deus absconditus: part ii lyrics – xanthochroid

and as i watched him writhe in pain
i felt that familiar horror;
struggling to breath and console my fear,
i realized once again

the true nature of existence.
that awful reality i’ve tried to forget
since i was young.

“deus absconditus”
the eternal void that awaits us all,
“god who is hidden from man”
whether erthwile bound or a relic like me;

the infinite measure of time and sp*ce
captures each of us for all eternity.

“deus absconditus”
no one knows what lies beyond,
“god who is hidden from man”
but it matters not to me

whether it is a neverending paradise,
a burning pit of fire,
or a void of non-existence.

whatever horrors or pleasures
await us after this life
will never eclipse the cold chill
of time’s endless decay.
