about

CD available here: www.concatenationrecords.com/store.html

This is the second release by Jason Vincion under his Amaranthine Skies project. With this disc, he revisits 12 songs that he wrote between 1999 and 2006, all of which have been previously recorded under different projects of his. This release is also a departure from "Dark Side of Zebes" in that all of the songs are rock or metal-based and the only similarities are in the synths that are used.

Track Name: Inundation
Floodgates torn down
Soaked to the bone
Deep, empty abyss
Drenched and alone
Emotional maelstrom
Leaves a river of tears
Flowing through the psyche
All deluged but fears

No currents of hope
To rush through the despair
No ebb to this sorrow;
This drowning nightmare
Distilling the pain
In one last wave of time
From the wound, blood courses
Like a stream: sublime
Track Name: Wreckage
The rage stews within my veins
Unseen walls are reminders
Self-inflicted pain
Clears the head of the blinders

Nerves flare from blunt force trauma
The sensation - intoxicating
Open wounds show life at its purest
And the pain is exhilarating

I have a need to destroy
And tear myself apart
A masochistic thrill I feel
Wreckage is in my heart

The flesh survives the frustration
And leaves marks to remember
The power of the body’s aggression
And the strength to heal from failure

I have a need to destroy
And tear myself apart
A masochistic thrill I feel
Wreckage is in my heart
Track Name: Isolation's Chill
Time passes by
I exist alone in the dark
Striking stones in light’s void
Looking for a spark
Four walls enclose me
But there’s no need to escape
The world changed around me
And I can’t abide the shape

Years of solitude
Embittered much
Discomfort gained
From human touch
Embrace the husk
Yet the heart is still
For I’ve been consumed
By isolation’s chill

A vast wave of corruption
Polluting souls
Decency and acceptance
Now pointless goals
The sins of old embraced
And enacted with glee
Disgust filled my heart
Now I bleed apathy

Naiveté
Fades with age
My hope for mankind
Was burned in rage
Disillusioned
By my despair
The need to love
Beyond repair
And all that I’ve learned
Tore down my will
Now I embrace
Isolation’s chill

Years of solitude
Embittered much
Discomfort gained
From human touch
Embrace the husk
Yet the heart is still
For I’ve been consumed
By isolation’s chill
Track Name: Thoughts of Her
It’s been almost nine years since the time we first met
And the first one you love is so hard to forget
Small in her frame and such pain in her eyes
She had a passion for life that was hard to disguise
A young girl of twenty and a mother of one
I used to walk with her in the cold autumn sun
As we grew closer, I thought nothing was wrong
But success rarely happens in a wistful love song

I know that she cared, but it wasn’t meant to be
As love came in second to security
I expressed my desire and was shut down outright
For another man kept her in the day and the night
I stayed a while longer, as a glutton for pain
But hearing her kissing, it left me in shame
So I pushed her away when she needed a friend
And I pushed her away, ’cause I needed an end

A few years later, I last saw her face
Hatred rushed in and gave way to disgrace
A failure so strong, it burned deep in my mind
And to the beauty of others, I have become blind
Live in my hole and block out all the pain
Numbed to existence - it all seems mundane
Now seared in my mind, an image of her name
As a field of heather burns slowly in flame
