Haunted by the woods and they were breaking it
Haunted by the woods

Walking by the place of your death dance
Feathers lay with bones
Picked one up and carved a couple holes in it
Now I speak your tongue

Always counting down waveforms are dropping
Calendars within me circular rule
Don’t know why I keep forgetting not to trust them
The damaging trespassing of fools

Special circumstance, lupine, obsidian
Blue snow on the moon
They met at the quarry to lay down again
Commune moss in a rose quartz vein

Always standing downwind from the trappers
Enemies of the deontology
Don’t know bout the energy thats blasting
Or the trusting in sacred forms

Hand me down insecurities
Smashed the ash and lashed and lashed and lashed
Put your hands inside me I’m not past it
Buckshot python in the pool

Step by step you could be elevating through the passes
But you stand in lowland fleece
Far above the sad dependent masses
You could have found a moment of peace

Turn around and see me
Standing on a pile of old phones
Pushing further southward
Memories echo off new cut stone

Inhabited by the rage there was no changing it
He saw it all as it was and will always be
He killed them both right there on the gravel
Yhen he threw the blessed hatchet to the sea

Not a minute passed before he went back again
Staring at the dead bodies
He took the heart of his former lover
And ate it with a peach from a plum tree
