Reality imploding Falling towards an end Light has slowed and broken down Void is all that’s left Happiness seems strangely dressed His healing robes beyond all grasp

Cursed Banished unto the undefined space Penitent thief, impenitent thief Shame Buried beneath a flood of wine and blood Infinite grace, endless death Lost Strayed from the path of the Sephirot Peeling away, descend into shell, dried to a husk Child Mirror reflects unrecognizable face Distorted light, piercing the darkness, nothing revealed What is found can fall astray What is built can be destroyed Creed The low and the innocent die by the sword Wisdom of kings, judgement of fools Slave Bound to serve two undignified masters Ignorant god, omniscient man None more wise You nor I Doubt Culling the cubes from a festering wound Wisdom is all, knowledge is naught, truth is reviled Flesh Built of the stars forever beyond Deny thy life, deny thy grave, deny thy cause What is seen can be concealed What is scrawled can be erased None more wise You nor I Today you’ll be with me in paradise Today you’ll see glory and genocide Shadow of doubt Refuse Burden of proof Resist Question of pain Reject Logic denied Renounce None more wise You nor I

Prove to me a word Explanations deafening I fail to comprehend Chaos undefined Your mystery impossible Yet something lingers on Painting our faces a cursed shade of Grey Plastic lives becoming plastic deaths 100 years are wasted by the shore Charon’s obol weighs heavy on our tongues Speak ye of time / Relative Speak ye of light / Distortion Speak ye in fact / Uncertain Speak ye in prose / Divergent Speak to me a word Beyond the gilded page And I’ll believe it all Gnosis supersedes Your mystery irrelevant Yet something lingers on Speak ye of law / Punishment Speak ye of pain / Ignorance Speak ye in truth / Deception Speak ye in tongues / Confusion Condescend to me You arrogant master Chaos spews from a million mouths Babel crashes down Come descend to me You oblivious bastard Whispered love through invisible teeth Bible crashes down Installed under incorruptable crowns Blood stained martyrs devolve to worthless white Clawing upwards with our doom upon our backs Eris rises and plummets to the earth Droning on I grow tired of this argument I’ve been waiting For truth that’s immutable False resolve I got ahead of myself I was seeing things That made me think this could be real Will not be bound Will not be caged Will not be found Will not be named

A dark globe perverts the outmost wastes A gloom profound beckons to the deep We shrink back and cower in fear Murmur unheeded curses towards the skies We crawl away from our first scattering While the stars collapse and the planets fall like judgements What revealed all? This ocean beyond light? Who knows this secret? This creator of worlds? Perhaps He knows; perhaps He knows not Uncreated, this spark from the Earth A dark globe distorts the inmost depths Strangling back the will to destroy the gods We make of ourselves a sacrifice Kneeling, smash our skulls upon the stones We claim dominion over infinitesemal While the cosmos waits, infinite and indifferent What concealed all? This pinhole burned sky? Who knows this secret? This devourer of worlds? Perhaps He knows; perhaps He knows not Uncreated, this spark from the Earth

Stepped into the void left my ship behind Imperfect mimic of unborn men Reason commands to join you on the surface Sometimes I think I’d rather drown You You walk amongst the waves A specter beyond reproach Why Oh ye of little fact Abandon years of research Dragged into the deep by the undertow Foundering in a nameless fear Dark saltwater fills my lungs Transubstantiates into the blood Down In primordial depths Faint memory amniotic Light Filters through the womb Corroded christ arms outstretched Analyze Deicide God inside Thrice denied Made to stand trial circle of dust and hate Fatal meeting of rock and bone You feign not to show more than passing interest Draw equations into the dirt Scribe Make your absurd glyphs Your letters of obscure men Law Confusing admonition Go now and learn no more Empty space remains upon the right hand You come not to bring peace but a pen Message in the sand undeciphered still I’ve been waiting since 1543 Where Is the accuser A pharisee to crush my skull I I cast the first stone Victim of my own disgrace Analyze Deicide God inside Thrice denied

The hand of fate is a phantom limb That wields a will of obsidian Crack the ribs remove the shard Isaac bound to vivisect Hands o’er hearts fealty sworn A vein attempt to mask the wound Scar reminds identity Spilled on an altar of sand Organs sealed in canopic jars Thou livest on the bread of Ra Remove the self and take thy place Ascend to join the nameless ones Stare into the savior’s face Suffer ye the same fate Stare into the traitor’s face Suffer ye the same fate Plastic smiles locked in opposition Kicking hooves and rending tusks United only in their lust Trample all beneath blackened feet Drunken orgies held in secret rooms Disgusting writhing of ashen skin Jesus swills the blood of swine Vomits yet another platitude Plans devised to procreate To raze a child in Babylon A bastard son that none will claim Judas bred to crucify Stare into the savior’s face Suffer ye the same fate Stare into the traitor’s face Suffer ye the same fate We’ve been so wrong For so long We cannot fall Nor carry on As a dream - as a devil This face of love is merely a mask It never sleeps - it speaks forever The sins of the past are unforgiven Shape me Smudge me Dream me Erase me Heal me Scar me Praise me Delete me Touch me Doubt me Face me Deny me Cleanse me Stain me Hold me Undo me I’m ancient I’m fading I’m wisdom I’m decay I’m boundless I’m finite I’m legion I’m no name I tried I lied I tried I lied

about

Experimental, progressive metal, inspired by a lost friend, stolen from this world far too soon.

Essentially two bands playing different songs at the same time, playing interlocking parts. Extremely dense and absurdly difficult, Erased took three years to complete. Headphones advised.
