Haken

Puzzle Box

Haken
No escape
I navigate
Through my cave
Beneath the skin
They keep us in
Night and day
(Latent memories forming deep inside of me
Dormant barren visceral senses now subdued)

Parasite
Leech upon the guilt from all my wrongs
Lead me on the pathway to the
Paralyse
Staring through the shadows on the wall
Unable to solve this puzzle box

The journey's long
The shadows dance around
The answer lies beyond the fourth wall
My future days
Are etched into my skull
Hanging ever by a tethered
Body, mind and soul

Parasite
Leech upon the guilt from all my wrongs
Leave me on the pathway to the
Paralyse
Staring through the shadows on the wall
Unable to solve this puzzle box

Truth or deception
I lose all perception
Inside

A fleeting sense of self-worth (self-worth)
Evaporates into nothingness (nothingness)
A tepid grip on myself (myself)
Melts away into oblivion (oblivion)

(Shadows on the wall dance around
Reflections in the amber to be found
A puppet on a string soon unwound
The truth inside the cave soon to be unbound
The path beyond the mountain led me here
The answer crystallised in history
But now the cracks of time begin to show
We lift the veil on what the future holds
The torture of entrapment ever grows
And now I'm waiting for the afterglow
A beast inside of me awakening
Alas the consequences of my sins
Shadows on the wall dance around
Reflections in the amber to be found
A puppet on a string soon unwound
The truth inside the cave soon to be unbound)

(Parasites as thick as thieves
Paralyzed my golden wings)

Bouncing off the walls
Latent memories (erupting)
Pulling at the cord
Earth beneath my feet (is trembling)
Lightning cracks the sky
Wakening the beast (inside me)
Rawness in his eyes
Reeking stench of fear (and regret)

Bouncing off the walls
Latent memories (erupting)
Pulling at the cord
Earth beneath my feet (is trembling)
Lightning cracks the sky
'Wakening the beast (inside me)
Rawness in his eyes
Reeking stench of fear (and regret)

(Cause and consequence
Show me reverence
Fate or circumstance?
I feel severance
Lightning cracks the sky
Eyes intensify
I will stay trapped inside
Until the cells divide)

How can truth set us free when lies are all we have
How can time heal us when our days are running out

How can time heal us when our days are running out
