lyrics

owl creek bridge - inquietude ep
by n.m. bell
(based on "an occurrence at owl creek bridge" by ambrose bierce)

you called alabama home
and the water swept below
while the ropes around your wrists sank to the bone
following the driftwood, your thoughts, they slip back home

the plank fell as your body dropped
your mind already grey
whether your nerves or biology, who could say?
the rope, now taut, rudely shakes your mind awake

for death is foaming white
but you lay grey as a ghost
your neurons dance with light
as you escape the pain
and so we all take flight when our lives come to an end
we lie until our eyes see once again

dodging bullets, stretching time
as your knuckles grasp the bank
body arisen as the sun sank
drying, running frantic, yet not a drop drank

your children's footsteps at the door
you feel your wife's embrace
the poison takes hold and your senses cringe with angst
it appears reality was with delusion laced

ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (x2)

for death is foaming white
but you lay grey as a ghost
your neurons dance with light
as you escape the pain
and so we all take flight when our lives come to an end
we lie until our eyes see

we lie until our eyes see once again
