Nine Years

lyrics

Trees split in Lion’s teeth.
He picked all the splinters free only to be sent back into the thick with a crack of the whip and another dead link added to his chains.

Nine years too heavy.
Nine years: too much to care.
Nine years in the pits of Hell, the beast and himself.

“Ha! Higher, beast!
Reach! Reach to the top where the leaves are hiding the good stuff,” screams the chief.

Lion bites, boughs break, the pain is the same.
Lion likes the taste so he swallows it whole because he knows there’s a dark boar deep inside.

Deep hollow, trapped in his sorrows.
Nine years in the pits of Hell.
