"The Awry Ascent" is track eight on the Hungry Lights studio album "The Awry Ascent."

StoryEdit

In this chapter, Prill must ascend a large, spiraling staircase. He is called by the sound of chimes ringing in the distance. Higher and higher he climbs the endless staircase until he finally becomes aware and shatters the illusion. He enters the room at the top of the lighthouse. Prill queries to Flinter about the whereabouts of the sea-creature he seeks. The seer grants him the knowledge, but also tries to dissuade him and warns him that the path he walks is not one of reward, but one of punishment. Prill then embarks on his voyage.

LyricsEdit

Every step shall resonate as the culling of privation

And in the echo of my forward betterment,

I'd blaze a path for more to draggle


Burned by the false wonder

Yet still, I felt content

Afraid of the sound of the chimes

In their very nature was how I made my choice for the awry ascent


O' how I roared for a cease!

A staircase not of sense, but made of dreams that evade

And grow until the ivy sprouts into the sky

And shadows true existence

-A false mirage

What a foul immersion!


Burned by the false wonder

Yet still, I felt content

Afraid of the sound of the chimes

In their very nature was how I made my choice for the awry ascent



No seer would tell me of my discarded faith

I dismissed such heed

I was embodied with pride—O' ego!

-The worst of evils



Burned by the false wonder

Yet still, I felt content

Afraid of the sound of the chimes

In their very nature was how I made my choice for the awry ascent



How the albatross can soar with those heavy, iron wings

They would weigh me like a stone with a chiseled, cosmic story

I admired such vim

I admired such courage

For it showed me I could fly

If I only would endure

 Trivia Edit
