about

Track 1 and lead single off of Preclusion I.

lyrics

Bright lights in my sights
Painting pantomimes
They whisper diatribes
Consummate my preternatural guise

Extensions of myself are piled high on the floor
Acting out in ways I’ve never acted before
Over time I start behaving like they do more and more
Is there a chance I could become my metaphors?

How far can they push me? . . .

They taint my brilliant lights
Dim them into pointless lines
Missionary bottom to their thrusts
I’m submissive to my Misfit Trust

I’ve become rapist effigies,
A red dressed woman on her knees,
Suicidal prodigies killing off their mental enemies,
A heart too big for its own good spilling blood over love misunderstood,
And now a Sailor eating bullets on crimson sands,
In my mirrors, who the fuck is looking back?

How far can I push them?
(How far can they push me?) . . .

Who has taken the reins today?

Currently, the band is a 4-piece, with Peter Kenyon (vocals), Jeannie Dee (guitars), Max Lewis (Bass), Zack HS (Drums).
