Mori Calliope「Ouroboros」Lyrics

In ages forgotten, a Reaper was born
Spinning tales of deadly belief
A yearning to traverse that forest of thorns
In remembrance of what lie beneath


The dangers abounding, the horrors untold
Cloud my vision, ’till I cannot see
Peculiar enchantments begin to unfold
And the Underworld calls back to me


As the light grows dimmer and fades…
Cross that river now, make our way beyond the gates


Release from our confinement
Together, we’ll find it
The trail is fraught with perils,
And yet, we don’t mind it


But looking towards horizons reminding me of then
Can’t repent
Though I’ve hardly been spent


A journey downward toward somewhere new, yet familiar
I’m learning how to stand
For the smile I swear to defend


Till the end
As we further descend, then
Shall we go?
To be swallowed by fates below


A moment in history, a flicker in time
A mystery I still can’t break through
I’m deathly defiant of crossing that line,
I don’t want to break down before you…


Reach downward to glory, yet upward- what for?
An ouroboros of earthly desire
Devouring my tale just to tell it once more
Am I still the gold statue you admire?


Collecting all the stories we’ve enjoyed
And reflecting on the thorns that near destroyed me


I sang about a journey’s end, and now we come upon
Another one
The sun setting earlier than believed


From this point downward, I cannot return
For the final dream I sought is so close yet far within my reach


Though I’d like it to be known
This I made on my own


Release from our confinement
Together, we’ll find it
The trail is fraught with perils,
And maybe all is as it should be.


I promise I’ll still be me
My mistakes
Somehow made a good story great


A journey downward toward somewhere new, yet familiar
I’m learning how to stand
For the smiles I swear to defend


Till the end
As we further descend, then
Shall we go?
Swallowed up by what waits below
