Freakalope I've been waiting for this album to come out on bandcamp for a while. Very tight playing all around. You can hear a bit of Tool influence in the instruments and the singer sounds a bit like the guy from Cog, except with much more range. They also bring their own sound at full force. Favorite track: Orbis.

Track Name: Logos
Spread your reverb out
soul's primal sound
and stir stagnant waters around
command these walls to give your ground

make this forest thrive
ignite the frozen fire
bring ashes back to life
touch and heal the blind

blood red light shines from behind
flesh veils that dim my sight
old voices in my shrine
demand the asleep to wake and rise

hit me hard again
summon storms and rain
thunder and earthquake
the fury I'm craving

there's a seed trapped beneath the ice
chants wait to be released
let them break free and cure the blight
with truth that words can't conceal

and resonate like a newborn's cry
let the world know the witness has landed
lift the shadows upon my eyes
light the torch of awareness in my head

there's a seed trapped beneath the ice
chants wait to be released
let them break free and cure the blight
with truth that words can't conceal from me

sacred verb break into my chest
fuel my engine with your breath
breach my core whispering poems of emptiness

the fruit is ripe and it's time to
surrender, let gravity take over
embrace and be womb for a new dialogue

I am open now
cast your spell and bind me to your tone
build me up like stone

engrave your note on my forehead

hit me hard and share
your knowledge, make me bare
invade the serpent's lair
disintegrate me

mother of songs come to me
grant me the golden key
allow my eyes to see
the time and place that men call be
Track Name: Orbis
BOOM! thrown out of the safe chamber like a rock off an angry volcano's mouth
FAST! a sentient projectile through the aether, a juggernaut devouring ground
loose living arrow orbiting around a blink of reality
penetrating clouds and ash to seek a fitting target for it to hit

CLASH! melodious talks of free things against the cacophonic constant cities' noise
FLASH! the sparks of industry that push the great machine and keep the virus growing
gliding like birds glide above the sea, roaming the skies of uncertainty
my route tormented by furious winds in my new found reign I'm not a king
chills, thrills, fear, bliss, skin, me, out, in

I can see the black and blue, the white spots, the golden crown
and feel the taste of the dust in my mouth
and hear the thoughts of voiceless crowds
eat all this light striking my eyes
sensorial waves assault my gate, I can't help but let them in
I don't know where I'm from or where I go

pulsing, lonely, overcrowded globe, spinning not to fall
home and prison, vessel and pedestal, for a mess of blood and stone
ruled by chaos, set free by rigid laws, the show goes on and on.

CRACK! illusions of self-control breaking down under the weight of heavy skies
OUCH! without my exoskeleton of certainty, reality turns into pain
loose living arrow orbiting around a blink of reality
penetrating clouds and ash to seek a fitting target for it to hit
chills, thrills, fear, bliss, skin, me, out, in

I can see the black and blue, the white spots, the golden crown
and feel the taste of the earth in my mouth
and hear the thoughts of voiceless crowds
eat all this light striking my eyes
sensorial waves assault my gate, I can't help but let them in
I don't know where I'm from nor where I go

I don't know where I go, does it matter at all?
crazy, lonely, overcrowded globe,spinning not to fall
home and prison, vessel and tripod for, a mess of blood and stone
ruled by chaos, set free by rigid laws, the show goes on and on
Track Name: Gaea
Here now I find myself standing feeling
for the first time suspended and waiting in awe of what's to come
for second by second I start to realize that my winter is finally gone

I move my first steps to enter the realm in your chest
to chase the hum I can't stop hearing bounce in my head
your music calls and like the ancient explorer I can't but surrender and stare

I'm in you now dancing, attuning my mind
violently you show me your laughter and cry
the hateless war that days wage on life
to keep the dreaming one from remembering his forgotten name

sunrays run through long wild hair
colours rule this staggering scene
my lungs filled with life and air

call me, take me, embrace me, make me whole

here now I find myself walking, breathing
the door of time time I crossed to recall and explore
the stage beyond the deceiving mirror I put before me to pretend that I wasn't alone

my steps mark this land while stumbling still willing
to stride and reach to tallest peaks from which to steal
with hungry eyes and pounding heart the tale of peaceful chaos painted in green, brown and red on her face

concerts overwhelm my ears, endless landscapes pull me in, love and fear unite in me

I'm in you now dancing, attuning my mind
violently you show me your laughter and cry
the hateless war that days wage on life
to keep the dreaming one from remembering his forgotten name

your call overwhelms my ears, love and fear unite in me

living harbour surround me, make me your mission to fullfil
embrace your guest with whirling leaves, cold rain, warm light, your holy kiss
Track Name: Opus
Watching, silent, passive, washed out
free space ready for the upload
taken, strapped up, tubes through the mouth
data only admitted inbound
letters, visions, words screamed out loud
cover heaven with plastic ground
labelled, numbered, place to be found
behold this new fragment of crowd

our show must go on

living products stand in line
processors filled with command files
androids of flesh don't realize
what they think is theirs is just a lie

and so goes on the farce of life
the mask they wear to amplify
the noise emitted from their minds
is shaped like a delirious smile

don't ever stop to spin clockwise
the bites of time will eat you alive
these are the rules, they're set and fine
condemned on birth without a trial

and when your reflection shows by
always avoid to meet the eye
you shall not risk to feel the drive
to disconnect your feeding wire

designed to think accordingly
to patterns made to keep them caged
they walk on, blinded by their dreams
being what they think they ought to be

gave away their own true name
for a chance to get placed

in a zoo where they feel they're safe
like birds deprived of voice and wings
the black seeds pile up into their soul
and heaps obstruct their streams

fade away their own true name
for a chance to get placed

watching, silent, passive, washed out
free space ready for the upload
taken, strapped up, tubes through the mouth
data only admitted inbound
letters, visions, words screamed out loud
cover heaven with plastic ground
labelled, numbered, place to be found
behold this new fragment of crowd
Track Name: Charya
Playing the act of life
countless actors are wearing liquid masks
shaped to convey faceless feelings and amplify their voice
persona's threads weave together all the gods beneath the flesh

one, none, one thousand interpretations of each shade of the
living reflection engaging copies of its aloneness

and beneath the dress, the core of existence fights
to break free from the curse cast upon him by stranger eyes
trying to find the way, he's supposed to be living by
squelching through the mud of his prejudice, self told lies

oh, now I see
what I believed
to be me is but
one, none, one thousand me

questioning iterations of his changing, unique being
under the weight of their answers cramble his wisdom and beliefs

about the one he thought the rest of the world perceived
and the face he pictured as the image he built for them to see
but the truth he owned was just a depicted sheet
ripped apart by one, cold, enlightening line of speech

is all I've ever known a fraud?
was I schooled to play a role?

see this face the way you decide to see
narrow tunnels of subjectivity
one, none, one thousand me

can you see my face when you look at me?
has it the same form that the mirror shows?
do we speak the same language anyway?
cause I feel so alone
do you spare some love?
Track Name: Hospes
Showing their faces frame by frame
frantic pictures keep passing by
witnesses that light a flame
set ablaze their own domain

know now, the guest's voice cannot be restrained

hush you liar can't you see that your words tear off my skin?
jigsaw ripped apart by fear, how can I stand seeing things this clear?
your voice stirs truths I won't adhere to

walk through wastelands of death and decay
die now to get born, fight and dance again

the beast now is finally awake
and there's no gate to keep you safe
from the scorning gaze of your shame
the only way out of this maze
is one that leads before your hidden face
and answers kept at bay
at bay from your wrong faith

kneeling down in a dark place, a crumbling coloss of wasted means
a crown of thorns biting the brain, a black and white mosaic of loss and pain

die now, to get born, fight and dance again

the beast now is finally awake
and there's no gate to keep you safe
from the scorning gaze of your shame
the only way out of this maze
is one that leads
before your hidden face
and answers kept at bay

the old serpent won't obey, unlock the third door, let it stray
Track Name: Arca
This emptiness I've been through has shown me things I wouldn't even think live within me
the dark night of the soul hit, and like a house of cards my world fell down and all was wilderness
I saw the face of the unsettling guest and tried to act like he wasn't there
but there was no way to avoid the test, the resonance of his call was loud and present everywhere

to help me seeing my task you firmly grasped my hand and all games were over, over

all this time I've felt like a needle had found its way into my head
that constant itch that made me want to scratch the skin off my own flesh
hunger and thirst for food and water I could not steal from the earth
free to walk blind and deaf I carried on to gain the right to rest

felt safer to stay there, locked up inside a safe
I didn't realize that no lips can kiss the child hiding from their love inside a chest

and never again I will accept to lay behind these walls of lies
and sleep through numb and timeless nights, and never again I will obey the king inside
the archetype supposed to be my very strength that for too long I left free to rule me
oppress my soul with his tyranny, never

I'll try to drop this choking mask and show my scars, to embrace my fear, let you come near, and see what happens then
lower my hands, be defenseless, and risk to drown, take on your challenge, be myself and see what happens then

we hide our inner shape deluding ourselves, thinking that this pain's what we deserve
ignoring what we share, and desperate to prevent our love from being taken away

alive and dead, enemies, friends, rulers and slaves, the children of men
bleeding within, forsaken down here, still fighting to breathe, and grant ourselves air
something to believe, some heaven to see

all these lives entangled like two snakes around a branch
that's stretching out from the eternal sacred tree

oh now I feel violent vibrations shaking the very foundations of the earth
all connected, roots and branches, light and darkness dance inside my head
am I mad?
no more judgement, spite or anger, every piece is falling into place
Track Name: Rajas
Shocking me
pushing, pulling
waves of hands rub within me
searching for hidden treasures
digging through mud and ashes

to reveal the secret word
kept within me all along

tides of new visions hit me
breaking down all the bindings
shackled by fear and doubt
I stood still to make believe that

silence was where I belonged
now the voice wants me to move

elder spirit
drop the travesty
cross the wiring
transcend limits

tired of the pit I called home
up the spiral I moved on
to face struggles and become
one with all, hollow and whole

swinging my sword, rising my shield
mastering spells and wizardry
savouring sweetness and pure peace
I'll rule my reign, become my king

to reveal the secret word
kept within me all along

elder spirit
drop the travesty
cross the wiring
transcend limits

tired of the pit I called home
up the spiral I moved on
to embrace things and become
one with all, hollow and whole

swinging my sword, rising my shield
mastering spells and wizardry
savouring sweetness and pure peace
I'll rule my reign, become my king
Track Name: Yama (part 2)
All begins to melt down before and in me
colours and lights lose their rules and boundaries

structured integrity
I leave being and delve
deep into echoings of talks between my selves
still I stay witnessing books falling from the shelves
of my mind and I see my self played trickeries

fear wears off as I know
that this fall won't last long
time has stopped, worlds still turn
live the dream of a God

I'll close my eyes and let all go
accept to die with no remorse
behold the ties dissolve and fall
into this labyrinth

and structured integrity I leave behind and delve
deep into echoings of talks between my selves

teacher, come into the light and defy silence and denial
disrupt schemes and false desire
bring me where it all begins

I'll close my eyes and let all go
accept to die with no remorse
lost in this labyrinth

structured integrity I leave being and delve
deep into echoings of talks between my selves
still I stay witnessing books falling from the shelves
of my mind and I see my self played trickeries

come, talk to me
come, say my name
Track Name: Alter
Hands and legs still tremble, tired for the long crawl (moves so slow)
I'll sit here and linger, wait for you to talk (show me more)
constant leaking, flesh is shedding blood and salt from every pore (fill this hole)

and I call your name for more, speaking words I've never known
draw your faces on a wall, picture nightmares, dreams and fall through fear and love for all

come with me now (you show up) says your voice through notes and waving sounds
let's walk the grounds (lift me up) hosting hills and swamps still to be found
let me be your guide,(rope to climb) time has come to see rather than pry
grasp my hand and rise,(through the night) how can there be death if you're alive?

is here that I belong?
can I give up this chore?
follow the forth man call and roll down through the hole

all these rules set for me since my birth, rails and locks to keep me
on my righteous path and save me from falls and straying
prevent awakening, became my family
take this costume off me and embrace my naked body
dig your pointy fingers through my poisoned chest and tear off
these cancerous lies they sewed onto my heart to scare my soul
shock me with your roar, make me uncomfortable, and force my wings to take off

ever wondered why you feel like achievements bring you nowhere?
all these myths they passed on to you, supposed to be your guidelines
scrypts of wisdom and love wrote by blind hands soaked up in blood and mud

awake and bring the language of Iamness back into your very world
the one you came from, the one you long for, the ocean beyond this jungle of words
this prison of signs, designed by the mind, to keep you complying

come with me now, let's give up this farce and be the sound
rhymes and songs for the bell of life to swing and cast again frequencies and shapes
let the eternal music leave this place, be the scream and spread once again the logos among men

listen to the silence kept too long away by this fearful self
look into the eye the other to face the gaze of your aloneness

nothing to run from, there's nothing to become
