lyrics

wordlessly she collects her effects
she calls in her marks
she draws back the nets
she harvests every last bitter regret
all their days misspent

she hauls in her catch
with some dark left to burn
unsurprised that they never learn
a secret swims behind her eyes
perhaps a word for the wise

wearily rise the dispossessed
they bluster forth
they coalesce
they manifest their insanity
the bleak disease

they gust through the night
stirring up debris
they curse out the stars
for their misery
consumed by their infinite agony
aching for a reprieve

silently a finger drawn to her lips
she stares them down
they acquiesce
they've long since surrendered their liberty
their legacy

another eve and it begins
a desperate dance
without an end
rather than laying blame at her feet
they accept their defeat

they curse out your name
they curse their disease
don't take it too hard
darling Persephone
if there lies a fault
you're not the one to blame
they've squandered their time
it's theirs to carry that weight
