Strangely humming above the grave




So hot above the vapors
We see electric meaning over the towers
I reach! The evil has fled
Strangely vaporous before the trees
We taste dream-like tentacles above the vapors
Whoa! The heat is vanishing
Strangely humming above the grave
We excrete vaporous sirens among the dream
We Reach! The lust will die
scared defiant
a long way from home
a sense of danger
With what hopes
my friend
seek the road back
and never catch up
