prepare ship for ludicrous speed

from by false colours



from the debut full length Excess and Design


consider this a sincere warning, start adding up your sins
and bury all your innocence alive beside the embers, the gospel of torment
with everything you know embedded and forgotten
just show me where to find mercy on this page
sound the alarm over doubt’s ascension
we’re losing ground with or without His name

so take these razorblades and learn to swallow
embrace the aftermath
we will show the world the truth behind god fearing eyes

watch us ignite the kerosene that binds
the bitter end, unveil the witness safe within lest we forget
grey skies will sing of bullet-wounded wings
signal defeat and justify release

guide me through this lurid council, shelter me from disdain
this sacrificial fashion is more than we can evade

please tell me WE create the “truth”
we are not devices, we are not their fuel


from excess and design, released November 4, 2012
