I parade on a needle my idle feet dwell on a sting since your endearment wheedles my flattered peace into a bloodshot spring where Narcissus and Tulips bloom I breathe and break, first veil then groom nursing one, cursing the other sincerely striving from smoke into smother prig as the sparrow stops to sing barren as moss too tired to cling I incessantly hound, ever rash, ever northbound always aloof of some holier ground I ever shiver, ever quiver hustling hither, bustling thither amid your loving lucid dreams my uniqueness is arbitrary the great indulgence, the luminary it`s all pretending I am parching I am starving where you feast am I healing or annealing are you the beauty or are you the beast?
I'm sucking sadness from your guts an ugly mug that thrills and cuts bile and burden lymph and blood our surreal sermon never shuts I am the laughter in your heart as arteries narrow, feeble, tart meat that burgeons perfect art on display on coffin carts everything to be and everything to happen lives or just dies and is forgotten snaps and sighs and is forgiven rotten You are rotten and reborn You're staining leaves, sharpening thorns a feeble tongue that now adorns the hubris in your scented cries the nectar streaming from your eyes you drip I swallow feast and wallow calyx, soma, candycoma munching, crunching, suffocate everything to be and everything to happen lives or just dies and is forgotten snaps and sighs and is forgiven rotten rotten rotten rotten from the blossom to the bottom misbegotten
And I see nothing, bewildered eyes swinging across these prudish plains, everything drained How could I trade Your nectar? for gritty sands; for arid grains A handshake is the only keep-sake revoked, waving then downtrodden hands Wouldn't dare a glance not for a groat nor for a grand Oh Muse for the stars wherever you are Wherever your hands mar; absconding parallel worlds, dimensions reborn whitewards, deathwards opaque reminders still staining, refraining colliding grains, puzzling stains Abused amusements Oh Muse, amourphous your Highness Are you still up there? kissing stars fucking stars raping stars cohering scars eating stars their humble flesh covetous flesh delicious flesh astral flesh Becoming starflesh Muse meat Empress meat Beast meat One meat Let us break hearts for one another "Have a little faith", why do you shudder? Let us break our hearts for one another For "our faith is the victory that overcometh the world" Let us break our hearts for one another "Have a little faith", why do you shudder? we are the tribute, our own Last supper Let us break our hearts for one another For "our faith is the victory that overcometh the world" Let our love be the victory forsaking the world someday forever I know we can


Your head held high, your shoulders low
Your wings abandon ground and grow
From childish cheeks and a bosom so narrow
Your beauty screams, a child of sorrow

Of miracles and silent rays
Of violent grace and worthless praise
Of clotted blood and fruitless wine
Of heart and flesh put on the line
complementary parts that we shall be
God is you and me.


"I love music that makes me feel poetic. Walking around listening to Have Heart, Waste Flesh will inevitably lead one to take notice of the world, searching for the grace in it all."

"What an unexpectedly twisting and turning trip! At moments you get absolutely thunderous bass with earthquake drumming, and riffs that spectacularly blaze high overhead, with tormented howling and shrieking in the vocal department that wouldn’t be out of place in screamo. At others you get warm, moody bass tones and lilting or mystical guitar instrumentals. At other times, the music channels wretched desperation, dreaming introspection, haunted grief, or wanderings through an asylum populated by wraiths."

"Laudare didn’t simply write another post-black metal/blackgaze record here – they truly delivered some great songwriting and composition"
-Everything is noise

"I'm a big fan of Laudare. I love pathos and angst that is carefully crafted into music and lyrics to create an emotionally gripping, intense sound. Laudare does this skilfully. A confronting but beautifully dark album."
-Uncle Les Talks Music
