MisandryCannon I want to say it's alternative industrial, but that doesn't seem right. Either way, it's really fantastic.

Budapest 05:47
She wears her heart out on her sleeve as bait for waiting hunters Her words as sharpened as her teeth; a kiss that killed my brothers She wears the colors that I bleed; a shade that makes me wonder just what she has in store for me Or what became of all her lovers Oh... She waits on rocks for me at sea; a song that drags me under She comes in silent as I sleep, drenched in an other's colors She is exactly what I need, and all that makes me suffer I know the depths that I have reached, and depths yet undiscovered Oh...

The Equation 05:37
I have calculated you and done the math in We equate where I end and you begin I have balanced you through and in We equate when you come out and I go in

I looked into its eyes and saw me step away The strangest voids inside me no longer at bay And when the sky was opened, nothing came through And nothing is all I will be Had the pieces fit we wouldn't be in this mess One thousand could have beens all left And when the sky was open, it followed me through No matter how many of me There will never be enough of you It's in my head and in my mind Oh...what it does to me... ...I'd rather be blind And I am undone And in my place it stands And when the sky does open, I will crawl back through And I will leave it here alone With you

It seems to be that my hunger's grown, and I can't sate it I don't believe I'm here alone Time slows down, and I am torn apart What once was so bright now infinitely dark The sun whose warming glow Persuaded me to go Is now a lonely spark on the horizon Shame on me, I let this happen And I can't stop it now Don't want to see what it does to me Time slows down, and I am torn apart What once was so bright now infinitely dark The sun whose warming glow Persuaded me to go Is now a lonely spark on the horizon

about

This album tells a part of a greater whole. A story of unknown size, of an unknown place, of unknown characters. This album is best experienced as a whole, with an open mind. The story is not just of one person, but of the growth, of darkness and of light, in all of us. To neglect it would be to neglect our own story, and to doom ourselves to enduring what these characters have endured.
