lyrics

Twisted Cord

Never been here, but so much of this feels known
All the patterns, I've seen them before with eyes closed
I only watched them for a minute
Came home, and a year had gone
Did you suffer, the same as we did
When you saw the twisted cord

Hovering over a difficult vision below
Dive into chaos or climb ever higher alone

When I'm wearing my mystical cloaking device
I love the freedom, but I'm still alone, excised
'Cause when I write words, no one reads them
When I talk, no one replies
Checked the mirror for my reflection
Still there, wondered if I'd died
Still there, wondered if I'd died

Hovering over a difficult vision below
Dive into chaos or climb ever higher alone
Hovering over a difficult vision below
Dive into chaos or climb ever higher alone

Feels like I'm dissolving but the world is taking shape
The picture says I'm wounded, but I'm dancing in a fevered state
Feels like I'm dissolving but the vision's getting clear
The painting shows my wounds, but I rise with every spear
Feels like I'm dissolving and the light is pouring in
The painting shows I'm wounded but I've only shed my skin
Feels like I'm dissolving and the dissonant takes shape
The picture says I'm wounded, but I'm dancing in a fevered state

Feels like I'm dissolving but the vision's getting clear
The painting shows my wounds, but I rise with every spear
Feels like I'm dissolving and the light is pouring in
The painting shows I'm wounded but I've only shed my skin
