Hungry Lights
The Thorn That Split My Wheel
O' how my actions turned me to a snarling beast
The very essence of what I had left behind back in the churning ocean
The thorn that split my wheel was gnawing at my heel-side
When did I learn to wield those fangs?

I lost my mind, back in the sea
And the wondering still frustrates me
Of all the pawns my wrath could reap
It was one that hid forbidden shackles
They twisted in and coiled up my arms until they reached my rib-cage
My heart displayed a quickset bolt
-A lock for one who chose to compliment my rage

An albatross is soaring high
The one I had admired from before
Before my kettle boiled over
To envy, it’s not weighed down by my guilt
Easier to forgive than it is to forget
But my fate had come with a brother who's in ire
Will my revered burn as I walk the coals?
Where did I go wrong?
For you had paid for my misstep

I walk a path I cannot see
How the wandering does frustrate me
Revenge was sought and full of holes
I know it so, for I had felt that emptiness!
And you were gone, and so my tears
They fell so sweet
O' even autumn was pushed aside!
Was I the snake that ate its own tail?
A hungry light that did not think before it struck the fruit

Could I find you?
For in that corner, I chose to turn away
You couldn't stand me
The man that you had loved has died
I’ve gone away
O’ even if you called for me, I wouldn't change
I need a reason for peace in my mind
Alone, I would trace it all backwards
If a hand is tied, I’ll grow two more
How the loss of what glimmered can bring a lowly man back to height
My awry ascent of delusion?
I had dismissed it as a nightmare
I am not settled in the crotales for I’m not tuned for that score

Cut in between the lines of who I was and am now
My hands were soaked in blood
My hands are soaked in blood
The ink to draw the map to lead me back to your side
And there was nothing in the universe to keep me from you
There was nothing in the universe to keep from you

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie

Um...
So I approached it with caution
Watch my hands for the cue
And I'll show you that I can't ever miss
I reminisce of a time I didn't half-walk on a thread so fine
So connect the dots for me—one at a time
Until this picture's clear
‘Cause I'm unsure if I can find where I lay in the design
Cut in-between the lines of who I was and am now
My hands were soaked in blood
My hands are soaked in blood!
The ink to draw the map to lead me back to your side
And there was nothing in the universe to keep me from you
There was nothing in the universe to keep me from you!
