lyrics

Frayed at the edges of the mind and the creases of thought,
echoed in the faces of the dead and the voice of nought,
caught between the ether and the fibers, like the ink on the page
resounding wildly in the chambers of a sinuous cage,
beckoned by the ghosts of our past.

They want you to know.

Hey little brother, don't you tell me that you're better informed.
It's cold and it's lonely in the ground, ain't you glad to be warm.
These are the ghosts of our past,
and they want you to know.

Faded in the flicker of the shutter and the whirr of the gears,
the crimson and the cream grow discolored with the burden of years,
the pulp and the pigment are corroded and the flesh is unsown,
the ghost is in the filament, the ink's been drained from the bone,
windless voices of nought are crying out.

They want you to know.

Hey little sister, don't you tell me that you're better informed.
It's cold and it's lonely in the ground, ain't you glad to be warm.
These are the ghosts of our past,
and they want you to know.

Live, they are a multi-headed monster of rock, drawing sizable crowds across the Northwest and, soon, the country. Check them out now while they are playing to a hundred people rather than a thousand." --HIGH VOLTAGE ... more
