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

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
3.
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
4.
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
5.
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

No Rope 05:25
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

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.
