about

A dark, penetrating track with a unique arrangement of woodwinds and strings complementing the relentless guitar pulse and processed samples.

lyrics

My only, my only predilection
My only, my only supplication

Contain me, contain me in your cold gaze
Beside you, beside you it's the only thing I know

You want me, you want me with a half-smile
I like it, I like it in your afterglow

My only, my only predilection
My only, my only supplication
