AS FRIEND AND FOE POSE FOR AN AUDIENCE, AT THE LINEUP FOR THE ALBATROSS, A SORRY LOT, WITH LITTLE OF WORTH TO OFFER. SCENE AND HERD, THEY’RE PLAYING SAFE, IT TASTES OF STALE, AND SOUNDS THE SAME, PUPPETS LITTER THE LANDSCAPE, TAUGHT HOW TO THINK TOLD WHAT TO SAY. THIS IS DIRECTED TO YOU AND YOU AND YOU! I’VE HAD ENOUGH OF THE ARMCHAIR AUTHORITIES WHO POLICE A SCENE, IT'S ALL SUCH A BORE! THOSE NOT IN BATTLE SHOULDN'T COMMENT ON THE WAR. CONSUME, DON’T CREATE, ALL YOU KNOW IS HOW TO BUY, JUDGING ALL FROM THE SAFETY OF THE SIDELINES! INSECURE… YOU GAVE UP YOUR CHANCE TO SPEAK! EXCLUSIVITY IS A MASK OF THE WEAK - MINDED SHEEP, YOU PUT ME TO SLEEP FUCK WHAT EVERYONE THINKS AND DO YOUR OWN THING! THE FUNDAMENTALS OF YOUR FUNDAMENTALISM! ARE NO FUN, JUST POINTLESS AND ELITIST!

THEY'RE TAKING AIM… ANOTHER GO AT THE GAME! THE REAL I'LL SEE IS SO UNREAL… ALL THROUGHOUT MY INSIDES! SINCE IT GOT BETTER JUST TO COME BACK AGAIN IN MANY WAYS, I CAN TRY TO TAKE A STAND! UNTIL I HALT THIS RIDE! IT'S NO FUN THE THIRTEENTH TIME! ANOTHER GO AT THE GAME! CONTINUE THE SEARCH FOR THE LEFTOVER PIECES OF WHAT LITTLE FRAGILE PEACE WAS SHATTERED… WHEN THE FORCE OF THE BLAST THREW ME DOWN, BATTERED THE GREY SKIES TURNED TO WHITE AND NOW NOTHING EVEN MATTERS! NIGHT AFTER NIGHT! LIE AFTER LIE! SIGH AFTER SIGH! SINCE I CAUGHT THE CATCH IN YOUR EYES NIGHT AFTER NIGHT! WHY DO I TRY? IT’S ALL A LIE! SINCE I’VE CAUGHT THE CATCH IN YOUR EYES THERE'S NO ESCAPE, ANOTHER GO AGAIN THE CIRCLE I'M INSIDE HAS ME IN ITS GRIP I CAN'T MOVE ON, CONSUMED BY THE MACHINE I'VE DON'T THINK I'VE EVER SEEN… WORSE DAYS, THAN THESE!

Epitaph 03:04
10 EPITAPH STARE DOWN HARD AT THE EPITAPH. AND WONDER WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN. NOW IT'S ALL JUST MUCH TOO LATE. THE GRAVESTONE IN THE GROUND. READING THE WORDS FOR COMFORT. WONDERING WHY OH WHY OH WHY OH WHY? ETCHED IN STONE, THE EPITAPH. ONE OF MILLIONS OF MILLIONS OF MILLIONS! WARNING LOOMS IN THEIR WORDS… WAYS FOR MAN TO SAVE HISSELF… TAUNTING YOU WITH UNANSWERED QUESTIONS; THERE'S NO WAY TO GET THE ANSWERS! CLUTCHING FLOWERS, SO FRUSTRATED, LEFT WITH NOTHING BUT THAT FEELING, LEFT WITH NOTHING BUT THAT FEELING. PASS ON BY THE EPITAPH, AND TRY TO RECOLLECT YOUR THOUGHTS, TELL YOURSELF IT'LL BE OKAY, TELL YOURSELF WHATEVER YOU WANT.

THIS LIFE OF STRUGGLE! LIFE IS STRUGGLE! WITH THE WORLD IN MY HANDS… IT SLIPS THROUGH MY FINGERS! IT KEEPS ME UP AT NIGHT? IT BRINGS ME DOWN AT DAY! A JOYLESS ROUTINE, THAT WON’T GET BETTER, I FIGHT MY WAY DEEPER AND DEEPER, THROUGH THE THICK, PAST THE FAÇADE, IT'S WEARING THIN, RUST IN THE COGS! IN THIS LIFE OF STRUGGLE! LIFE IS A STRUGGLE IN THIS LIFE IS STRUGGLE! LIFE IS STRUGGLE! THE WORLD IN PIECES, IN THE TOILET, MINDING MY MIND, LOSING MY PATIENCE, WITH WHAT I SEE, HAVE TO STOP IT, WANT TO CHANGE IT, NO WAY TO BREAK LOOSE, STEP INTO LINE IN THIS LIFE OF STRUGGLE. I'M STUBBORN AND STUCK, YOU SAY “WHY BOTHER?” THO THE PROOF’S ALL AROUND, I CAN'T SAY IT'S OVER, DREAD COMES NIGHTLY, FRIGHT TEASES LATELY, I DON'T TAKE THIS LIGHTLY, TIME COMES TO FIGHT EACH NEW THREAT AND WIN! ELSE YOU’LL BE FAILED! A TEST OF YOUR WILL, WAIT FOR YOUR TURN! ALWAYS ON GUARD - READY AND ALERT FOR THE NEXT EXTREME! IN THIS LIFE OF STRUGGLE! LIFE IS A STRUGGLE IN THIS LIFE IS STRUGGLE!

EITHER WAY, I BETRAY… A METHOD OF CONTROL… I'M HAPPY TO PLAY THE ROLE… ON TRIAL FOR YOUR CRIMES… THE GUILT IS ALL MINE… LOOK DOWN AT ME IN SHAME… AS YOU FOLLOW ME ASTRAY… THE PROPHECY IS COMPLETE AS SLAVIOUR IS HOISTED FROM PULPIT, A NAKED AND VULNERABLE FOIL THE CROWDS FIGHT FOR THE CHANCE TO CAST THE FIRST STONE. DESPERATE GRUNTS FOR BLOODLUST ECHO THROUGHOUT THE LANDS. THE HATE PROFITEERS SALIVATE AND SCHEME THE MOBS OBSCENE SCREAMS RING THROUGHOUT THE SCENE OF NAITIVITY. THIS IS THE NEW PORNOGRAPHY POST-RELIGIOUS UNITY IS ACHIEVED TOGETHER, IN LINE, VYING TO TEAR FLESH FROM BONE.

14 SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO STATIC LIFE, SAME REMAINS! RUT OF MINE, NEED A VICE! MEMORIES HAUNT ON BY! YOUTH IS OLD, UNCOMFORTABLE BUT... JUST LIKE YESTERDAY… LIKE LAST YEAR… AND THE YEAR BEFORE… AND SO ON… SAME OLD SCENES… FLICKER ON AND OFF… IN A TIMELESS 3 ROOM PURGATORY! SO WHAT? WILL PASS THE TIME WHEN THE CLOCK ON THE WALL STILL WON'T BUDGE MAKE THE CALLS, TRY TO GRAB TRY TO GRATIFY, JUST TO LOOK FORWARD TO SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO… WHEN THE ECHOS BOUNCE BACK, AND THE SOUND OF MY VOICE, IS CAKED WITH RUST, IT SIMMERS DOWN, THEN I AM CALM. THE SMOKE'S STAINED MY MIND, IT'S DRAINED MY STRENGTH. DRAGGED ME DOWN, KEPT ME TAME, AND ON AUTO PILOT... JUST LIKE YESTERDAY, AN ETERNITY, ALONE WITH MEMORIES OF COPING AS THE SAME OLD SCENES FLICKER ON AND OFF IN THIS SCARY AS FUCK, 3 ROOM - PRIVATE - HELL! BUT THEN ITS TIME TO PUNCH THE CLOCK, SLAVE A WAGE, FALL IN LINE, MONEY, WHY? I COULD BUY… ALL THE WHILE DREAM OF HOME… STRESS THE DAY, WASTE A MIND, LOSE YOUR DRIVE, TURN INSIDE, FAKE A SMILE, THEN I'M THERE, AT THE FINISH LINE.
15.
15 FINAL DESCENT SINKING AND FIGHTING TO STAY AT THE SURFACE, DROWN FROM THE WEIGHT OF A 5(+?) YEAR PROMISE, DEVISED, CONTRIVED, EVERY THOUGHT REVISED FOR AN ACCURATE RECORD OF A DEVOLUTION. DILUTED, ELUSIVE, DOUBT PRODUCED CONFUSION. AND EXCUSES CONDUCIVE TO A LAST CHANCE FINAL SPIRALLING DESCENT! OBSESSIVE REFLECTION RETAINS IMPERFECTION, AGED BOTTLED UP RAGE BECOMES DATED, STALE OBSERVATIONS STRIVE FOR COMPREHENSION, JUGGLED WORDS FOR A MAKESHIFT CONCLUSION, DRAWN OUT AND DELAYED, WHAT DID I HAVE TO SAY? THIS TRITE CONFESSION CONTINUES TO QUESTION! THE NATURE OF MY DEMEANOUR... DEMEANS MY UNNATURAL STATURE! THE STATE OF MY COMPOSURE! COMPOSES STATELESS FILLER! TO PLUG ANY BREACH IN A GIVEN SET OF WALLS! I CAN TRY AND TRY, STILL I'LL FALL, I'LL FALL! CLUTCHED, OBSCURED, KEPT OUT OF REACH FROM ALL! SICK OF TRYING, I FALL, I FALL! FALLING AND DROWNING, GASPING AND SHOUTING, I CAN’T SAY THAT I HAVEN’T SEEN IT COMING! SURRENDER, SUCCUMB TO THE DOWNFALL, AND THINK ABOUT WHAT I COULD HAVE DONE DIFFERENT! FOR THE WORST OR THE BEST, IS THIS ANOTHER TEST? I’M POSITIVE THIS NEGATIVE’S A POSITIVE? ELATED, I'M FRUSTRATION, ELONGATING DIRE SITUATIONS, CHARADES PLAY OUT CASTRATIONS, ON THE STATE OF MY COMPOSURE, IT DEMEANS MY UNNATURAL STATURE! THE PATRONS OF MY DISCLOSURE! PATRONIZE EVERY OPENED DOOR! A HYPOCRITE, MY TIDE CONCEDING, CRITICS BIDE SEEING SEETHING TEETHING FANGS SHARPENED, MENTAL HARDENED, LOST IN A DARKENED ROOM... I'LL SCRAMBLE TO AND FRO IN A GIVEN SET OF WALLS… I CAN TRY AND TRY, STILL I'LL FALL, I'LL FALL! CLUTCHING EVERY LOOSE END, NO ONE HEARS MY CALL! FINAL DESCENT, NOW I FALL! THIS IS MY FINAL DESCENT. ASCENT AT MY OWN EXPENSE. COULD IT THEN CONTENT WHEN I DISPENSE AGAIN? MY OPTOMISTIC TORMENT… IN AN UNPARELLED EXTENT… THESE INTENSE LAMENTS… ON THOSE FRAGMENTED ELEMENTS? THAT MAKES PERFECT SENSE?
16.
16 THE LAST EXTREME IT SEEMS EACH PAGE OF THE LAST CHAPTER, BECOMES ANOTHER PROLOGUE TO A SERIES OF NEW EXTREMES?! IDEALS EXCEEDED BY SELF-INVOLVED CONCEIT! AN INTRIGUING REPRIEVE, THOUGH CONCEDE, NOT CONCEIVED! THE TRENCHES OF STRUGGLE… WORE WEARINGLY WELL… AS UNSHEDDABLE SKIN IN WHICH TO WALLOW… WHEN THE LAST STRAW BECOMES THE FIRST, LIFE'S ROADS VEER LIKE A MOBIUS STRIP, THE RIDE'S DRIVE, A BOOK OF RIDDLING LIES, A SCHIZOID'S MIRROR PRODUCES PARIAHS. EXPERIENCE AND PERSPECTIVE FRUSTRATE CLOSURE, AN ELUSIVE UNHEALED WOUND, WITH NO RESOLVE. MONIKERS MOCK THE WHIMS OF THE BRANDED, BITTER, BLINDED, JUST RIGHT AND CONTROLLED. THE FRIGHTENED AND FALLEN WILL REMAIN IN AN UNEASY STUPOUR, TENSE! FOR A TARDY CLIMAX. SELF-DESTRUCTING MINIONS IN DENIAL, JUDGED, FRUITLESS, GUILTY, DISCARDED, AND FREEFALLING, ETERNALLY DESCENDING, INCAPABLE OF HITTING BOTTOM ROCKS… WHEN A DEFENSE MECHANISM SHATTERS, SCABS BECOME SKIN, SCARS BECOME MASTERS, REMINDERS OF SPITING, WORST TIMES ENDEAVOURED, WEATHERING UNENDING PERPETUAL HORRORS! THE TRUTH OF A PURPOSE IS RELATIVE TO THE NUMBER OF GRAVES DUG FOR UNREALIZED UTOPIAS. THE REWARDS OF AN EXTREME CAN BE MEASURED BY THE LEISURE AND COMFORT OF THIS LIFE’S STRUGGLE. AND SO WE SUFFER THE LAST EXTREME AS YET ANOTHER PREMISE AND GENESIS’ FOR CREATION AND SELF-DESTRUCTIONISM.

about

Finally. Head of Canadian cult-label D-TRASH Records, SCHIZOID returns with his 3rd full length of original material, a vicious album of blackened industrial noise metal. 16 songs, an hour long of decimating digital punk musick acts as the catalyst for riots, self-destruction, and achieving the next extremes of the updated SCHIZOID sound. Firmly rooted in digital hardcore/breakcore origins, yet driven by intense black/grind metal guitars & choruses of lunatic shrieks, sounding somewhere not unlike THE BERZERKER, MINISTRY, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, ATARI TEENAGE RIOT, THORNS, RED HARVEST.
