"To be drawn slowly to your death in a viscous pool of quicksand beneath a pitch-black sky, with no one to hear your screams, must be a terrifying experience. If an earthquake were happening at the same time, with an upheaval of stone smashing your sinking limbs beneath the surface while demons howl in your mind, that combination of experiences might resemble the sensations of this split.

Track Name: My Strength Lies Within Heavenless Plains
can you hear my call
a champion
the condemned to die
reclaim your throne
wax and wane
as you rest beneath ice
myriads led to death
in your absence
altars reek/blood screams for your
they pass judgement as they await theirs
purified in spit
her unity to the post is divine
tangled in fire
she stares ahead as it consumes her frame
is this what they sang to the falling of axes?
to the execution of orders?
the prayers carry with the wind as do her ashes
and the naught is sung again
