lyrics

There's an L-shaped corridor, leading me away from sleep. The room it leads to, full of treasure I can't keep. Audience turns to ash, air outside is burning, three lay at the table knowing all. The moth that lived, feasting on her sister's corpse, upon a broken light bulb, mercury as second course. The drink to quench my thirst brings more wood for the fire. Clouds of rust, vitriolic empire. (close eyes) She seems like she’s hardly there, yet every gesture seems so sure. Her green eyes closed, focused in another world. And then she turns to me: signs are lost, words dismantled, whispers merge. Headless man in my jacket smiles and holds back laughter. Earplugs dampen the noise, monochrome follows shortly after. Gallery of a dark place, unlikely dealt first hand. Black caped men overtake words from a heathen land. An obsession with the obstinate makes you stop moving pictures to not miss the event. Facing the risk of being loved from afar. The art of keeping harm far from yourself. Arachne dreams of death, open door to another world. Where she is what she will, free of spirit, porcelain.

about

Pinturas Negras Portugal

Pinturas Negras is the band that ended the world.
