#1
I Am torn by the security of my home
and marched off to the king of terrors.

But when it is from its spot,
that place disowns me and says, "I never saw you".

You have shaken the land and torn it open,
mend its fractures, for its quaking.

Show your people desperate times
you have given us wine that makes us stagger.

There the wicked cease from turmoil,
and there the weary are at rest.

I see who you are and who else can compare
I meant what I said.

Gored by teeth.
Flogged by flesh.
A splintering mind.
A shattering skull.
The words become redefined...

From here to eternity we begin understanding.

One slip opens wounds and words utter pain
You've hid your failures as long as you recall.

Dying inside a dead planet.

He springs up like a flower and withers away
like a fleeting shadow, he does not endure.

Fix your eye on such a one?
Bitter judgment
A slip of the tongue.

Like breath
Scattering Shadow.
An endless endeavor.

My days have passed, my plans are broken,
and so are the scarlet desires of my heart.

All was well with me, but he shattered me;
he seized me by the neck and crushed me.
He has made me his target.

his archers surround me.
without pity, he pierces my kidneys
and spills my shame upon the earth.

Again and again he bursts upon me;
he rushes at me like a warrior.

Bury my brow in the dust.

A fortune made by a lying tongue
a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare
What will you do if you havn't come prepared?

They sharpen their tongues like swords
and aim their words like deadly arrows.

As iron sharpens iron.
I lie among ravenous beasts
men whose teeth are arrows
and flesh are spears.

Gored by teeth.
Flogged by flesh.

An Endless Endeavor.
