Track Name: Hive Song
Found you sharp&smooth
Anything you would sting, you
Who disemboweled my queen
Eaten of my progeny
It's the difference between
The wasp and bee

How rapid the needle plunges in
Now inside of me again
I made one big mistake
At your sting i sunk myself
And felt my make begin to break

Watching you now fly away
With those darkest most silent eyes
The last of my aggression now
is sticking from your side

Who'd prefer wasp to bee?
Was to be?
Track Name: Fifths
Descend unlightly into your nightly sleep
Leap from unbecoming
Defend til waking the pilot flame from shaking
Keep making light of heat

But i can feel it creeping in my bones
Seeping with a feral moan
As the light wanes so my shadow fades

We resist if anything we do
The notion of our being through
So i'll take no pains to remain unsubsumed
Do you?

This hearing, this seeing here
Smelling and tasting, mere
Thinking to feeling now

Making, creating with
These hands and plans we're facing
The final entropy of being

Before all sight dies
I'll close my eyes
Before all of these molecules
Become meaningless
I confess, i feel blessed
Oh persistence of existence
I will miss this...

Light's reflection
of life's refraction
Why not action
to seal yourself?
&why not now?
