lyrics

Heccaatomb Womb

My judgment is fierce, but my wrath is bewildering.
The winds may turn mountains to dust,
but I devour them in volcanic fury.
As aeonic storms create suns, I destroy them –
like blowing out candles on a birthday cake,
make a wish.
On this day you were forged in my firmament:
The Heccatomb Womb.
Archaeopteryx, the obelisk on which you teeter was constructed using the
bones and blood of sacrificed gods.
Carrion lines your path, rotting and infested, but the trees bare ripe fruit, and you eat.
Your teeth tear at flesh, but your wings yearn for fleshlessness.
The Heavens await your offering -
Suck the sweet marrow.
Rip and rape and rend.
Fuck a hole in the fabric of time.
Accelerate the end.
Only wilted flowers have a chance at new life.
Tear at the throat of the lamb.
Waves crash against the cliff face.
Lightening sets the forest aflame.
Beneath the trees, the wind whispers the children to sleep, and as they dream their incarnate dream, the roots spread around them, entwining with their supple flesh – tucking them in under a blanket of vines.
Green shoots from pores. Wooden combs for the cherubs fair hair. Spectra blooms from eyelids, and seeds spurt forth from their mouths with each tiny breath.
My judgment is fierce, but my wrath is bewildering.
The winds may turn mountains to dust,
but I devour them in volcanic fury.
