Track Name: The Overwinter
Here we are, restless and blue
in our hearts, old consumed by new
Endless frozen white space, can’t breathe at all
the fiery serpent’s luminous veil
From above, restless and blue
in our hearts, old consumed by new
Endless frozen white space, can’t breathe at all
the fiery serpent’s luminous veil

Has your skin crystallized
crushing ancient ice, endless frozen white
glacial spire
talons of blood
where the eyes can see right in front of me
each beast eaten alive

We stand above, the beast below, with talons of blood
We stand above, the beast below, and defeated
Their carcasses were stretched on burning buildings

Your skin is weather like a photograph, use this mask
Your mouth is open it’ll never last, use this mask
Your skin is weather like a photograph, your mouth is open it’ll never last

Has your skin weathered beyond
the grass your graze and the space you keep
The distance you travel inside of yourself
if we can
distance ourselves from the sentimental reality
between our breathes
use this mask to refuse your supplements
