Forgiving Grin - Lyrics

feral dawn rouse us
embrace, embrace us
bear the grudging cold
hold us fear! and keep us!

faces blank with pale clay
blacken the teeth with char
fill the sockets nose and brow
tar and hinder lights stay

climb the roost and ask for feathers
their clever eyes watch as we gather

ever watching

discarded down with which we dress
as auguries of menace

the trees act defiant

we bless the trunks to take our stride
for they will carry our light feet

to where we bathe in blood

The ice obeys the periphery
macilent shards the trees entwine

they goad the yawning dark
we climb high, on forgiving limb
scent of sap and pine enfold
we are silent like rasps of breath

the sure sway of withered bough
take us high and crack the roof
the sky present tense of white
eclipse the unbearable weight
of what lies ahead

we bridge the canopy with
grace and silent gall
the forest hushed so that we may
seek out our undoing

what foulness breathes the liquid
through sunken teeth in skin
what dares cheat the
urgent anima within

the white of villain eyes

their foul mark with ember wreath
we hang like Tytons taloned frown

drool our hollow maws

above their raucous voices
we drop like Chiroptera and fly!

tenebrous shadows collapse
sever lifes umbilical

Spoken word (In English from Spanish)

"what on earth is manifest?
broth of dread
so many arms, so many mouths
brandishing profanities
wreaking havoc wounds
low and cunning in their language
begot of living bone and brawn
judge the cruel division"

descend! brave emaciate
consume their swollen bodies with
the death they covet so vigorous
quick tongues deliver us!

descend! brave emaciate
consume their swollen bodies with
the death they covet so vigorous
quick tongues deliver us!

the yelp of gracious fur
the giving grace of kin
following the step intimate
of far older eidolon

we do not know their faces
they hold a vacant appetite
they wear their hunger
like we hold our chaste

in all our world there is no sore
like the bray of maddening
and we are lain empowered
in their sad unmaking

and we live forever
in the forgiving grin
