Heavy Is The Crown The Worst Of Evils

"Constancy" is track nine on the Hungry Lights studio album "Heavy Is The Crown." Remember that this is a summary, not the entire story! It is like 1-10% of what is actually going on—just the skeleton.

StoryEdit

Not a lot goes on in this chapter. Prill is still imprisoned, so everything that goes on is a stream of consciousness about regret, and more self-deprecation. Prill wishes he could erase himself from existence because he believes the world would be a better place without him in it. He is very angry, and there is nothing he can do about it which just further enrages him. He is powerless.

LyricsEdit

Fate decides this time I spend alone

And I know it’s not forever

So I keep to myself—my own little imperfection

Would I try to write my own way

Or trace the lines between the dots?


O' I wish I could forget everything!

To dig up all the seeds I had sown,

All the dreams I had chased...

How I wanted to make this right!

But their buzzing dampened the way

The swarm was too loud

And was drowning the sound of my soul's shrieks


How I just want to go back

And remove myself from others’ lives!

Blow up the bridge—a bomb between you and me

Another could take my place!

I want to be a nobody

I want to disappear


Your word's only good when it's not make-believe

It's harder to reclaim a trust once it leaves

And harder to do so from behind the walls of a prison cell

But your arrow met its mark down the center

Splintered, fractured,

And dust was all that matched what you shot

From the quiver of your scorn

-Such bolts don't belong here


How I just want to go back

And remove myself from others’ lives!

Blow up the bridge—a bomb between you and me

Another could take my place!

I want to be a nobody

I want to disappear


O' they took my lamb away!

And the wolf I was, how I howled resurgence!

And this chastened snare of pride and steel was a part of me

How I'd bite my own head off!


I was burning

I was weakened

What I felt’s below dismay

To inherit such stigma and peel back that shell

I don’t belong here


No one cried, "timber" when I fell

My roots were worn and dried

So I just fell...

I just fell apart


Were you ever even with me?

Did you ever even care?

-Another victim for the coward’s rage

If I went to the beginning,

And I traced it back to here,

Would I understand my flaws?


And what am I to do with this limiting, fail-safe rationale?

And who was I to prove?

Being the conqueror,

I had vanquished all the petty, little thorns on the sidewalk

-Kept the concrete clear

And so time increased its pacing

Now too fast—I’ve grown afraid!

And what am I to do with my fear?

And how do I prevent these burning tears from falling out?

If I run from the truth, I’m only hiding from myself

But that reflection in the mirror,

That’s not the person I should see
