tim neave This is the record I have been most looking forward to in my life, and as a fifty year old thta is a lot of cool records. Khamsin do it for me tho. Music all well and good, but I like Joyce, Kandinsky, Herzog, Derrida... and I find the same energies here. |And bikes. I do clearly love this band.

Track Name: Firstborn
I never meant to be the firstborn
I couldn’t avoid it--
Was it enough to share our blood?--
It’s all up to odds and chances

They’ll call out every name in-time,
We'll have to line up the right way
All I’ve done is set it wrong--
Never sensed lost sense--thought I’d understand by now

Are we coming of age?
Are we passing the blame?
Can we reconsider and reform,
Loose our grips and reset the score?
Are we passing the time?
Are we reading off lines?
It’s nothing more than the blind leading the blind
So just let me see clearly

All my words were yours to speak
No breath to call your own
There's so much left I haven't told
Oh, G-D, these shallows left us feeling cold

It’s another face saved--illuminate the blank slate!--
All-synthetic false prophet, wouldn’t guess we ever got it
Iridescent fake face, incandescent disgrace
So dense, sixth sense, precognition in the aftermath

Are we coming of age?
Are we passing the blame?
Can we reconsider and reform,
Loose our grips and reset the score?
Are we passing the time?
Are we reading off lines?
It’s nothing more than the blind leading the blind
So just let me see clearly

<Never thought I’d be, never thought I’d be it, never thought I’d be your firstborn>
<Don’t wait passive in a fate I can’t see>
Track Name: Old Fang
Lay it on me one-by-one
I can hear every word you say
Distract me, unmoving
You’ll turn around and forget you said anything

Lay it on me
You’ll never say anything

It burns your throat
But you speak anyway
When no one’s around to hear
You act like it’s all the same
With that old fang hanging from your lips
You’ll never say anything clearly
You’ll never say anything
Clearly

You push it all until we’re numb
And then lay yourself in your grave
Hollow, your marrow
You’ll lie there until I end up the same

It burns your throat
But you speak anyway
When no one’s around to hear
You act like it’s all the same
With that old fang hanging from your lips
You’ll never say anything clearly

It clouds your eyes
You'll close them anyway and
When no one’s around to care
You glorify your shame
With that dark mist there before your eyes
You’ll never see anything…
Track Name: Cottonmouth
"Don’t you believe me, too?”
Don't, lie to me
All my parts and pieces,
separate heart from reason
No patience, all pride
Every sister: my bride

Cottonmouth
Will your circlespeak
Tell G-D anything?
Cough it up!
I’ll tell G-D everything
Cottonmouth

Found out our streams run dry!
No substance, no mind.
It’s never seen—to never be, to never speak.
We keep our ears to the ground,
We won’t hear a sound

Cottonmouth
Will your circlespeak
Tell G-D anything?
Cough it up!
I’ll tell G-D everything

Numb your throat
Your empty words a thick, dull coat
Cut to the end, share what you’ve found
I won’t hear a sound

Cottonmouth
Will your circlespeak
Tell G-D anything?
Cough it up!
I’ll tell G-D everything,
Tell G-D everything!
Track Name: Oath
I’m dragging out
It’s compulsory
How it all plays out,
I’ll peer over the ledge and pour out what I see
It’s a shot in the dark
Lie unaware, without a care

I’ll never learn
It’s a shame to see
I spit on this oath,
While clinging onto the hope that it brings
And unravel the ends
But pray it holds together in the end

Thought I’d make it through
It’ll all be over soon,
Thought I’d come around
I thought you’d let me through

Couldn’t catch a glimpse
Made it hard to find
Heard you did exist
Were you never mine?

Tried to steer it straight
Covered in my shame
Lack of concentration
Cataract eyes

Couldn’t catch a glimpse
Made you hard to find
Heard you did exist
Were you in my sight?
Am I so blind?

I’m dragging out
It’s compulsory
How it all plays out,
I’ll peer over the ledge and pour out what I see
It’s a shot in the dark
Lie unaware, without a care

Thought I’d make it through

It’s too bright
So I’ll close my eyes
I won’t think twice
To lay claim to my pride,
To clean and cover my face
Its been all but erased

Couldn’t catch a glimpse
Made it hard to find
Heard you did exist
Were you never mine?

Tried to steer it straight
Covered in my shame
Lack of concentration
Cataract eyes

Thought I’d make it through
Equal parts are due
Never understood
Were you in my sight?
Am I so blind?
Am I so blind?
Track Name: Unveiled
And you'll see what our fathers claimed unveiled,
and given to our hands in time;
More words to find to tear down our aromatic plans

I will hide what I once loved
I will die but only once

What will you say for yourself?
I've never called your bluff
Sowing your blame like seeds
It's always been someone else

We will find what we don't want
You will die but only once
<I will die>

What will you say for yourself?
I've never called your bluff
Sowing your blame like seeds
It's always been someone else

Crimson and cobalt are clouding your eyes
From the stark concentrations of dark and the light
The sun and the moon won't clear up your skies
So put hope in what you thought you'd never find
