Infamous 06:52
When I found you, covered in dirt. Resting where, you did not belong. I saved you. I cared. But you left, I don't blame you. I am dreaming awake, this nightmare won't end, flying constantly toward the ground Face first, at breakneck speed. Suddenly, I I don't know where I am This shifting reality is crashing around me I don't blame you, I was a wreck. Am a wreck too. I'm a wreck too. But when I found you, six feet underground, surrounded by those strangers. I couldn't help, but free you from. That earthly prison. That earthly prison. And plant you, underneath the spot where we said our goodbyes Where we said our goodbyes For that is where we truly died For that is where we truly died.
Bochdalec 03:38
My body is destroying itself Muscles stretching bones are breaking blood is pooling in my head Muscles expanding past their limits Bones are cracking from the strain Blood is pooling in my brain Old blood Kill yourself let the parasite live on Bite the bullet control your own fate Hang yourself, it doesn't matter anyway If you don't you'll wish for death Live a life of existential dread Creeping whispers will enter your thoughts Take a pill now You're yourself now All happy now Fear the old blood Heed the adage fear the old blood or else you will... You're no longer, a human More than man and more than beast You are an angel deformed by blood You are a god now second to none I'm a god now Took the old blood Blood is life now What have I done Celestial beings are around me I have the insight to tell I am an angel I am an old god I'm on a higher plane of existence You and I will never be the same The same
Whale 07:46
Trapped and snared between two exits Both ends lie in wait for me Sadness turning into hatred My song reaches ears of no one Scream it at the top of my lungs Lonely is the life that finds me dwelling in this ocean Lonely is the only whale searching for something tangible Sadness turning into hatred My song reaches ears of no one Scream it at the top my lungs Lonely is the love that finds me. Lonely is whats in the past now, I have what's promised in my hands. Screams of agony they haunt me; whispers from anxiety. Afraid of what I cannot fathom. Still alive but forgotten still alone but not forgiven. Last of my kind Am I alive Am I alive Am I alone (interlude) Collosal waves of guilt evenlop me Encroaching darkness is all I see Death is all that waits for me Death is all that waits for me Death is all that waits Waits.
Mayflower 04:39
You left me here, you you betrayed me, you You and I Sunk this ship With no one else In control You and I Ruined this This piece of art This masterpiece I am the phoenix, I'm born of flame. You and I Wrecked this ship With words Fired from our mouths Fire has spread to the main mast Fire has spread to the main mast This memory tastes bittersweet, it is now tainted by time.
The Depths 07:25
Only darkness. Only death. Only peace. Peace.
Vanitas 06:26
It's happening again I'm losing interest in the things I thought I had loved This dream house, this pecan tree. I am fading away this time I won't return The absurd is keeping me from moving forward what's the point of living when I know I die like everything on this earth I will fall I will fall like ashes from the sky Like all the kings and queens Like all gods have before me I am on a pedestal but I won't be for long No I won't be long I don't belong


"...The Depths is a phenomenal debut album that will stop you in your tracks both in its technicality in composition and its emotional range." Chris Tippell - Ghost Cult Mag

"Part progressive, sometimes sludgy, Ergo I Exist fuse dynamic touches to ferocious riffage, craft spacious, flowing ambiance, and do it all with the confidence of an act long established." Vincent - Nine Circles
