Handbook For The Powerless

Dogma Dance

Relative

Quiet

Glory Hole

Road to Success

Subterfuge

 

SUBTERFUGE


Peeling back layers

In abject horror

I hit my knees

To stave off disease


The glimpse that I caught 

When I peered Inside

Was more than enough...

More than enough


Mother, don't look at me

Mother, just look away

I'm not who you once thought I was

Mother, look away


The priest has fled

The temple burns

Again…Diminishing returns

I cannot reach it

I cannot taste it


As before, I am what I abhor

Refill me 

With the light I owned


Seeking out dragon holes

Ignorant bliss

I soiled the shroud

With poppies and piss


The ditches I dig

To fill this hole

...Never enough

...Never enough


Ghost ship has sailed

The pilot burns

Again…Diminishing returns

I cannot reach it

I cannot taste it

As before, I am what I abhor

Refill me

With the light I owned
