about

“Man escaped from his head like the condemned man from his prison. He found beyond him not God, who is the prohibition of crime, but a being who doesn’t know prohibition. Beyond what I am, I meet a being who makes me laugh because he is headless, who fills me with anguish because he is made of innocence and crime. He holds a weapon of steel in his left hand, flames like a sacred heart in his right hand. He unites in one eruption birth and death. He is not a man. But he isn’t a god, either. He is not I, but he is more I than I: his belly is the labyrinth in which he himself goes astray, led me astray, and in which I find myself being he, that is, a monster

… [] …

the lot and the infinite tumult of human life are open not to those who exist like poked out eyes, but to those who are like clairvoyants, carried away by an upsetting dream that could not belong to them.”

- from The Sacred Conspiracy, 1936

Track Name: Veridical Line Drawn
BEHOLD THE LINE DIVIDING ALL
SPACE AND TIME
DRAWN BY THE EYE THAT BLURRED
VISIONS BIND
CHANNEL WORLDS TO RELEASE YOU
FROM THE DEPTHS
HOLDING CENTER'S EMBERED GLOW

BEHOLD THE LINE DIVINING ALL
SENSE FROM MIND
SWORN BY THE EYE, VISION'S BLIND
SACRED WORLDS TAPPED,
LANDSCAPE LEAVING
WAVERING SOULS IN CINDERED
LIGHT
Track Name: A Contorted Door
ITS TEETH MAR THE HINGES TURNING
A COSMIC OPENING
DEFINED IN SHADOW
SUSPENDED OUT OF REACH

TONGUES -- IRREVERENT LASHES
UNLOCKING THE SACRED VOID OF BLISS
TO BE FILLED -- REFUSE TO PURGE
THEIR ACRIMONY

THROAT -- UNRAVELED TUNNEL
WHERE THE INDEFINITE'S REDUCED
DRINKING YOU, LANGUISHING
THROUGH UNENDING CORRIDORS
TRANSIENT, ASOMATOUS LIGAMENTS
TYING PARALYZED BONDS

THIS CONTORTED DOOR
IMPENDS OUTSIDE REASON'S FRINGE
CHAOS TRICKLES FROM ITS STRUCTURE
AS IT BETRAYS AND BENDS, TO CONFUSE
SEWN POINTS THAT DISCONNECT
Track Name: Sand
TRAPPED BEHIND WALLS
FIRMAMENT LOCKS TO ASPHYXIATE
ITSELF FROM ITS OWN
FATAL ETHER
DRIFTING BACK AND FORTH
BOWING TO INFINITY'S
SLOUCHING HOUR
STRANGLED AT THE NECK
CRAWLING OUT
FROM SUFFOCATION
PLAGUED IN PARTICLES
SHELTERED HEADS BURIED
IN THE MUCK OF FAITH
THRIVING BEYOND FLESH

CHOKED
AT THE MIDDLE,
REDUCED
THROUGH TIME

INFINITY FIXED
OVER A TILTED GLASS,
STAGNATING
AN ERA SIFTING
LONGING AND DREAD
DRIFTING BACK
AND FORTH BOWING
TO INFINITY'S SLOUCHING
HOUR STRANGLED
AT THE NECK
THE CLIMB AND FALL THE SAME
WE'RE FOREVER SINKING
IN AN ESSENCE
COARSE LIKE SAND
GRINDING
TRUTH'S SHED FLESH
SHIFTING
RECOMPOSED PARTS,
ETERNITY COMPRESSED
TO INCOMPLETE
POINTS IN TIME
Track Name: The Distance Beneath
RISE, SOAR UP, FLY
TAKE TO NEW AIR
DRIFT, CLIMB, MOUNT THE SKY

FALL. SUFFER. REACH DOWN.
SPIRAL FROM YOUR CLOUD

INTO DEEPER DARKNESS
WHICH SOULS CANNOT GUIDE
THEIR GLOW ONLY LEADS
TO FURTHER DEPTHS
SCRAPING, A DEVOURING HUNGER,
RAVENOUS
EMPTINESS,
RIPS THE GROUND BELOW

DOOR OF LOST SPIRITS UNHINGED
ITS ROOM NO ONE LEAVES
THEY ARE FED FROM ITS WALLS
WHILE THEIR MAKER SITS AND
WEAVES
A HOLE YOU CANNOT MEND
IT WILLS NO ESCAPE
IT NEEDS YOU
TO OBEY

FIX YOUR HEART ON ITS PULSE
AND TREMBLE BEFORE THE INFINITE
BURIED BELOW PLANES OF SKIN
THE MALEVOLENCE OF BEING
DESCENDED

FIX YOUR HEART ON ITS PULSE
Track Name: Liminal Laceration
SUCK THE BLOOD
INFECTING THE VEIN
TAINTED HOST
THROUGH YOU LACERATES
TEARING EARTH
TO REVEAL A WORLD
WHERE ABSENCE IS KEY
STUCK WOUND OPENING

DEATH WAITING
IN THE GUISE OF LIFE
NOT PREYING IN SHADOW
BUT MASKED IN PLAIN LIGHT
OF YOUR BEING
PIERCING THROUGH
UNSEEN
IN A BED
MADE OF FLESH
TO TAKE YOUR BODY
VOIDING ITS DREAMS

ABSOLUTION OF THE WORLD
UNDER RIPPLES OF BLIGHT
LOST FROM SIGHT
SUBMERGED BENEATH ALIEN DEPTHS
REFUSING TO SURFACE NEW LIFE

SEEK OUT THE END
AND BE DECEIVED
IN A BATH OF VISIONS
CURSED POOL MISCONCEIVED

SCRY THROUGH THE BLIND MIRROR
THE UNKNOWN DISTORTS THE EYE
YOUR FLAME SEIZED BY YOUR
BETRAYER,
ITS CLEVER SILK, NOW BONDAGE,
ENTWINED
Track Name: Astral Blind
DESOLATE STATE ALTERING
ANTIPODAL SPHERES COLLIDE IN ME
THE AX CANNOT FREE THE SEA
FROM FROZEN BONDS
CHISELED IN SCREAMS
HORDES OF ECHOES RAPT
'NEATH VACANT RINGS

TO SAVOR ALL THE SAVIOR CALLS
PROJECT YOUR LIGHT TO SACRED
WORLDS
BOUND INSIDE ITS DOMINION
FIXED IN TRANSCENDENT SHADOW

TO SAVOR ALL (WE'RE BOUND INSIDE)
THE SAVIOR CALLS (ITS DOMINION)
PROJECT YOUR LIGHT (STUCK IN)
TO SACRED WORLDS (TRANSCENDENCE)

BURNING, BLINDING, BURNING, BLINDING
THE RADIANCE BLINDS
RADIANCE BINDS
THE RADIANCE BURNS
BURNING, BLINDING

PULLING A SOUL FROM ITS FLESH
CALLING FROM THE GRAVE
HOLD THE FACE OF ITS TRANCE
FALL DEEPER IN ITS GAZE

HALLOWED CIRCLE SETTING LOW
BLINDING LIFE OF ALL WE KNOW
PEEL THE SUN FROM 'ROUND ITS EARTH
WE HAVE OUTLINED OUR TIME IN ITS
BURNS
Track Name: Throne of Want
ALL CREATION FRAUDULENT
HYPNOTIC THREADING, VISIONS
LACED IN SMOKE, ALIGNED
WITH MIRRORED FIRE
MERETRICIOUSLY DRAWN
DEVIOUS ARTIST
SPINNING RELICS
OF HUMAN FAILURE
TRACE THE LINE INCOMPLETE

"THE EYE IS THE SUN
AND I AM ITS GILDED REFLECTION"
SUNKEN THOUGH WALKING ON
WATER
DROWNED UNDERNEATH MY OWN
CAUSTIC BAPTISM
THIS DECEITFUL ORIGIN
THIS LIBERATION IN VAIN
THIS SEED – A TRUTH
ITS SACRAMENT – A DELUSION

UPON YOUR BARREN MOUNTAIN
TRANSCENDING WASTE AND
WRECKAGE
KNITTING SILK OF NOTHINGNESS
LIES THE HALLOWED HEIGHT OF
LONGING
UNITING NOTHING
REFLECTING NOTHING
UPON YOUR THRONE OF POISONED
VIEW.
MOUNTING, A TIMELESS BEAST
ECHOES YOUR MAKER
RENOUNCING YOU
