about

The first full album released under Johan Ess, whereupon many ponderings of the end times and other tasty yet sometimes obscure tidbits are proffered forth for only the most sympathetic of ears.

Track Name: Vertebral Column
ATLAS
unit... square with... all vertices at integer
points in cartesian plane is called cell
AXIS

on the other hand consists... of a longer body
CENTRUM OF THORACIC VERTEBRA
a disk of spongy bone, a disk of spongy bone
SPINUOUS PROCESS

relatively large neural passageways
less incidence of nerve compression

COCCYX
SACRUM

making the lumbar level a good one for spinal tap

the spine is a plate for the human fate
you can bend it you can stretch it you can follow it home
with a hand full of dice you've got what it takes
and for all the effort we'll call it a day

well the whole damn thing is in the works
but we're through with most of the dirty work
so let's rip out our spines and
trample em night and day til the cows come home

til the cows come home

well most of you people would call me a weirdo
but all the other weirdos i know don't play guitar
they stab others in the vertebral column with knives

well the whole damn thing is in the works
but we're through with most of the dirty work
so let's rip out our spines and
trample em night and day til the cows come home
Track Name: Aghori Love Chant
she is the alpha female and its no surprise
her looks blow away all the others in my eyes
she is more effective than a pill of cyanide
if the devil was her ally its certain god would die

i'm a shameless junkie and its no surprise
the square root of existence is a negative prime
the builders of this paradigm have no morality
it is only human to pull the plug and make some tea
Track Name: Thief
it's the age of deceit as i choose a seat
in the fully interactive society
it seems that i know more about famine and war
than the polka dotted lovers at my core

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
and it's looking like i have a little more space to fill... yeah

i'm a thief i'm a little weak when it comes to things
snatch some spice or a little oil but i'm not from the east
a klepto whore go to a store leave feeling like a rich man
grease my beard with stolen beer twenty rings on one... hand

i cloak myself in black as i go through stacks
of perversive and precarious papers
a feeling deep inside causes my to sigh
how hairy they look as we get straighter

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
and it's looking like i have a little more space to fill... yeah

yeah

washing off a gold chain as blood goes down the drain
in a public bathroom as i reconnect my brain
a feeling deep inside causes me to sigh
it once belonged to a girl named beau

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
with the eyes of a wolf its a space that's never full... yeah

i'm a thief i'm a little weak when it comes to things
snatch some spice or a little oil but i'm not from the east
a klepto whore go to a store leave feeling like a rich man
grease my beard with stolen beer twenty rings on one... hand
