The road was long and mostly straight Any curve seemed an arc into mythic time Above a range of bare trees on the vast horizon Swirling landscapes of a nostalgic apocalypse Imbued the darkening violet-grey sky My weary driver drifts unaware across lanes As I remain silent and vaguely smile
Portcullis 04:41
Would you mind too very much Would it be so terribly bad If I looked you in the eyes Then I died like Galahad? Would it be so very wrong Would you think me horribly mad If I said what's on my mind As I died like Galahad? Should you find it very hard Should it feel unbearably sad Just fall with me through the ice And we'll die like Galahad
Ruintaster 03:06
Mystic morning thickness Clouds the failing verdant night Rending through a dew-fog Into sticky webs of light The ruin-taster catches glimpse Of stones long unsurveyed That stir a psychogenic death To leave him just as they
Ingravescent 02:58
Armoured in reverie Armed with race memory I've seen the advancing forces of our invisible enemy There, on the playgrounds of youthful summers We'll return to engage in our terminal battles To explode titanic dream machines And set fire to the sky To lift high all the dead who yet still yearn to die So rise up, and away, on a river of victory Bob forth and drift on through the murk of infinity Towards that dark liquid hollow of magnetic sleep Sinking in slow orchestral movements Unendingly deep Into that eddy of being, and never having been Into the arms we all spurn, then go back to again
One last thing Before you go There's something I thought you should know At least I thought I did... But damned if I can think of it That's alright Never mind There's no need for me in wasting all your time Digging up the past... But hold steady, hold fast Just right then Just right now Just one moment, though I don't know how I'll find my words and tell... But then you up and left as well Perhaps one day I'll think of you When the sky's some bright insipid blue And I'll shed this presque vu... But I still won't know what to do


Being a collection of previously unreleased outtakes and heretofore unfinished fragments, variously written and/or recorded over the past decade, and finally brought together here into a certain form of fruition.

It is hoped the present assemblage will clearly demonstrate that not even the passage of great periods of time can prevent bad music from attaining its ultimate realization as the only good noise.
