about

I told myself that this album was going to be all new material but while sifting through stuff that was done before the big studio overhaul, I stumbled on this and loved the melody and the clean guitar part, so I dusted it off, ran it through the VS2480, rerecorded the guitars, and slapped on some lyrics. This is going to be the only track on this CD where all the synths are analog: A leftover of a bygone and failed work ethic. The lyrics in the verses and prechoruses are something that I’d been toying with and scratched out while I was in a meeting at work. “Dripping Black Fungus of Love” is an inside joke with a gay friend of mine. The idea of moist vaginas grosses him out, so I came up with the phrase in an attempt to one-up his ‘mildew vaginas’ remark and gross him out even more. In spite of the unwashed vagina reference, this song is about that common theme that these last few songs I’ve written for the album have been about: The contemplation of regret.

lyrics

Divide the flesh in twine
Piece together the shattered glass
Divine from existence the death of God
Sewn together the palms now pray
The shattered hands grasp for sand
A peace so vile and timeless
The skin displayed on a tattered sky
Destined to perish in the glimmer of your eye

Give me divinity or give me flesh.

Though the sounds of contempt contort the mind
Eternity released in a lapse of regret
Sit in silence disturbed
Agony paraded and disguised as hope

Dripping Black Fungus of Love

There's nothing left to hope for and nothing left to dream about.
When we got to hell, this is what we found.

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
