​Decay

This song is by Counterparts and appears on the album The Difference Between Hell And Home (2013).

The grave welcomes you with open arms
Last light escapes, last breath remains
Circling the body, brushing passed the skin and bone
It cradles you, your holy manger
Born into ruin, we feel withdrawal
Death is your procreator, your predecessor
From your decay grows a beautiful garden, The stalks caress your failure, and the petals bring you closer to eternity
Pray for your rebirth
Pray for your chance to bloom
The heart starts and stops, the mind disconnects
As flowers, we grace the earth with our presence
The tide rises and turns, and we simply expire
Over-saturated, our lungs fill with the essence of the universe
Until we feel the gentle kiss of dawn draw the water from our lungs, and we can breathe easy
Like night and day, we have never met
Aching for one another, we aim for congregation
You are my prey, you are the martyr
The blight takes it's toll and our bodies grow black
Wilted, we fade away
Rotted from the root, we exchange our stem for legs
We blossom into our bodies, and the process has been reset
