about

Written and recorded between 2003-2015. The proper release for this album (set for Summer 2005) never came as the master tracks were lost due to equipment failure twice during the final phases of recording and mixing. This album represents the best final mixes for the existing tracks slated for the album as well as newer re-recordings.

about

Black Pill Birmingham, Alabama

The Black Pill came to be during the 2003-2004 writing & recording sessions for the third Lunasect album. The sound & songwriting for those sessions were becoming very focused & didn't seem to fit the "anything/all the time" experimental & more synth driven sound of Lunasect. The songs recorded during that 2003-2005 period as well as new material will be released on 1.24.15. ... more

Track Name: The Arsonist
now that I’ve got you on the line I’m fine you remind me of someone I once knew you do I’m amused I’m consumed I’m confused or maybe it’s just time to go • we are waiting and we are responsible and we are patient and we are impossible to ignore • now that I’ve got you in my head I regret I forget myself and I fall apart there’s a fire where I stand there’s a match in my hand and I don’t know where the exits are • we are waiting and we are the burning sun and we are fading and we are impossible to ignore
Track Name: Dig Your Hole
I’m just not strong enough to take you at your own game but if I wanted to I could break you in the worst way • don’t you think you’ve had enough don’t you think you’ve had enough to get through • who’s gonna dig your hole cos you’re gonna need it who’s gonna take control cos you’re gonna need it • your eyes aren’t clear enough to see through your darkness your life keeps telescoping down it’s pathetic • don’t you think you’ve had enough dont you think you’ve had enough shit don’t you think you’ve had enough don’t you think you’ve had enough to get through • in your mind you always fly you’re the hero of your story so close your eyes it’s a hell of a ride if you make it to the morning • don’t you think you’ve had enough dont you think you’ve had enough shit don’t you think you’ve had enough don’t you think you’ve had enough to kill you • who’s gonna dig your hole cos you’re gonna need it who’s gonna take control cos you’re gonna need it who’s gonna pay your toll cos you’re gonna need it who’s gonna dig your hole cos you’re gonna need it • just do your time cos baby I’ve done mine
Track Name: Nothing At All
you could make me if you need it could you take it in my place cos once we begin it goes on and on and on until it’s gone it may be complicated and it may be getting late cos once we begin it goes on and on and on and then it’s gone • you should know like it was nothing at all • you say it like you mean it then you stick me in the back well if you’re gonna be that way I have nothing more to say to you anyway • if want it you can flaunt it you can stab it in your face but if you point that thing at me you better use it or I’ll take it away • and you should know you used to know like it was nothing at all • I didn’t feel it for a long time I didn’t feel it so long like it was nothing at all I didn’t feel it for a long time I didn’t feel it so long now it’s gone • and you should know you used to know you should know like it was nothing at all
Track Name: I Will If You Won't
take a blade to your vein when the blood starts to drain and you’re fading remember me • if you won’t do it then I will • you’ve taken it too far to turn back now let me help you out • take a drink of gasoline when you scream and you think that you’re sinking remember me • if you won’t do it then I will • you’ve taken it too far to turn back now let me help you out
Track Name: Cellophane
think I must have made you up from cigarettes and paper cuts you never loved me sick the way I sold you out to idle hands and misplaced doubts but I was hungry • we have nowhere left to go and they’re calling out in stereo we have nowhere else to go anymore and oh here we are • so this is how you call on me with cellophane and guarantees but it was empty • we have nowhere left to go and they’re coming through the radio we have nowhere else to go anymore and oh here we are • we have nowhere left to go and they’re burning out on video we have nowhere else to go anymore and we have nothing left to show but I’m pulling off the blindfold and there’s nowhere left to go and we don’t know
Track Name: Already Gone
we wear disguises yeah we hide in plain sight they let us in we take whatever we feel like we live in closets and we move in the noise they’re lighting fires and they’re pounding on doors we slip through windows and we work in the night we got the passwords and we got the files we sold the silver but we’re keeping the art they’re using plastic forks in rooms with bare walls • don’t try to find me cos I’m already gone • we slide in darkness we leave nothing behind hidden compartments and clever devices empty cases and black leather gloves lipstick microphones and memory drugs we fight with velvet honey we fight with jewels we’ve got the negatives and we’ve got the proof we carry master keys and we practice knots they lie awake in bed afraid of their thoughts • don’t try to find me cos I’m already gone
Track Name: Living Dreaming
if I touched you would you take my pain away if I asked you would you really try to change no I know you won’t when I watch you do you feel me disappear when I need you do you see me standing here no I know you don’t • maybe I’m sleeping wake me I’m dreaming but I know these are not my days that I’m living maybe I’m wishing that it’s all gonna go away • will you take me somewhere I have never been will you make me someone I would rather be no I know you won’t • do you want me to fall down at your feet do you need me to make your life complete no I know you don’t • maybe I’m sleeping wake me I’m dreaming but I know these are not my days that I’m living maybe I’m wishing that it’s all gonna my way • hour makes sleep makes dream
Track Name: Bleeding Through
I never dreamed that I would see a sky so blue but now it’s coming through wrapped up in blue screen blue and I never thought that I would feel this away again but now it’s coming through somehow it’s bleeding through • locked up inside the corners of the mind and through the shadows and the dust I found a light • I never thought that I would find myself alone or find me needing you just like you want me to I never dreamed that I would shed my skin for you but now I have returned with superficial burns • locked up inside the corners of the mind and through the shadows and the dust I found a light • I never thought that I would I never thought I could somehow it’s coming through somehow I’m needing you somehow it’s bleeding
Track Name: Next Exit
tear down the city burn all the building we’re building bridges we’re burning bridges floating away in a deep green haze on a road with no detours that I don’t remember a hole in your life that keeps getting bigger nothing but dead air between us here so it comes down to nothing a city of dead no one around now and I don’t exist yet new shades of grey between black and white • never clean enough never quick enough can anyone hear you through this interference signal to noise what’s left of your voice • your wife thinks you’re dead now you climbed up the ladder when they found new orleans six feet under water we lay down and die for the camera eye • never close enough never good enough I don’t mean to be crude but I don’t need it like you (do) so this point of view may be out of tune • never have enough never want enough • when the feeling is gone found broken and out of it let it wash over you life’s a commercial where everyone thinks that it’s going to get better but simple decisions just keep getting harder left bleeding and blue half dead in the gutter it’s a wasted existence but it won’t last forever well fair enough
Track Name: Strange Love
I was talking to myself you seemed to hear me seemed to feel me I was walking in my sleep you seemed to see me seemed to know me there. there, there of course I remember but you won’t get in my way • don’t close your eyes this may be the last time this may be the first time that you see me • I was falling I was weak you tried to push me to pull me down I was laughing I was free you tried to break me tried to take me there. there, there of course I remember but you won’t get in my way • don’t close your eyes this be the first thing this may be the last thing that you see
