Track Name: The Black
The Black

She turned to her husband and spat in his face. Then raked her nails across his cheek, tearing off a large flap of skin that revealed his scaly, lipless mouth and small razor teeth. He peeled off the rest of his facial dermis, presenting his full head in all its gory glory, shining and throbbing like a hemorrhagic cyst.

The Black beneath
The Black within
The Black unfolds
To take us in.

In a moment of psychic meltdown she shrieked at her husband. And he suffered an immediate form of catastrophic spiritual dystrophy as she tore off her clothes to reveal no body, just The Black beneath - a void that sucked all colour and life from the world into a whirling vortex.

The Black beneath
The Black within
The Black unfolds
To take us in.
The Black. The Black. The Black.
