about

This album was the first professional-sounding group of songs I put together. I did most of the keyboard/guitar bits at my place and recorded the drums, bass, and vocals at Tin Drum Music, studio of the amazingly awesome Burleigh Drummond.

I played all of the instruments and wrote the lyrics, with Burleigh helping me out on the mixing and mastering.

I hope you enjoy it!

Track Name: There's Only Heaven
Endure, the other cross I bear, I know not how or why
In beating on beneath my skin, it leeches swelter sigh

All in able over mind
I, on wither, understand
Ever of a mere

Far to the north, there’s only heaven
Into the sleeps, the horrors sate like sorrow sifting feral fetal love

On alter ankles splitting down, the paler sings the soft
In healing on beneath my skin, it fingers silted clod

All in able over mind
I, on wither, understand
Ever of a mere

Empress substance, martyr reveler
Breathing rippled hate
Able endless, Battered deeply
Filled on higher gore

Here, bask in remedy, all the widow-wisp incites is idol white
Here, bathe in memory, all the motion-craving fools feel pregnant light

Far to the north, there’s only heaven
Into the sleeps, the horrors sate like sorrow sifting feral fetal love
Track Name: Ageless in Servitude
Breathing in the intrepid air, I hear Aidred’s voice
As I look towards the sound in denial

Reeling under the impetus, a siren in heat
Sings her sating song of beastly enchantment

Infesting agents bleed from her pores
Subtly reminding none can escape her

I pour out like so much feeling, needing
I pour out like so much needing, heaven, heaven

Beating ankh of virility, my heart yearns for her
Such an iridescent voice, I’m enraptured

Eyes awash with her almond-onyx impassionate form
I see not the loneliness she is bound to

Infesting agents bleed from her pores
Subtly reminding none can escape her

I pour out like so much feeling, needing
I pour out like so much needing, heaven, heaven

Onward empress, feeless the whore, sells her substance
To the purest
Endless hatred, blackens her soul, eating, feeding
On this loveless song

The light
Is dying still
We haven’t long
‘Till hell requites

Fleeting feelings, cured and debased, she wants nothing
More than pleasure
Stale conception, gored by the child, twisted insect stalks
Impale her seed

The light
Is dying still
We haven’t long
‘Till hell requites
Track Name: Your Indignation
Sorrow snow welt decay
She of love leads the way

But feeling alone as the dryad greets her mate
He yearns for nothing save to sate

Some infesting feast of fear
And with milky eyes ablaze with lust she tears his soul apart

What breeds your indignation?
What lights your dark again?
Is it the hand caressing your flesh?
I know not why

Sweetly plucked from the day
She of love lives to play

But as he watches her strange and cruel rebirth
He understands her hollow mirth

Some unfeeling sickly saint
Reveling broke her ruptured heart
And with milky eyes ablaze with lust she tears his soul apart

What breeds your indignation?
What lights your dark again?
Is it the hand caressing your flesh?
I know not why
Track Name: Such is Seething
Pale, appalling
Unyielding, lost in belief
Mends his hands on with his god as someone’s savior
Knowing not his hatred, lust and human love repressed
Such is seething

Lurid lecher
On with the sermon
Takes it all upon his heart, this learned soul
Crooked fingers pointing upwards towards eternal bliss
Such is seething

From the darkness he did crawl
Mother, father, lost to time
What to do, he did not know
As the warm surrender breached his mind

From the darkness he did crawl
Lapping up the light of fools
He would give himself to god
Somehow knowing death is not the end

Self-effacing
Gored by his wisdom
Doesn't care to understand the human weakness
Honey of the creed, he feeds upon the hollow pear
Such is seething

Clinging, needing, can we not forgive

Ah just leave me be
I don’t know, nor do I care to see
What lies beneath the eddy blind
Give to me what little love I know
Ah
Track Name: This Evensong
Oh God
I can’t take it anymore
Such bliss
Ever wet by heaven’s plate
Pleading
Unto it who does not feel
I fear
Seething sin of my design

Of locust tryst
And timelessness
So alone

Yet I couldn’t see the sorrow in her eyes, such is the craven creed as
I am just a fool, a stupid, worthless, empty, self-indulgent fool

All intrepid sate
What God hath borne me to this
Ere this evensong
Recalls all that I’ve loved
In a life derelict

Breathing
In a pollen pox allure
I choke
As the seething satyr sighs
Feel it
Subtly pouring out of
Love impure
Seething sin of my desire

Of locust tryst
And timelessness
So alone

Still the ballad broke the bane of mucous milking all the song within my lungs,
for she’s a body fleshed, a hollow soul with naught beneath her skin

All intrepid sate
What God hath borne me to this
Ere this evensong
Recalls all that I've loved
In a life derelict
