Track Name: Inconsolable
so you've had enough
careening back and forth
between remorse and shame
but now the veil lifts
revealing all the steps
you will have to take

drawing nearer to the ether
like some bleary-eyed bereaver
pulling levers for the damned

now the time has come
for you to live the words
all the words you've learned

drawing nearer to the ether
like some bleary-eyed bereaver
pulling levers for the damned

and inconsolable

fuck your priorities
and what you think i should believe
fuck all those honey'd scrolls
you feed to the prophets
down below

drawing nearer to the ether
like some bleary-eyed bereaver
drawing nearer to the ether
like the beady-eyed deceiver
that you are

your prophet turns to me and says
we shall be free at last
but when i turn my cheek
my face gets beaten
bible black

sanctimonious fucker!
Track Name: Diamonds Into Coal
you are me and i am you
cowering in our dim-lit room
counting hours of endless days
embracing cowardice and shame

they can turn our diamonds into coal
and fill our fortress full of holes
we'll walk like shadows through the fray
while all the world is in decay

as lives occur and threats connect
wills collide without regret
we seal each other in our vault
until the world comes to a halt

they can turn our diamonds into coal
and fill our fortress full of holes
we'll walk like shadows through the fray
while all the world around is in decay

when we die, we die alone
we'll need no effort of our own
and they will savour our last breath
our legacy of malcontent

they can turn our diamonds into coal
and fill our fortress full of holes
we'll walk like shadows through the fray
while all the world around is in decay
Track Name: Nothing, More
sleepless again last night
can't seem to shake your nerves tonight
bloodshot lines in worried eyes
a roadmap to the centre of your mind
and like a hot pin through slick membrane
you can feel the heat and the pressure

but nothing more - do, think
nothing more - idle, vacant
to the core - sleep, eat, breathe
such a bore
can it be that you want nothing more

i can't wait for your next mistake
see them flailing in your wake
burned away your periphery
so you only see what you want

and nothing more - do, think
nothing more - idle, vacant
to the core - sleep, eat, breathe
such a bore
can it be that you want nothing more

you say you've got
the holiest of scriptures in your hand
you do whatever you want
on your way to the promised land

conscience is a fickle thing
but you can block out all it's nattering
so now it's one foot outside the door
you can see one step ahead

but nothing more - do, think
nothing more - idle, vacant
to the core - sleep, eat, breathe
such a bore
can it be that you want nothing more

nothing more
Track Name: The Saviour Ascends
the saviour ascends!
in every direction
beyond the world of men
beyond comprehension

fear of the perils of this mortal earth alone
was not enough make us tame
a frenzy forged out of fear of the unknown
was just the thing to make us lame
now it's eyes to the sky
for a glimpse of the divine
we can pray for guidance
'til we're out of our minds
we cannot reconcile the chasm in between
what we've been told and what we've seen

the saviour ascends!
in every direction
beyond the world of men
beyond comprehension

just watch him ascend!

holy pederast - unbridled lechery
confessed unto thyself absolved in pageantry
burn the women and tear the men apart
free will alone cannot save a severed heart
recant your sins
and recant your idle whims
still might not save you
from the flaying of your skin
once a man of god and now a god himself
his will be done by your own hand
