Decay 01:48
Sincere in insincerity Surrounded by false decay
2.
Judas 02:40
Through the auger Dancing in the teeth of the vice Stolen grip Flesh upon gear To your daughters And the hidden ones who make the nails I can barely lift up my arms Worn into powder Forced into gums Scorch the earth for what had to be done A line on every tooth into a crest on every bone A noose to protect my neck It will work I'm sure Circumventor Great destroyer Sputtered and died A line on every tooth into a crest on every bone
3.
Strangelove 02:39
There's a chain around the ankles of the world All our lives are only nails in earth Every rat had the arrogance To think they'd see the end Knotted in filth, Drowning under dead weight The conceited belief That you'd deserve to die In some self-made armageddon of shame At least I'll cease At the peak of human misery Nothing but the best for me There's a chain around the ankles of the world All our lives are only nails left in earth Every rat Every rat
4.
Hex 02:02
A new resurrection Comes over everything Strung between my teeth Hanged Scatter me The mountains are millstones To die with dignity At least there's purpose here, Absolution Then choke it down Feel the vacancy Breathing out your bones Tethered across the stomach Fall into fear and pour it out Choke it down Feel the vacancy Breathing out
5.
With a mouthful of sand With a tongue like ash In a void of language and lack There is a gnawing rot at the heart of this A shallow grave for us It is a sickening creeping act And it will never be enough for any of them With a mouthful of sand With a tongue like ash In a void of purposeful lack There is an ember lit at the heart of it Despite the failures of all the rest And the uncounted mass of clamoring dead

about

This ‘party-mix’ of an EP was written, recorded and assembled ad-hoc and intermittently in 3 countries over a 3 year period. While the intention always remained consistent, the band took on a few names and line-ups on its journey from conception until the final form presented here. During this period these recordings were pieced together within the limits and available resources of that place and time, and as a result, this collection of songs is somewhat a Frankenstein; a sum of the various studios, instruments and personnel attendant to each track. It is also an honest reflection of the incubation period that steared the project from an idea to a real-world, performing and recording entity. All the core people involved along the way have long been good friends and contemporaries, so it is perfectly fitting that the crystalization of this band and recording should play out in the place where it all began - Wellington, New Zealand. Haere mai te kāinga.
