lyrics

I lie still as the knife, once plunged in murder's vain purpose, now useless
Nothing fair may take root
Desireless, godless, faceless, formless, as ages of stone untouched by decay
Nothing fair may take root

Second, moment, minute, hour, day, month, year, decade, era, age, eon
I precede Time and Love
Nothing fair may take root
Ruler of all worlds
In a void, in silence
before Light and Dawn are seen
Nothing fair may take root
by gods and their offspring -

and the living things. My gown entombs the young Universe - this terse vacuum where Sleep grows alongside his brother Death, twins in my black womb.
I wear no stars for adornment. I eat no flesh to abate hunger. I drink no wine to sate my thirst. Even the shining one cannot avoid me, for I mirror him in shadow.
As man beholds the sun, I am that dark sphere haunting his closed eyes. Before his birth, I am his mother. In death, he is my child again. Before your birth, I am your mother. In death, you will be my child...

Second, moment, minute, hour, day, month, year, decade, era, age, eon
I precede Time and Love
Nothing fair may take root
Ruler of all worlds
In a void, in silence
before Light and Dawn are seen
Nothing fair may take root
by gods and their offspring.

In a void, eternally silent, perfect stillness unknown to Man. Never born, ever in sweet stasis, my veil Mystery. In death you will be my child again...

about

EYE OF NIX Seattle, Washington

"With crust and sludge-influenced riffs meeting black metal’s tremolo picking at the noisiest crossroads, the band sets a tumultuous backdrop for vocalist Joy Von Spain’s otherworldly, operatic banshee wails." Noisey (4-5-15).
