cannibal collection

1. Nothing. And then everything all at once.

Burning.

Silence pervading.

2. Broken bits of the cosmic creation conspired to be great
Spinning uncontrollably, fervent hunger
“Cannibal galaxy”
Collecting creatures of the Cosmos in its maw
The Universe felt the formation of the Milky Way and shuddered.
Legends are created from discontent

Silence pervading.

3. Dust and gas and pressure and fire.
The Solar System did not ask to be born
It was struck into existence from the chaos around it
Earth formed from violence and pressure and heat. And heat. And heat.
Earth survived so close to the sun because it was strong enough to withstand the catastrophe
Venus beamed at her sister. They had made it.

Silence pervading.

4. Rome was built on ruins.
Emperors upon emperors stacked carelessly
Broken bones, bloody knuckles, shattered kingdoms
Existence unlike any known since the creation of the Cosmos

But even stars collapse.
Not with a scream,
An old warrior, voice shaking, “I’m tired”
All they have to offer the firmament
Leaving legacy upon legacy stacked perpetually
Foundations for something better, brighter

Silence pervading

5. Cyclical.

Explode like the cosmos. Scream into existence. If the world has no space for you, create it. Push back tenfold.

Endlessly create yourself like the Milky Way. It was once a small unknowing group of irregularities. You were not born great. You will make it so.

Allow disasters to visit you like Earth. Remain steadfast in your belief that you will not burn out despite the fire.

Build upon the disarray like Rome, do not hide the mess. Convert it. Brandish it. Baptize it in blood.

And if you fall again. If you crumble beneath the weight of the cosmos.

Silence pervading

And then, creation.

@byk23 it’s all your fault, but thank you for that suggestion. 

To those who want to watch that movie, you really should. Just look for trigger warnings before.

NEW VIDEO

Silversun Pickups - Cannibal

New music video by Silversun Pickups’ “Cannibal”, premiered worldwide yesterday at Jimmy Kimmel Live. Cannibal is a new song that wil be included in The Singles Collection vinyl box set, to be released on February 25th via Dangerbird Records.

Lyrics:

when the king comes down to speak
with animals
animals…

with his claws out for a feast
a cannibal
cannibal…

when we crawl out to the brink
to meet and greet
with a wink…

pull the rug out from underneath
this cannibal
cannibal…

who is gonna break the ice
no room for shallow alibis
who will be the first to bite
or do we keep on playing nice
until the next time…

hey
it’s too late
i’ve been here before the change
this latest phase…

if the king bows to our feet
a cannibal’s
a cannibal…

who is gonna break the ice
no room for shallow alibis
who will be the first to bite
or do we keep on playing nice
until the next time…
