Detached from their hollow shells of flesh and bone they rise and gather they all come back to me I am a ghost town a crossroads in a spectral wasteland I have witnessed the descent of countless souls reshaped into life forms so devoid of life mistaking dreams for death Spectres bent under the weight of all the lives they did not live and all the needs they did not meet and all the friends they did not trust World-shifters yet nowhere at home The wraiths who haunt my astral alleys in the first light of false dawn are but dreaming minds of breathing men begging in regret let us stay let us stray
3.
In blind marksmen and in naked dreamers deep below it sleeps in the pit You live for the dream of others and yet you drool on their boots like a dog Smell choke sob Taste cringe cling Child of man this dream is not yours only this pain is what is yours Deep below it sleeps in the pit
4.
Tread lightly lest the desert hear you Tread lightly lest the desert know you Be the sands do not leave a trace Be the sands do not let it be known that you are not of the desert Drown in my eyes invincible Bask in my glory the ultimate If you know my name cry it out
5.
The beast is us and we have forgotten the beast in us gazing through time Teratorn colossal wings beating air a time-lost memento Teratorn a giant in flight an airborne reminder that darkens the skies Teratorn just like you we will spread our wings take the leap and fall into oblivion Teratorn claws and beak hands and tongue The crown the pinnacle of prehistoric glory Like yours our call will reverberate through the ages A dirge for long forgotten kings
6.
Engulfed in signals meaningless to us in a maze of arbitrary symbols and signs We find ourselves snared between the lines standing blindly in the eye of the storm With open chests for everyone to see in a world of actors and mimes They speak in riddles as they peer into the world through darkest slits in masks of deceit A dance in thorns anxious not to hurt deadly to the touch and forever excluded from this the greatest masquerade of all Where a single gesture can cast the weak into the abyss Here we stand a herd shunned by the herd and find you: a vessel for our voices as you find beauty in weakness
