A Mouldering Heart

from by Sons of Perdition

lyrics

Those eyes, a pair of hunters’ lamps fixated on their prey. Those lips, an oily hunter’s trap that hints of warm decay. Hair that sings of forest floor, of heavy, darksome loam. Skin as pale as foreign moons and turgid river foam. A heavy heart collapses under its own weight and goes black. Pallid flesh as of a worm that feasts within a log. A drowning cry that’s calling out from deep within a heavy fog. That mouth a bloody, crimson wound that howls into the gloom. Like a sickly spider on a web, she ties her veins into a noose. A heavy heart collapses under its own weight and goes black.
