The First God Second Best

"Speared" is track six on the Hungry Lights studio album "Three Gods & Me." Remember that this is a summary, not the entire story! It is like 1-10% of what is actually going on—just the skeleton.

Story Edit

In this chapter, Prill quickly flips his numb, suicidal thoughts to arrogance. After beating The First God, he feels unstoppable, but something is still missing. He still thinks himself stuck, pinned, trapped. He is disillusioned to his little victory, and he blames fate. He THINKS he literally cannot die.

Lyrics Edit

Assuming that I’m on a path that brings me somewhere,

Assimilate my mind into your great beyond

Still, something was bothering… 

I’d lost a part of me

All of my thoughts are exploding outward


I’m so confident!

And I’m valiant

And I’ve found my stride

So no ocean, nor buzzing could stop me now

But what is this spear?


When I try to look outside myself,

I can find nothing that I value

Do I lift my head up to the sky

To ask why I’ve been speared?

But no—this was not about me


Hold on, more thoughts exploding outward

And I used to honestly believe

That no one could bother me

You don’t tell me what I’m after!

I just want a drop, not a cushioned fall… 


I’m so arrogant!

So I was seething when you left my side

I couldn’t blame you, for I was preachy

I’m rather full of it now

But hey, that has not stopped me...


When I try to look outside myself,

I can find nothing that I value

Do I lift my head up to the sky

To ask why I’ve been speared?

But no—this was not about me


I thought myself deranged

The things that I had named forsaken in the past

Had surely been remastered

And now that I could dream,

A precipice between the idealistic me

And all you without a mirror

Thrive much deeper, then you’ll see

You’ll believe

I’ve been blessed… 

So that’s why they can’t kill me


Yo, why it feel the life in the earth got cut up

And shut up

-Still didn’t die

‘Cause when I start to sink,

All reflections crack at the sight of what’s been done

Yo, I’ve tried to flee,

But you can’t outrun your fate if it’s written in stone

No, you gotta break that rock!

Consequence—suspense

Then we dance!

‘Cause no one could ever, ever tell me

That I got no chance to leave

Your words muffled out by all my inner screams

-That’s victory

I could show you all my dream!

I could hold myself above ya’ll and shine out 

‘Til there is nothing else to see!


I could shine with a glint of madness

So dark I would not be denied


So I was sanguine

And I was daring

And I shined so bright

I got caught up in glowing, so I missed the height

And the bottom was empty—as was said dream

Still, I went on uncaring ‘cause I was free of shame


When I try to look outside myself,

I can find nothing that I value

Do I lift my head up to the sky

To ask why I’ve been speared!?


-Deliverance

Didn’t see the tangle latched to me

Leash pulled back

I was restrained!

But watch me walk that beam with confidence

I need not balance, nor a choice

Just watch me trespass into that ring!
