Heavy Is The Crown The Worst Of Evils

"Constancy" is track nine on the Hungry Lights studio album "Heavy Is The Crown."

StoryEdit

Imprisoned inside this prism-like cage of mirrors, Prill becomes shamed and depressed. The more he looks at himself and his life, the more he wishes he did not exist. He thinks about how much happier the people in his life would be if they had never met him—if he had never been born.

LyricsEdit

Fate decides this time I spend alone

And I know it’s not forever

So I keep to myself—my own little imperfection

Would I try to write my own way or trace the lines between the dots?


O' I wish I could forget everything!

To dig up all the seeds I had sown

All the dreams I had chased...

How I wanted to make this right!

But their buzzing dampened the way

The swarm was too loud

And was drowning the sound of my soul's shrieks


How I just want to go back and remove myself from others’ lives!

Blow up the bridge—a bomb between you and me

Another could take my place

I want to be a nobody

I want to disappear


Your word's only good when it's not make-believe

It's harder to reclaim a trust once it leaves

And harder to do so from behind the walls of a prison cell

But your arrow met its mark down the center

Splintered-fractured!

And dust was all that matched

What you shot from the quiver of your scorn

-Such bolts don't belong here


I just want to go back and remove myself from others’ lives!

Blow up the bridge—a bomb between you and me

Another could take my place

I want to be a nobody

I want to disappear


O' they took my lamb away!

And the wolf I was, how I howled resurgence!

And this chastened snare of pride and steel was a part of me

How I'd bite my own head off!


I was burning, I was weakened

What I felt’s below dismay

To inherit such stigma and peel back that shell

I don’t belong here


No one cried, "timber" when I fell

My roots were worn and dried

So I just fell...

I just fell apart


Were you ever even with me?

Did you ever even care?

-Another victim for the coward’s rage

If I went to the beginning, and I traced it back to here,

Would I understand my flaws?


And what am I to do with this limiting, fail-safe rationale?

And who was I to fool?

Being the conqueror,

I had vanquished all the petty, little thorns on the sidewalk

-Kept the concrete clear

And so time increased its pacing

Now too fast—I’ve grown afraid!

And what am I to do with my fear?

And how do I prevent these burning tears from falling out?

If I run from the truth, I’m only hiding from myself

But that reflection in the mirror?

That’s not the person I should see
