Track Name: Mountains
cold it was breathing
eyes pulsating
was that its body lying shapelessly on the arctic?
his eyes they saw me
what is a man but a miserable pile of secrets and lies
those temporary eyes
they saw through me
how can I be when that exists?
what did I see? no words can describe
no context, no concept, no content
no void

counting these sleepless nights, another slash
what did I see?
who am I? what am I?
Track Name: 1926
the sailors they sing
"the great old gods will rise in the east"
from the deepest corner of the triangle
the nameless city
illuminate, reanimate
hark the heralds, hear them cry
they tear their clothes, their faces wry
i am the fire and you are the gasoline
a spark is all i need to ignite this catastrophe
i'm the first, i'm the last
of what's to come that burned the past
vibrations are stronger here
you won't need a stethoscope to see me
you've known me before from your speechless awakenings
sweat from head to toe as if you swam up to the surface of your dream
my name is jonathan
the year is 1926
i haven't got much time, for I know too much
the teeth are closing in
the breath of decomposition is suffocating me
my vision growing dim as the leviathan dives
the statue staring back at me
i can't comprehend its own shape, my own form
what is real, what is meant to be
i am but an atom in the adam and the eve of our destruction
you can't outrun
the horse is on fire
i swear there was a meaning, it was here and now its gone
oh my god, what is my face doing over there on the wall
my eyes they don't belong in my head, its such a pretty little thing
fingers shaking, can't get a grip
but i know it must be done

the floor is shaking
they're coming up the staircase
but they won't see me now, they won't see me again
Track Name: Vessel
I can hear them calling
They chose me
I will be the vessel
Murder! Martyr!
I can hear them calling me to the altar
Flies of the earth
Parasites, savages
Let me out

I can see again through these empty eye sockets

Fire from the sea in the east
Bright and steaming eons its coming back
Cosmic indifference sacred irrelevance
I'll be the prophet your savior untie me now
I can hear them calling
I can hear their shadows out of time singing blasphemous melodies echoing through my cell
Let me out
Take me to the shore, let me feel the salt sting
I will be reborn, listen to their voice sing
Take me to the shore, let me feel the salt sting
I will be reborn listen to their chant
I will be the voice the one who links our worlds together you will see and everyone will know whats real

Murder, martyr

Nyarlathotep will you take this sacrifice
Strike me down and assume this form
The earth awaits.
