Scapegoat 05:45
Oh, dearest procreator, dear predecessor Dear swallen father Dear next to kin I won’t repay you I shall deny you I won’t revisit you I won’t repay you I shall deny you I won’t revisit you Oh holy mother.. Make me forget about this Oh heathen Sensei Make me sleep away this dream Oh holy mother Make me forget about him Take it all, take it all off.

(uN)Kin 04:11
Slow and depracating We move in stages Don’t let the old man kill my vibe Moving slowly Self-deprecating Don’t let the bald man kill my eyes Burn down my phobia Take me to Dracula Bring me a spatula And dig a hole for this old fart Old and cold and fearless (I don’t need you now) Borderline, dark and hopeless (I don’t need you now) (Don’t need you now, can’t feed you now) To all the ones that you have jaded (I don’t need you now) To all the faces you mutilated (I don’t need you now) To all the times that you have faded (I don’t need you now) To all the times that you have disintegrated (I don’t need you now) To all the dreams that you disfigured (You disfigured) To all these hopes that you have withered.

Oumar 05:51
I’ve lived beneath portals Suns colored with a myriad fires The waves, the waves...resemble those... Of vast obsidian caves Breakers, rolling reflective skies Mixed enigmatically Powerful symphonies that seem to flee There I lived In voluptous calm Where waves..they roved as vagrants Naked eyes, doused in fragrance Aeons I dwelt Beneath vast porticoes Stained by sun... stained by sea I was a light ..that came to set you free. I’ve always known we’d meet in Eden We’ll be alive and above all, breathing Beneath the earth and heaven sent Hardly time to make amends They’ve come to take you home.

about

"Bloodlines On Ancient Skin" relies on a more organic approach. It was written mainly on a mandolin which was used throughout the recordings. Analogue synths, live drums, piano and experimental violins steer BIINDS into different sonic territory.
