Shipwreck A.D. – Ascent lyrics

Slowly it etches, jagged cracks appear
The face of a lion, the sum of my fears
As I walk it grows, steadily erupting
Glacier teeth from it's mouth
Spawning clouds make up it's mane
From all the hate I try to redirect
From all the pain I don't let affect
My stone face, it's like the mountain is me
Solid to the eye, but melting underneath
Callous and numb, I make my ascent
Up this volcanic slope I try to pretend
That I'm just indifferent
Meanwhile the rage is overflowing
Climbing higher to reach the summit
Striving harder to overcome it
The misery that dwells in me
Wrath flowing through every vein
I feel the knot begin to tie
Internal pressure starts to rise
Fangs of temper bite my chest
With crushing jaws they overwhelm
The lava, the angst, the eruption
My uphill battle ensues
I push the boulder just to watch it roll
Amongst the smoldering flames below
Cursed by my own despair
I try to leave it and trudge on
Climbing higher to reach the summit
Striving harder to overcome it
Climbing higher to be free of it
Striving harder I overcame
