Ars moriendi (Julio 1992) - My own knell

I´m a cry in a bottle
crashed against a wall of bones
the mirror reflects a crowd of faces
without a side to my poor thoughts.

I dig in my flesh
to bury my soul
that sickening truth
eternity is real
I hate myself
more than anything
I carry my life
like an iron ball.

Did I say life?

I need help
none will give
a little chance to save my life
The best of me
lost in the intent
kick me in the border of depression
I hear a voice
behind my conscious
saying over and over again:
Oh my sweet imbecile
go on growing
each time you´re smaller.

Formed in 1988 in Caracas, Venezuela, Baphometh became a reference in the local metal scene with just two demos and a fistful of gigs. Split in 1993 but with a still loyal base of fans, founder guitarist and vocalist Franklin Zambrano decided some years ago to release for free and to the whole world this work that has just one owner: the fans.
