The Carrion

This song is by 16 Volt and appears on the album Beating Dead Horses (2011).

A million miles from anyone, a million miles away,
I am alone, the carrion, the animal decayed
I'm like a solan plunging into the darkest depths of the sea
I'm shrouded out by soft grey ash - all of it made up by me

Freezing and burning I'm falling and turning, rushing and twirling, stirring, converting
Slowly unfurling, I'm constantly swerving - slumbering down without any preserving
Overly nerving, abstracting, differing, I'm only reacting to what I'm deserving
The carrion

Looked down upon by a million dead stars hanging above and between
Tiny veils of filmy light, darkened and jilted by sheen
Forsaken highs where I once thrived, clouded and hard to perceive
It's hard to untie and I won't deny all of it's made up by me

Ashes rain down from the sky
Choking out all of the life

The world versus me
