​Seven Hells

This song is by Brown Bird and appears on the album Fits of Reason (2013).

The seven hells inside us impales and divides us
And scatters our skin with the seed
Of our deeds devoured, on other worlds showered
As our demon celestials bleed

The seventh heaven's promise, the Gospel of Thomas
The Shahadat's secrets are saved
As the dead and the sleeping still fear a flesh reaping
And gather their gold for the grave

In bonds of conscience respiration fails
Blind suffocation proceeds
Floodwaters swallowed, the proprium of whales
Shed these lung spires and breathe

Eyes end in flames and the brow settles
Sunk cheek to jaw
Lips forming shame and the mind's metal
Floods one and all

Laws of men lay claim to all those without shame
Who enlighten themselves with the lies
That our souls are bound to the deafening sounds
As the megaphones fill up the skies

In bonds of conscience respiration fails
Blind suffocation proceeds
By floodwaters swallowed, the proprium of whales
Shed these lung spires and breathe

Eyes end in flames and the brow settles
Sunk cheek to jaw
Lips forming shame and the mind's metal
Floods one and all

No sacred sound remains unscathed despite the fall
No shouting shafts of light are saved
No demon's peace prescribed for pain to one and all
No foul façade left saving face
