The tentacle shows through the fabric now.
“Beautiful humans,” He tells me.
“This is where to grow them."
He shows me a small game,
We use spears to impale them.
Tunnels and caverns; I live and inhabit.
An intelligence that calls itself “Unity.”
An underground nervous system.
I become unmoved while I absorb sunlight.
You enact total war on creativity.
Tunnels and caverns; I live to inhabit.
All sins ignored; To enact my cells.
There are others around me...
“Listen to me girl!
Your origin is unknown.
Your waste in a thousand burning seas.
Filth and desperation corrode your crevasses.
Seek nothing into the dream affairs.
Your ancestors were a plague.”
Wide open like a mouth,
Guided with nothing now.
At the mountains of madness,
My overlord has left me alone
And only I know what pain is.
Fluttering down on broad cheeks,
The planet’s winds whip against me.
Mother burning underneath the ground.
Or what I smell...
What is this?
Crashing life field,
Am I the first visitor?
The tentacle shows through the fabric now...
This album introduced me to Thou. At first I was disappointed that this was a one-off thing, but over time I warmed up to them. Now, they are probably my #1 favorite metal band of all time! Hedge Earthridge
