We four, bound by blood,
standing in the crossroads.
on the underside of the world,
waiting our turn.

Here we see, coiled serpent,
black and baking in the sun.

Stone is flung
Serpent wakens
Arrow of poison
pierces our hearts.

Teeth sink into tender flesh
Lightning strikes, too fast to see.

We seek succor for the stricken,
pleas met with spiteful laughs.
Slow advance, not to stir the poison
Its course fast and merciless.

Merciless, merciless...

In vast halls, buried in hurried hordes
No help found here, only dreadful tears...

    General CommentI have just updated these lyrics according to Isis, who published the official ones just recently...I've only uploaded these lyrics, so I can't fix the others.

    General Comment5:40 just puts me in my own personal heaven where i can drift along and not care about how mundane and draining life really is. i almost love this song as much threshold of transformation.
