Banished 10:47
Barren. hollow. desolate. Burdened by the weight of emptiness and failure. I thought I heard them whisper.. "Come home to us and sleep once more blanketed by stars and breathe again the air uncorrupted and tread upon the footpaths of those you've cast aside. Wade into the waters flowing, winding never to contemplate these cursed thoughts again..." This is sorrow. This in no way defines us. How can we be so careless? The vision is calling, is piercing our hearts. We cannot dwell here idle while this violence goes on. Banished. Driven out of existence. A curse upon the earth. Always under the banner of progress and feigned elevation. Know that this culture will dissolve. It is the natural conclusion. This cannot persist much longer. One day we'll build upon the ruins of this dead world.
Traced back. Followed to the root of our violence and destruction. Our culture devours our home and renders listless our bodies til death-urge prevails. Our linear perception closes doors strangles the truth, subdues the primal in all that lives. This is not who we are. This. is. not. Not one of us was born for this, yet who among you seek the pyre that's burning in the distance? The wildness in our hearts. The blazing torrent we're immersed in is failing, diminishing. Blighted by corruption and consumed. Down below this concrete prison, dying yet always enduring remains a resistance to this endless cycle of production, consumption and spiritual rape. Tear down every last prison. Open all cages and disrupt the current. Bring down all institution. Rip up foundation and love as you used to.
Silence 09:40
Wandering ever further. Gathering momentum unrestrained. There is no telling when we'll remember. Or if we will at all.. Doomed to fall. Fall into darkness. Fade into darkness. Only a vague memory will then remain. Embrace the absence of chaos and the silence and the ruin that will follow. Some say it was our destiny. All that you love will perish before your lifeless eyes. You say you never saw it coming. You say you'd have tried to stop it. I don't believe you. I don't believe you. I will not listen to a single fucking word. Not a word. Not a word.
ever you seek to rein in wild abandon and the spirit of the untamed i am taking every measure to fill my lungs with quiet; rare and free whispering.. there are voices upon the air calling to us in a language we've forgotten all ears tuned to the humming of industry and by its gallop we'll be haunted not with the birthing of ideals will we be faultless nor in the carving of symbols will we ascend not with the birthing of ideals, not in the carving of symbols we have created a state of endless hunger it is the nurturing of illness it is the blurring of wildness and chaos the embodiment of alienation a blatant monument to selfishness it can not go on like this; it can not last and everything will vanish in its wake as our shadows are wreathed in a dimness growing more vague, growing thinner clouded and distant and the last of hope fades into a black smoke of decay take what's held dear silence its thunder dampen the breadth of its essence to subsiding color take what you hold dear bury its flame under the yawning grey ashes wielding your sorrow
