Necrolytic Goat Converter New York

Started as a joke band name crowd-sourced on Facebook, then turned into something else: therapy through music.

Thanks for checking out one man working through his personal demons, badly, through the music that he loves.

Track Name: A Quiet Affirmation
broken life
extinguished stars

last of giants
wither away

not alone
i am wrapped in the dust of an age

in the folds of nothing
i am one with your gods

a silent audience
observing the pantomime

the secret revealed
in a marriage of fracturing dreams

i am still here
Track Name: Isolated Evolution
adrift in cataclysmic winds
one is torn from the flock
left to wander on its own
build existence with a thought

grow to survive
left without a choice
secrets in the cell
transfigured in the dark

isolated evolution!
isloated evolution!

determining the path
moving beyond self
removing boundaries, limits of the flesh
reach defined by will

grow to survive
left without a choice
secrets in the cell
transfigured in the dark

isolated evolution!
isloated evolution!

isolated evolution!
isloated evolution!
Track Name: The Dark Within
the veil is parted
invites a look inside
face to face with your contempt
for this human hide

this is what you valued
this is what you chose
this is offered up as feast
for the carrion crows

watch as all your options crumble
watch as all illusions fail
welcome to the dark within
welcome to my grief

worldview is blackened
cannot escape your mind
the path is littered with the sins you create
leave you helpless and blind

this is what we fight against
more than anyone knows
pain suppressed in a hundred ways
as the depression grows

watch as all your options crumble
watch as all illusions fail
welcome to the dark within
welcome to my grief

watch as all your options crumble
watch as all illusions fail
welcome to the dark within
welcome to my grief
Track Name: Strange Symbols
he lays his head under prophetic skies
to conjure up his own vision of god
a deity assembled from the blood and
filth of a mind withdrawn from the light

unquestioned rhetoric has spoiled his faith
in himself, in his eyes, in the ones who would care
a black equation that has sullied his soul to
accept all the lies that have shattered his life

i search for time that i will never get back
a past always out of reach
my eyes can’t look to the future
strange symbols are blinding me

the shadows mar the memories of his life
obscuring the thoughts that were once held pure
would this but melt, he laments to the sky
as he willingly sinks himself in the dark

i search for sins that i cannot erase
when i was more than i am
i cling to sigils that are false in the light
strange symbols are haunting me
Track Name: Seraphim
a sigil left upon a broken land
its roots spread far under the earth
the old seer’s eyes can no longer see
a way out from the cold and the black

there is no break on the horizon
the path is no longer laid bare
i put my trust in your seraphim
only to find they weren’t there

the path is worn with the footsteps of man
broken from the pain of birth
born to clash with iron and steel
to claim dominion of your name

there is no break on the horizon
the path is no longer laid bare
i put my trust in your seraphim
only to find they weren’t there

is this the so-called new frontier
a field of broken flesh and bone
of angel wings and trumpets crushed
doomed to retell this tale of sand
Track Name: Eternal Winter (The Still)
stars denote the coming of the still
eternal winter for the engine of the world
rust of centuries stuck between the gears
provide a requiem for the age of flesh

destinations falling off the map
the circle narrows to the dark unknown
lens is cracked, the hands now stopped
birth of loathing, genesis of doubt

this is the winter of the world
this is the weakening of flesh
this is a choice that you have made
this is the coming of the still

drained of color, sky is void of life
failure of repeated actions
left with nothing but the detritus of false plans
frozen on the barren ground

minutes lost serve as the foundation
construction of a new machine
paralyzed in shame allow the ties to bind
no support for the scaffolding of mind

this is the winter of the world
this is the weakening of flesh
this is a choice that you have made
this is the coming of the still
Track Name: The Calamity of Not Knowing
i didn’t know, couldn’t see
the stars occlude the pain
i caused you, and now it’s
blinded me

lost in the folds of past regrets
cant’ find a place to
rest my head, restore my faith,
absolve my soul

in the end, what is left?
words unspoken, prayers unheard

let me have another chance
to see if you heard me
felt my hand

i didn’t know, couldn’t see
the door is closed and I can’t
find the lock, and
i don’t have a key

the emptiness surrounds my
pantomime, I pretend you hear me
i fumble for the
words I never said
