Lost Orison

from by Cardinal Wyrm



Where were we when the continents fell?
Where were we when the oceans swelled?

Were we lost and adrift, were we drowning then?
Were we safe, were we clinging to trinkets then?

The sea had its monsters adorned with our crowns,
Put our faith in the sky as its weight held us down

Keep us safe, keep us penned, keep us hollow men
This deal we have with the devil
Keep our gaze at our feet till we sleep again
Just because we’re able
There’s a hole deep within and it won’t relent
Deep blue sea in which we revel
There’s a sky up above, seas surround us then…
…ever caught in the middle.
