lyrics

Perennials torn from soils of birth life...
the base stems writhe in thirst-
longing for a path to trace.
In still contemplation, bereavement unveils
a sense; transcending my current body and form.

The turning wheel of life
only renews.
What once was shall
never be again.

Somewhere in a vast ocean of thinning smoke,
memories can hear my yearning in cosmic winds.
Engravings wither with the bodies they're carved in-
all that we remember is having gripped the stone.

Lusting for regression; a strange desire for a suicidal rebirth
backwards in time.
What home could conjure this? The only thing I have inhaled is the stale air of a cold prison.

The skin of our cruel vessel sheds infinitely.
The being inside it is left to sulk and rot.
Should I ascend and return to whence I came,
I would have just begun to search for what was lost.

The turning wheel of life
only renews.
What once was shall never be again.

Somewhere in this vast ocean of thinning smoke,
memories can hear my yearning in cosmic winds.
Engravings wither with the bodies I carved in-
all that I remember is having gripped the stone.

about

Alcyone Providence, Rhode Island

Based in the historic rurals of Southern New England, Alcyone aspires to merge the acrobatic and intense instrumentation of technical death metal in the fashion of Anata, Martyr, and Illogicist, with the emotive cadences and poetic lyricism of atmospheric/post black metal such as Lantlos, Obsidian Tongue, and Bosse De Nage, resulting in an abysmal yet mystical sonic canvas. ... more
