about

Let us begin here: is there any reason behind love or friendships other than self-gratification? Born either from friendship, or the necessity of friendship, Brothers is our ironic self-indulgence, it is our luxury through friendship, the framework for our confused sexuality, and our sarcastic love for those who love. We are comfortable with the ragged clothes that are masculinity and femininity. Our conception of friendship, our desire for brotherhood, questions the traditional Hellenistic conception of love--is there truly a difference between agape and eros, philia and storge? Perhaps we don't desire the pleasure of friendship after all. Perhaps we desire ourselves.

Track Name: Brothers
The world that is the river
The river, changing, relentless
Divinity, found within this motion
This sacred piece of time we hold dear
Brother, whisper into my ear
Speak to me the songs of tomorrow
Brother, whisper into my ear
Speak to me the songs of tomorrow
Hold it close
Track Name: This Nausea
Look me in the eyes, give me honesty
Through this nausea, my purpose
Look me in the eyes, give me honesty
Through this nausea, my purpose
You are just a landscape, a mountain to overpass
A field to dance through, on my way to utopia
Useless landscape, a mountain to overpass
A field to dance through, on my way to utopia
You have gifted me reason
Found within the depths of my vomit, the other-- my friends
My friends
Track Name: Marching Among The Dead
Marching among the dead, the dead
Marching among the dead, the dead

This break, forever
This break, forever

Untold fictions unfolding before us.
Before us, before us, before us, before us.
Who will protect us, after all is said and done?
This landscape
So desolate
Crushing us
Crushing us

This break, forever
Desperate, forever
This break, forever
Desperate, forever
Track Name: Cold Hands
Is this life worth living?
How has this become so convincing?
Was he right, after all?
Thanatos, the last fall

Cold hands

Grasping at our necks
Holding our chains
As we pull, they tighten
As we pull, they tighten
As we drool. A reflection. Our passivity
Was he right, after all?
Thanatos, the last fall
Cold hands...
Track Name: As The Past Shatters
You will find, As the past shatters, our fears are unknown
Collapsing beneath the other, our innocence unfound.

Void, Deprivation, Insolence
Void, Deprivation, Depleted
Void, Deprivation, Insolence
Void, Deprivation, Depleted

Forms of life replenished

Among worlds torn apart, we are devoted

Void, Deprivation, Insolence
Void, Deprivation, Depleted
Void, Deprivation, Insolence
Void, Deprivation, Depleted

Forms of life replenished

Beneath this overcast we are clouded by our bleak future
taking possession of the present
It's sobering
it's so sobering...
