Lyrics

The buzzing in the tips of my fingers
And the tickling in my tongue
The streaks of lightning beneath my eyelids
And vibrations in my lungs
The swollen bumps that throb and pulsate
And seep fluids down my face
The woven threads that conceal the larva  
That live only to debase 
 
They let me know there will be no resting
They let me know they will never cease
They let me know that they’ve started nesting
They let me know there will be no peace
 
Earth is coming back for me
Honeycomb and silk are all I see
Earth is coming back through me
What once was me is hollow
I don’t belong to me
I don’t belong to me
 
Diseased worms wriggle from my fingers
Squirming bumps beneath the skin
All the sores chewed into my eyelids
And the botflies held within
They let me know that they’re now ingesting
All the nutrients meant for me
They let me know that they’re manifesting
And taking over inside of me
 
Earth is coming back for me
Honeycomb and silk are all I see
Earth is coming back through me
What once was me is hollow
I don’t belong to me
I don’t belong to me
