lyrics

Head Stone

young / father gave me a gun

said, ‘ you're gonna’ have a choice ’

I pointed it at the sun



lowered a couple inches / finger sticking to trigger

yellow bird on a limb / I shot her between the lungs



done / barely made a sound

as she fell through the air / hit ground



grandfather's face embodied disappointment

bullet shells in the snow / his eyes, I did avoid them



old soul / we approached slow

blood stains seeped through a yellow fur coat



knelt down / she had no chance

held her warm body inside my cold hands



hearing long winded songs she had once sung

looking down at the dirt that had been dug

put her in the the hole, looked up at that sun

pointed that hurt at myself and hung...



my head low/

nothing is set in stone

written on that headstone

these empty hands stay closed

when its time to let go

I did what I could to cope / all night

coulda' been an unseen glow / twilight

living underneath those bones



hang my head low

nothing is set in stone

written on that headstone

looking back at that dusty road

when its time to let go



we did what we could to cope / all night

coulda' been an unseen glow / twilight

watch the scenery unfold



scanned the forest trying to put a wing to the song

feel like a feather on the breathe of God

stretched out limb to limb sky opened up above

blood moon / starlight

frozen water that I'm treading on



spark flame / I march to the grave

dark cave / arch angels awake

hot craze / I change with the shape

star gaze / heart is a maze



navigated rooms of a thick skull

no windows / womb to tomb where the wind blows

digging deep through the ruins with a pitchfork

and when I finally came too, I was in for it



stomach and knees in knot

energy freeze / it'll thaw / steam in a pot

time to put the keys in the lock

not leaving ‘till I can see clean through the fog



weave in and out between seasons / amnesia

the cycles are endless / I sharpen my spear tip

I've been here before, this is merely survival

on the hunt for, unforgotten dreams that were lost



I am the target on hunt for the weapon

the movement is simple / soon learned to be difficult

distorted thinking from wishful to dismal

extremes left me blinded / can't run from diseases we caught

washed clean

swelling in the backbone

ooooooo

heavy heart, headed back home

ooooooo

blue spark in a black hole

ooooooo

keys in the lock



starving for that daylight

nothing is set in stone

diggin' my own grave sight

looking back at the past I know

as it slowly fades right

through the cracks of unknown / all light

coulda' been an unseen glow / twilight

living underneath those bones / alright



snake can't see when it's shedding skin

that just means that he's ready to strike

a tall entity, like a small enemy

sees it'sall everything

means that I'm setting my sights

upon anything



sinking both teeth / medicine

spread thin / breathe / thick smoke

poison / free / heaven is

so deep / deep, we go



surrounded in a botanical garden with anacondas pirañas

all sorts of immortal monsters to conquer

the blue water is rising higher

the harder I try keep my level head above it

I cut adouble edge sword out

grew / two sets of new horns

unsettled / new mortar and pestle

plucking peddles / fill the gut up with edible

luke warm heavy-metals / build a pedestal

watch authority crumble into puddles of celestial

perception nexus / extraterrestrial

wet / elemental message / guess I'll never know

wrote / sent a letter home in hopes that I could let em know

how I cope with the changes in the whether, its inevitable



blood in the snow

standing alone in the cold, clutching a stone

on the hunt to let go / but I know that there's nothing I need

something I want

no where to go / nothing to hold

head to the stone / headed home

head to the stone / headed home

head to the stone / headed home

head to the stone / headed home



I hang my…

my head low/ nothing is set in stone

written on that headstone

these empty hands stay closed

when its time to let go

I did what I could to cope / all night

coulda' been an unseen glow / twilight

living underneath those bones



hang my head low

nothing is set in stone

written on that headstone

looking back at that dusty road

when its time to let go



we did what we could to cope / all night

coulda' been an unseen glow / twilight

watch the scenery unfold



do you know where you are?



look at the fire

look at the star



do you know who we are?



look at the fire

look at the star
