Burn the mosaic in all,
It's tesselated glory
Let our ashen eyes apall,
Those who would fight entropy.

Shieldface embraces the maze,
Auditions for a part in,
A corner of the facade,
I'd rather gaze out than in.

Oh state violence is so pretty
Rubber bullets, boot soles, stamp to careful beats.
Still as you fear I'll hallow my own feet.

I'm all through confusing


from Shieldface, released October 29, 2016
