about

We are discontinuous beings, individuals who perish in isolation in the midst of an incomprehensible adventure, but we yearn for our lost continuity. We find the state of affairs that binds us to our random and ephemeral individuality hard to bear. Along with our tormenting desire that this evanescent thing should last, there stands our obsession with a primal continuity linking us with everything that is.
A man can suffer at the thought of not existing in the world like a wave lost among many other waves, even if he knows nothing about the division and fusion of simple cells.

Guitars, beats and synths recorded at home.
Vocals recorded at Norbert's home.
Mixing and mastering by Bence Nagy at his home.
Cover art by Gideon R. H.

Special thanks to: Bence Nagy (Belle Belle), Gideon R H, Norbert Kristof, Máté Magyar (the boy and the tele) and Lóránt Keresztes (J Mono).
Love to my family and friends.

Track Name: Ears of Wheat
sit on the edge of bed
noone can see you.
defer your presence
white and small

gather fire
lay the cold air in my ears
never too close not to cut off me

i know what i’m doing
on the tillage of anger
i’m just counting my ears of wheat

a hay bale of pain stabbing my lungs
a hay bale of pain squeezing my heart

i know what i'm doing
Track Name: Unshod Hooves
this is what i found
a leaden seal’s roaring
a futile despair
just go back to sleep

horses came up here
their hooves are pounding
so close and heavy
fills my anatomy

i know it’s not your fault
but mine and it’s for you
i shout in the chimney
it’s healing us they said

but how could we cure this
when someone’s always
trying to bite through his own neck
Track Name: The Sermon
god’s breath go through me
and it goes down to my stomach
sloshed around and my stomach
spoke in a whisper not a shout:
she comes

god’s blood flows through me
and it flows down to my lungs
sloshed around and my lungs
spoke in a whisper not a shout:
she’ll stab you

god’s fear goes through me
and it goes down to my stomach
sloshed around and my stomach
spoke in a whisper not a shout:
you shall outlive this war
Track Name: Forever = End
imagine a real despair
can’t wipe the sweat
always just compare
my moves are dead

i’ve never seen you in shirt

so long
Track Name: Eyetooth
blinding light of faith
like a canvas on me

have to take rest
and find any sense

counting in my head
and start it again

soil drinks up my thoughts
i’m so grateful to you

now i slowly
sink on my knees
your truth your lies not mine
and i don’t understand

my legs are empty
not able to walk

counting in my head
and start it again

find me and free me
please free me from this

now i slowly
sink on my knees
your truth your lies not mine
no
i don’t understand
Track Name: A Balcon of Milk / A Basement of Paper
a balcon of milk
a basement of paper

i had no choice
the choice came after

crawling on glass
like a prayer
you think i’m blessed
and it’s safer

cut out my tongue
tear off my hair
cut off my limbs
eat up my flesh
Track Name: The Knife Slices Itself
sing above my voiceless clay
places no longer separate

drowning in milk
give the lie to me

fishes in the net
we won’t starve again

i got the knife
which slices itself in half

bad will would drive
me to close my eyes

legs get numb
stare like a child i’m out

it’ll all be mine
soon the dark will hide
