Tranquil empty void,
From a time long ago
Limitless blue
The cold leaves me breathless
And I find myself
Lost in sensation
Dark and full of wonder
Great, tumultuous sea
In the shadows there hides
A presence that shall devour me
Whirling currents drag me down into infinity
Mind and body, torn asunder
A different state of being
Through the darkness, I see myself
But do my eyes deceive me?
Endless power pulls me into waves of clarity
Woe, meaningless toil
Spiraling further down this mortal coil
We see not what is in front of us
The void of life just leaves us ravenous
Woe, without purpose
The drum is beaten and we simply row
Waiting patiently
For that feeling of solace
We may only find in sleep
Intoxicated in reverie
Somber recollections
Found in hazy dreams
Woe, saddest elegy
The bed of thorns that rip and tear
That we ought not remedy
For the fires of this pain
Draws on the strings
That play life's threnody
