from The Phaneron by Animus Complex



You’re giving all you can
The chalice slowly slips from your hand
Father, death has persistence
Mother, it knows your name
Brother, surrender is not defeat
Sister, assimilation begins
Always running from existence
I’ll pretend I didn’t see it
Lemme hang for just a little while
I’m afraid of what’s behind closed doors
They told me it would be different...
Permanence of Death
Standing at the precipice...
They told me it would be different!
Nothing’s what it seems
There’s always deeper meaning
Hidden within the deepest chasm
There is a point of origin
Eat, drink and be merry, (for tomorrow we die)
Eat, drink and be merry
Now is the time to say what you mean
Commit to the life that you want to lead
There’s no more running from your greatest fear
