lyrics

From my ancestors’ skull
I was born in the eye
In the rip and the wreck
Of the frost frozen sky

But the sun made a crust
Of the stones, boiled the bones
Through the thick molten rock
I emerged from my home


When the night’s full of flame
And when fire becomes my name
I can freeze, as I breathe
And I feel the ice again


And in anger my spirit
Sucked heat from the pyre
With a singed stabbing tongue
And a mind full of fire

As I looked to the heavens
The sky red and raw
How I longed to return
To my soul’s icy core


When the night’s full of flame
And when fire becomes my name
I can freeze, as I breathe
And I feel the ice again


This scratching fur from within
This rage is burning the skin
With bristles under the tongue
And howling heat from these lungs
What curse is buried beneath
These wild insatiable teeth
I'll catch the moon in these jaws
As hands are turning to claws


When the night’s full of flame
And when fire becomes my name
I can freeze, as I breathe
And I feel the ice again


Unbeaten, unbroken
Overlord of fear
Undermine oblivion
Other-throw the tear
Unearth me in moonlight
Over the frontier
I am near, I am near
I am here
