Mastodon – Eyes Of Serpents Lyrics

Mastodon Eyes Of Serpents Lyrics

All eyes forward
See what’s to be done
Calloused as I am becoming
Less and less of my own
If I burn the bridges
Leaving the ash behind
There’s no choice but to move on

Within a heartbeat the dream is dead
All that I have sacrificed is leaving me and letting go now
I don’t want to leave you here alone among the wind and weeping

Circles I’ve broken
Once, they seemed so clear
Leaving the past I buried
Deep in yesteryear

This will bring back memories
That I don’t want anymore
Always see reminders
And now I close the door

The illusion’s gone, the end is here

All that I have sacrificed is leaving me and letting go now
I don’t want to leave you here alone among the wind and weeping
If I could crawl beneath the earth and settle with the worms and dirt
I’d steal the eyes of serpents soothing powers from the deep blue sea

Is this just our fortune or unexpected fate?
A betterment for all

The trials we made are troubling, they smother me
Lay me bare to dry

Begging me to call it quits and go for broke
Bury me as I fall

To treat you as a part of me, it hollows you
The story has to fold
