Winds of Avarice is the second track off of Atherial's 2012 EP "Abolition".


Proliferate your landscape
Bear the weight of the caskets
Forced upon, preconceived, cemented
Fill the fissures in lamenting

The vice of the voyager
Patronage relinquished
Blind witness

I, blind witness, I feel

Cists and calluses: fire aspire
Cist – Callus – Fire - Aspire
Ulcer, scar: fever inquires
As to the nature of your heart’s desire
I feel that voice in the back of the choir
The eyes of a masked messiah

The messiah

At the seams snipped
Karma delivered
Streams permeate: fruition, change

Static halos shatter
The stone strains
The steel shifts in the winds of avarice

Fortunes cleft of fortitude
Morphing materials
Matrimony of the mind and the means

They form a pinhole through which to see
And a valley of vines in which to sleep

Now you spearhead the highest virtue?
Sing your seething song

We may walk as two blind witnesses
In the winds of avarice
