about

A thread spun from before the beginning of man, The Rift chronicles that which we all must succumb to: love and triumph, madness and defeat. Follow the footsteps of Eifa and Iyzabel through sin's summer and a wanderer's winter, outside of and woven into time and its incessant ticking.

"As all days wilt and wither, where will you find solace now?"

To everyone that stuck with me through this long journey, thank you. I also want to give special mention to Maggie for help with artwork and musical guidance. I'm sure I've missed others, but this journey has been too long and my memory fades. If that is the case, know that your contributions were appreciated!

Track Name: The Might Of Man
:INTRO:
on this day,
I give you my heart, my soul, my life for you
always and forever
on this day,
I make this vow to you:
never will I stray or wander
for you are the only one for me
through the darkest trials and the highest joys
may you and I always be as one
on this day,
forever,
amen

:VERSE 1:
shrouded in grey
the stars hang wistfully high
Aten burns ever brighter
as if about to explode
blissfully, they play
as if the sky had no end
god turns his face
and the firmament begins to erode

:VERSE 2:

and the earth cries
the heavens bow
as two become one
a day foretold by wise men of old
brought about through an ignorant vow
etched upon and woven into the ages

:PRECHORUS:
*ab aeterno
*ab infinitum
*alea iacta est

:CHORUS:
free yourselves from perdition
raise up and reach for Zion
realize your personal ecstasy
has become mankind's archenemy

:VERSE 3:
love soars like an angel first given wings
and lands on a bed made with shards of the sun
lust bores into the deep like the roots of yggdrasil
and in its wake, all creation becomes undone

:PRECHORUS:
*ab aeterno
*ab infinitum
*alea iacta est

:CHORUS:
free yourselves from perdition
raise up and reach for Zion
realize your personal ecstasy
has become mankind's archenemy

:OUTRO:


*from the beginning
*without end
*the die has been cast
Track Name: The Murder Of Man
:VERSE 1:
From empyrean, they descend
darkening the skies with an auburn hue
searing the skin of gaia
behold our demise

:VERSE 2:
the cosmos accepts its defeat
and once-great broken beacons
send shards to pierce the veil
bitter-sweet in its end
gaia weakens and sighs
as their tale comes to a close

:VERSE 3:
Like a great plague of lost memory
This cataclysm cloaks them in the whisper of gahenna
fairy tales become nightmares
As vapor forms humanesque shadows in the late evening hour
kadoor ha'aretz, wilting and weary
succumbs to the darkness obscuring all of our latent hopes

:Verse 4:
a flower born of desire
bore fruit turned rotten in the splendor of youth
in soil tilled with adoration
came an inferno too strong to uphold
caught in the mire of ruination
and brought to their knees by a horrible truth
our damnation through their salvation
foretold from beginning to end

:OUTRO:
a flower born of desire
do you know of what I speak?
in the garden of lust, you bore fruits of damnation
and I watched you from afar
knowing what would transpire

a blossoming escalation
do you know of what I speak?
you met not knowing of the fire waiting to be unleashed
and I watched from afar
knowing all too well of your adoration

and I watched from afar
and I did nothing
Track Name: Angelic Assurance
:INTRO:
Before humanity's first breath
Great bloodshed tore heaven apart
death greeted those thought to be untouchable
and two depart to end an epoch before it had begun

:VERSE 1 A:
a great fissure in the promised land
spawns forth demons too dark for dreams
and their crowning jewel, Iyzabel
at the forefront of a great uprising

:VERSE 1 Bi:
the left hand of god, Eifa, hosanna on high
screams towards those with anarchy's flag

:VERSE 1 Bii:
under authority's rule, destined for condemnation
and ordained to fall prey to the hand of fate

:PRE-CHORUS:
son and daughter so defiled
with a glimpse of the other so reviled
son and daughter, enthralled, beguiled
lost to the other with a sensual smile

:CHORUS:
Clothed in the darkness piercing into his soul
wrapped in the warmth of lechery
stymied by loss of control and
driven senseless by the weight of treachery

:VERSE 2 A:
Poured out like an offering,
I am yours to devour
lacerate me and invigorate my vitality
as adrenaline surges across my disposition

:VERSE 2 B i:
this calling is ours, for you and for I
empower us in this moment

:VERSE 2 B ii:
may finality imbue us with assurance
and let our ambition never lead us asunder

:PRE-CHORUS:
son and daughter of zeus and belial
lost to the other in innocence and denial
son and daughter to be put on trial
for dire actions that were left unreconciled

:CHORUS:
Clothed in the darkness piercing into his soul
wrapped in the warmth of lechery
stymied by loss of control and
driven senseless by the weight of treachery

:SOLO:
the scions of jehovah and apollyon
condemned and damned
doomed to drown
Track Name: Angelic Imprisonment
:INTRO SOLO:

:VERSE 1:
(cleans)
deep in Arcadia, elohim cries
the only heir to be forgotten.
(growls)
baptize in obscurity,
your noose will reflect in the eye of Aten

:VERSE 2:
with this yoke I bind thee, son of mine
heir to the throne, be one with the unknown
may his burden confine thee, scion of thine
heiress to the Cimmerian shade, be one with the betrayed

:PRE-CHORUS:
woven into the tapestry of an epoch newly birthed
where expiration was spun before exhalation
and knowledge was eclipsed in gray, never to be unearthed

:CHORUS:
amor deus supra
amorem infra satan
non temporis misit ad locum
ubi si non renovetur
amor eifa
et amor iyzabel
non potest ab illis
septem signacula sunt a Domino exercituum

:VERSE 3:
sealed away in slumber
Eifa and Iyzabel lay in stasis
together eternally, forever apart
yet one so loved, for her, he will depart

:VERSE 4:
like a lamb to the slaughter
her father, saviour and sacrifice
to free both son and daughter
from bonds meant only to prevent mankind's demise

:PRE-CHORUS:
their hands hold the seeds of devastation
the clay, their love, the lifeblood, their decay
in ignorance, they wilted mortal flesh without hesitation

:CHORUS:
amor deus supra
amorem infra satan
non temporis misit ad locum
ubi si non renovetur
amor eifa
et amor iyzabel
non potest ab illis
septem signacula sunt a Domino exercituum


latin chorus is as follows in english
the love of god above and the love of satan below
sent to a place where they can do no harm
but the love of eifa and the love of iyzabel
cannot be contained by these seven seals placed by the lord of hosts
Track Name: Birthed In Blood
:INTRO:
carried away by timeless hands
predestined to die in a ceaseless circle
as all days wilt and wither
where will you find solace now?

:CHORUS:
descending into a frigid fold
of an unending affliction left uncontrolled
a meeting braided through time
as the years become faded
and the gears become jaded

:VERSE 1:
stripped of their divinity,
all pride and their memories
yet tied to the other with inescapable bonds
in the vast ocean of infinity
ordained to meet once and again
with all but one being in vain

:VERSE 2:
and in that sanctuary of serenity
where those on the brink of a neoteric existence
beget the gift of life on those soon to suffocate
immersed in their mother's vitality
along the path of least resistance
through the wilds and wastelands, humanity will asphyxiate

:SOLO:

:PRE-CHORUS:
as all days wilt and wither
where will you find solace now?

:CHORUS:
descending into a frigid fold
of an unending affliction left uncontrolled
a meeting braided through time
as the years become faded
and the gears become jaded

:OUTRO:
carried away by timeless hands
predestined to die in a ceaseless circle
as all days wilt and wither
where will you find solace now?
Track Name: Bathed In Finality
:VERSE 1:
Stand before the might of something greater than thou
see that you are nothing but a glimmer lost in time
Eifa, in your insignificance came forth a mighty vow
and Iyzabel, you birthed into being an atrocious crime

:VERSE 2 A:
As they watch gaia bow before Aten's might
great mountains succumb to the tide
all life becomes inert
everything shudders, sighs with sonance

:VERSE 2 B:
they succumb to fright
both bride and groom
fall down to the dirt
their failure reeking of aberrance

:PRE-CHORUS:

:VERSE 3:
Break like the tree under the tsunami
Bend like stone as the earth buckles and bows
Wither like the willow under the midsummer sun
Screech like the Banshee
Howl at your own inadequate self-worth
you and your soulmate have become undone

:PRE-CHORUS:

:CHORUS:
Birthed into life once and again
for this they were promised, fated to meet
yet in something so beautiful and so pure
came an abomination that devoured us all
in their death, there's no relief
from a rift they've come and gone
forever and always
together eternally
