steel tethers shiver; of hatred, greed and fear corroded in these hands once bound now valorized, severe the hour's voice is calling in the streets and in the fields to stand upright, galvanized heated in the blood of dawn revealed dancing to the song of earth as we storm the gates of heaven our deafening love screaming into the depths of raging stars as we climb into the scent of now and push ourselves beyond the necromantic core of industry and dead accumulation masterless and synergistic like waves in harmony we are all leaders now. we are not afraid of ruins with hearts of hearts unbound birthing new foundations from the ashes of the old to master and to own we will dance tomorrow on the graves of servitude and lions and take our place amongst the gods finally made real in eachothers' arms unified, synchronized in the primacy of now the once unreachable is realized in burning hands it feels like eternity I've been waiting to kiss the lips of gravity through our darkest days emerge to leave a final note upon these lonely concrete walls the door is open I'm leaving all of them behind nothing can stand between us now.
a deeper shade of colourless smoke i moving ghostlike shadowing desires the skin of sacrifice is shed and hollowed out leaving moments left and leaving, left behind abandon everything this breathless night into the iron corridor stripped like shadows dancing to the sound of naked rain beating down upon the rust of heaven's disrepair embracing, we exist on the edge of illusion crashing through the gates of transience and burning all your perfumed melodies as moments leave you cold I will keep you warm on the threshold of a kiss and slipping through your fingers emerging from oblivion the promise of life becoming all we will never be it's all or nothing invisible hands guide us through the poison fog they weave until the war is over realized and lost our tongues are tied and tired tacit and drained actuality awaits beyond the blue horizon we will assemble and enjoin after the revolution ________________ ____________________ into a sea painted in violent reds until the smog clouds settle upon the water until the words we speak find life within a living world and the end of bloodless days sprinting from shadows of our history into a battle for the heartland of the moment until the execution of actions in the centre of humanity in motion and the death of dead time.
Awakened 05:55
open wide your dreaming eyes a million breaths race heated to the light melting in this night as we explode like shells of cinder once worn with pride open your eyes and feel alive break the ice fall into uncharted waters a kiss to set the screaming sky in motion the quiet death of hope silently implodes in soundless songs awakened in your eye entrust in me all your secrets, every key some day we'll live forever hand in hand we'll walk this path with courage never looking back into the deathless smiles of waking suns into nothingness fades all the dust that held us down distant and forgotten into the deathless smiles of waking suns
overcast and mournful the limits of an endless sky came crashing down like birds with broken wings the words fell out across exhausted air scatter the cadence of betryal to the wind years of dirt upon our fingers we clawed our way ever closer to the sun stolen rifles in our hands like bare desires beyond repression we kissed and parted from the heart of infinity into corrosion and abandon burying the dreamers beneath the ruins of our youth as the air closed in around us into the resurrection of restless sleep we walk in numbered lines we dress our wounds in uniform as executioners and shadows parade themselves like heroes we kissed and parted from the heart of vision into decay burying the dreamers beneath the ruins of our youth when the air closed in around us into the resurrection of restless sleep as they parade themselves like heroes the limits of an endless sky come crashing down like birds with broken wings how shall we live now? how shall we live now? courage brothers, sisters forward in struggle
cities of gold standing still decades in a vaccuum frozen in transformation products of our time we stand inside this voracious process sentries to the core of the divide blurred replica in a garden of smoke across the fields of mourning call out your name! (remember who you are) cry out into the our fingers welded nothingness to an ever distant sky our lust pushes us we are suspended in the wake to the borderlands (of negation) of steel and silver obliteration shall be our poetry it's in you it's in me hold on tightly don't let this dead wind drag you away into the eyes of elysium when will we stand together, why do we stand apart? when will we stand together, in the shadow of a restless summer || ?
quiver and tremble the ties of blood are rotting away rising from our slumber to end these walls this is the time and place outcast and homeless (you and I) beyond the fences of enclosure brother, sister in dispossesion we all stand together hereafter tied with totalizing binds side by side our fates cannot be divided by their borders we are all outsiders here leave ignorance in ruin break ranks like sugar glass together we breathe together we fear together we awake the passion in one anothers' eyes _____ hereafter tied with a single thread of cordage side by side common dreamers we cannot be bound within their confines we are outsiders here we are indivisible break down the barricades elaborate forever in the now we will shine even as the ravens and the vultures fade into night.


The 4th release from The Silence Industry. This time The Silence Industry can be heard refining their unique sound which combines elements of post-punk, industrial, noise, dream-pop, psychedelia and goth-rock. "The Edge of Illusion" is a reference to our dispossession and our struggles to overcome it: a theme that runs throughout the release.


released January 5, 2009
