nyctophilicsunbath(prod. by 7th galaxy)

written and performed by stranded

prod. by 7th galaxy

vocal sample:

is the breaking of the shell
that encloses your understanding


i was just thrust
from an altering husk
a dark mutation
i race from dawn
to meet dusk
death that walks
longing for blood
i insert my straw
and draw what i want
drown in the countless
monsters i hunt
not at all long ago
not resorting to dreaming
an entire world
swirled into being
i wandered forward
headed toward the zenith
but before i reach it
it must be accepted
that an immortal
doesn’t receive credit
for the performance of breathing
i am absorbed by the evening
a moth
arranging thorns full of reason
flits about
above a vortex beneath him
frozen fast
trapped in an intangible photograph
what’s the future
to a man
for which
devotes his past
when nothing remains
of his planet
but smoke and ash
stuck on a plane
that he cannot hope to crash
the former world
nothing more
than shards of broken glass
sharper than
a snake-headed whip’s
unholy lash
loosed upon the realms
the darkest spells
could not dispel
the sheer beauty
his thoughts beheld
he peers
through a gnostic veil
and sees much
that the false would tell
most of which
would not cross the shell
the bubble in which
he sits
to watch this hell
untouched by its ghastly flames
other than what is felt
via empathic gaze
periodically blinded
by chronic blasts of rage
but even when he regains his sight
the wrath remains
not so easily forgotten
a lasting stain
the shadow
this light casts
is grave
a massive grave
buried so deep
the tone’s a key
that can’t be played
a ball hitting the ground
before approaching the catcher’s range
a pitch
too low to be ascertained
what do you know
of such a class of pain
could you endure
suffer through the war
all sides of which
wish to be your truest form
to get to the eye
of the feudal storm
not realizing
how futile
their use of force
for each one of the combatants
is YOU of course
all representing something
you choose or want
the participants will only fall
if that is what you TRULY want
many times
it would be just as difficult
to reach out and touch a unicorn
but difficulty is not synonymous
with the impossibility
of your ability to accomplish shit
don’t be a sissy
when you encounter
adversarial disadvantages
push through
do what you must do
when there’s a barrier
to get to the other side of it
don’t fail to acknowledge
the wealth of esoteric knowledge
that may very well
be buried within your consciousness
just how long were we here
before we engineered god’s ascent
i am certain
that there were schizophrenics
before doctors lived
the spiritual
among you
may not want to hear this
but you will not forget

hook [x 2]

solar scars
no one is safe from the stars
shadows shrink away from their hearts
the pain is smart
perhaps i neglect
what makes me so dark
i watch light reflect
the concept of life and death
is taken apart
maybe it’s just me
but running away from my thoughts
would be like bleeding in the ocean
being chased by a shark
so i give you evolution
the mutation of talk
for communication
is the most ancient of arts
