Track Name: Lacerus
the beast says, "i am but a messenger, a path unto yourself.
but i bet, no i suspect that in the the garden you would forget
that the wolf in you could rest.
all your fears will rise at dawn."

she said, "i am but a troubled passenger, don't trust me.
i am just your murderer. i was here to bring you back from the dead...
but we rose Lacerus instead.
you_have suffered a blow to the head."

i see your bet, i'll raise your voice.
i've said too much, you were meant to die.
tooth and knee, you're on your feet.
simply breathe, disappear, then repeat.

break me into the breeze and cry...
now exhale.
the dead should only sigh.
