Awaken from the bliss of sleep
The daybreak haunts you in such a subtle light
I hear them, they tell me these roads we have travelled fork up beyond the bend
Beneath the flutter of desperate wings they sing a song of reclamation
Where tomorrow's hanging horizon interrupts the hum of electrical towers
Here - there are the shallow graves
The shallower romances
And the shallowest of words still to be spoken
And there you are with open ears
Locust reign on your parade

    General Commentyet another example of beautifully penned poetry that is rendered totally indecipherable by the merciless brutality of converge. and also like many other converge songs, it deals with the times when love and hate aren't so very different... at least that's it to me: an imminent separation or breakup and how it makes you feel about the other party, for better or for worse.

    General CommentI love this song. It's one of my all time favorite albums. Unfortunately, the rest of the album is mediocre to poor. I'm not a huge fan of Agoraphobic Nosebleed and the other Converge songs just didn't do it for me. Thank god Jane Doe followed in the footsteps of this song and not the rest of them!

    General CommentAmazing song. I prefer the live version from Petitioning the Empty Sky just because you can really hear the sick freaking scream right at the start better.
