Dyslexicon

Album: Noctourniquet (2012)
  • Nature red in tooth and claw
    I haven't seemed to keep my powder dry
    I always seem to hear it in your laughter

    The second that I fell in love
    With the handle of your revolver
    I always seem to hear it in your laughter

    I begged to you a second chance
    With dried white roads to Bethlehem
    I always seem to hear it in your laughter

    Am I the valency that you deny?

    In the time of the sixth sun
    We are cattle to the prod
    And I burn this dictionary
    Because its my dyslexicon

    When I collapse and bury all the things unconsciously I hear
    Cackling in chloroform this spectre will ensnare
    I always seem to hear it in your laughter

    A braided strand of children's manes
    Acquired with impunity
    I always seem to hear it in your laughter

    The things you say to me
    Are deaf in tongue
    I always seem to hear it in your laughter

    Am I the valency that you deny?

    In the time of the sixth sun
    We are cattle to the prod
    And I burn this dictionary
    Because its my dyslexicon

    You've never tasted heaven
    Stood the mother filled with grief
    In the wake of Monday morning
    Finds the seventh day

    If fate is your endearment
    Through pistil and through stem
    In the wake of Monday morning
    Finds the seventh day

    And on the seventh day
    You will come to find
    My prism is not colorblind
    In death's mosaic spirit
    Finds the seventh day

    That's why I repent
    That's why I go under
    That's why I repent for the night

    In the time of the sixth sun
    We are cattle to the prod
    And I burn this dictionary
    Because its my dyslexicon Writer/s: CEDRIC BIXLER, OMAR RODRIGUEZ
