With The Night, and Climbs Into The Unsturdiness.

Subtle Pieces of Jagged Rock mould themselves Into
Shadows, Underneath the Crescent of The Horizon.

He is Forced To Live, Misunderstood By Love.

Floor Repeatedly in Large Thought out Punctures.

All Strewn Through With The Holes of His Ill Intent.

Struggling and Fighting The Liquid Soaks into His Lungs,

Longer Distorted and Cast Themselves upon it's Surface.

His Little Wooden Corpse Carrying Boat, all Strewn Through
With Holes, But Surrounded By Light, It'll Carry Him Forever...
