The Underworld

This song is by Cartilage and appears on the split album Ex Oblivione / The Fragile Concept of Affection (1992) by Altar and Cartilage.

Reflection of a long rotten
Distorted soulless harmony
A vision that is best forgotten
Moribund to misery

Sacred rites in soulfrost - decrying of my innermost
Harvest on the emotional field - barren and dehumanized
Cultivated profanity - ideal soil desolate
Bleeding myriad demi-beings - outliving death

Drag me to my knees screaming
A dirge for my weeping soul
The Underworld, devoid of believing
Lower divinities died unwhole

The spine of time lies scattered
Shattered on my molten wings
Black soul's dawn twilight death
Just ashes on my unclean breath

A spiral stairway, descend into gray
Mortality passed into decay
Religious path leads astray... away

Trapping for infernal soul
The privacy of my Hell
Illusion from a bunted mind's imagination
Reminder of our sins
Meets me with a smile

Bleeding eyes of the infant Christ
Bloody tears stigmatized my fears
The falling was pushed, into the muddily ground
To the Netherworld, where dawning souls...
Drown

Broken, Line
Between life and death divine
Deceased, stillborn
To a new beginning, I go...
False, temptation
Towards the Underworld I'm drawn

Reflection of a long rotten
Distorted soulless harmony
A vision that is best forgotten
Moribund to misery
