Rikky His vibrato fits so well to the songs. The songwriting is sharp and Clara Engel sings on it! One of my big favorites of 2015. Favorite track: Antipode.

Track Name: The Carbon Of Your Delight
I would collapse into you
like a dying star
become nameless, genderless mold
on which touch can leave marks
fill my body up with resin
let me inside be cast
break open that shell, i have no need for skin
just the throb of your proximity
will keep the organs in.

I would puncture new holes
to fit more of you in
i would follow your shadows
to keep time with your limbs
let words slip out of meaning
to replace them with sighs
that i try to breathe in
when your ecstasy arrives
i will live off the carbon of your delight
i will live off the carbon of your delight.

I would cinder to charcoal
i would crumble to chalk
become the tool that transforms
your face from boy, into skin without essence
a nameless, genderless mold
on which fractal meanings dance
and only beauty takes hold.

I would puncture new holes
to fit more of you in
i would follow your shadows
to keep time with your limbs
let words slip out of meaning
to replace them with sighs
that i try to breathe in
when your ecstasy arrives
i will live off the carbon of your delight
i will live off the carbon of your delight.
Track Name: Weapons
Grief is coming for me
in a clatter of iron wings
a chorus forged in the fires of a bloody dawn.
Rivers of stone made my skeleton erode
and you may tear me limb from limb
but i would take your teeth if i had too

You may strip my flesh
of all defense
you may leave my hope embalmed
but my weapons are
concealed in bone
i will not leave this world unarmed

There is power at the bottom
there are demons in the words behind
there is power in the bottom
penetrate us and we'll rise
give me ivory knives
give me a bone stealers eyes
and you may tear me limb from limb
but i would take your teeth if i had too

You may strip my flesh
of all defense
you may leave my hope embalmed
but my weapons are
concealed in bone
i will not leave this world unarmed
Track Name: The Sparking
I would carry your bones
across darkening plains
to bring pieces of you
back home again
under that mother-of-pearl moon
under that desert sun
i would never wane
i would never run.

To be with you at the sparking
where horizons meet the sea
i would never beg your pardon
i would only beg belief
to be with you at the sparking
where horizons meet the sea
your gasps pass like luminous ships
across desires beach and i will go...

And there are silkworms hanging
by the thousand by the bough
and they are weaving me into shapes
i do not recognize now
(maybe i did once
but maybe not now)

I would carry your bones
across darkening plains
to bring pieces of you
back home again
under that mother-of-pearl moon
under that desert sun
i would never wane
i would never run.
Track Name: Antipode
You are the waters edge
i crawl around
i look for you there
only my face resounds
oh to calcify with the years
you let your raw hide
turn solid dear

Oh Antipode, what earth has grown between us?
that soil that tried to leave us
did go
Oh Antipode, for all the rocks beneath us
that joy that tried to leave us
did go,
you did go.

So take me back to shaded trees
where your leaking eyes formed the blackened years
oh to calcify with those years
you let your raw hide
turn solid dear

Oh Antipode, what earth has grown between us?
that soil that tried to leave us
did go
Oh Antipode, for all the rocks beneath us
that joy that tried to leave us
did go,
you did go
you did go.
