04. Breathing Blood

Son of the Morning
by Oh, Sleeper



 

Regaining consciousness under a swinging moon,
he speaks of alliances that beckoned me long before the womb.
Iíve caused more wounds than Iím worth. I see now, you must not have heard...
I am the natural born killer.
There is freedom past your history.
"This air wonít fill my lungs!"
Because you should be breathing blood.
See, this death, it was your victory so...
"Teach me to fill my lungs!" ...never stop breathing blood.
I had it all so very wrong, but I fought... I fought with only song.
God, Iíve tried... Iím trying like a beast all alone, but my words...
my words have aired in poison.
Please teach me how to breathe because this air keeps failing my need.
Fill my lungs with what wonít bleed from my enemies.
He said, "If death is victory how afraid of life can you be?"
Iím born a war machine not knowing which beckon to heed.
Will I rise as a tool for glory or be lost in dormancies?
Iíve regained consciousness under this swinging moon.
You filled my lungs and each breath heals this killerís wounds.
There is freedom past your history.
"But this air wonít fill my lungs!"
Because you should be breathing blood.
See, this death, it was your victory so...
"Teach me to fill my lungs!" ...never stop breathing blood.
I hear him speaking to me. For the first time he cleared my head... thatís when he said,
"Only cowards keep dormant their sleeping strength, and soon youíll find,
only the fearless will reach their potentialís peak."
(What will wing these words if even the air is poisoned?
If the air is poisoned, what will wing these words?)
"Tell me, if death is victory how afraid of life can we be?
If death is victory how afraid of life can we be?"
