Nonce 00:59
Nonce Lyrics: No rose of mine So sweet and divine Could cull me from the Devil's clasp No angel of mine With hazel for eyes Could stop drawing my forlorn bath So sleep tonight So you can shine bright Too soon mother will pass Then sleep for your years So you won't drown in tears

Mutineers 04:35
Mutineers Lyrics: I am the future not anchored to a past Traveling with an Even keel on a full ballast Here and there Now and then We get I am beleaguered Besieged but unaware Battling without the armament A fist of hair Here and there Now and then We get off There is no future Without the homes needing leaving For promises worth keeping Cutting throats of the sleeping We get off Fill me With innate leprosy Call ahead Let them know I'm coming Cut the cord We can't afford To further forget what's already ignored They all shoot to kill Stranger still The sickened love story that befell Nurtured by science A lovely alliance Nurtured by Panacea Don't wave me in Until I know who I am When the bottom scrapes my knees I will rest easy "I've earned my weight in gold" "I've earned my stake in whole" When the bottom scrapes my knees I will rest easy "They'll pave the way in gold" "It's what is best for us all" But does it feel right, right now? And does it look right? On you? It could Stop looking up At the sight of A sight Staring you down Muzzle on your mouth Cut the cord We can't afford To further forget what has already been ignored They shoot to kill Stranger still The sickened love story that befell Nurtured by science The holy alliance Nurtured in Absentia Let us all out! Just long enough to taste the sun Let us all out! Just long enough to fill our lungs Let us all out! Because here we come Around

Revisionist History Lyrics: She's a Hero just lying on her back To freeload Eliminates this close contact Sincerity doesn't greet me With the same decency Go on defy your design Take note of the lay Chase your dreams back through denial But plan for a cage Break a sweat try to defend your toil No more hiding truth in sibylline retort Discarding the standard candor that's been our norm, from before A Zero scrawled across her chest Hah, And the irony, isn't lost Latently owning my own Latency With a muffled hello Orientating edges Boxed into a candied pillow Then suddenly I'm six degrees from control Pulled through the eye By you In clover divinity Content on sending me off To a fruitless rebirth Go on defy your design Punch a hole in the fray Dress down a fading figure This doomsday

Tempering 06:21
Tempering Lyrics: Here I keep hinting at An understudy Of structural collapse As she moves below my roots (chin up, chin up) She still fills into the womb As She moves below my roots I'll succumb too I'd like to sit you down To tell you what I'm aldl about now You'd be so proud to hear how my world revolves It's open season To stroke through this change Despite a hook through the leg No rhyme or reason To give it away Its afforded only to chance You gave me sand When you were slipping right through my hands Then I made you glass To salvage what we had left Chin up chin up They don't tell you That it's much safer on the edge Chin up chin up They will just dismiss Everything and everyone anyway It's still the same old you It's still the same old you She looks like She'd like to Take a hammer to the head of the beast The way she's pulling on the end of that leash She looks like She'd like to Have the time to get her own pound flesh before the climacteric You gave me sand When you were slipping right through my hands Then I made you back glass So you could shatter all I had left Chin up chin up They don't tell you that it's much safer on the edge Chin up chin up They will just enforce Borders as our fait accompli Walk out to the lights (chin up) Walk into the lights (chin up) Alive alive Enough to know How dead everything else is inside

about

The undeniable quality to 'Vortices: A Forward' is that it embodies what Visitors set out to do: form a unique sound and mood around a story as it develops, rather than piece one together around a collection of common band-member musical influences. With this new offering falling into the 'post-something/experimental-heavy-something-else' difficult to nail down genre, it felt only suiting that Visitors' create and publish a comic book entitled 'Axis B' to accompany the release of this concept EP. This dual-offering of an EP and comic book will be followed up in early 2018 with an already-completed full-length album which picks up and greatly expands upon the storyline from Vortices.
