about

Originally intended as a 12"/CS co-release with Conditions Records, this recording represents the culmination of our 3+ years together and we are all intensely proud of it. Thanks for your support, perhaps we will reconvene at some point in the not-so distant future.

Track Name: Folie à Deux
Desperate clutching
Grasp at empty air
As you fumble in the dark
For a new life
But there's no heart
Left to find here
In these red eyed nights
Of excess meant to...
...find a new way
To crawl in these
Cold graves
Always ends the same
Desolation stains
Freezing air cuts wide
Our eyelids
In the Frost's embrace
The void lives inside us
We'll hide where no one
Can follow
As we walk these nights
To help us each to...
Find our own way
To crawl
In these cold graves
Always ends the same
Desolation wastes
They won't be around
When it comes for you
I won't leave your side
When it comes for you
When it comes
Moonlit slivers
Scatter the treeline
The shadows here
Will cover our last tracks
When all our lives are extinguished
We seek only silence
There is only silence
Once we finally...
Find our own way
To crawl in these cold graves
Always ends the same
Desolation
Track Name: Forgotten Skin
Chase you down
Through this wretched black
Like a shadow
Silent plotting
Right behind your back
Detach yourself
From these guilt stained arms
That bury any loving nature
Bones lept out your skin
Crawling blood
Mental atrophy
Is a timeless drug
Scream it out
Through these toxic lungs
Like a shadow
Silent waiting until
You've come undone
Remove yourself
From this mundane life
And bury your own
Hopeless nature
Track Name: Shallow Drownings
A starry stroll down mercy Lane
To find a corridor
To toss the day from my head
And dam these swelling seas
That lie awake
Crashing
A soothing breeze
Through a house fire
I'm burning
Constrict / Dilate
Shoulder the unbearable weight
Look around, who's to blame
For this grating bell toll
That wakes you from
Dreams of life fulfilled
Fall back
In the swamps of self
A stagnant soul
The pain of hope
At once annulled away
Constrict / Dilate
Shoulder the unbearable weight
Contract / Extend
Fracture and mend
A shallow body to drown
No more room
No more hope
No more breath
No more life
Goodbye
Track Name: Eradicated Man
A pestilent view
Land crawling with parasites
Racing
To build themselves and all they love
The prettiest tombs
Perfect time to cross us out
Nature's mistake
Mankind wiped clean
From this planet's withered face
Atomic flowers blooming
Scrawling death in the skies
Endless winter takes hold
To close the last of the eyes.
Festering wound
The human stain, a drain of life
Outside everything
Beyond our mortal view
Perfect time to cross us out
Consume the waste
In death, once and for all
But finally saving face
Close the last of the eyes
Track Name: Invite / Unfold / Exhaust
Invite the feeling of pain
Rewind, live it again and again
In time it'll eat you away
This time, last time
I swear I'll make it today
Fear alone
Could make the world turn round
Nemesis knocking all the while
Unfold your insides again
Untold: the memory of tepid skin
In time, you and I rot away
This time
Last time
Mainlined final escape
Fear alone
Could make the world turn round
Nemesis knocking all the while
Fear alone
Could make my world crash down
Stabbing at exhausted lines
Bleed them dry
Track Name: No Rope
We hold our loved ones
To the flames
They send regards
Hold out for praise
These open arms all sway
Like snakes
These crooked smiles
Too much to take
This is the result
None left but time to isolate
There's no rope here
For when the bottom gives away
Stare so far down
Inviting sound
There's no rope here
For when the bottom gives away
We stand to fall
Not much to lose
They send regards
Just when they choose
These open arms
Can't find their way
These crooked smiles
Never seem to stay
This is the result
None left but time to isolate
There's no rope here
For when the bottom gives away
Stare so far down
Inviting ground
There's no rope here
For when the bottom gives away
