Death In June – Break The Black Ice lyrics

Time for sleep
Time for prayers
Time for dusk
Dust in eyes
Grinning jaws
Grit in teeth
All things pass
Death and deeds
Break the black ice
In this earth
In this town
In this land
In this hour
In this time
For this age
In this flesh
In this joining
Break the black ice
In this spasm
In this jerk
In this city
A little death
For this boy
Little screams
A little blood
A tattooed rune
Break the black ice
In this kiss... Not yours not mine
In this curse... Not yours not mine
In this kiss... Not yours not mine
In this curse... Not yours not mine

    A child. Tired and fighting off sleep or already in. The midst of a nightmare. Black ice you will not see coming and it will askew you on the road (path of growth) you are travelling on Earth, land, town, all. Solid references to knowing your reality of being. Now, age- flesh- joining a nightmare of molestation. Perhaps real or in sleep. Screams-blood- from a possible rape. Tattooed rune. Permanent scar of protection or harm. Open for interp. The kiss/curse a possible explanation is that the author is gay, and of how people view him-the kiss of life acceptance, or a curse. Alienated. Not mine not yours. No labels.
