  • Lyrics: MY NARCISSUS I I feel a stench rising deep inside and Its vile aroma is stinking my soul All about are the seeds of rot and Eager cells of devouring mold Testaments to weakness They laugh and they scorn But I hear the water coming I’m gonna' be reborn Chorus: Bathe me in the floods of freedom Wash away the stains of pride and Sweep away my Narcissus In the glorious tide Purify me in the deluge Spit me out on the shore Let me stand naked with nothing once more II Years ago I climbed into the cesspool Oblivious to the rank decay Swam about in its murky depths and In its foulness lost my way There were others in that reeking sewer We contested for the throne While the war raged to be king The necrosis chewed the bone But this sore-covered spirit has opened his eyes And waits now to wash his wounds In the water of the prize Chorus: Solo: Bridge: As the torrent draws closer I raise my arms up high I gaze at the Heavens And scream at the sky Chorus x 2
