I went with the Bonus Track because it’s the most accessible, and there is no single song from the album that encapsulates Pharmakon. The rest of the album is a gut-wrenching cacophonous assault. A truly visceral and physical listening experience.
Let me sit down by the old family bible/
Down by the window where my mother used to pray.
She’s looking ‘round the room in the fourth dimension/
she’s howlin’ at the moon in your direction… awhooo!
I’m so hungry man/
I could eat the rich.
Okay, the streets aren’t paved with gold/
But at least they paved, though/
And we move like wolves/
in the bleak night.
And we dance like ghosts/
deprived of flight.
The body will come to understand/
a season of doubt.
"I will contain you/then cast you away/like a broken memory"
