about

We are indebted to the Void & vectors for bearing us; to the Ideas & facsimiles for birthing us; to Piovanelli & Ooluu for conceiving us; to Serraph, for bleeding us; to Medusa, for breaking us; to the Darkness, for healing us; to the Matriarchs, for raising us; to Ignius, for engendering us; to King, for quantifying us; to Thi, for instructing us; to the Patriarch, for bulwarking us; to Love, for tempering us — & to Gravity, for guiding us.

Track Name: Manichaeus
we are not told
how low these holes go
these naked bones know
they’ve long bathed in the dirt

so unlike me
stain all the white sheets
gorge on your mercies
i flay myself again

finity
red is what I see
fucking tear away a promise to myself
re-live
bated me — gave a shit
ragged epilogue
started and finished it

ligaments shorn
reused
reworn

we are not told
how low these holes go
these naked bones know
they’ve long bathed in the dirt

so unlike me
stain all the white sheets
gorge on your mercies
i flay myself again

lies
faded porcelain eyes
your vision of sanctity is written
go on without me

tried
land and sea collide
i know it's the only way
and that this won't be the last time

we are not told
how low these holes go
these naked bones know
they’ve long bathed in the dirt

so unlike me
stain all the white sheets
gorge on your mercies
i flay myself again

we are not told
how low these holes go
these naked bones know
they’ve long bathed in the dirt

so unlike me
stain all the white sheets
gorge on your mercies
i flay myself again
Track Name: Viscera
wrap my hands around your neck
my digits fade away
i've let go, my arms object
ego fades and falls astray

"can't see it, but I feel like
everything could happen for you"
"can't see it, but I feel like
everything could happen for you"

tearing at my viscera
vacant stares, occluded faces
lips form words that won't come out
in the vacuum of the vacant shout

i returned here from the end
the weeds have waxed and grown
what you want, never what you get
it's the only way i've known

can't see it, but I feel like
everything is happening to me
can't see it, but I feel like
everything is happening to me
can't see it, but I feel like
everything is happening to me
can't see it, but I feel like
everything is happening to me

tearing at my viscera
vacant stares, occluded faces
lips form words that won't come out
in the vacuum of the vacant shout
Track Name: Calenture
divine
basks in sublime
this precious pet of mine
this desire for everything again

null
pushes the now
it never quite amounts
i’ve felt that fear
immense and unpronounced

i find you in me
within the endless sea
you’re lost in me
indeed an endless sea

disaffection
breaking in the wake of dreams
nothing’s quite as it seems

within this shell
i’m not the only one
i was never the only one

unfurl the concealed despair
blinded daggered glare
you tempted?
i’m the snake charmer
tear you down

power
i’ll make you taste it
elongated resentment
we cultivate these forms and this design

disaffection
breaking in the wake of dreams
nothing’s quite as it seems

within this shell
i’m not the only one
i was never the only one

i find you in me
within the endless sea
you’re lost in me
within an endless sea
Track Name: Porcelain
hollow is long and narrow
within the Void i am not alone

flesh, blood, eyes, hands and marrow
deliver myself; i am trapped no more

on the verge of discontent, consent to kill
admonish-mate the fig and it was ripe with your spit

bathed and broken, assiduously insincere
your means became the end of all that i've ever known

no sharp swords, but you know there’s another side
we are more than just waiting to fucking die

we’re the shield, the blind lead the blind, disease-
spangled heroes, suffocation’s never free

there isn’t a place for me
you threw it away
down falls the failing mercury
this all faded away

no sharp swords, but you know there’s another side
we are more than just waiting to fucking die

we’re the shield, the blind lead the blind, disease-
spangled heroes, suffocation’s never free

bathed and broken, assiduously insincere
your means became the end of all that i've ever known

no sharp swords, but you know there’s another side
we are more than just waiting to fucking die

we’re the shield, the blind lead the blind, disease-
spangled heroes, suffocation’s never free
Track Name: Gnosis
inside my gut, feel the pus
feel the seed
came from the bottom
then chopped off my feet

i am among them
the sad and the fucked
married to Sodom and pinned to the front

take off your face so I can
take a little time off of your life
step down from grace or i’ll
tear another wing off before flight

bloodstained complexion
i just can’t emote
milk, spit, and honey
pour down my throat

take off your face so i can
take a little time off of your life
step down from grace or i’ll
tear another wing off before flight

idols slipping out of view
i am alone
betrayed by you
don’t believe in this contrast
floodgates of filth opened at last

i am not so feeble but i feel diseased
i can’t feel the void but it’s calling for me
i see through the keyhole and i don’t know what to say
i can’t touch the devil but she’s part of me today

i am not so feeble but i feel diseased
i can’t feel the void but it’s calling for me
i see through the keyhole and i don’t know what to say
i can’t touch the devil but she’s part of me today

i am not so feeble but i feel diseased
i can’t feel the void but it’s calling for me
i see through the keyhole and i don’t know what to say
i can’t touch the devil but she’s part of me today

i am not so feeble but i feel diseased
i can’t feel the void but it’s calling for me
i see through the keyhole and i don’t know what to say
i can’t touch the devil but she’s part of me today

take off your face so i can
take a little time off of your life
step down from grace or i’ll
tear another wing off before flight

take off your face so i can
take a little time off of your life
step down from grace or i’ll
tear another wing off before flight

take off your face so i can
take a little time off of your life
step down from grace or i’ll
tear another wing off before flight

take off your face so i can
take a little time off of your life
step down from grace or i’ll
tear another wing off before flight

i am among them
the sad and the fucked
married to Sodom and pinned to the front
Track Name: Polyvalence
blanching blank in dull faceless pain
the solace of solitude
within me decays

sip you but nothing nothing slakes my thirst
this dry, cracked, clay body
bore me through dirt

i am infinite ambition
i become the void
lord of cavities

vacuous hunger exacting a toll
he blended beneath blankets of snow

this is the instant
attach myself again
above the material
this can be taken away
Track Name: Victor
how’d i do this to myself?
why’d i choose this?
coiled and cast far away
how’d i do this to myself?
why’d i choose this?
coiled and cast away

round and round
temptation to taste this
snake skin thrilling me

endless game resentment
endless game, you’re restless
pathetic pariah putrefying

you are above this
and underneath it
bloodsickened and smitten
fate you cannot leave

how’d i do this to myself?
why’d i choose this?
coiled and cast far away

do it, Adam
take the knife and make that cut
do it, dear Adam
I am now your only god

this is the only way
I can’t contain this lust
you are the rock; I am the sea

ouroboros
ouroboros
what goes around comes around

sweat, salt
i could not see it
you couldn’t resist me
sweat, salt
i could not see it
you couldn’t resist me
sweat, salt
i could not see it
you couldn’t resist me
sweat, salt
i could not see it
you couldn’t resist me

do it, Adam
take the knife and make that cut
do it, dear Adam
I am now your only god
do it, dear Adam
plunge that sword into your gut
do it, dear Adam
I am now your only god

sweat, salt
i could not see it
you couldn’t resist me
sweat, salt
i could not see it
you couldn’t resist me
sweat, salt
i could not see it
you couldn’t resist me
sweat, salt
i could not see it
you couldn’t resist me

choke on your tail
you haven’t won
i am the victor
and you are redone

choke on your tail
you haven’t won
i am the victor
and you are redone

choke, choke, choke
choke on your tail
choke, choke, choke
choke on your tail

choke, choke, choke
choke on your tail
choke, choke, choke
choke on your tail

you know, i see
you are the same as me
Track Name: Man
rise, fain the hide
we couldn’t fade or feign fake lives

eyes sought our paradigm
the cyclic, a towering abuse

bite down on the teat
blank, bloodstained, concrete
high tide fucks the weak
those born into bondage

we are complete
blank, bloodstained, concrete
high tide fucks the weak
those born into bondage

look us in our eyes
dried up the sea, sadistically cried
let us get back to you
the cyclic
the dead attract the flies

bite down on the teat
blank, bloodstained, concrete
high tide fucks the weak
those born into bondage

we are complete
blank, bloodstained, concrete
high tide fucks the weak
those born into bondage

you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
you’re not awake
