On how to wake the stone [2015 EP]

from by CULTRO



"On how to wake the stone" is the third and last of the three tracks of the CULTRO EP, released during November 2015.


Hold onto a lie
for truth is a blade
and blood on the soil
marks out the way
pray onto a prey
tomorrow and today
one step behind
and stare far away

one step behind
and gaze far away

the fall is in sight
touch me, am i breathing?
the toll of the blight
touch me, am i breathing?

they're all in a lie
the sevens befogged thy eyes

(burning the men of straw,
burnt in the holy way)

tolling high
the bell of
a shapeless husk

(you live on a heart of straw,
burns fast and then fades away)

mute as the mud
concealed by silence
the last fo the veil
of a god
who forgot himself

intone the lie
stab me and watch me die

bond by the night
relieved by sleeping
once was the light
then darkness became our day
