With Twilight as My Guide

Album: Octahedron (2009)

  • I'm bolted from within
    From long conniving heights
    The hale, it makes a special sound
    That always stays into the night

    She tells me I'm not capable
    Of what they accuse me
    With no remorse I stand and say
    That guilt is what I plead

    My devil makes me dream
    Like no other mortal dreams
    With a blank eye corner

    The only way to see him
    In the tunnel where he slept
    By the longest tusk of corridors
    Numb below the neck

    In my heart

    Where he keeps them in
    A vault of devil daughters

    When I bend and kick in form
    With twilight as my guide
    In every home the ghost pays gossip
    You can hear them if you try

    When my quill begins to squirm
    From the ashes in your urn
    Your deviance is anything but faithful

    My devil makes me dream
    Like no other mortal dreams
    With a blank eye corner

    The only way to see him
    In the tunnel where he slept
    By the longest tusk of corridors
    Numb below the neck

    In my heart

    Where he keeps them in
    A vault of devil daughters

    Everybody
    In my dead leaves
    Don't you hide these
    Branches waiting

    I've been watching
    You four, two me
    Don't resign me
    I'm not waiting

    My devil makes me dream
    Like no other mortal dreams
    With a blank eye corner

    The only way to see him
    In the tunnel where he slept
    By the longest tusk of corridors
    Numb below the neck

    In my heart

    Where he keeps them in
    A vault of devil daughters Writer/s: CEDRIC BIXLER, OMAR RODRIGUEZ
