1.
Hating 06:48
When the pain of hating fades There is only the relief of indifference how it grows Apathy engulfs Fresh water as it flows To my past, the sea Accustomed to the burn of salt I sip this infectious tea
2.
Landless 12:46
Weakling cannot hold the waves; The wind, the sand. Captive, screaming at the sea; Tremor in my hand. Landless Weakling, as your disenchantment grows; Buds of rage seek the sun. You are the captive, diminished at the stern; Hardened is your gaze. Darkness Forth Landless
3.
They claim majesty is in the terror you reign Hold my breath And the weak have the greatest price to pay Hold my breath With everything we watch and do and say Hold my breath They have taken the rippling hills They have plundered the fruited plain Hold my breath They have sold our souls for a dying wage Hold my breath Your critical gaze Butchers my days Your critical gaze Caught in a maze You're critical You're critical I hold my breath
4.
Does it please the chorus? I have found my own ground Does the feast gnaw us? Wrestled down, not a sound In our times we dare not stir Conviction’s missing lure We dare not speak with her breath For that would be too close to death
5.
Touch Me 08:45
Barren boughs arch over our heads Moved by the wind They bend or break Touch me Shattered numb reaction to gale or gentle breeze Don't prefer one or the other Trees withstand whims and chance Touch me Your love permeates We say the words Your love decimates We feel the twinge There is pain in being true We say the words There is pain in knowing you Lack of progress

about

Eight Bells Portland, Oregon

"Wraithlike vocals and numbed melodies hanging over pinprick prog fretwork... The pulse of ethereal '70s rock – from Pink Floyd to Hawkwind's more celestial moments... Dual vocal lines emanate from some unseen place, sometimes braided together in a conjoined plea for connection... Heartbreakingly beautiful."
–Pitchfork
