about

This song was actually the first one written. We started it back around 2010 or so, but it never seemed to get finished. From the start, we knew it was uncharacteristically aggressive for us. We tried to just go with that. The samples of us talking were all taken from a conversation about some nightmares we’d had that were filled with pain and sickness.

lyrics

In my dreams there's always sickness

They pushed me down
and they kept pressing
I was fighting them off
and it hurt
They pushed me down
and they kept pressing
I was fighting them off
and it hurt

They pushed me down
and they kept pressing
I was fighting them off
and it hurt
They pushed me down
and they kept pressing
I was fighting them off
and it hurt

They pushed me down / My teeth started to shatter and come apart
and they kept pressing / tiny, sandy
I was fighting them off / bits and pieces
and it hurt / strange runestones
They pushed me down / a festering wound
and they kept pressing / infected
I was fighting them off / growths of bone
and it hurt / a... a boney piece

And it hurt / a... a boney piece.
