about

The crown jewel of this album in my opinion. ‘Perpetually Pregnant’ has a pretty awesome vibe to it, but this one has a melody that makes me wonder how the hell somebody that does the music I do came up with something that moving. Those last three minutes when the bridge starts and then it transitions to that gorgeous outro… It’s a long song, but I enjoy every moment of it. With the lyrics, I wanted them to be more honest, personal, and sincere than what I usually write so that they match the tone of the music. I etched them out in the wee hours of the morning while an early demo version of the song played on repeat and this is the result. It came off sounding kind of bitter, but there is a positive meaning buried underneath it all. This is a very personal piece.

lyrics

The vile tongue caresses the lips of god,
Tastes like deception, tastes like despair.
Wrapped in a shroud, in a blanket of dirt.
Buried in the dark, I won't ever forget you...

Why don't we dream anymore?

Come prey with me, come lie with me.
I'll swallow your agony, in exchange for more.
Black roses growing from between our eyes.
I hunger for the stars, the void living in you.

Why don't we dream anymore?

In all things we've found the blackness inside.
A texture, a touch, a strand.
Torment devised for the infinite.
Collapsed, burned and distrusted!

Control the beast that decides to die alone,
Forgiveness etched in flesh and blood.
What wicked ways we found to survive!
Cessation of sensation, for the sake of repetition.

I know why we don't dream anymore...

But I don't wanna be your stupid little savior anymore!

Age of Endarkenment Harker Heights, Texas

So why the name change? Whore was a moniker that was autobiographical, but it was descriptive of a different me. So what's left for the old Whore? Bitter resentment toward the species. Loathing. A fascination with the way deities come and go throughout history. Now that the Enlightenment is over, a new age has arrive; an Age of Endarkenment. ... more
