Between The Buried And Me - Prequel To The Sequel lyrics

The headless lover of three,
An unspeakable affair
The lady on the hill
Creates a glorious
Departure from her every time
Or everyday life
Constant swelling of the ankles

A pleasant cry for help
A pleasant cry for help
A pleasant cry for help

A grieving widow mothered this headless wonder
A perfect crime that soon lived on
A different life it had to develop
Gripped by every limb it could hold
The lifeless ideas it grew onto its own
A much needed surrender
Trees soon started to grow from what seemed a lifeless neck

From a monster to a beauty in quick months
Its life seemed to be on its way to a rare freedom
It decided it should take advantage
Advantage of this idea
Of this idea!

A mixture of plantings soon took course in its body
A spectacle none-the-less
Walking proud through life letting its branches guide the way
A path which seemed to be covered in sunshine

It must be human, for its qualities seem
To outdo even the grandest occupant of the town

This started to catch the attention of the un-branched
It had never experienced an affection of this kind
A wonderful and frightening new obstacle in its life
A wonderful and frightening new obstacle in its life

Years went by as it finally found its true love
The love of others
Others!
Three to be exact
Letting them into every secret
Feeding from every branch
Every part used for their lives

It noticed its walking seemed more staggered than normal
The breeze didn't flow like it used to
The heart seemed to pound slower and slower
What caused this?
(What caused this?)
It soon was noticed that these three had torn every branch, every single stem

Torn to its last life
How hadn't it noticed?
A drastic change in the surroundings
It didn't think anything could go this wrong

Comfort!
Comfort!
Comfort!
Comfort!
Comfort!
Comfort!
Comfort!
Comfort!

It thought life was constant happiness, if constant happiness was all that was given out (Given out!)
It thought life was constant happiness, if constant happiness was all that was given out (Given out!)

Comfort!
Comfort!
Comfort!
Comfort!

Hints and all,
They did as they pleased,
And now it's starting to wilt away
