about

:╪:About:╪:

Eve is the ultimate unattainable, that impossible union that we seek from others and ourselves. Sometimes merging with this ideal means we reach a higher plane - the most pleasurable experience; but sometimes, we sacrifice so much of ourselves in pursuit of this ultimate ideal that we become undone in the process. This is the story of someone who is facing the staggering realization that all of his highest ideals that he's worshipped and exalted in others his entire life are becoming undone right before his eyes.

lyrics

|::Lyrics::|

I drew my last breath, I'm swooned;
She's Maya's unmarried moon -
The dying goddess from the ocean,
I'm the drowning feathered serpent.
For you and I the angels failed to fly
we made ashes out of every paradise;
we gave up god and snuffed the sun,
made love to death and came undone.

She's made from the promise of a pomegranate,
the nightside of Eden on a nightly basis.
We drink until we're drunk on unholy spirits,
we dance until we're dead - this isn't heaven.
She's made from the promise of a pomegranate,
in this sacred garden, promises are broken.
First she ate the apple, then she fucked the serpent,
the our children hung me from the tree of wisdom.

She sang my name in symbols, my Eve undone:

I mistranslated her remnants,
I overdosed on the powdered version of her spirit.
I unraveled her chakras,
and hung myself by them to overcome her oblivion.
My heart beats without its body,
she recites the pulsations pronouncing my apocalypse.
And when it finally came to an end, we were dead,
and danced once again.

Burnt into the sun, my one and only love,
Eve, is undone.

She weeps and her colors run, my one and only love,
Eve, is undone.

Her final words are unsung, my one and only love,
Eve, is undone.

We always seem to get into these situations, don't we?
I don't understand... she tried to speak, but I don't understand her.
She asked me how she got here, so I answered:

I saw you standing at the edge of never,
your reflection expressed nothing manifest.
I was elated,
I found you drowning in a pool of impassioned intention.
I found images of my death hidden in your empty gazes.
I fucked the woman on the moon and behind her eyelids I saw suns set.
Behind her eyelids, I found my apocalypse.
Behind her eyelids, I found the sun permanently eclipsed.

Here we are, slaves again,
and searching for love after death.
In my eyes, I can see
Us as fallen gods, bleeding and believing.
All we have left is our dreams,
but in my dreams, you and I cease to be.

You and I cease to be.

about

Shea Bilé Los Angeles, California

Shea Bilé is often heard somewhere on the Moon speaking in tongues with fallen angelic-eccentric flair. Within these songs resonate a sonic ceremonial fusion of not-so-subtle tragic instrumentation and lyricism born of aggro-elegant punk-poetic and unrepentant occulture.

Socal-based poet, Shea Bilé, is a relentless storyteller of the 5th dimension, and the Never-afters that follow
