about

“And even as man comes into the world wailing, or awakes with a cry from a torturing fever dream, so too the transition from life to death must clearly be accompanied by a senseless, desperate effort whose proper expression will also be a senseless desperate cry or a wild sob”
— Lev Shestov

lyrics

WE ARE BORN AWAKE AND NAMED. WAILING CRIES FROM A TOR
TURED DREAM. TORN FROM DARKNESS, PEACE, AND SOLACE,
BY BRUTAL MEANS. I WALK THE BRIDGE OF LIFE AND NOBLY SUFFER THE SIEGE, AS I AWAIT MY END. IN AN INEVITABLE DEATH.
THIS MORTAL COIL SHALL BE RENT, I REND. I NOBLY SUFFER. LIKE BIRTH, MY DEATH WILL REIGN AND ECLIPSE LIFE’S MEANINGLESS WORTH. I’LL CLOSE MY EYES UNTO WHEN THEY WERE TORN. IN DEATH, LIKE UNTO I WAS BORN. IN A SENSELESS, WILD SOB.
