Depleted but, not broken. I am healed. No trauma bond will condemn me. I am free. Blame your sheltered lives. Your parent's neglect. Willful ignorance. No pity for the privileged scum like you. Have your father's eyes. Bare his scars. Botched DNA. Shit trait. Forever passed on. Dying family tree. You exhibit the charm of a victim. You reek of fear. I'll have my day in the sun. I want his blood. Caress your lifeless skin. If I see that man I'm wearing his face. There's no hesitation. I will dismantle you. My fury. My wrath. My scorn knows no bounds. Let the flesh consume me. I wanna baptize in his blood.
At last we're finally. The red calf is born. One last midnight. Take my hand. Lay down next to me. Departure will come soon my love. The reckoning. What we all deserve. The rapture. Your comfort is lost. We're all going to the same hell. I can smell your fear from here. Red calf. The stars align. Every mistake. Has led me to you. Bare witness to the last dawn.
Blood makes the blade holy. Sealed. Offer myself to it. Knowledge. Truth. Illuminate my path. Spit in the face of ignorance. Break those binds that held you prisoner for so long. Whisper his name. Click your jaw like a serpent. So toxic. Yet, so sublime. Poison me. Invade me. Consume me. Dissolve what I once was. Lead you to the clearing. Sacred passages are chanted in unison. The final day. moment of absolution. Gather round my victims. Do you love me? Do you trust me? Tides will wash it away. Patience my child. Relief through way of grape flavor aid. Behold your coveted potentate. Beloved disciples. Hurry up, drink up. We'll make history. Suspended in time. Welcome to infinity. Fire walk with me. Towards The celestial kingdom.
Trainwreck. I saw this coming from a mile away. Why did I long for your subtle abuse? It's sad. I would have done anything for you. My bad. I guess I cared too much. Your mother was right about me. I wasn't meant to stay with you. I hold no grudges. I'm just tired of thinking about you. Charlatan. It's so cute you think you're divine. Munchausen by proxy. Malignant optimism. Daddy's little pageant queen. And I cursed both your names. It's the least I could do. See my eyes in the dark? Hisses from the shadows in your room. I walked to that same bridge every single night. I couldn't find the courage to take that leap of faith. Goodbye. I couldn't save you. We failed each other in the worst possible way. I never got to thank you for completely destroying me. Conditioned me like a fucking dog. Obey. Your every wish was my command. I died in that house where Broad dead ends. I wanted to open that door so bad. I knew if I did I'd have killed you both. Hope that wretched city burns to the ground again. Fuck you.

Tides Cult Chicago, Illinois

Purveying a furious brand of blackened hardcore, Chicago-based quintet Tides Cult tilts equal nod to black metal’s shrouded nocturne and hardcore’s pissed-off onslaught. Bucking all trendiness for authentic second-city grit, the band’s underground spirit reanimates the dead, shocks the living, and conjures anything and everything in between. ... more
