Track Name: Sequela
Snellen’s chart
Meant nothing
These holes
Forever unfilled

Gas lamps
Dimmed lower
Degloved to
Scrub off the braille


Sheared apart
Corrected
Those holes they
Serve no purpose

Aphotic
Existence
The light
Is not our answer

Falling
Down
Failings
Found

Giving
Up
Livings
Lost

Your old wounds
It’s control
It’s weak

Pull me out
I’m drowning
I’m meek

Arrested
Decay, shards
Of glass

Such tinder
To render
The gas
Track Name: Scrivener
My life

Starts today

My life

Is my gift

Your lungs are
Steeped in brine
Dessicate me
With this breath
Your soul is
Not a smithy
Track Name: Nossa Senhora de Fátima
Alone
We’re lamed
Starved cries
Til parched

Jointly
We live
We thrive
We’ll die

Acting as one
The power to
Reveal the three
Secrets of Fatima

Our lives are
All for naught
This blade is our
Only God
Track Name: Molyneux’s Problem
Whoever loathed that loathed not at first sight
Tendrils of yellow reveal a false light
This dust, it bends and distends in my eyes
A connection avert to crumble a guise

He
Sees
Me
Now

I
Will
Hide
His sight

From
Him
So I

May
Thrive

I
See
Him
A

Man
With
Two
Skulls

This
Can’t
Be
True sight

I’m
Lost

You’re with me
Or against me

There’s no doubt
Take my hand

Hesitation

They
Will
Know
My
Name
Track Name: Sola Fide
Vessel
Am I
To your
Dogma

By faith
Alone
Drink from
This cup

Sweet
Like
A love
I
Never
Felt

Saturn’s
Tears will
Fall from
Your mind

What
What is
What is this?
Track Name: Pareidolia
Gray
Everywhere
Epimetheus
Becoming

These lights
Dimmed
Sleight my hand
Dark

This gas burns at different rates
Your life now on a wick
Pendulous lamps will always sway
From ropes too thick to nick

Filthy
Petty
Annulled
Existence

I
Will ravage your
Meager
Persistence

Wetwork
My best work
My passions
Begotten

No one
Will help you
Your life
Forgotten
Track Name: The Dirac Sea
Eroded
Planes
Symmetry
Breaking

I chose
This life
A marble
Shaking

To destroy
You must create
Things will change
But never gone

You can’t begin
To postulate
That which dies
Will never spawn

Collision
Of two things
What I crave
To make anew

Iambic
Diatribes
My only choice
To build this flue

The deluge you’ve conjured forth
Will return you to the mud
I see both flows of time
I see both flows of time
Track Name: A Falling Blade has no Handle
I didn’t want to do this

The light
Is
Coming
Back

You made me do this

My light’s
Not
Coming
Back

I could change but I wouldn’t
I’ve wanted to do this
