Sacred Words I

from The Lost Grimoire by Headless Relatives



Recite the tired phrases
You learned when you were younger
Until the sounds all blend into a drone
Let familiar phonemes
Work their magic
There's something lurking just behind the mantras you intone

See the people press around
Waiting for a breakthrough
But don't let their excitement break your trance
If you just keep repeating
The sacred words they gave you
Eventually they'll twist and writhe in a mystic dance

And when the dam breaks
You'll hear people cheer
But they won't understand what really happened here


from The Lost Grimoire, released November 23, 2018
