about

"Crawling has two opposite polarities, one is the warmth that embraces the listener, the other is a disturbing state of entrapment with no way out of darkness. It's deeply melancholic, but has a brightness that comes to the surface with each consequent listen..." - Terra Relicta

As the heart atrophies, words lose meaning. Numbness consumes. Yet in the darkest night, the flame of hope burns brightest.

The fourth chapter; crawling, is an intimate portrayal of the dark recesses of the soul: beginning in depression, losing the self, spiraling into madness and ultimately arriving at despair. To truly know one's self is to face one's most terrible demons.

crawling melds dark, downtempo trip hop with an industrial aesthetic and haunting ambience. Warm, melodic and intimate; to listen is to walk the path.

Track Name: dysthymia
deprivation
suffocation
i float face down
in a deep black sea

when i reach for you
i sink like a stone

caught
safe

caught
safe

in my dark place
in my dark place
Track Name: nightmares
sleepless
in a muddy hole at night
under a vacant house
on a silent street
in a mirror
i see faces
staring back at me
speaking silently
i search for a way out
i search for a way out

snow falls
windows open wide
a dark figure
waits outside
Track Name: the nihilist
nothing
matters
no one
cares
i think not
therefore
i am not

reason
is lost
purpose
illusion
why
am i
still here

frozen
in place
numb
in space
silent
rage

i scream
in here
but no one
hears
why
am i
still here
Track Name: dark journey
give me strength
to keep control

give me strength
to heal my wounds

give me strength
to cross the line

give me strength
to lift my head

give me strength

give me strength
Track Name: did you see death
i stare in the mirror
and hear your breath
i feel your fingers
caress my neck

my pale reflection
is all i see
as your boney fingers
claw at me

red lines appear
on my throat
when i try to scream
instead i choke
Track Name: asylum
don't be afraid it's over now
i am here it's over now

don't be afraid to cry softly
don't be afraid to let your heart break

i am here to dry your eyes
i'll be here to dry your eyes

don't be afraid to sleep softly
don't be afraid to dream your dreams
