Carrion to Your Crow

from Nightmare Realm by Headless Relatives



The match is struck
Sparks start to roam
But I’m not the one
Who brought the blaze home

Chained to a rock
Of my own devising
As the sun looms
Over the jagged horizon

I can’t tell you no
I’ll be the carrion
To your crow

Buried in the dry husks
Of promises I’ve neglected
When I look in the mirror
I don’t like what I see reflected

Festering fear
Self doubt and self pity
Parasites slowly
Sapping the life out of me

But I’ll let it all go
And be the carrion
To your crow

Grasped by your talons
Borne into the sky
I pick out the spot
Where I’m going to die

Give myself over
To your ministrations
When my blood spills
Please take it as a holy libation

I may flinch at the blow
But I’ll be the carrion
To your crow

Dropped from the heavens
Dashed on the rocks
Numb to sensation
Broken body in shock

Don’t let me be a straw man
Useless and rotten
Let me be consumed
And then let me be forgotten

Let the sun bleach my bones
Assemble them for your throne
I’ll no longer be alone
When I’m the carrion
To your crow


from Nightmare Realm, released November 4, 2022
