Track Name: Solus
Stay distant
Self centered
Exalt in an empty home
Wake up alone
Anxiety is
Waiting, holy,
Stay distant
Track Name: A Light in the Darkness That Faded as I Approached
You'll never be alone
Carve those words into my side with broken glass.
"God wouldn't even touch this"
You take me in.
I have shaken hands with regret.
Stand by my side as I kiss oblivion.
I am.
A fallen angel freezing in a thankless heaven
Track Name: Always, Loss
I lay next to you
Aching, half-awake
Your space consumed me
Blue and muted grey

You glowed between the blinds

I am vapid, i am idle, i am simple
Eat my flesh
Be whole
You are
Track Name: Le Tout Bas
Every clear thought a victory
Sober & taut
Kneel at the gates of your cowardice
From absent minded want and
Anxious need
Defined by desire & longing
Freedom becomes weakness
Knowing, base

“Man fears the darkness and so he scrapes away at the edges of it with fire”
Track Name: Perennial Self
Be damned in this perpetual state
Be damned in this perpetual state of war
Separate from self
Nothing satisfies
We can’t hide from this
What truth lies
When the roots are cut
We are the absolute loss
Forgive me, forgive me
Forever lost in the spectacle
Track Name: Drought
God spoke to you
Breathing life
Breeding lies
The phone will always ring
I sit still
As your blood empties from my veins
You always leave me dry.
Track Name: Moult
"Illusions of unity, fertilized by love."
Hand in hand. We are truly alone.
Cast aside what's been expected of us.
When it all collapses
We are naked. Ashamed by our emptiness.
No more, the desperate will break their dependency and drown our infatuation. Our dreams of monogamy, have no stable ground.
What we build together.
The connections we share.
Will outnumber all of the times we have failed.
Death to the old world.
Return to the earth.
We must find each other.
Epoch of rebirth.
Track Name: Disassociated
Goodbye child.
I’ll let you sleep
Time destroyed my innocence
I'll watch all your love leave.
You won't recognize, but these eyes
Forever haunted by your suicide
Bash my head into the mirror
Your reflection has taken mine
Locked myself inside this room
Memories circle like shadows.
Mother, I'm covered in the family sin.
The curse creeping up to my ear.
Whispering "I can set you free"
I can save you
Now, bury me alive
I'll watch all the love drain from my body
Track Name: Represented in Bondage
Barren minds
Lost significance
Longing for reason
Individual purpose
Exchanged for a list of wants
Represented in bondage
Acting only in our dreams
We long for this
To resist
Burn past desires
Glory to the arsonists
Track Name: Death Will Never Be Enough
Now she watches her every move
Shadows creeping closer.
Bastard of creation
You will never face
What your lust creates
Humanity is plagued
With your breath
Death will never be enough
Because others will follow your path
We must rid your seed.
We must cleanse your filth from our being.
Cowardice man. Shedding skin. Your touch a memory.
Crawl to your grave
As loneliness picks you apart.
It circles like vultures
Only the flies will love you
