Nothing Sacred

Our swan song. May it embody the absolute anger and hostility we held for everything around us, including each other.

Thank you for the memories.

Recorded/engineered by Michael Kesselring in East Stroudsburg, PA, Spring 2013.


Mind is aching
Tides are breaking
My finite forever is shifting and shaking

So sick of living dream to dream
This waking life is killing me

With the salt of my bones
In foreclosed homes
I'm euthanizing my every wish

So come and take me as I am
If I can't love me, no one can

Biting back with loosened teeth
Your revolution is lost on me

"In my head" is not a home
But a plot for me of silt and stone

When I can't weather another day
A struggling sigh, I'll fade away

Whispers of wind as I stare in the black
The air escapes me from stabs in my back

Shadows dancing on the edge of my lips
Suicide grips tight to your finger tips

Clawing for the will inside me
I'm full of ash, the well is empty

Taking aim with a broken bow
Bury my head and death will grow

The window pane is calling to me
Reflecting memories that consume me

"Enduring lover with trust of gold,
Don't bring to bed what you cannot let go"

Nothing sacred.

No Hereafter.
