The Atlas Fire

from Memento Mori by ddb



When I awoke, I was covered in flames.
Burning like a piece of paper.
All my mouth was dropped out.
all my friends were gone now
What god was this in the name of?

Walking out to meet you.
Trying to believe the view.
I am a ghost amongst the ashes

the sky asleep and dead
Haze crawling the ground, the bones and the heads
have all the cars been in crashes?

So I try to read it to you
the book of mine is closed from your view
it’s so natural and tragic

Then I continue to walk
maybe one day I can talk
what do you think that chance is?

I walk into the desert dunes to see if I can find him
like Jesus Christ, or anyone who’s sacrificed, or lost
I’m in the dictionary, an opus, an obituary, I’m trying to get across
Sage burning in mouth, and I’m dying in my house and I’m reborn into the chaos stream
