The Aftermath (Of This Unfortunate Event)

from by The Black Atlantic



The Flooded Road (Built on Sand)

Collision complete
The sun became the moon
Stygian clouds,
A fair match for the inside

I don't have to accept what I am
I can drown him anytime

Breath ripe
With horizon fire
The flooded road
Of fleeting desire

Our hope is built on sand
With a different base (basis) in fact

She waits for me there
Clutching a child
Love was lost in the ferns
And rekindled on the slopes

Our hope is built on sand
I don't have to accept what I am
