about

An underlying theme of all humanity is that we struggle so hard to achieve such great, lofty goals, be they superficial or altruistic, only to accept the fact that someday we will all fail. We will abandon our dreams to wealth, moral differences, lack of strength, complacency, or death.

Track Name: Destroyer
Will you wait for me atop the mountain?
Shimmering like gold I climb
But then I fall upon the stones below
I see your face, your eyes fixed on my soul
I weep at your feet
I see that I was blind
I pray for my soul
I kneel at your mercy
My child, you said, I cast thee into the fire
Laden with shame and sorrow I burn
And welcome sweet blackness
I weep at your feet
I see that I was blind
I pray for my soul
I kneel at your mercy
Track Name: Sky Burial
To the Earth I give my body
Wretched and lifeless it lays
Among the weeds and the worms
Scavengers eat at my tendons
Maggots dissolve my skin
While carrion feeders pick my bones clean
White as bleach, shining in the sun
The birds fly away with my teeth
I become one with the dirt
I become the dirt
Beneath your bare feet
I can feel you walking on my ribcage
I can hear your heart
Beating
Beating
Beating
Beating
Track Name: Icarus
I floated up beyond the heavens
Beyond the clouds
I looked down below
At all I left behind
All I loved means nothing
The ground, a wasteland
Reaching for the sun
But I flew too close

The Earth rushes to meet me
With open arms and grasping fingers
Penetrating my essence
Wings singed and reduced to ashes
