Ghosts of Myself

from by Thomas Rakowitz



A track dating back to about 2009 or 2010, this is one with an aggressive tuning and a killer solo that I'm still proud of. It's also when I first had the idea to use 3 or more melodic lines at the same time, which you can hear in the second verse.


Entombed from above
With scream of mute love
Whispered hate so loud
Preach to the choir's crowd

Every piece so free, but never complete
No puzzle to solve, no past to resolve

You will not take me, no you won't take me
Just let me be free

Chorus: These memories that weigh me down
Inside my mind I'll not drown
Tear out the hooks in my heart
Unbounded for a new start

Graves with my name on the stone
They say that this soul's a loan
To a debt that can't be paid
But that will be claimed

This writing on the wall, can't be the tell all
I can't give in, I won't let it win


Break- Join the stones
