Recorded and produced by Language of Shapes in an apartment in South Korea.
Mastered by Harris Newman at Grey Market Mastering.
Skull artwork by Sul Yubin.



I walked through the depths of the city
The grime and the neon cleared and I saw your name in lights
A yod a heh and a shin and a vau heh
And you said you walked with me
Through the blood the shit and tears that within there burns a Christ
A simple truth eternal whispered.

Free to live
Free to run
This shell just a transient vehicle
For a fragment of the Sun.

And so we outgrow the life for which we're conditioned
Spirits free to stretch between the sea and sky
commandments an heirloom shell of a slave race
To extend beyond the shape of our limits
A birthright coded deep into our DNA
Spiral source of all and nothing.

Free to live
Free to run
To move past the abject emptiness
Of the robots we've become.

Free to live
Free to run
This mask just a hollow testament to the beauty of the Sun.

Amidst the silent voices roars a word
Free to live
Free to run
An intergalactic experiment
For a God to Flesh become.
