about

After a whole year of production, a year in the making, here it is, our debut EP "Windows to the Soul". Some of the songs on this EP were written 4 years ago, others as recent as 2 years back, but basically this EP is a compilation of the band's work from the very very start up until now. Thank you to every single one of our friends who waited patiently for this. We love you.

Track Name: Capital Vices
I am the eighth deadly sin

We humans have a twisted tendency
Blinded by praises for our mistakes
We can tell right from wrong
We knew about it all along

We don't realise
We refuse to open our eyes
Therefore, we fail to see
Stubbornly, we didn't believe

We are the cause of our own corruption
Destroying the life of grace within
A horrific damnation awaits
but why aren't we afraid?

With great power comes great responsibility
Why is power being abused with greed?
Liars and thieves, do not be ashamed
You and I, we are just the same

Ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you more about myself

Avoidance of exertion of any kind,
Hunger and greed, everything must be mine
I desire wealth and material gain,
Lust over love as it brings me less pain
Wishing evil upon those I dislike,
Puffing myself up with excessive pride
Mass destruction and the chaos it brings,
These are a few of my favourite things

I feel that this is my decimation
I can't seem to resemble myself with my own reflection
How foolish was I to think I could do this on my own?
Empty these bottles, break these needles, I don't wanna be alone

Just how far are you willing to go,
to rip apart everything I know?

You have to understand
that I don't give a damn
about your stupid intentions
So sick and tired of how
you push me around
As contradicting as it may sound,
I've learnt and I've found
Everything you fear and neglect,
everything you despise
are the things that make me feel alive

Cross my heart and hope to die
There will be no remorse from our side
Track Name: Apparition
This darkness in my heart
It will never go away
Your hands are going cold
Like every word you say

My face buried in my hands
as I wonder why
It has come to a point
my obsession's my demise

To my cadaverous love,
it's just a matter of time
I'll have this noose around my neck
and soon, you'll be mine

Let this be the last time I close my eyes
Let this be the last of my desperate cries

Something's wrong, my love
I'm blinded by my tears
Your gaze once brought me peace
Now I'm overwhelmed with fear

Our once delicate symphony
have become an anxious ring
From the bottom of my broken heart,
I sincerely sing...

to you, my cadaverous love,
they don't see what I see
You're so pale and cold
but you're still so beautiful to me

Let this be the last time I close my eyes
Let this be the last of my desperate cries
Who would feel sorry for a man like me, my dear?
I've wasted too many nights wishing you were here

Set fire to these walls

What have I done
to myself?
Your haunting beauty
The face of death
Track Name: Anchor
Daylight slips away
from the tips of my fingers
This heart in my chest
weighs me down like an anchor

Waves are washing me
I can no longer breathe
As I fade away,
it's weighing me down like an anchor

I only have myself to blame
for this treachery
I've given up all the strength
to fight for everything
and I have tried to find
a single glimpse of light
but all in fucking vain

And I have wasted every torturous day and poisoned nights
trying to fight off all these demons that I hear inside
Vanquished by the shame, I bury my face in my hands

Someone make this pain end

Why did I let these demons build their home inside my mind?
I hear them mutter and whisper awful things all the time
I must confess, I've lost it all, my face is on the floor

I can't take this anymore

Now I see that I've always been
The nothing I have feared becoming
A trophy lost at sea
Descending, I fear the darkness beneath me

My heart is an anchor
and I'm sinking deeper
Track Name: Falsifiers
A spineless fabrication of false tales
Intentions of betrayal, conflict
You twist the past I've put behind me
You disgusting piece of shit

I see childish desires in your eyes
I smell fear behind your disguise
Every reason to
Every reason to look down on you

Realize the failure that you are
I won't close an eye on this
I want to rip apart that filthy lying mouth of yours

Hatred swells my heart
I should've known this from the start

Self-infliction

The damage is done
Save your trivial apologies
Save your excuses
I want none of it

Now I see my mistakes on your faces
I've found lies in all the wrong places
Lie to my face, my friend
I'm not the one with blood on my hands

Fuck all the stories you tell to tarnish my name
Every single one of you, I wish you well

I will see all of you in hell

Spell out your name for me,
I'll carve it on this tombstone for your loved ones to see
So, here lies a foolish soul,
whose choices led him to a grave so fucking dark and cold
So burn

Just burn
Track Name: Impermanent Presence
Feels like a hundred years
The glass is long gone broken
False hopes and absurd pretense
My deep ugly wounds are left open

Your lies, the absence of gratitude
and my lack of self-control
Trying to deal with my loss and these changes
What's meant to be, let it happen to me

How could you say
I didn't try at all?
I don't understand
I don't wish to
I looked in your eyes
I see nothing at all
You slipped away
I've lost you

I'm lost, stuck in my own head
How the hell did I get so far away this time?
I was patronised, and to you,
I was something you could cast aside

And I know, since we parted ways,
you've found a way out, you've seen the light
I'm still trying to escape this hell
I'm not doing well on my side

How could you say
I didn't try at all?
I don't understand
I don't wish to
I looked in your eyes
I see nothing at all
You slipped away
I've lost you

I can taste the imminence of my demise
the warmth I used to feel beside me,
it's not there anymore
I am trapped in this never-ending cycle of self-rejection
I will never forget this knife you placed in my back

I never saw it coming, it came without warning
Horrid thoughts consume all of me

Still in disbelief
that you abandoned me
You could've saved me
You could've saved me from myself
I never saw it coming
It came without warning
Please bring an end to this suffering

How could you say
I didn't try at all?
I don't understand
I don't wish to
I looked in your eyes
I see nothing at all
You slipped away
I've lost you

How could you say
I didn't try at all?
I don't understand
I don't wish to
I looked in your eyes
I see nothing at all
You slipped away
I've lost you

This is my desperate shout, I can't hold on
