Cameron Austin Three years since this came out, and I still consider this to be one of my favorite records/bands. From the lyrics to the sound to the artwork etc, this album is one of the most cohesive and boundary-shattering records of the chaotic hardcore genre. I find it rather sad how overlooked this record was, but I’m forever thankful for this band. Favorite track: Despite this Depression.

I am a monument In a field of dead grass I bleed out innocence It rids me of the past I'd rather live a quiet life Cast myself out in the fields Men will always have to till the land to see what yields Reciprocally altruistic shadow of a man You fester on your shallow thoughts You lie because you can It's easier to say something than actually believe it Let's start peeling back some layers Maybe then our God will see us Harvest If you need an ear, call down from the river I'll be in the fields, call out to me brother But If you need a hand, you shouldn't bother Mine will crumble at sight of one of His daughters I am a monument I am just a monument
I hate the quiet times The lowly shade That brings the night Where I grow tired I’ve noticed a crack start to form small as could be and while it rains it does collect that which I give to thee I hate the quiet times but it’s all I have I’m sorry I’ve not much to give If you wish to leave, please go this seemingly wide precipice Is all I have to show Is this it?
If hell's inside my eyes So I tear them out What beauty will I be without? If dreadful flaw I will lack Let my surroundings turn to black Oh wholesome worm, climb back inside any hole you can confide Refuge from the world and all its sad people Leaves it the way it is and so I weep still No man remains an island Who's voice makes it past the ceiling No man is an island (keeping his own ground) If man can’t see life where he goes to die How can he know where his soul will lie? Oh death, are you a piece of this land? Or are you above it? Something not to be wasted away. I hear you when I sing I feel you in everything Oh death, I hear you when I sing I feel you in everything
(Covet) 01:28
Selfish lovers always grow apart and covet The same skin confines us all Covet
Im a stilled river That you called home My reservoirs are empty I'd rather be alone So if you find me Before I'm gone Know that I'm just lying To try to get along (pretender) Now the lady That's dressed in white Will drown her unborn baby My waters end the fight And if you find me And I'm alive Just know that I've been lying To try to feel contrived You're the stone Beaten down And made smooth by all I've forced you To become But now I'm dry Can you see it? Whetstone I can be the reservoir It takes all of me To build back up again Just to let you be To keep your vessel up I just hope you see that I am the reservoir It takes all of me To let someone new come in Maybe they'll be different But I don’t think they will So I gave up I prayed I’d become a stone like you I prayed I’d become a stone We’d grow dull on each other
Notice the flower I leave it there But steal a petal I feel that's fair There must be something that binds us Callous and fragile The flower and I When one gets selfish the other dies There must be something that binds us There must be something Do the flowers heed these songs of affectations What are their expectations of me? I can't seem to find time to myself now Are there more lies to tell now so I can still believe? I see you, the black dog in my bedroom You're here to take my bridegroom away from me This veil of my childhood days is frail now Are there more lies to tell now so I can still believe? There must be something that binds us There must be something Notice the flower as it's picked apart Just for the sake of some fleeting art. Forever indifferent
I feel they’re out for me and this castle I made from dirt Don’t you like it? Everything I’ve made can fall through my hands Ecclesiastical praise One day I’ll learn how to deal with this constant malaise I take a look at you like the first time from this angle you look a lot like me Everything I’ve made can fall through my hands Ecclesiastical praise One day I’ll learn how to deal with this constant malaise I feel like my skin is growing even thinner I feel like my skin is growing thin Everything I’ve made can fall through my hands Ecclesiastical praise One day I’ll learn how to deal with this constant malaise
I light a fire just to watch it burn It's a reminder of the ashes to which I'll return Familiar stranger It was a pleasure to burn My possessions, like sand, will fall through my hands What's the point of it all when He'll change my plans Try as I might I see only a man It's worthless I'll be hiding in the wine press Come down and find me angel Mock me Show me That there's something worth seeing In this place I feel is fleeting Why stay here?
Familiar stranger Face changer Naysayer Paint not in greyscale Broad strokes betray, my brother A broken mirror still shows death masked in color Oh, to be blissfully ignorant Absent Familiar stranger
Burn my body when I die (You're fine without me) Throw my ashes to the wind (You're fine) It doesn't matter where they land (You're fine without me) I'll be happier there my friend My whole life I've been searching For where I feel to be Now I've made peace with the sirens Who draw me out to sea Scatter my body Shatter my body No matter where I go I just never feel at home here O peace, laugh at me, laugh at me How bad would it be to get to the end and find out it’s not worth it? It's not worth it (And to he who scatters my body Tell no one of my will For inside me lies a glass That's far to deep to fill)
What's left of a family? At the end of the day Blood is thicker than water So we lie to ourselves and say Well we drink after one another And share a last name But what's the point of this cycle If we don't feel a thing There must be something that binds us Together as a whole For I walk outside and see a beauty That I can’t seem not to know If everything is beautiful From far away Then don’t get closer For when you turn gray You’ll lose sight of this dependence Of this stifling host How ironic is it that it’s the One who gave you life that you hate the most Because they had an obligation To make things work It’s not the seeds fault That it was planted in the dirt And what of the orphan Without another by his name Does he really have no family Even though he bares no blame For the fact that he was left here Young and alone By grace he's been given A giving place to call his own Milk seed and honey, Rob the grave Your sons and daughters Can't save themselves From being called liars Traitors Selfish Unhealthy Deceitful Callous lovers Till to your land Pay heed to the divide Crawl back in the hole In which you wish to die For if I am the river And you're the flower Despite this depression I'll put out the fire That burns the both of us And puts us back into the earth And we will live out our lives Without knowing what we're worth (there must be something that binds us) Rob the grave
