Lyrics

THE BLACK TRANCE

The particles collide.
The storm’s in stride.
The mouth of night
is charged and open wide.

There stands a man.
A stained-glass phantom.
He's locked away
in a softer state.

The hands that stab.
The hands that grab.
I'm caught beneath the weight.
I'm on your rooftop
singing songs.
I seek the unlocked gate.

The particles collide.
The storms in stride.
The mouth of night
Is charged and open wide.

With lungs of rain
the ghost finds tracks
and then perambulates upon
the windowpane.

The hands that stab.
The hands that grab.
I'm caught beneath the wait.
I'm on your rooftop
singing songs.
I seek the unlocked gate.

Night's breath sends home
bright, bolted bones.
Racing fingers of electric form.

Somnambulist.
(Caught in the black trance!)
Paralyzed.
(Deep in the black trance!)
Paralyzed
In never-dawn.
