In The Eyes Of A Sword Fothcrah

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

In the final seconds of the song, the growl of a monster can be heard, to represent Fothcrah, an enormous sea creature, emerging from the depths.


A storm has started, and Prill's ship almost capsized as he prepares for the catch. The seed of doubt that was planted many chapters ago has grown into a deathly, rampant weed that has ravaged the garden of his mind, and reflects nothing but fear, shame, and desperation. He believes that he cannot turn back anymore. He has no choice but to continue forward on his quest.


Imagination was crawling across the water

Across my head-coveafraid of what sight

It mitigated valor, removed all courage, canceled my progress, and left me abashed

My walls were rising

And I'd not see them until my shadow was three times my size

O' how would I get back unscathed and unbroken?


And now, in this moment of paralled focus, we'd hold this trade

Deep in the crux of the ocean, she had awoken

Behold all her wonder!

I cast—did my lie

O' would she ever bite to taste the lure?

A shaky hand in place for the reel and turn

What my reflection turned into denies all of truth and burns

My soul, trapped by mirrors of fire

The flames emanate the lie

And the way was shut

O' I am festering in misery!

Inner-strength's begun to wither

The path I walk's been overgrown with vines and thorns

-Crushing all that grew

And strangling my truth

Til' I am barely breathing

-I've been doomed

Then, lightning struck my brow

Raining daggers cut me down

But I did not let go...

I never would let go!

It cracked the sky

I could notwould notshould not be a hero

At sudden, breaching from the clouds, another burst of brilliance

And in the crashing down, it split my vesseloverturned

And holding onto what was left had kept my faith secured

My god had shown his hand

And the knives of rain came down

And the waves would lurch and swell

And any who crossed my way would think me all but sane

I cast again, and watched it glissade through my fingers

Like caterpillars, tremoring outside the comfort of their chrysalis

Such metamorphosis took place here tonight
