​Spirit In A Vacuum

This song is by Mortiis and appears on the album The Smell Of Rain (2001).

Mental Maelstrom beckons me,
To fall into the core.
The Centre of the universe,
Mocks me forevermore.

Who awoke the engine when I could not its key?
Who landed me upon this place,
This island in the sea?

(There's) four or five thousand clouds,
All inside my head.
I'm looking for the mind I had,
How long has it been dead?

Eighteen thousand Million years,
With Aeons in between.
Cannot save me from my fears,
Of things I might have seen.

What did you see?
Who did you see?

Don't want to go back to that place.
Don't want to go back to my soul.
My spirit in a vacuum. Spirit in a vacuum.
My spirit in a vacuum.

Mental Maelstrom, that is you.
You've killed my inner sun.
The sacrifices that I made,
I want them all undone.

You put the engine back to sleep,
When I thougth I'd found the key.
Now that I am stranded here,
You return to Misery.

How can I kill the alien mind,
That tries to be me'
I've seen the vacuums eye,
And now I see the thing that I be.

Don't want to go back to that place.
Don't want to go back to my soul.

Spirit in a vacuum.
My spirit in a vacuum.
