Valley of Lead

1.
Cold wandering Dust that obscures my eyes No reaching for the walls that can't hold me up The wind blows through my fingers Nothing but the road ahead They say one step is all it takes But I've walked for as long as I know An endless chill that grips me Invisible hands that clutch my throat Desperation need not end me So why do I follow to the void? Imprison me Lead me to the edge Say no prayers for me Then leave me in the wastes In the valley of lead Imprison me Safe among the strays No words are said for me I crawl amongst the shunned In the valley of lead Graying skies overhead A sign from the masters The stars are hiding nothing And they don't shine here anyway The words drawn out in spells For our sorrows laid to rest The facade that we still exist An endless thought that consumes me Invisible hands that hold me down Desperation need not end me So why do I lead them to the void? Imprison me Lead me to the edge Say no prayers for me Then leave me in the wastes In the valley of lead Imprison me Safe among the strays No words are said for me I crawl amongst the shunned In the valley of lead Captured Motionless Diseased in the place where hopes die Can't bury me Where the earth won't move The desert wind Will carry me away Carry me away

Casualty 04:29
You can't leave a stone unturned in time The empty grave you've dug will haunt you The place you go to when you close your eyes A cog in your perdition left unknown Left unknown Staring from the black No words can obscure what must be done The fiction holds the false in liberation Malevolent thoughts will seize upon the weak This is how we burn through to be men To be men Abomination Casualties Legacy Destiny Cruelty Death's head to weep No joy in hollow tears We shed them where we hang our heads We've given to the sinking Now they'll bear the weight Show their fabled wounds, laugh when backs are turned No conceived mistake In the end they'll bare for us all Cold gaze Hands not made to hurt Cold gaze Souls not made to burn Cold gaze Cross not made to bear Cold gaze Set afire where you stand Cold gaze Hands not made to hurt Cold gaze Souls not made to burn Cold gaze Cross not made to bear Cold gaze Set afire where you stand Where you burn Where you stand

The pathetic sight of your sunken eyes The angular lines of your hips and waist The light and the dark Of your vallied ribs The skeletal draw Of your temples and cheeks Your breath but a wisp From your string thin lips The acrid stink of your face and mouth Unsound unsure...your shaky legs Just when you're about to Learn to smile again I'm going to be the one to Teach you how to cry
