about

So, things haven't turned out how we wanted them to be. Because of busy lifes we're not able to finish this vocal version anytime soon. We've decided that it would be best to release it as it is now and move on. And now we're here. I hope you still like this mini edition. If you want the full album you can still get all the instrumentals here:
transcendentalexistence.bandcamp.com/album/raison-d-tre-instrumentals

I would like to conclude by saying thanks to Dirk Vollon at Harbinger Design for helping us out with the artwork:

Track Name: Raison d'Être
Crawl back to your hole
I dissect the words from which you inspire an opinion
Pure Garbage
Mis spoken syllables told the world to pay a fine for a crime that was not commited
Shut the fuck up, prick
Couldn't give less than a shit to what you say
I hope you fade away
So that the world will see
That he who creates is the last one to leave

You don't have what it takes
Pull under the blanket that makes you safe
The more that I hear, the more essence I crave

Let all fingers cross and point to the head that is on stage
Let them talk on and on about the world that we create
But never, NEVER forget that we do this because we can
And so we will until you know that music isn't a means to an end

A means to an end.

Flickering screams make way for a lost head
Let it in or let go
Do your worst over what I've said
To let it flow is to show

Strange as it may seem
We get out of line
The world to which we play to
Coated with fetid lies

With freedom we're all alike
But few of us understand
That there's a difference between those who create
and The fellow man

I've had a thousand million dreams
That kept me holding to where I am now
If its oblivion that calls I heed, I heed
So it'd better call loud loud loud

Its time to let go!

To let flow is to show!

When I see gleaming eyes I come alive
I come alive, I come alive
When I hear all those cries I come alive
I come alive I come alive

Let all fingers cross and point to the head that is on stage
Let them talk on and on about the world that we create
But never, NEVER forget that we do this because we can
And so we will until you know that music isn't a means to an end
Track Name: Barely Breathing
Today we corrupt everything that is and will be
Today we break and salvage everything that is part of me
Tommorow we'll close our eyes so we can unsee
The Natural Nature Naturally anxious to break free

Uneven strides fuel the fantasies
Of jungle-like predator instincts
A thousand colors you see
A million lives you will end tonight

Falling leaves used for cover in the dead of night
This realm needs some radical insight

Rage, it breathes down your neck
It beckons you to color all rivers with bloody mary red
Be the animal embody the teeth of the world
clench bite and rend the inner wall

Since the mad do not live
Simple lives
A man cannot hold a habit on the day he dies

Grieve
The sadder the world the hungrier the wolf

There's a thousand ways to kill prey but only one
to kill the soul

For the mad do not live simple lives
A man cannot hold a habit
on the day he dies...

Hold tight
This thread of trends and all that it binds
Keep the sheep in one place
So I can make the jump

The law is weak and luck favors the bold
A killing instinct thrives in the cold
Centuries of foiled skin and flesh unfold

Hunters always held the reins
So the weak would be of use
Used for wordly abuse
To set the examples
That nobody really cared for

The example itself was an excuse
To overuse the most simple of all powers
The one expressed through raw strength
That eliminated all cowards

Cowards they're labelled but they're the ones who
Sow what you earn
If they're born to die they might as well fight
For a future where they learn to recognize
That the world is a place for all types and kinds

Today we corrputed everything that is and will be
Today we broked and salvaged everything that is part of me
Tommorow we'll close our eyes so we can unsee
The Natural Nature Naturally anxious to break free

(Power is story) (And is only well earned) (When used for things that matter) (Like making oppressors burn)
Track Name: Memento Mori
A person dies
Then the mind gets funded by lies
"We try to get the best stream of juice out of our lives"
Carpe Diem
Words spoken by hypocrites who love that couch
It feels so good when you stare at the screen
The Colors come out
You absorb everything like an intelligent being Should
So long as The world revolves, revolves around you
And your tiny attitude

Curl inside, your pathetic illusion of what it is to have a life
Serenity no longer has room for the absent minded type
Find the key that moves thee upon the joys of sunlight

Energy...
Flows through the big screen and
Sets you free
On the path to virtual insanity
Lets you see
The visions of what life could be
Memento Mori
Wondered why it could've been so

Good

So Good.

So ripe was this flower
Blossomed inside a core
By the likes of which we don't care anymore
The way, the way it handles itself its just so so so beautiful
The colors, oh the colors are so bright
Yet we don't know what they're for
2x

Energy...
Flows through the big screen and
Sets you free
On the path to virtual insanity
Lets you see
The visions of what life could be
Memento Mori
Wondered why it could've been so

Good

Life is short, and shortly it will end
Death comes for all, and it respects no one
Life is short, and shortly it will end
Never forget.

Energy...
Flows through the big screen and
Sets you free
On the path to virtual insanity
Lets you see
The visions of what life could be
Memento Mori
Wondered why it is always so

Track Name: Break Free
Hindsight mind these thoughts keep pouring out
A falacy of ruined senses beats me down
This life falls in pieces of what I've been
It goes round and around As i've been waiting
For A chance to be free
Of this fleeting me

I'm not made of stone
I'm not whole
I'm broken

I'm not made of stone
I'm not whole
I'm broken

Let the world burn in the name
Of the finest
Corruption there is

Let the world burn in my name
I'm the finest
Madness there is

Molding these nodes in my brain
Climbing These stairs of shame
Molding these bones in strings of pain
Rowing with Life aside this game
Mending the words of days past and long vague
The mention of the end of time
Mended the world with more than acid rain
That would fall hard, leaving nothing but bitter rage

And worlds a fire

Insight mind these thoughts keep pouring out
A falacy of ruined senses beats me down

I'm not made of stone
I'm not whole
I'm not made of stone
I'm not whole

I'm not made of stone
I'm not whole
I'm not made of stone
I'm not whole
