Marauder
Staining the soil, midst of stillness
Beloved fraternity to an end
Red eyes probe the scene

All the same
Stilted for the beholder
Depravity from the core
Handcarved death in stoneladen aisles

I hide the scars from my past
Yet they sense my (mute) dirge
This is when it all falls apart
White hands grasping for straws

Sly smile, poisoned glare behind
Undisguised manmade nova
Mute cry, don´t dare to tread
Searing beams tracking you down

Adoring what never has been
Some will bring with them all they have seen

Searching my way to perplexion
The gleam of her eyes
In that moment she knew

Thought I could not leave this place
On this imminent day
As I´ve reached the final dawn
To what´s gone astray

What would they care if I did stay
No-one would know
What would they care if I did stay
No-one should know

Still brooding, soothing clam
That rigid, twisted face
Blank godhead, tear my name
Lost virtue, frantic lust

Searching my way to perplexion
In crumbling faith I saw her
Bearing her pain in the wilderness
The gleam of her eyes
In that moment she knew

    General CommentGodhead's Lament is one of the greatist compositions I've heard. Still Life's seems to have literary contrastion such as:

    White hands grasping for straws

    or in White Cluster:

    They wear White for me.

    I belive the people want him dead because he is a African slave. Don't people usally wear black to hangings? Not unless a slave was caught with a young white woman.
