Track Name: VOID SHALLOWS
downed and out, unequivocally fucked up
drowning roots in the void shallows
at all ends must die
at all ends must die
drown in tomorrow to forget today
deadened senses for dead end sensing
grey numb
blue cold
white sterile
black dead
unyielding
unwanted
unyielding
unwanted
fuck this

(anyone who puts them selves fully into their art, may sometimes feel like quitting when what they do isn't received or understood or appreciated, we are all creatures with fragile egos, some are just more rooted in their indecencies then others. this about wanting to quit because it hurts too much, but it'd hurt more to let it go"
Track Name: SOY DIOS ( I AM GOD )
state of nothing
drained fucking being
an endless parade of mediocrity
and goddamn nepotism
vanguard of artistry
swept under the tide
for refusal of pandering
you don't know what you've got till it's gone

(every human has felt both frustration and jealousy at some point in its life, while the world outside of ours is systematically unfair, the one we construct for ourself outside of the mainstream still sometimes lets unfair systems trickle in, sometimes bands are held in higher regard because they had stronger friendships with key members of the scene and are given more help then those who may be more deserving because of who much actual work they've put in without receiving much regard. so this is for anyone who goes out there and pushes their shit every day and aren't getting hand outs because of nepotism or hype, or extremely arbitrary rules people apply to "the scene")
Track Name: DESTROYED IN SILENCE
thinking of all the things I missed
now I'm left here standing pissed
when all you got was a slap on the wrist
now I want to break your face on my fist

its so easy to never care
apathy is a fucking disease

fuck your city
fuck your scene
fuck your crew
fuck you too

(this is as blunt as I felt I could get about people I cut out of my life after it was revealed to me they were complicit in a close friends abuse. at first the absence of their presence in your life felt like something special had been lost, memories of once pleasant times were forever tainted. but really that meant nothing because who wants to rose tint happy times with shitty people. i bought into their facades. I'd rather focus my attention on how our scene does the bare minimum for supporting those that are abused by others within the scene. there is a noticeable trend towards neutrality, which never works, anything other then siding with the victim is siding with the abuser. deal with it.)
Track Name: PRETORIUS
carved formless leaning upward
gleaming, glowing, godlike
so empty, so destructive. x2
like strychnine we choke
our fire spent, souls extinguished

(have you ever witnessed something so beautiful that you were then worried you would never witness something as magnificent again in your life?)
Track Name: I'D RATHER GO BLIND
day in day out
stare deep into
the facade of human interaction
ever constant plugging away
keep dumping coins
ever constant struggle to remain
on the forefront of others minds
left out dropping out
pointless waste of time
getting fucked
i built it
you break it
nothing ever happens.

(when the monotony of the everyday starts to creep into our private lives, or our shared existence in a close group, it can become very hard to remember why we even try to live outside the normal existence)
