about

This 2 song EP was written and recorded in 2016. The computer files were damaged and lost but I did not want to lose the songs and the quality playing that went into them. I am proud of the emotion that was captured in these takes and didn't want to degrade that feeling by nitpicking and re recording so I decided to release them.

Track Name: Wild Dog
Man in uniform is man evolved
With past man intertwined in his mind
If there is a center then there must be chaos
Confusing the battle with the war
Becomes the reason for preserving the self, the body, the center of the chaos
If there is a center then there must be chaos

A reason for taking up arms is needed
Or a space for exercising the beast
The only peace that exists is within the man
Whose tension has been released

Take prisoners, beat prisoners, drown prisoners
Erase conflicting ideologues
Monger, seek the comfort in conflict
Eat flesh you wild dog!

Country is skin but will lives within
Concepts interchange within the herd

There may be the most peaceful of times
But militant man turns his attack inwards

A reason for the night, a reason for the knife
A reason for the blood that spills out of another life
What is a hammer without a nail?
What is a wound that never heals?

Sympathy that rots to the spine of all who feel
Of all who feel

There may be the most peaceful of times
But militant man turns his attack inwards

If there is a center then there must be chaos
Track Name: Sickness and Strength
Where the emptiness persists unto death
The solitude of eternity
Keep yourself sick to make yourself strong
Walking decay called divinity
Convalescence consists of defeat
Pining for a holy seed
Keep yourself sick to make yourself strong
Metamorphosis of nothing

Crooked is the path of eternity
You can't control it so it controls you
Everything breaks and is integrated anew
Except you, you remain broken and in the way

Crooked is the path of eternity
You can't control it so it controls you
Everything breaks and is integrated anew
Except you, you remain broken and in the way

Where the emptiness persists unto death
The solitude of eternity
Keep yourself sick to make yourself strong
Walking decay called divinity
Convalescence consists of defeat
Pining for a holy seed
Keep yourself sick to make yourself strong
Metamorphosis of nothing

I desire cold new beginnings
I am the flesh of God wasting away
When then angels come for my body
I'll demand vultures in their place
You are the archaic writing
Of men too famished to write
When the sickness took over their skeletons
They confused it with death denied
