about

The first single off our new album, ‘Apocryphal Verses,’ ‘Timeworn’ exemplifies the more focused direction of the new album. Aggressive and unpredictable like our prior work, but with condensed atmosphere and arrangements.

Lyrically, sleep paralysis is used as a narrative device to explore nostalgic and political themes. It’s a riff on the occasional burden of being human and acquiring more past with each day.

We plan to release two more singles and videos ahead of the album’s release in 2020.

lyrics

Awoken in the midst of sleep
By either a fading memory or a vivid dream
Reaching into the darkness, I felt nothing

An omniscient presence came into being
Always sensed but never seen
Perusing depravity, finding nothing

Feeble attempts at understanding
Pull me further away from the core
Everything I have always known
I have never known at all

Collective delusions of days gone by
Paralyzing our proficiency
Lapsing into absurdity
Indifferent to our decline

Pouring over the distant past
Rusted relics and faded photographs
Sifting through the ashes, I find nothing

Every attempt to scratch the surface
Pulls me further away from the self
Everything I have always known
I have never known at all

Collective delusions of days gone by
Paralyzing our progression
Lapsing into absurdity
Indifferent to our decline
