about

For Damiens, who failed to murder a king and instead met god. Read about him in Foucault's Discipline & Punish

lyrics

As my flesh unravels,
As my veins untangle,
As my ventricles are
spilt.
As my arteries are torn,
As my wrists are slit,
As my body is
dismantled.
As my hand is smoldered to this dagger,
I was wrong to reject
I confess.
As my bones are broken,
As my member is castrated,
As my joints are,
hacked.
As my chest is opened,
As my sinews are severed,
As I am reduced to
fragments.
I have seen the light, I have seen the light.
I have seen the light, I have seen the light.
I'd rejoice though my tounge has been split.
I'd kneel but my legs are torn from my body.
I have found you on the scaffold.
I have found you on the gallows.
