From Pale Gloom's upcoming release...


With a string as thin as floss,
You pulled the hind legs of the rocking chair.
It mothered us, but doubt set in,
Too soothing of a rhythm.

Now I'm bitterly aware...

With a question in my throat,
Drowned out by a creaking drone.
You blamed the chair and hid your bones,
I saw them rattle up your sleeve.

Now I'm bitterly aware,
It was more trick than magic.
Now i'm bitterly aware,
It was more trick than magic.

A floating vision of youth
Drifting away.
As we moved forward than back,
In the same spot we swayed.

You're more trick than magic.
