A great silence has fallen, the sibilant tongues are quiet

 Viper’s venom and a woman’s blood blend on the haunted sands

Out of one severed head grows a manifold consciousness

 

Yet, in the monster’s last breath a human’s dying wish

That from this trail of death, life and death will be reared.

 

In the dust, scaly coils formed and a glittering eye spawned

Out of one severed head grows a manifold consciousness

 

Coiled around your heart,

Sings a serpent within, pulling your strings

“His mind wav’ring and inconstant as the wind”

 

Heads or tails?                                               
Life’s a pattern with a myriad turns                      

Infected with a poison of indecision

Heads or tails?                                                               
Raging temptations, we’re panic-stricken         

Amphisbaena, the many-sided one

 

“I am the other one inside

I am the paradox in your mind

I feed on doubt and double-bind

Lurking and whispering that soon your time will be out”

 

Soul unchained

Heart in pain

 

Heads or tails?                                               
Life’s a pattern with a myriad turns                      

Infected with the poison of indecision

Heads or tails?                                                               
Raging temptations, we’re panic-stricken         

Amphisbaena, the many-sided one

 

Soul unchained

Heart in pain

Mental bane

The human strain
