lyrics

I’ve lived this life many times before with you
the pain I’ll inescapably summon
waiting in the void, I dream of you
I’m dust, I’m debris, I’m destruction
dust, decay, I’m destruction
don’t let me hold you, don’t you see that I always drop you, my love
you thought I was docile, that’s just the millennia of fatigue
The Cleft Serpent, at your service

Surveying the battlefield, I just walk away
you’re dying in the dust, eyes on the wheel of the milky way
I break him, I break him, you humans are too fragile
you thought you could trust me, you really shouldn’t trust me
you thought you could trust me, you really shouldn’t trust me

I know the pain I’m fated to inflict
I know the pain I’m fated to inflict
