Matt Peterson Massive soundscapes and all around awesome album! A long time coming but worth the wait!

Thanks for staying HEAVY. So many bands now mellow out over time!

Lorenzo BioNeon I didn't know this band. Now I am completely in love with them. Usually I am not a screamo lover, but the atmosphere we can find in some songs are incredible. Simply a great surprise. Favorite track: The Clocks.

el_justino This track, like so many other tracks on this album and others, is so dynamic. It takes you on a ride without any clue about where it's going. I listen to this album daily. OH - and THANK YOU for the 24bit file!!! I would happily repurchase other albums if they were ever released Hi Res. Great album! Favorite track: The Clocks.

Track Name: Permafrost
Collecting salient chains, A new pretender

You’re on the other side

Another sanity plain, A new pretender

You’re on the other side

Lost in your digital grief without the answer

And on the other side

The glitches have cornered you in without an answer

And on the other side



The sound of humanity fell away,

Fell a way you weren’t sure



Once the parting of eyelids awoke you from daydream

Translating the cure when the tone ends



Shifted focus

Took your wrists and understanding

And the clarity’s worse when the colours of the echo chambers unite

Blessed, twisted, broken reason



And the colours of the same place held you blinded red

So you blame it on the reason

To break away, break away, break away

Translating the cure when the tone ends
Track Name: Android Anaesthetist
Tapes twisting in time

This impassable scrape

Calculating your mind estate

Shapes shifting inside

This impassable scrape

Calculating your mind estate



Remote control

Like a mind ejected

Synesthesia shaping my lungs around

Let the digimeds carry you away

When your eyes become afraid to collapse



Calculating your mind estate

Is there anyone even out there?



Let the digimeds carry you away before the

Catch, release, collapse
Track Name: Human Antenna
It feels cold in place of your rust within caution exchange

With this device and my meteor to change



I consent that I cease to exist

When it's okay that I emit transmission lines



Machines watching you learn

Why should you try?

One percent of eyes

Watching you learn

You shouldn’t comply

Accident supply

It calls “Because you are...”



Buried inside your own thoughts a little faster



I consent that I cease to exist

When it's okay that I emit transmission lines

Buried inside your head a little faster
Track Name: The Clocks
Comforting sounds on your skin

The colour of within, the corner of the senses

Comforting sounds of the simulation overdrive

Pretending you’re alive while

Comforting sounds of the waves

Creating floods in the thought graves

Comforting sounds, wondering how

As the ticking stops, the enquiry

Will the final second be the Holocene



As the ticking stops and the colour ends

The enquiry (and the echo)

Will the final second be the Holocene



Inside the white scene

I left it running

But the honesty was killing me
Track Name: Luma Non Luma
The eyes are outward while looking constantly inside

An itch behind the pale distorted screens of mind

Cutting out the vague shapes from a memory held in time



Passenger of the self



When your eyes magnify

And your skull becomes a broken projector screen

Asking on repeat: “Are you sure?”
Track Name: Wounds Like Wires
You tried to place the ‘I’s among

the lines of twisted conversations you used to play

You tried to raise the light

of all the artificial suns that feed your broken memories

You tried erasing all your elegies.



Relive relief, you're human

But I'm beginning to carry your head

And the pen turns on your relief

Half human, half breathing

But I'm beginning to carry your head

And the pen turns on your relief

Barely human, barely breathing

But I'm beginning to carry your head

And then pen turns on when I become your eyes again
Track Name: Retreat Syndrome
Still, in motion

Watching some way to find a phase

The presence that pulled that night

Attuned to what a second is to pain

The way to climb the maze



You find the scope and I was the actor



Trying to swallow the heartbeat of distant conversations

But I’m an hour away from giving you air
Track Name: From The Sixth Floor
The axis of the mind like a propane disaster

Now you're part of my chest
Track Name: Owari
The potential anti-exhaustion

Untangled like butterflies in the dark of the seascapes of deceit

Torrential grey wipes it clean

Untangled like butterflies in the dark of the seascapes of deceit

We’re drenched with the cold forcing untold panic within

But these thoughts defy pulsing neon always clouding the sun



Uncut, you said “Falling alkaline”

(Lost in the words you carried away)

Uncut, you said “Falling alkaline, suddenly depend on me.”



The sequential grey, so unclean

We’re tangled in radio waves, lost in the words you carried away

Bones bathed in the cold forcing untold panic within

But these thoughts defy pulsing neon always clouding the sun


Some when

Somewhere, when I

Somewhere old, when I should

Somewhere old, when I should be here.



Lost in the words you carried away (so unclean)

Uncut you said, “Panic within”

Uncut you said, “Falling Alkaline”
Track Name: Digitalis
Silence shading the panic room rearranged

But it’s hard for me to change

While I’ve been counting down my own blood supply

Why do you want to paint the whole downfall in me?



Count the words in red across the line of your veins

Sombre thoughts crack identities

The canvas in your mind begins to split and break away

But the edge remains in perma-stain for me



Start pulling away the tendons

Take apart the action reversal

Start pulling away the tendons



And it’s the air, it’s cutting, young swallows, to radiate

And it’s the air, it’s cutting, horizon



Latching part of your itch on the art

Glass between the dirt left in your fingernails

But how far would you, far could you, take yourself

Beyond the grips of your fears



Understanding leeches under the nightshade
Track Name: Radio Silence
Signs, you say, of pulling away

You hide the destination and the harness

Mouth the name, not always the same

You hide the cure beneath the letter sideways



Wake the pain, exist and fade yourself away



Genetics calling you out again



And it's forming delay behind the untruth
