    Double LP on 180 gram black vinyl in gatefold jacket. Includes two bonus tracks: "Deleatur" (an alternate version of "Mice Eating Gold"), and "Coincidentia Oppositorum III" (a collage of the album's electronic elements). The album's vinyl mix is somewhat different than the digital/CD mix, crossfading between some tracks and slightly truncating the closing portion of "Yarinareth, Yarinareth, Yarinareth".

1.
The world falls apart into facts This eternal machine for producing, crushing, swallowing up A cemetery aimlessly revolving in space Rot repeating itself Where are those who were before us? Driven along aimless desert paths Abandoned to a wilderness of the unbearable Lost in the uselessness of pain See the emptiness within the ruins The sky teeming with worms Turn from the good back to the true Bereft of denial’s dissociation No return Wings spread at the falling of the dusk
2.
The sabbath of the penal servitude of willing is only the spiritualization of cruelty The failed transmutation of the sorrow of being on this earth Mice eating gold The hatred of everything generates images of desolation Repulsion for all that is a seed Self-erasing world To be dead, a house must be still Let it all be deleted Let all this foundation of earth become desolate Wash clean the trick oracle of conscience Shatter the hateful mirrors that multiply and proclaim Cut off the splendor of the sun Cover the moon in night Roll up the scroll of heaven The days are ended The fixed time is passed Open the way, I will take the road
3.
To see what lay behind the blind wall We light a fire each night in a different place Yarinareth, Yarinareth, Yarinareth The blind wall The imporous border The judge and ravisher, never sinking or setting Yarinareth, Yarinareth, Yarinareth The endless silence of surfaces All these broken codes Chains of chronology A game played by the coincidence that is the world Oblivion thrives on blood-ripe lives “So perish all who cross my walls”
4.
Neurophenomenological cave A cell without doors or windows The silence of infinitely open spaces The abyss of human illusion Blind unorganism in darkness An island of pain in an ocean of indifference A worm crawling upon the cosmic carrion Confronting two mirrors A boundless black veil Swallowing all dimensions Pain and awareness neurologically fused Sever the living branch lest it puncture the void Destroy the present tense of memory
5.
The norms that author the self render the self substitutable The lie we need in order to live dooms us to a life that is never really ours Every drive is beset by foreignness A game played by the coincidence that is the world Self-discovery, stale and complete, proves to be utterly futile The vagueness of the person in a mechanical world spinning into decay and death This silent struggle toward no end and no meaning Bitter distress endured in secret Foreboding which dries up all hope Doleful heart, living in darkness Wraithlike body on the point of death The sodden lumber of the body The heart’s void confronting time’s The abyss of myself An abyss in the very realizing
6.
Oviri 08:17
The hours that assail all things Beneath a greater shadow’s wings The body that performs the I The body that curls in and dies Ouroboros-circled abyss Opposing mirrors of consciousness Dust is our food, clay is our meat Mise en abyme, mise en abyme Beyond the sickness of the soul Beyond the sickness of the will Beyond the sickness of the self Beyond the sickness of beyond Every second is a cage Every action is a cage Every reason is a cage Circulus vitiosus deus Oviri

about

"Mice Eating Gold" and "Yarinareth..." have sections in which one guitar gradually increases in tempo while a second guitar gradually decreases in tempo in a manner similar to Conlon Nancarrow's Study No. 21. For instance, "Yarinareth..." opens with a left-panned guitar decelerating from 400 BPM to 100 BPM, while a right-panned guitar accelerates from 100 BPM to 400 BPM. At the midpoint of this process (0:36), the left and right-panned guitars momentarily converge at 200 BPM and a third, centered guitar enters at a stable 200 BPM. The guitars proceed through different configurations of these tempo gradients each time this section recurs in the track, always playing manipulations of the 24-note series 0, 3, 22, 21, 14, 17, 8, 7, 4 19, 18, 5 6, 15, 16, 23, 20, 1, 2 13, 10, 11, 12, 9.

Most of the tracks have sections in multiple simultaneous tempos, like the prolation canon in a 4:5:6:7:8 ratio in "The Norms...". "Democritus Laughing" opens with a four-measure riff that accelerates by gaining an extra note each measure in a horizontal 4:5:6:7 ratio, for a total of 22 notes. The 22 pitches played by the opening guitar were generated aleatorically by rolling a 24-sided die; the three other guitars play serial transformations of that pitch material. When the drums enter, the tempo ratio becomes vertical and the four guitars trade tempos in that 4:5:6:7 ratio every time the opening theme recurs.

The title "The Norms That Author the Self Render the Self Substitutable" is a paraphrase of a line from Judith Butler's Giving an Account of Oneself. The title "Yarinareth, Yarinareth, Yarinareth" is from Lord Dunsany's Gods of Pegāna. Lyrically and thematically this album is indebted to Ernest Becker's Escape from Evil, Thomas Metzinger's Being No One, Nick Bostrom's Superintelligence, Don DeLillo's End Zone, Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent, E. M. Cioran's Tears and Saints, and the Erra Epic.
