F]ans of disquieting graveyard drift and occult basement industro-buzz should check this guy out." - CRUCIAL BLAST RECORDS

Track Name: White Lighter (pts. I-IV)
a pair of die
cast aside
double zero each roll
cigarette burns on the wrist
the hollow debt of longing


a neon cross
against black trees
the river
the hill

come home
come home
come home

blink once for "yes"
twice for "no"


A broken candle
lit at both ends
thrown away into the fire

the rhythm of wind
against the curtains at night

sixteen shades of black
unfolding into one another

a promise now broken
dried semen on the chest
a lie uncovered
exposed roots dead in the sun

end of summer
end of autum


life resentment
refusing the right to use one's legs
eating fruit out of spite

to remain quiet
like a dead gull
at low tide

the body asks for another
the shoulders, an encircling arm
the neck for teeth

deny all requests
refuse all takers

the token of guilt
the reward of regret
