Give me extinction, Let suffering end in oblivion. Give me extinction, Let suffering end in oblivion I flail, I grasp at some outer edge An escape, a reservoir, a hopeful ledge But, it's all just another mirage, Another broken neck, another broken heart Make me into something else Liberate me from myself I'd shed this body like dead skin But, what new horrors would that begin? Distract and drug and allay my fears Try to forget the pain but, it's still here ...And I am doomed to a misery Inseparable from humanity I just want to forget reality, I can't seem to see a place here for me I just want to forget reality I can't seem to see a place here for me Make me into something else Liberate me from myself I'd shed this body like dead skin But, what new horrors would that begin? What new horrors would that begin?

Scorched Earth grows over hope, This is the last time I'll be burned By the ladder or by the rope This is the last time I'll be burnt After all the lessons I've not learned, This is the last time I'll be burned, I can't withstand anymore hurt I can't handle things getting worse Rebuilding myself from stone I've suffered too long in these bones Burden Limbs in a broken home I've suffered too long in these bones This is the last time I'll be burned This is the last time I'll be burnt This is the last time I'll be burned This is the last time I'll be burnt ...and I won't make the same mistake again

The distance is too great between us He says he knows he’s not enough 
All these lies he tells himself 
Can’t risk to show himself to someone else Numbing his inadequacies Medicating his disease 
He’s not the guy that you must see He’s not the guy he believes himself to be Numbing his inadequacies Medicating his disease 
He’s bought into his own fallacy He’s not the guy he believes himself to be He’s not the guy he believes himself to be He’s not the guy he believes himself to be He’s not the guy he believes...

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 my hatred and dissatisfaction? Why else would I preserve aching bones in traction? I need to walk away 
Find myself an escape 
Gain some peace of mind Heard some wounds heal with time 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 my hatred and dissatisfaction? Why else would I preserve aching bones in traction?

Back in November 2019, Glasshouse's resident miserable jank brigade Burden Limbs filmed and recorded a live session at Strongroom Studios in London, which was later broadcasted over a 24 hour period via the Dutch psyche streaming network 'Supernova Sect' on 29th April 2021.

'In The Flesh' is the first follow up to Burden Limbs' 2019 debut EP 'There is No Escape' and see's the band for the first time fully-formed and armed with a new second bass player and drummer contributing to their sound in their six-member strong unit, ready to surprise you with their jarring and unsettling mammoth wall of noise.

Clocking in just over 28 minutes, 'In The Flesh' is a live recording of four raw and emotionally intense tracks, recorded in one day debuts two new songs from forthcoming releases as well renditions of the previous EP tracks ‘Hypochondriac’ and ‘Burden Limbs’.
