about

"'Weightless' burns with a righteous energy that almost consumes those that hear it...worth the effort in tracking down!" -- Rock Sound (UK), March 2003

"...[a] contagious mix of industrial rock, goth, electronica, and a slight touch of experimentalism. 8 out of 10." -- Outburn Magazine, Issue 20, Spring 2003

"...a must have album for fans of industrial, electronica and darkwave music who want music that'll make you move." -- Beneath the Icy Floe, Issue #1, Spring 2003

"...infectious, well-crafted pieces of eyes-wide-open post-modernism that you can still bounce to." -- The Sentimentalist, Volume III Issue X, Winter/Spring 2003

Track Name: We are the Hollow Men
we are the hollow men
we wear headpiece filled with straw
we play blank dirge
behind this grand facade
we scream these hollow words
beneath your artificial sky
we are the architects of nothing
to those whose dreams have died
we are the empty men, dreamers of dreams
and you with none of your own
this life is but a pang and all is one
so welcome to the show
we reach through — connection
to bleed your marrow
we sing glass reflections
now waste and sorrow
we feel you — connection
our wavelength
we seduce
we suffocate
hollowed mimics warp before you
blank upon the plank before you
dead dreams and we men of vapor
erecting longings tailor-made h
ollowed mimics warp before you
blank upon the plank before you
dead dreams and we men of vapor
erecting longings tailor-made
this is how the world ends...

and her eyes move with the tide
gun like the boarboy
fish and the boarboy
wait here wait here
for your human hound
your blonde girl smile
and it’s a little hole

Track Name: Bite the Coil
stay in
were you sleeping
were you walk down the park
in ankle rings and shady
you coil
bite the coil
it’s love god and love me
and here’s to your tomorrow
a spiking trace above the blip mark
your legend finds a place between the wires and the stains
was that you outside the grace point
sucking like a black hole pressing your sugar against the grain
slinking
around the bar grounds
where a baby loves a baby loves a baby loves a toy
come here
give me something
everything so shapeless
hapless bird
come drain your glass
we’re slipping
a spiking trace above the blip mark
your legend finds a place between the wires and the stains
was that you outside the grace point
sucking like a black hole pressing your sugar against the grain
a spiking trace above the blip mark
your legend finds a place between the wires and the stains
was that you outside the grace point
sucking like a black hole pressing your sugar against the grain

Track Name: Blessed
so sleep my dear
in this half-light angelic
this world is blessed
with your wisdom and grace
so sleep my dear
don’t let those callous cynics
wake you from our dreams of future days
i’ll be here
watching
i’ll protect you from the cold outside
stay with me
in silence
i’ll be your harbour from the chill of night
and all these years have been for this
this well-dressed devil with his charms
these ghost ships crashing at your shores
as long as both of us shall live
i’ll bring you shelter in my arms
i’ll keep the demons from your door
so sleep my dear
in this half-light angelic
this world is blessed
with your beauty and grace
Track Name: Glory
last things first
do your worst
stain the sheets two teaspoons of glory
i wanted to tell you
i wanted to trust you
i want you to take me
i wanted to touch you
i wanted to taste you
i want you to break me
and on her lips
wet fingertips and sugared sighs
these paper wrists
stained lotus hues of her demise
and honey-dripped
her nectar-sweet and lily thighs
for on her hips
the weight of all she would despise

when it’s safer and you’re still

and the scenery seems to swell
seems to swell and smell like sweetness
i ask you how it feels

Track Name: Shapeshifter
you came here
with blood on your face
adrift
a dreamer
now swallow you blushing restraint
come flow
come finger
come dirty water
dirty dirty girl sister shifter
an ageless frame will cave away
dirty dirty girl sister shifter
shifter shape
dirty dirty girl sister shifter
don’t look away it’s taking shape
dirty dirty girl sister
shifter
shifter
shape
your colors are changing
your face and the form
and you came here
a raw fist
a two-meal ticket
with your card-swipe thigh-highs
your colors are changing
your face and the form
and you came here
a raw fist
a two-meal ticket
with your card-swipe thigh-highs
you’re baptized
in dust and disgrace
you’ll milk
you’ll mother
now leave me
with stains on my face
you pull your puppet
through dirty water
dirty dirty girl sister shifter
an ageless frame will cave away
dirty dirty girl sister shifter
shifter shape
dirty dirty girl sister shifter
don’t look away it’s taking shape
dirty dirty girl sister
shifter

your colors are changing

Track Name: Stand and Fight
languishing the feral siren waits
his poison pen has sealed her fate
deception masked in soft romantic hues
beckons forth her debutante debut
of calling cards and circumstance
an invitation to the dance
this cattle call receiving line
cut down these young men in their prime
your sacred cow
your sacrificial altar
your loving flock
your lamb come home to slaughter
this is the hour
for divine intervention
we stand and fight
we stand and fight
fight – go!
and in this gutter where you knelt
the sum of all you’ve seen and felt
will lead the vermin from their beds
to feed the voices in your head
your sacred cow
your sacrificial altar
your loving flock
your lamb come home to slaughter
this is the hour
for divine intervention
we stand and fight
we stand and fight
fight – go!
Track Name: Blank Dirge
we play blank dirge
we string the cords
wrapped in china wire
we glitter on
ermine white
flecked pigment
muted hearts
simple pleasures
golden years
now gone
you never knew you wanted
so much
azaleas
and her lovely white
lovely white
lovely white breasts
and it plays for you
you played for me
i played for you
you played for me
and she’s dancing
she’s dancing
and her silence is scratching
to be let in and
it purrs
it purrs
it purrs
it purrs
it purrs
it purrs
it purrs
a whimper pushing through
Track Name: Weightless
fed on the shavings of a carved hole
it’ll suck me in
weightless
i’m a bridge for you i’m a bridge for you
suspension
weightless
fed on the shavings of a carved hole
it’ll suck me in
weightless
i’m a bridge for you i’m a bridge for you
suspension weightless
it’s here she said
around the bend she said
from the arbor to the ashbin i fell
i believed in you
yes i believed in you
but my footing just never held
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt
weightless
drunk on the swill of a hopeful mind
it’ll rip me out
weightless
a bone yard for the kicking tongues
in a forked flicker
weightless
see the girls down there
their playthings tumble
these things all need a place to drop
don’t believe in it
like i believed in it
the sinking never stops
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt weightless
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt
it never had
i never felt weightless
