lyrics

I took fire to my mother
Juggling burning coals of black
Through the iron of my bed cell;
It was the price to break my chains ....

Amidst the ire of every orphan
Lies a solo thread of silk,
A corridor for a skilled tailor
to mend a phoenix out of filth....

Vodka's Serpent is who raised me,
Her poisoned fangs kept me trapped
in a 4x4 compartment,
Hissing as my body I did hack.

Now I'm back to seek the pieces,
I pick up fragments here and there,
One day I'll put them all together,
My patch-work body she'll revere.

Uncle Jeff holds a secret,
Shadows only he can see,
Poured in drinks throughout the Boehnleins,
Ills in our geneaology.

I'll a hand mirror as my compass,
I'll hurl red to set them free
Once I hunt down every demon,
Every sickness plaguing me.

Vodka's Serpent is who raised me,
Her poisoned fangs kept me trapped
in a 4x4 compartment,
Hissing as my body I did hack.

Now I'm back to seek the pieces,
I pick up fragments here and there,
One day I'll put them all together,
My patch-work body she'll revere.
