Lyric "Embers"

[Chorus]

Imagine the burning embers
They glow below and above
Your sins you won't remember
And all you'll find there is love

[Verse 1]

I'm cloaked in smoke but feel no flames
Folks float around me but I see no wings
No halos or hounds, pitchforks or gates
Or omnipotent voice that picks course or fate
To the life of indecision build a dreamscape prison
Where light isn't manufactured but captured inside a prism
In a state between asleep and awake
Feels closest to hypnosis where the infinite wait
Then the fog dissipates revealing crimson fields
Quick ? by a fawn with flaming heels
Eyes red as stop signs and a mane of quills
As it gaze past hills of diamond trees
I see a silhouette rest upon golden knees
For the body of a goddess and a face of dreams
A half-naked ? good in a pagan hood
Kiss me on the cheek, we didn't speak but I understood
It wasn't Heaven that I was seeking but a haven I sought
A canvas of the mind painted with my thoughts

[Chorus]

Imagine the burning embers
They glow below and above
Your sins you won't remember
And all you'll find there is love

[Verse 2]

Everything ain't what it seems
I wake up to find I'm inside of a dream inside of a dream
See buried deep beside the seams of my screams
Of beings and otherworldly things rarely seen
Might be psychosis or maybe I chose this
The night approaches every time the eye closes
I see a burning bush, feel like I'm Moses
Burn so much kush I feel like amosis
All my images are morgues and wounds
And every fork in the road moves through Freud and Jung
In the darkness no orchard blooms
A state so dark, sparks from the torch is consumed
It's like I live in a fortress of doom
In the forest where the blood pores were forced from my wounds
My body aches from this lobotomy, a part of me shakes
Open my eyes, I'm awake, awake

[Outro]

Ashes are burning brightly
The smoke can be seen from afar
So now you're seeing how far
Ashes are burning the way
