Through my wake
Follow me home
Dangerous thoughts of mine

Sown the seed and reaping reality
Motions bread a fearful antagony
I wasted time on a savage life
A dark human cluster of revelry

Here we sail on seas of uncertainty
Storms in tail my founder pursuing me
Is it me? Is it memory?
Do I reflect this Grey?

In the firelight
A life of black and white
Something new I forge between us two
Still the anger stirs
Red hot but cold at first
Walls of mine crash down to grant me sight
No longer silent this violence I strain to contain

Superfluous and prone to rust
It isn't fair, your choice was mine
By silhouettes, I've lived my life
In a phantom black that you deny
Another's touch and hope to clutch
An arrested sin I will begin
Stare at the wall, forget it all
Begin to believe I may yet live

A world of eyes have seen my crimes
Only I know of all of yours

Please tend these wounds
And steel my mind
I've lost my way
And I'm losing track of time

It's sinking in
These were my sins
I'll tear apart my mind to make amends

Only my centre remains
Only my temperaments fade
Only my centre remains
Only a beast left to tame
