The story is in the story.... the truth is in the ink! ~X~

lyrics

The oddest pungent aroma, stemming from
Antique inks quaintly gifted...
each bottle more pungent than the last
Ancient vapors permeate in an array of decay
Yet still I craft memories of... shadowed remains
and feel the pull to fade from within
The heavy ether of their corked deaths
to be released once another year has passed
again as yet... they often do
Glisten... as they drop upon the page.... as they often do
as they often do.... leaving streaks of gray
across the page.... as they often do
they smear into streaks of gray... across the page... as they often do

The oddest pungent aroma....
The oddest pungent aroma....
stemming from...
Antique inks quaintly gifted....
each bottle more pungent than the last...
Ancient vapors permeate in an array of decay
Yet still I craft memories of
Shadowed remains....
and feel the pull to fade from within....
and still I craft memories of...
The heavy ether of their corked deaths... to be released...
Once another year has passed.... again... as yet... they often do....

Listen as they drop upon the page..... Glisten.... as they drop upon the page..... as they often do..... leaving streaks of gray.... across the page as they often do..... that smear into streaks across the page.... that smear into streaks of gray across the page... as they often do....
To fade within....
Yet still I craft.... memories of.... shadowed remains....
...... yet still I craft... memories of.....shadowed remains....
and still I craft... memories of..... shadowed remains....
and still I craft... memories of..... shadowed remains....
and still I craft... memories of..... shadowed remains....
and still I craft... memories of..... shadowed remains....

Dark Muse Oakland, California

Dark Muse came into being as the gutter wail of the howling banshee at the night sky, back in 2000. Prior to that, acoustic offerings were procured from the ding ding of my guitar strings in 1990. Now, I spew forth improvised sounds of Ritual Ambient whilst speaking in tongues and lay surrounded by bones in a macabre dank tomb, all the while reveling in natures lucid dark shadowy decay. ~X~ ... more
