the faint hum of slime in the distance
a group of soldiers with inherited sickness
coughing and holding onto their
written instructions
handed down from the peak of a mountain
where snow freezes the obedient servant
they follow our every step
a tidal wave from unknown waters

father might wonder why we left in such a hurry
no, he will not
look at the ants they walk on
two by two
we must do as them
we must keep moving on
as we walk through windless deserts
we hear the thoughts of a beggar
"i realize true fears have not arrived."

switching faces
they form a unified creature
with no projection of a singular leader
cut from space and time
air seeps out midnight blood
ready to make a move as ominous murder
no dimension exists
but they push further
they push further
they push further

he might forget us if we stay out any longer
vultures will pick at us and grin then laugh
like savage kings
we must hide from them
we must keep moving on
as i crawl and latch on nervous fingers
behind a rock
a thought lingers
i realize true fears have not arrived

we have not arrived to the place where you will die

until his dying days
he'll question both our motives
venomous clouds have formed
a toxic, swirling, black abyss
i must stay in place
you must keep moving on
as we cup our ears and move closer
an echoed voice caught under the thunder tells us
you'll realize true fears have not arrived

    General CommentThis song is perfection, I haven't heard a song I didn't like from I Am the Dot yet. I think this is about the fact that the fear of dying is our greatest fear.
