Motionless In White – Black Damask (The Fog) lyrics

Now what have I become?
It's more black in my heart.
Than the ice in your lungs.

Hail elegance as we revel in the lust of pure destruction.
"Miss Cadaverous", let me light the darkness in your eyes.

I am yours.
Like the stillness of a corpse.
With a heart bound by ache
Though it doesn't beat it breaks.
I am cursed

I sew my eyes shut just to sleep.
We're caught in all the webs we weave
No sonnet for the recently deceased.
They lie awake just to hear you scream

Strip the world and paint it fucking black
Now what have you become?
You once felt like home
Now a ghost in the fog.

The funeral song of misery was played on keys of ivory
"Miss Cadaverous", show me who you really are
In your eyes I am yours
Such a paleness I adore
With a heart bound by pain
Though it doesn't beat it breaks
I am cursed

I sew my eyes shut just to sleep.
We're caught in all the webs we weave
No sonnet for the recently deceased.
They lie awake just to hear you scream

Right here, right now
Burn it fucking down

Oh what a mess I have made of my life
"His arms are around me,
His tongue in my eyes"
Hide my face from the light
"The Spider man is having me for dinner tonight"

I am cursed
Now go back to the start,
I still hear her voice
But she's lost in the fog

I sew my eyes shut just to sleep.
We're caught in all the webs we weave
No sonnet for the recently deceased.
They lie awake just to hear you scream

Strip the world and paint it fucking black

Your "love" is just a frail disguise
To hide the pain behind your eyes
In Lacerated lullabies
We all fall down
Your "love" is just your alibi
The antidote of your demise
In lacerated lullabies
We all fall down.

    I think it's to do with a break up which leads to the person realising he's changed and being upset with himself about what he's become because of the line "what have I become?" being repeated for one thing. I think about break ups because of lines like "your love is just you along" as if she wanted something from him and now he's realised that he's being used and exploited and that the love he thought they had was a lie. The line from "I sew my eyes sh*t just to sleep" to "no sonnet for the recently deceased" suggests to me that he is struggling physically as well as emotionally to deal with the feeling because it's stopping him sleeping and "I lie awake just to hear you scream" suggests he's annoyed with the person for the whole situation and wants to hear them screaming in agony or dead to take it out on them but without doing it himself because otherwise he would have said something more like "I lie awake just to beat you up". "Strip the world and paint it f**king black" is referring to him feeling depressed. Black is seen as a negative colour and so stripping the world and painting it black would be reflecting how he is feeling and taking the situation.

    Anyway. This is a great song and who knows? Everything I've written could very well be horribly wrong.
