lyrics

I saw a serpent
in a fever dream
coiled around a dagger
its eyes a ruby sheen
in the grim blackness
a bell began to toll
blaring in my mind
ever since I found a skull

I wandered vaults
of torch-lit cobblestone
slowly grasping
that I wasn't alone

Darkness at night
darkness by day
nightmares even as I lie
in bed awake

Visions of hell
urging me on
spurring me closer
toward a blood-soaked dawn

I felt a presence
in my fantasy
keeping to the shadows
yet mere steps behind me
I crept into the chamber
or jade lair of the snake
he smirked and disappeared
and left behind a blade

I wrapped my palm
around its ornate handle
when I woke up
it was in my hand still

Darkness at night
darkness by day
nightmares even as I lie
in bed awake

Visions of hell
urging me on
spurring me closer
toward a blood-soaked dawn

I was walking
home from work
through the woods
the day I found
the skull on the
path between the
creek and bluff
by some rocks
obscured by
amber leaves and
I stared at it and
sensed a change
grow within my brain
and I felt strange
and I picked it up
and stuffed it into
my briefcase and
then I was
on my way

I unearthed a skull
I unearthed a skull
I've unearthed a skull
and it wants your blood
on a blade

I want your blood
I want your blood
I want your
blood blood blood
on my blade

I want your blood
I want your blood
I want your
blood blood blood
on my blade
