Track Name: Swan
Passing by the event horizon
Into the zone of sleep
Abused gravity for centuries
Spacetime torn to pieces

Bodies are designed
To hold the pain inside
Forever

Controlling the
process of
emotions
They built this for
a colony
on me

the spectral swan survives
in the mind
until death it writhes

cast it all aside
decompose
when this body declines

In dreams I wake
In the blackness of space
In death I wake
In the nothing of space

Passing by the event horizon
Into a zone of sleep
Abused gravity for centuries
Spacetime torn to pieces

Back to the source
Back to the swan
Track Name: Erased
Grey scale
Memories
From my own life
Rewrite the facts on me

Erased from society
Haven’t heard us at all
Restate the binary
With your violent norms

Solidified
Foot hold
Pacify
Withhold

Bastard
Don’t misgender me
Failure
Of a human being

Fade away
Into the lie

Fall into darkness
dead vacuum
Grasping for oxygen
In darkness

Blot out the sun
Erased
Hung by your bones

Break
Break
Expel the system rot

Poison
Robbed
Flush it all away
Decimate
The binary
Cleanse it from this earth
Track Name: Monolith
Crushed beneath the tide
Of emotions
Chest open wide

I am the planet
Surface scorched
Surrounded by ruins

My body filled with darkness
Eternal storm
Lost inside Jupiter’s eye
Razed

Eternity
Lives inside me
Watch me born from a star
Shoved dripping from a cosmic nursery

Eternity
Collapses inside me
Never never again
Look beneath our patterned existence

Monolith

Reset oblivion
My body is a black hole
Shrapnel from deep inside
We’re broken bones

Reset infinity
Reforge the ancient pathways
Sum of our experiences
Birthed anew

Let’s go
Crumbling inside
Come down
Track Name: Ruins
I
I am
In Ruins
Drifting
In Darkness
Like candles in the distance
Gone
Forever


Floating on the black
Expanse
Universe is fragments
Pulled apart forever
Lost to
The cosmic
abyss

Lift up
the sky
Fall to earth
Have to close my eyes
To expel the hurt

Awake I suffer
Asleep I’m dead
Nothing left to live for
Wish I was gone

I’m where I don’t belong
This body
I’m where I don’t belong
This mind
Devoid of my being
I’m where I don’t belong
This earth

Born
Abandoned
Rot
Consumed

Gone
Forged
Poisoned

Lost
Empty eyes
Gone

Devastation
Wash it away
The trauma of birth

Desolation
Internalize the
Promise of death

Can’t keep
Going
No more

Can’t go
Keep
Holding on

There is
Nothing for
Me

Can’t keep
Going
No more

There is
Nothing for
Me

There is
Nothing
left of me
except for ruins

Buried beneath all the lies
Is a spark of truth and a glimpse of the sky

All your worth
Is based on lies
I’m buried beneath it
Can’t find truth, so I drown myself inside
