lyrics

Thud; the fading heartbeat of a dying whale, a sound that chases sleep forever, deep into the stomach of the waves that cradle a titan in its rest, a calming veil that guides it from the flesh of existence. Fathoms of night sweeping into closing eyelids, a final rush of blood runs through abandoned veins in silence. Atomic tectonics, a final repose; carbonic reclamation, respiration slows. Devoured, digested and reconstituted, jawless necks which resurrect the future. When something colossal dies, the presence it leaves behind resounds in the echoes of the dust of the depths of the world it lived inside. The worms that find their purpose in the bones of the dead, who build skeletal cities, continuing the thread. Atomic ghosts that shimmer in the dark, the echo of existence as the fragments drift apart forever. Atomic tectonics, a final repose; carbonic reformation, respiration slows. Reborn in leeches, a continuum, a root that springs in tangled strings of equilibrium. When something colossal dies, the presence it leaves behind resounds in the echoes of the dust of the depths of the world it lived inside. Our movements when in life, merge with wider tides. In death we live within those things in whom our bones reside, in life.
