Cognitive – From the Depths Lyrics

From the Depths Lyrics – Cognitive

Praise be the unseen
Ponder not the ocean
So deep
What lies just below the surface
Will steal your sanity
Tainted
Foul unclean
Their lidless eyes
Bulbous unblinking
What lies just below the surface
Will leave you insane

Gaze upon the shoreline
The stench is sickening
Odorous of sea and rot
This place reeks of aquatic disease
When I arrived
on this broken harbor
I hadn’t foreseen
the awaiting horrors

Their skin
A sickening slippery green
Almost amphibian
Some bipedal
Others shamble four legged
All armed with teeth
Fit to rip and tear flesh asunder

Desperately I try to hide
I cannot bear the sight
Any longer
Terrorize my feeble mind
Between fight or flight
I’ll choose the latter
Frightfully flea for my life
What monstrosity
Would produced such
A wretched spawn?

Their skin
A sickening slippery green
Almost amphibian
Some bipedal
Others shamble four legged
All armed with teeth
Fit to rip and tear flesh asunder

All at once
Restless eyes dart straight to mine
Paralyzed
Stricken deaf
Frozen by fear
Collapsing
To the cobblestone below
What will now become of me?

Praise be the unseen
Ponder not the ocean
So deep
What lies just below the surface
Will steal your sanity
Tainted
Foul unclean
Their lidless eyes
Bulbous unblinking
What lies just below the surface
Will leave you insane
