lyrics

Descending deeper than hell
The panic of my heartbeat
Echoes through the abyss
Unconscious spell
My lungs are filling fast
As I'm sinking

The blackness is complete
This nautical nightmare
By the churning waves
Sent into the deep
These broken bones won't
Keep me from drowning

I'm sinking leagues
Beneath the surface
Death calls for my soul

Dark liquid spills
My pulse it stills
Breath takes its last toll

Water fills your lungs
Wrenching twisting rungs
Pressure burst your eyes
Pray for your demise

Fingers falling numb
Pray for death to come
Blood awakes the breed
Mother come to feed

I swim with stars in the sky
Eternal rest a delusion
Awake inside the gaze of
Countless beady red eyes
Sinister creatures approach
And I'm helpless

The water begins to boil
A squirming lure is enticing
To the shadows
Now I feel a tentacle coil
It slips around my throat
And I'm bloodmeal

I'm sinking leagues
Beneath the surface
Death calls for my soul

Translucent skin
Glowing veins within
Flesh drips off its bones

Water fills your lungs
Wrenching twisting rungs
Blood awakes the breed
Mother come to feed

I, the worm
Hang from the gallows
I, the worm
With hook through my marrow
I, the worm
Succumb to the horror
Drowning in death
Stygian explorer

Cleaving the flesh from my bones
Frenzied feeding begins
I am their fodder
Thousands of the starving drones
Arriving at the scene
Of my slaughter

In the darkness light burns
A fading ember escapes
As my life ends
Creatures devouring the light
I'm dead, I'm gone, I'm bloodmeal

Descending beyond hell
Water fills your lungs
Pray for your demise

I'm dead
I'm gone
I'm bloodmeal

about

Netherward Edmonton, Alberta

"The universe is not bound by any such limited concepts as up and down or forward and backward; for only the great shadow of entropy endlessly stretches its black tendrils in any semblance of a direction. When the void is gapped and Andromeda suckles at the teat of the Milky Way there will only be netherward." ... more
