The Rest Is Silence

Dotflac It's hard to see in those strange limbos, dropouts of the real world filled by an everlasting fog. But it's not the point, eyesight was never needed anyway.

You came here to expiate something bound deeply to your body, something terribly sad and wrong. And so the blinding haze turns into abrasive hail, lachrymal melodies turn into beautiful self-destruction, the feelings collapse and explode into reverberated catharsis. Everything was and nothing is anymore.

The rest is finally silence. Favorite track: For The Stillness Of Watching The World Through Your Eyes.
