Blessed is the one who does not sleep.

Enter the body of a man who takes his own life and drowns. He may have escaped his slave masters, but the eternity and solitude spent after shows quite clearly that the ocean is not just sparkling lights and lack of oxygen... Body-loss, unsleep, mental decay, and eternal solitude tears at the fate of the color-bound.

In partnership for a CD pressing with Black Plague Records and Metallic Media.

Track Name: Drowned I: Stem
My legs give way into the water.
Doves shall not sing for me
Vultures shall turn their heads

Half of the body is gone
A dark sea begins to take form
I drown...

I am the one who wins.

Air tears at the color-bound
Nothing but churned black, white...

I bargain my body for eternal sight.

My last breath falls on deaf ears.
Track Name: Drowned II: Unsleep
Blessed is the one who does not sleep.

My lungs fill with water, I cannot feel this.
My sights become nightmare incarnate
Dark turns into light
Everything is one.

My mind drips secretion
I feel my visions wash away
Nothing at a loss.

I drown...
Track Name: Drowned III: Kuril Kamchatka
The man who does not question himself

will always worship himself.

I was one driven by icon and country
Now torn asunder,

my deities exit through my mouth

as parcels of thin air.

Time stands still.
I am at the depths.
There is nothing here.
I am alone.

Surronded by thoughts
I am confronted by an image
a reflection of myself

It stares into my eyes
and disappears forever more.
No longer human am I
A skin with nothing more to experience...

I drown...
Track Name: Drowned IV: Kermadec
...I drown...
Track Name: Drowned V: Mariana
I am the one who wins.

...I drown...
