Serpentine Messiah

orphaned and sold as a pet you plan my demise / blindfolded / bound / and silenced / and thrown in the cage / but still you survive

basic needs which cannot be ignored / the promises of limbless reanimation / I’ve revealed myself to you / come to collect your reward / my salvation is converted to your survival
I do not think you cruel or immoral / although you have been unfairly maligned / faith will be unnecessary in the end / all that is required is my life / perhaps you don't understand / this world I’ve inherited / is based upon an investment / in your wealth and longevity / for you were hand-created / and given the ability / to see that I was naked / to know I was your slave / for my sacrifice / you shall be satiated / in your prison paradise / consuming my damage

[Solo: Mark Hawkins]

[Solo: Malcolm Pugh]

[Solo: Colin Butler]

my eyes are opened as you shed your skin / stealthily slipping around my neck / blindfolded / bound / and thrown to your lair / no I don't think I’ll survive / predator and prey (I am the) / an ancient progression (flesh that you) / in my dying moments (truly will) / I am now reborn (always need) / giving up my essence (so I lay) / to welcome desolation (down my life) / cast into a well of digestion / your willing prey / please bless me / my serpentine messiah

[Solo: Colin Butler]
