lyrics

Inanna, walk with me
Through this valley of sleep
May the moon, which hangs overhead
Light my every step

Ereshkigal, great Queen of the Earth
Who looks over the dead
May your gates be open to me
That I may find some rest

"There is a curse, which perches upon my shoulders.
I can hear it's beak clacking as it picks at my ears.
It's talons tear into my flesh, but my blood is cold and as it soaks through my clothes,
It watches as I drink deep from this river, and laughs as the water turns to piss in my mouth.

Food turns to ash as I chew it and pleasure tears at me from the inside.
The touch of another scorches against my skin.
Knowledge burns a hole into my mind and grants me visions of things to come.
And music grates against my ears, as a high pitched wail of doom."

Only the ending is assured
And death's sweet embrace

Inanna, walk with me
Through this valley of sleep
May the moon, which hangs overhead
Light my every step

Ereshkigal, great Queen of the Earth
Who looks over the dead
May your gates be open to me
That I may find some rest

Corrupt and withdrawn
I break away from this
Slowly adorned
There's no return from this

An eye for an eye
Tooth for tooth
Scattered
Lost in truth

Drawn to the dark
There is a hole in my heart

And only the ending is assured
With death's sweet embrace

Inanna, step with me
In this valley of sleep
May the moon, ever overhead
Light my every step

Ereshkigal, great Queen of Death
Who seeks to claim my head
Are your gates open to me
So I can find some rest
