The morning roars
a beast waiting outside
The morning roars
and there's dread in the sunrise
The night before the only words I prayed,
"Don't wake me up"
For one hundred more the only words I'll pray,
"Don't wake me up"

Morning roars
The firmament swells
tearing itself
one heaving breath
taken til death
Morning roars
The mummified wake
from alkaline lakes
feel ruining time
see cruelty of light

I pull my sheets wrapped as bandages
from my skin
Rise from my bed as the grave that I buried
myself in
The morning roars
