Apoptosis

Beyond Grace

Band/Artist: Beyond Grace

Album: Seekers

Where lies the strangling fruit
That came from the hands of the sinner
I shall bring forth the seeds of the dead…

To share with the worms, who gather in the darkness that surrounds this world
And with the power of their lives they shape these words
Giving their voices to the formless and unheard
Speaking for the ones that never were

Now I am filled with light
Suffused with knowledge and a sense of hidden purpose
A burning brightness just beneath the surface

Apoptosis, the destruction of the self
The death of the ego, unconsciously compelled
To sacrifice and shed, the frailty of our flesh
Until the light is all that’s left

And all shall come to share this revelation, of the beauty in the desolation

But in the black waters, where the sun still shines at night
The fruit shall come ripe, in a darkness so golden
And as they blossom, all our sins will be forgiven
Forever washed away, by this beautiful decay

A malady of melody
Sings like fire through my burning veins
Pregnant with the promise of the coming change

Apoptosis, the destruction of the self
The death of the ego, unconsciously compelled
To sacrifice and shed, the frailty of our flesh
Until the light is all that’s left

All shall be granted their own illumination, in the glory of annihilation

I am the prophet of the plague
I am the herald of the passing of an age
