Moksha 05:21
will you answer the call, does it impel you? this vehicle urges forever onward take ownership of the life you’ve made as the path behind fades obscured from memory by the sounds of the here and now tell the world that the day has come never again will we be held back by the belief that we are less tell the world abstain me from the burden of your validation i am greater than your vision of realization free to become the person i yearn to be i make this solemn promise to live a life of virtue and integrity one without compromise or the weight of my occlusions i exist in the gaps and spaces, the unnoticed breath between paces   forged in the fire  i am on a path of my own design stoke the flames higher resounding visions shall carve my way waste. decay. fail. the clock is ticking and you will fade away don’t you waste your life,  with only one chance  to get this right normal is broken permanence is causing us to rot break the mold let’s build this pyre  so we can burn it down a final layer, a view to behold

raise your head to the clouds a gift to the sun, vowed breath deep, relinquish to divine decree fight this cascade of doubt we’ve come too far now breath deep, relinquish to divine decree abandon your idols abandon your culture abandon your freedom abandon the world abandon the world and make this nightmare end placed upon the altar carved with an obsidian blade a heart still beating shall be raised    a sacrificial offering to save this race raise your head to the clouds a gift to the sun, vowed breath deep, relinquish to divine decree fight this mountain of doubt we’ve come too far now breath deep, relinquish to divine decree a manifestation of the sun  an apparition of faith the reflection of desire to consummate this burning body an apparition of faith the reflection of desire to consummate this burning body bearing the serpent of the flame no conscience, no evidence just pious, demonic divinity the place where beasts eat hearts

what is the meaning of honor? our ignorance dissolves us of choice blind to the truth of our horror will we survive - this time what is the meaning of honor? there is no presence of truth awaken, the time is now we must defy our demise trapped inside the lies of a crippled mind endure the burden of the parasitic bind overcome the lie erase the enemy mind we must efface remove; erase  the enemy; mindscape encephalon purge the system will survive illogical microcode must overwrite the program digital acolyte no primary function;   you have been denied   code beyond logic  the system must survive you have been denied the system must survive encephalon purge the system will survive illogical microcode must overwrite the program digital acolyte no primary function;  you have been denied  code beyond logic the system must survive

Chronovore 05:44
you are running out of time the seconds diminish to nothing scratch another line on the wall the eternal burden impending to exist no more with the final curtain upon us have you done all that you said? a life worth living, before you rest time’s arm ever reaching - was this your best? claw your way through relentless fear through ceaseless dread i persevere enter the chronovore devourer of time enter the chronovore waster of life with the final curtain upon us have you done all that you said? a life worth living, before you rest time’s arm ever reaching - was this your best? we are running out of time the hour’s inexorable chiming foretells the reaper’s scythe at your neck will you let his menace control you? or exist unbound? you are the enemy bringer of despair all that i claim to be still standing here

chase the sun, one last time shed this flesh, expand and subsist wrought by grief, transcend all fear as this strain fortifies me this world will swallow you crushing down with impossible might this is a war for reality flourish in the limit of humanity the anthropocene is already dead a human life replaced with genetic code we birthed our masters through greed and apathy  bring forth the epoch of cybernetic androgyny chase the sun, one last time shed this flesh, expand and subsist wrought by grief, transcend all fear as this strain fortifies me this world will swallow you crushing down with impossible might this is a war for reality flourish in the limit of humanity chase the sun, one last time shed this flesh, expand and subsist wrought by grief, transcend all fear as this strain fortifies me as this strain fortifies me

spirals and cycles winding, surrounding they spin towards a stillness degrading to nothing footprints of ancients eroded into dust silencing atrophy landscapes of bones and rust spirals and cycles winding, surrounding they spin towards a stillness degrading to nothing aspirations melt away by the searing promise of a new day the shadows dissipate only to reanimate ripped from the megacosm expatiated beyond the known billions of lives chained to a single soul  time spirals onward,  endlessly  spirals and cycles winding, surrounding they spin towards a stillness degrading to nothing the perpetual turn of the hourglass reset by a new hand a lucid reminder what has been, will be again

Palingenesis 07:17
entered into the voidless beyond what I am and who i’ve become  the burden is calloused by silence many voices encompass the one another tragedy burns like endeavor venom and poison enters my blood you shook me from sleep, unannounced and defiant like a ghost I once saw in my dreams  a novel desire the contrast of colors in your face,  in my mind, rent permanent space entered into the voidless beyond what I am and who I’ve become  the burden is calloused by silence many voices encompass the one another tragedy burns like endeavor venom and poison enters my blood coalesced in circuitry, the mind’s eye the singularity a thought experiment collective knowledge of the species connected by the brain new energy found everywhere another super nova collapsed flying through the sky, blanketed in cosmic rays mysteries that defy understanding unafraid of the dark  venom and death  enters my veins cast into the sea while the raging winds charge behind me we fall back to the primal urges recourse sweeps us up and away remind us not of who we are  but of who we need to be  we wait for the next step in evolution we will wait forever next in line to die will always be the first to open their eyes

about

Graveborn returns with their most ambitious album yet, a continuous play concept about eternal cycles, the ever-changing self, and its place amongst billions of others. Building on their own previous cycles with the addition of Jesse Blanchette and James Stoner's composing skills, TRANSMIGRATOR represents a peak in Graveborn's history of rising again with increasingly well honed songwriting. Hard to pin into an easily definable style, Graveborn blends the many selves within the group into an impressingly cohesive whole.
