One year ago, we finished recording our full-length "A Simple Life, A Quiet Mind". This track is originally from that album and is a favorite of ours to play live. During the Deathdealer split session, we decided to re-record it to reflect both our lineup change as well as the natural evolution of the song after a year of performing it live. We hope you enjoy it.
What savages are we, to not see what we've done to this sacred place? This house of healing, this place of mourning; how many lives passed through its gates? How many families were comforted in its sweet embrace?
Now the building stands empty, reduced to the bricks that make up the walls. The offering emptied, the furniture stolen or given away. We sealed its fate in a single day. Then went out to drink to our callous hearts and careless mistakes.
We washed our hands of it, casting no second thoughts to the unhallowing of this no longer sacred ground.
