The Shunned Ones

lyrics

The congregants lie in their self-same, pine homes. Lined up in tidy rows in the worm-eaten loam. Softened eyes stare unblinking at rotten satin overhead. Arms lay at their sides on their final beds. They have been forgotten. They have been left behind by the one they held sacred and the one whom they maligned. Locked in those bodies that spoil and swell. Planted like sterile seeds in the dirt. Confined in their cells. To be eaten by those worms. To liquefy into the ground, but never to climb out. In those sad graves, forever bound. They have been forgotten. They have been left behind by the one they held sacred and the one whom they maligned. You can dig them up but still they won’t rise. You can burn them up but they won’t escape with the smoke into the sky. No, they have been forgotten. They have been left behind by the one they held sacred and the one whom they maligned.
