Like achellius crying by the sea
dark clouds fall on ships
steal you from my dreams
Shadows fall off of a spear of time
Stab my sight
My prize disappears from the night
Even Zeus didn't know what to do
When a thunder bolted girl lit up his view

I've forged my own demise
An Olympian battle vs my mind
Misfired shot
I cause my own loss
and ricochet off away

A catalog of ships
Meaningless marches
Anchors my head down
To sounds of your voice
when you sing
I shatter like a butterfly wing
shot by an arrow
falling from Apollo's hand
Burst into pixelated dust
If you're the ocean
I can see myself on your surface
We're dancing reflections
Drowning mighty echoing movements
I bring myself down
Summon serpents
fang my wrists
statued on the desert floor
I'm monumented in this chisel of time
when our devine diamond eyed lives
repeat like a scratch on a record
