lyrics

Clepsydra

I am trapped inside of this clock
Every second measured in toxic rain
And layers of akashic haze
I can feel the pain clearly
Someone has malevolent thoughts
I can see them writing themselves
In angles on the ultramarine
Walls that contain me

Turning hands, and I will spin
Silk chiffon billows
The gears they click and moan within
This nightmare feels well-known

Water drops and mixes with blood
Every moment moving closer
Toward the feared return of that man
Motorcycle’s sound meaning
He is getting closer to home
Muscles tightening every second
Ticking by inside of this clock
Every door is locked

Make me disappear now
Make me so still
Taken into quicksand radios
An optical illusion of knives through skin
I must insist he cannot win
