Track Name: To Traverse a Descent
with puzzling care
I study these walls
while the shouts from outside
form the paintings
of halls

lower lower

a creak, a cloud of debris
seeping through the cracks
the light (it reaches me)
Please grant me flight
to overtake parallax

with puzzling care
He studies this floor
this lowering platform
a falling door

A rumble a roar
Earth’s gaping mouth
ingesting yore
Liberté, Égalité, Éthéré
once more
Track Name: En Route Horizon
let paint dry
this canvas the map out
wet strokes, the veins in my body

collect the flakes
to piece together
the journey and our destination
before breaking this tether
escaping the nether

let this shining beacon guide
and light this vast plain
burn away the rot
and make way for
my mind's plot

a horizon
in pulsating cleansing flames
scorch its crown
blow your trumpets
tear its walls down
and let us enter Canaan.
