Burn Everything You Touch [Ghosts]

from by The Mercy Cage & Justine O'Gahdra-Sharp



'Burn Everything You Touch' iterates the original middle 8 of 'Ghost Phase', built around densely layered atonal guitar preparations & big room drums.


No fair, no-one at home
Fired your prayers to broken stones
Subsume and evaporate
Another corpse for the raves
It's a murderers row here
Salt the earth, Burn to dust
Another lapse unfounded
As hope smiles
Such a waste
And she drops bombs from the pyre that stain the eyes
Took a stab at immolation and failed
Let's agree that I fell over again
Nothing new here
Move along

It burns us away
And burns us away.

It swallows everything you touch.
