Whispered words These walls breathe the inanity of accusation And a moment of gifting passes through what was once identity So that it's dispersement surpasses even reciprocity In a movement beyond truth and falsity While well worn pillars of objectivity Collapse as if blown asunder By the blameless pawns of poets Ecstatically exhuming treasures of forgotten grace
Boreas 08:03
Such a vice, this doomed beauty Must there be an opposition to bliss? By now he had come to know his fate Eons could prove to be no harm The impendance however would prove to strike the blow The defeating hum of guilt Eros A wish within death to live as one dreams To dream as one lives
Can we transgress that sacred melody, That once lulled single selves into solidity? Can we dance and dismiss righteousness joyously, And wander and err and proceed aimlessly? There's no king of the mountain, for it's crumbled you see And no one ascends to the top of the heap, For the logic of mastery has failed miserably Let us now wander, lose (our)selves as we dance We'll light a pyre for reality and all things dead, perchance As children we'll surface ripped loose from these millstones And mourn as we celebrate, wander and dance
Head bowed irreverently with the cold blade resting on my neck Quiet time, tow the line, a time and place for everything There is a season, a time to die And the word games end as the clock thunders by And the rain sears this pain as my streams keep running dry

Minsk Peoria, Illinois

Scattered between the sleepy city of Peoria and metropolis of Chicago, Illinois, and drawing inspiration from a remote Belarusian city that has been burned to the ground only to be rebuilt like a phoenix rising from its own ashes, MINSK is an enigmatic collection of opposites. The music is at once modern, organic, and other-worldly; songs are stirring sonic journeys. ... more
