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
