Chasing Shades

The world is my nameless vessel
and they say an unnamed vessel is cursed
My curse is that I touched perfection
too good to be true
my gorgeous tragedy
Abruptly I have torn myself away from her
still cursing that very moment
And the sky, she weighs on me
She waits for me
as the thick air trembles

I am chasing the shades
since firebirds are no more
I am the son of ten, so don't deny me

Unbearable heat
I am fire to be lit
I am the son of ten, so don't deny me

and now they need
to extinguish me
I am the son of ten, so don't deny me

You know what they say about hope:
it's denial of reality
I am the son of ten, so don't deny me

How often does my brimstone self
keep cursing you and me
I am the son of ten, so don't deny me.

I am chasing the firebirds
since shades are no more
My father burns the flame of ten, you can't deny me

Rising halo, burn me now
Scrape my sky
Whipe away all that I left behind

Tear me open, shred my skin
Let me be
One of ten sons, burn me now

The eyes I've seen
will never be the same
A world beyond my
my lobotized brain
Leave me drowning
in this vivid flame
The faith I'm given
always was the same
