Smile Like A Devil

Fiend for the fallen
And fall for the things seen
Just outside the shadows of a man
The root of all evil is the smile of a devil.
In my fool youth
I found the favour of flagrant sin
The angels were singing,
The beasts, they were stinging,
And my courage grew at the point of a gun.
And now it's all past,
I'm slowing way down,
What's lost cannot be found
The shovel digs in and takes it's hold,
And my smile is tied with the grin of a devil.

A Taste of Life

Helpless, empty before the onslaught
Hidden laughter turning ashen on dead lips
Remember to forget, but forget to remember
How the world tasted in the sun of yesterday.
Now the temple is silent, devoid of all light
The duel at dawn left behind a dusty street
Blood runs thicker than water, but it mixes
Well with lamp oil, set afire all the pages
Ashes to ashes, and fools dance with the dust
Voices call to me from where they once stood
But the road stretches out across bone yards
Filled with unmarked graves just waiting for
The stark mad corpses, pale and troubled
And still in love with my words, softly spoken.
My eyes burn with smoke and sweat, or
At least that's what I tell myself. I won't admit
My own defeat, and I'll never feel my tears.
Poison crawling on the skin, bones exposed to
Grasping branches, broken, scarred, and ever more
Bound beneath the thankless sun, go down
Behind the world, beneath the clouds,
Before the puppet master. Forge the stake
That breaks the spell, sharpen the pins
To stab the doll, milk white eyes remember
Youth and misery, blinding hate,
And the taste of this life of mine...

Cloying senses overwhelm, running through your mind,
Night descends, tied up, all you were, all you are, is mine.
Come lay with me, my dear sweet heart, remove the heavy burdens
On the wayside, sheltered ruins, drinking in the sweet.
Sweat collides, stain the core, descriptions lost in heat
Hunger sings with the beat, lost thoughts collide as one
An evening breeze cools the brow, tomorrow's deeds are set
Release the need for misery, come with me, my pet.
Lust will fill every pore, breath deep and join my dance.
Naked, stripped, and ever more wilt thou beneath me be,
Bound to me in symbiosis, tied tight with sympathy
Your flesh released of trappings, your dreams unbound to fly.
Join hands with me, remove the shell, move with me in silence
Strip down in the heat, disclose the mystery, succumb to your senses.
Lay back, recline, and give yourself to the thoughts within,
Remove your veils, loose your chains, lose them with your trappings
For I eat souls the gods forgot, and I prefer them with no dressings.

Fighting the Inevitable

Twisting catastrophic dreams
Beneath the silent waves of sleep
When all at once it's left to me
To me, to bring them all to peace.
But war is fraught with fire and glory
And smoke fills the minds of many
Before the twilight dawns so empty,
I'll not find rest till the sun is setting.
Before the time, before the serving,
Crumbling towers draw lines on sand
Dancing figures with broken machines
Bring about the darkness of man.
Like apparitions, naked in the fires
Suicides and falling empires
Bringing about the end to it all
But I am to stand before the waves
Destruction laying at my feet
Am I to stop this heartless consent?
And who will help me stand all night?
Charged with keeping alive the ruin
Bound to struggle against our whims
Trying to see the fitting end for it all,
And I forgot what it was I'm fighting.

Hammer Back

Red-hot scarring darkest steel
Left alone to cut and kneel
Broken windows, broken mind
The cold inside is the cold of mine
Blistered, bloodied, severed sight
No one's left, alone I fight
Shadows gather quickly sunder
Life will shatter with sounds of thunder
Hammer back and trembling hands
Listen for the fall of sands
Hour glass and demons fed
What's done is done and now I'm dead.

I wrote these both at the same time, so it is only fitting that I post them both at once.

So if you are thinking
To stretch out the inevitable
Remember who is conspiring
To bring about your downfall.
For I am but a sinner, unredeemed
By the vague shadows of people,
Ephemeral and fleeting.
The world is mine, I hold
The sands of man in my fist.
There is no escape, justice is
Just a word I use as an excuse
To bring you to your knees, weeping.
And I'll never quit.
