YEAR OF THE SNAKE (Haliechuk)

My cold hand on your heart, when I broke apart
The world blurred I forgot every word

THE SUN SETS ON THE RIVER, A CANDLE DELIVERS
MY BODY TO HEAVEN, THE JOURNEY TO NEVER
ALONE IN THE DARKNESS, A PRAYER TO HELP FIND
THE LIGHT IN MY HEART AND THE PEACE IN MY MIND

OPEN UP MY HEART, LET ALL THE VENOM GO
TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW, LET ME HOLD IN THE SMOKE
I’M SO COLD, IT’S BEEN SUCH A LONG ROAD
MOTHER LET ME KNOW IS THERE BEAUTY IN MY SOUL?

Woke up as a child, saw myself from above
Build space in my heart, and fill it (back up) with love

BORN AS A LIAR AND COME BACK AS FIRE
LAY DOWN IN THE PYRE, KEEP LIFTING ME HIGHER
A SNAKE ON THE ALTAR, THE VINE FROM FOREVER
DISSOLVE INTO YOUR LIGHT, IN YOUR LOVE GRANDMOTHER

OPEN UP MY HEART, LET ALL THE VENOM GO
TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW, LET ME HOLD IN THE SMOKE
I’M SO COLD, IT’S BEEN SUCH A LONG ROAD
MOTHER LET ME KNOW/do you know, IS THERE BEAUTY IN MY SOUL?

Fall through life, as if i were blind
I cant see whats inside, or what i’m trying to hide
Show me whats in there, something i can use to care
So i can stop holding on, and stop being scared

Help me find, what my soul needs to survive
Stuck to the wheel of time, for a thousand lives
Is there something inside that I can use to find
Have you been here with me for this entire (fucking) time?

I feel so strange
Please help me to change

Pattern out, wake up cold
Never been so alone

Golden bells fill my mind
The holy vine that stops time

Purge out my pain
The snake fills my veins

Touch me, cradle my head
Come back for me when I’m dead

Give myself to the sky
That light, god smiles

Cast a candle to the river, hope it makes the other side
Keep the flame low, alight with a fire inside
Another life, another wick, lit time after time
Let me drown in the river and send my light into the sky
