Track Name: Arbitrarium
succumb to the mystery,
gaze into the eyes of the unknown.
feel its breath as the wind blows.

the earth speaks with our voices.
it does not cry sorrow
but revels in the triumph of being.
Track Name: Obsolete Boundary
seducing intention, or,
dissuading convention
or habitual attractions to the periphery
of a core whose course
carved out of will,
knows no necessity.

to find what seems to be
an obsolete boundary
or fading fort, built of dust.
where the mind meets the sea,
stands a guard made of straw,
guiding the way
to a paling palace, a familiar refuge,
serving an empire founded by you.

vacant flames
set fire to
prisons built of ash.

and relinquishing agency
will overshadow the intention
to disengage
a seance for sequiturs.
Track Name: Distant Horizon
it took a world to fall apart
to find what always stood.
we find what we had never knew was there.

(the moment waits
to be present)
the enigma of perfection
lies on a distant horizon.

a mere illusion,
a shattered shroud,
will always be waiting.

silent hopefulness
Track Name: Self From Self
we divide a mannequin
contrived to replace
interrogation.
through a mirror,
your own hands around your neck.
dismember self from self.

seeking another void
to hold this space.
to escape, i drew a blank,
a reference to a portal’s spore.
to fan the flames.
use your picture as kindling.

we drew a blank
to hold this space.
dismember self from self.
