Lost at Sea 05:02
Brought up high and thrown down low Crushed by the aftermath, missed the blow Wait. Weight. Crushing weight. Saddened by the face of fate. Cleanse me with your blood I believe you died for me I’m up to no good Lost at sea You took me to a higher place and through me off the peak of grace Brought up high and thrown down low Crippled beneath the undertow Cleanse me with your blood I believe you died for me I’m up to no good Lost at sea

Cold sweat, broken scream I have this reoccurring dream You always suffocate me to death Your name is always my last breath Hands clasped together tight You hold me until I go white Disorientated in the fever My steady heart grows eager Hands clasped together tight You hold me until I go white Disorientated in the fever My steady heart grows eager ...and then again I am alone weighted down by my throat couldn’t speak if I tried left my will by the wayside Start it all over again How many times must I reset? Seems like an infinite regress That is me at my best Hands clasped together tight You hold me until I go white Disorientated in the fever My steady heart grows eager

I know this is all dead and buried but, a shallow grave is easily unearthed It's hard to suppress memories Wondering if this was what we deserved Strangled the compulsion to challenge you After all that you had done Resisted the urge to get revenge But, the blitz has just begun ...and I'll heal my bloody hands With salt, spit and sand 'cause I'm headed for you Resolute in my plans Shards of glass line the street Heels march on through the blood Serrated edge and tender meat Blistered feet march on through mud

Burden Limbs 04:04
Something hit too close to home and that's the last place I want to be The source of all my goodness, the source of all my misery I lost my faith in humanity, I found out man is just another beast With someone I love the most and someone I respect the least Thinly veiled like a bride poison bleeds on the walls outside I'm so tired of suffering these reminders of a world I can't abide Why else would I carve out hatred and dissatisfaction? Why else would I preserve aching bones in traction? I need to walk away Find myself an escape Gain some piece of mind Heard some wounds heal with time

about

"These lo-fi home demos were used to remember the songs and teach them to other people and were as such produced and recorded in a variety of ways, with little effort made to do anything but, show the core elements of each track as a sketch. With that said, there is likely an inherent intimacy within this process that could potentially help listeners better engage with the personal exploration of trauma, repression and misery documented and unburdened into these songs. Consider this an extremely advanced preview of an album we’ve yet to record, though, there is potential that the complete dozen of musical eggs may potentially be released in the meantime".

"a truly cathartic experience, one which feels much like being thrown into an ever darkening room, where all the light slowly dissipates until there is only a voice calling out in the thick black darkness, desperate to express unbearable clouding thoughts" - Gareth Watkin, Echoes and Dust.
