I//Arrhythmist's first single, "Skull Kid", from our upcoming EP, "Lament Configuration".


Those introspective footsteps resounded in the corridors
of my retrospective mind.
words that fade to a pale blue
made my absent thoughts resign

A brokenness untouchable; a hatred hard to stomach
leaves me drifting through the hollow air
in constant pursuit
of an arcane sky.

All earth denies the embrace,
the grasp of its fractured morale.
Still we traverse this harrowed path,
the one south of Polaris.

Breaking down these fucking confines.
We are broken, we are damned.

Here we stand at this frozen passage,
the one where you screamed your lungs out.
Just to know you're not comatose,
but I couldn't tell the difference either way.

Frailty, the dissonance.
It stabs at the fiber of your being.
As the incarceration lacerates you within.
The discord serves as a welcome dagger.
And not for one second, you stopped to think:
The penance would be golden.
To shiver at the reconciliation entangled
in the accolade.

Don't forget your mind
where your soul lost its way.
Revel in the sorrow
of your only tranquil place.
Take this dagger, and bury it within.
The sharpest blades kept you alive,
so find yourself, and give way to another.
