for taking everything away from me our time on earth is short we must all fight for a purpose learning from past experience don’t assume just build but it’s too late for you fragile minds will turn to darkness and now we will witness reformatting i walk through the garden of confusion i am lost i see the path laid before me this epiphany has encouraged me to move forward to conquer the dreams that i once pursued we all create our own paths it seems though this may be a parallel journey it takes one line to end differently III. roots of darkness harvesting her sweet essence is a treat worth longing for biting on the flesh to satisfy their corrupt desires her taste a delicacy feeding my pleasures the foul forced injections into her such unwanted fornication a permanent seed planted in her womb the roots of darkness spread through her insides growing into leafless branches that relinquish all the good once inside her the sounds of squealing and fear echo as the lighthouse shines its light her guardian gives her the strength to overcome this morbid sight IV. disintegrated stones obliquity of the ecliptic divide the angle i envision the gates they the lynx and lion now transform my life i’ll transform your fucking life i fall to the ground it’s all over now darkness i escaped through the fog strange voices keep on telling me to keep on running through the misty bog towards the light

rise from the dark radiate the sky the sun of my world i have tripped and fallen derailed my train of thoughts all my memories have been scattered but what’s the point of recovery i have lost everything i held close to me and worst of all i can’t even breathe in fact i solidified my individuality by redefining your interest in me your first foot steps into my life was that of death and nothing more but without clarity i will always be your devolving spore out of this shady origin i have waken to this world not forgetting that these mysteries of her are so hollow now void my subtleties i've grown so attached to something i don't even know yet i cannot cease this belligerence i fear these thoughts of her are fading she knows she’s always got me chasing her rise from the dark radiate the sky recall all my dreams the lynx and lion bow at your feet you impede on my true beliefs it is you who mustn’t succeed analyze my sketches and see the lines i hate my designs are faceless and resemble the changes to my self-indulged fate and isn’t this what you want to be with those you adore to live this life of fantasy or did you expect even more yet my eyes are twisted spinning and searching i cannot see that you are the best part of me i fear these thoughts of her are fading always on my mind she’s always got me chasing fire burning fire chars the sketches one chance i should have had to understand the nightmares of the lynx and lion pump me full of fear and my wishes turn to ash and disappear i am breaking my devotion this curse has caged fear of futures now watch how i can break from these chains and set myself free far from the negligence that blisters your hands it was you that nailed the spikes in my integrity if that were not my disease nor my burden i’d feel sympathy but this has gone too far and now your womb must bleed i close my eyes to obstruct the light that shines embrace the dawning sky amidst the withered hopes a love was born to be sun of the world
