lyrics

I fear the writings on the wall
That became my horizon

I stand behind and dare not catch
the gleam sent across

(I'm) Epimetheus
of modern days, I wallow in
pandorian gifts
And act surprised at poor outcomes
discount the brother
who blazed a path to his own bonds
titan of yore
still exists, in fragmented dwarfs

who hammer
at my forced
fort as sparks flare up,
I cower
from inscribed
and illumed sparks.

We built a wall to
build this wall,
why oh why
should it all be torn down now

To lose this generous host?
Invite the opposition?
to parley and lay out a
blood red carpet?

I rather
sustain
a banquet
of certain sorrows
instead
of a
meager meal of false progress

A meager meal that famishes into a last supper.
I prefer, instead the definite starvation the siege brings
behind our wall. For if time immemorial could change
And I could climb to see beyond it all.

I'd surmount the wall to see beyond, but would see,
That beyond is but death, disorder, the downtrodden.
I'd tread upward and burn underneath a sun that is too close,
bemoaning the absence of shadows.

I would see all the truths
In writing and illumination

I rather
sustain
a banquet
of certain sorrows
instead
of a
meager meal of false progress

my system could never have processed

about

Omnicide Bern, Switzerland

Founded in spring 2010, Omnicide quickly began to write their own songs. In the beginning of autumn, the band recorded their first three demo songs.

In 2011 Omnicide succeeded to represent Switzerland at the W:O:A 2011.

The debut LP „Risen to Ruin“ was released in October 2012. No matter what the future holds, there will be many more highlights for sure.
