Transmutation of Flesh

from North American Birdsong by Headless Relatives



I nurse the embers, I stoke the flame
I am not going down this way
I run my hand through my dark hair
It’s getting pretty barren up there

I am not this
Fragile creature you see
It’s not me

I call up old friends to tell them my plan
To unleash the being I know I really am
Their words are kind but I won’t be deceived
Even well-meaning demons cannot be believed

I’ll be reborn
And I will blaze like the dawn
Show them they’re wrong

I check the figures, do one final round
As the minutes wind down
My equipment casts shadows on my bare walls
Encouraging me to answer the call

I will throw off
This useless machine
That hinders me
And I’ll fly free


from North American Birdsong, released April 21, 2018
