advanced analytics say one hope still remains, where the hollow, apologetic and rueful crowd the elevator... dead set for the city where we can disappear, but dead men make the path laid before us and the end is I don't answer to you, and the end is I don't feel my feelings, and the end is I don't care what you want, and the end is I don't crave a meaning anymore full speed and breaking through, they fall in front of you, crowds flood the median, they feel the beat again, again... advanced analytics say all we've known is pain, so that smile seems a little misguided, out of place... we said we would never back down to them again, but old men make for very bad soldiers and the end is I don't answer to you, and the end is I don't feel my feelings, and the end is I don't care what you want, and the end is I don't crave a meaning anymore... full speed and breaking through, they fall in front of you, crowds flood the median, they feel the beat again, again... louder, you're breaking up again, you're breaking up and the end is I don't answer to you, and the end is I don't feel my feelings, and the end is I don't care what you want, and the end is I don't crave a meaning anymore... full speed and breaking through, they fall in front of you, crowds flood the median, they feel the beat again, again...

in a truth vacuum peeling layers all away in a blink you are not one at all for the suck outward prepare silence this is going to sting heroes cowards wholesome wretched all stretched out and clean for you pull the red handle eject fallout its not in your hands if a soul revives returns for vengeance i'll see you again

Ruins 01:30
stones and more stand tall before the fall of man redefined for us repurposed and remade turrets ramparts guard towers ancient and obscene proof of all and nothing ever to repeat

YOU’RE SO WEIRD THE THINGS YOU’RE INTO MAKE NO SENSE TO THEM SO YOU FEEL ALONE THAT SOUNDS FAMILIAR WE COULD BE ALONE TOGETHER WE ARE STRANGE DISEASE WE ARE OUR OWN CURE WE CAN LEAVE THIS PLACE WHENEVER WE WANT TO WE CAN BE ALONE TOGETHER YOU'RE SO WEIRD

Grand Mass 01:44
I’LL NOT ABIDE THE HAND I STAND TALL NOW I AM THE LAST OF ME AND I GO (WHILE I CAN) I GO INTO THE AIR I GO INTO THE AIR

The one, the wayward stays Awaits our autumn days Of light not flesh remain The guns for now lay quiet I fight, I wait, I hear the awful cries I hope, I memorize my lines It's better than the end I imagined Better than the horrors I envisioned If I can feel, I will feel no more I'll show you who I am The tide, the texture burns The weight, the wild Wave the ancient flag Feel the ancients coming You run, you weep You try to wipe it clean Nice try, quite a nice try It's better than the end I imagined Better than the horrors I envisioned If I can feel, I will feel no more I'll show you who I am I can see, I can be, I am I'll show you who you are

POLES SPIN THE EARTH TOWARD ENDS AND BEGINS AGAIN TOLLS UPON THE WHOLE AT ONCE BUT PULL US TOWARD LOVE PULL US APART PULL US TOWARD LOVE STARS SPIN THE EARTH NO INTENT EVIDENT, YET PULL US TOWARD LOVE PULL US APART PULL US TOWARD LOVE COSMOS, THE EARTH INFINITE YET PULLS US TOWARD LOVE

about

Video by Kip Praslowicz featuring "Pull of Gravity" - youtu.be/NqugirgMDUg

"Less oppressive and cold than warm and poppy, this album could rock a party of dance-music fans as well as a gloomy gathering of goths." —Duluth News Tribune

"...very theatric and powerful throughout. While it’s not afraid to be catchy, pretty and even pop at moments, it never lets the listener forget that there’s something a little dark about it." —Reader Weekly
