"Piñata" is track six 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

In this chapter, Prill is awoken from a nightmare and feels strangely about what he has seen. The inkling of indifference from the previous song is buzzing and rattling around inside him, and the more he thinks on it, the more flustered he becomes. Eventually, he disembarks at a tiny inlet near a cliff-side, and he begins to scale it. He then runs into a woman named "Atah'xia" who claims she has escaped Reflaugh and his goons, and that they were doing horrible things to her—this further agitates Prill, and he begins to greatly doubt himself again. The woman shows Prill the way to the "entrance" to the lair, then pushes him over the edge in an act of betrayal.

LyricsEdit

A wasp buzzed with the beat of a drum that no one could hear

I was in dream when it pattered across my window of trance

The waves heaved out a lumbered breath

The eager sun stung my eyes

The dream appeared as a riddle,

For the soul cannot speak in words

Your temptation found the stone

When my perception was in the gray

So I poked onerous at that dial

That was lodged so deep inside my pith


I did not ask to have this dream

And with all the bloodshed, I'd one way to repent

And when all the hellions opposing me

Have kicked the flames,

You’ll be back here with me


To the heights, another foul nest—no branches

I denied all I felt inside as they brought me down

I was good ‘til your devilish stone kept prying

To not invite the poison bite as they danced behind my eyes


You threw your stone right into my chest

And truth be told, I had not bled for this

The vespiary inside was breached

And here come the wasps to pique those in their way!


To the heights, another foul nest—no branches

I denied all I felt inside as they brought me down

I was good ‘til your devilish stone kept prying

To not invite the poison bite as they danced behind my eyes


And who am I not to set them free?

When if I don’t, they’ll eat away my insides

I might have kept the nest, but you threw your stone

So it’s not my fault

No, it’s not my fault!


And who am I not to set them free?

When if I don’t, they’ll eat away my insides

And who are you to act so pristine?

Like you don’t have some soot of your own

Well, Mrs. Humble,

I’m sorry I don’t shine

I’m a little scratched up from the mistakes of my life

O’ Mrs. Humble,

I’m sorry I don’t shine!

I’m a little scuffed up from the mistakes I’ve made

-But at least I lived my life

Bet you’ll come around


O’ I feel like I’m ruined!

Their sting has seen to it

And who’s watching?

Who’s watching?

In mirrors—reflections


The swarm inside’s rewrote my way

And I don't think I can be saved

Too caught within their wicked horde,

And we’ll never change

So we sin and are sent down where I found my crown

We sin and we sin and we sin and we sin


Ever careful, you lead me to the edge

-A drop so endless, there’s no room to misstep

And you told me,

“I hope you brought your wings”

A push so gentle, I barely seemed to notice the fall

Did I trust you...

-Touched by Heaven’s dirty fingers
