An axis in motion distributing ran Into the poverty of my ego Distortion screaming streaming sending Eurythmic continuity skips no double taps Split open my chest and cut out my lungs Sew me back up just the same A stigmata a mutilation Your blood dies with me I can't help but laugh I can't help Help but laugh As I take Knife in hand And castrate my fucking self Would God I could die for thee O absalom my son
Duplicitous chastity preserved for rape As my vicious circle comes around again Pirouetting like a fan dancer Choreographed into the desire for rebirth Or just a wish for death The river of Sai inseminated By Kefka's sulfurous and potent intention A subtle but more penetrating violation Barring divine intervention I count wire guided sheep Each one an exploding bob Inhabitat peopled by the inalienable dreamless
Reeling in the skeins to cable fed simulacra To which I run the feed Sandblasted faces no mouths to scream needless object always scratching This breach in Heaven irised shut It scorns this land without even ghosts Reinventing the wheel so many times I've become calloused to its genius I clock the signal to noise And take suicide capsules now For me the sky has fallen Is this how Braille sounds?
Oratorio in grey scrolls patiently from the top A strip of iron peeled out of a thread Discrete assimilation fouls me like the House of Usher A pet in your goldfish bowl but for you I only float dead Feel visible matter Feel invisible matter There is death in everything We are connected without reason at all You have your way with me like a lover But I spite you because I just want the end of the world Oratorio in grey scrolls patiently until it stops
Neurotic smart bombs fault intolerant Killing in recursive parabolas Black boxes shake hands scoping for shroud lines With ten thousand mile stares Let me share my heart with you As I'm guided by the dead to a miserable end Sstrands of descent and finite life spans On and on if only there could be no more Sleeve Down the vacuum heart Scream The sleeve drags on and on Siege It seems to go on and on Wings A precise outline oh cruel angel That will sever even your golden wings
A ghost passes through you I feel it and I scream Search lights pry at my dreams This is my memory A lonely series Repeats without even a pause Floating weightless Uninterrupted until I exhale Ghosts have no shadows They must conspire for even one Yearning for a solid heart I feel an angel present Glowing drifting I remember tomorrow Spin drift snow screen Floating down in a spiral from an endless heaven above
Poisoned waves of chloroform salt the air without desire Manifest in numb Mefisto in basalt expressed in numbers This alias my orthodox a full sense surround The last few years here seemed a lifetime (Sincerly) alone again I masturbate But it feels more like rape Lean back and bask bask in the sunshine Even it doesn't make me seem seem more alive Poisonous cares without words are expressed How could I resist such a polite feign of death Touch me oh please I want to know that it's real And if it's not it's better just to pretend Violent angel Invaded with madness and fed only scorn Worthless object Follow the blood trails that lead to my heart I turned it to stone so you'd never bleed another drop Try and you try there's a part of me still that will never die
Pattern Blue 01:27
All scrambled inside Pattern blue No not an angel without wings God be with(out) you Matte this smashed facade With AT field Its wings penetrated and destroyed me Pattern blue Gentile Or jew O you who turn the wheel and look to windward Consider Phelbas Who was once as handsome and tall as you (T.S. Eliot)
At last I heard those words from you But they make me disgusted with myself Life choked back into you With ambivalence Familiar closed hearts conceal their loneliness As best as they can When together Even further apart Open your heart As wide as the sky This pain worse than death I just ran away Lonely? Yes lonely But you can't always rise from the dead
Loveless 01:27
I have Never Felt I fell Into Arms That hold me I pass through you Like a ghost With her Fingers (She) so gently Traced the contours Of my face Bringing out The warmth From a place Deep in my heart
Quickening of reminiscence Cradled in radiant Arkham Death is what has been given My emptiness runs Destroy me it is my wish To fill this grave in the air This crooked skeleton tumults In a horrible silence Zoom in and down from in an unnatural way Just like you I have no name
Battered arrays and jagged contours A scaling box that beseeches me Chamber a round into my head From the breach
Between one life and another There is a brittle pitch Painted burgendy and ochre At a steady clip to winter All the moments mapped in our hearts to be relived With half myself destroyed I'd rather die alone Cloud swaps white on grey overcast skirt the deck at a steady gait Scarlet snakes through the glass and gutters in the sun Fiver sleeptalks then forgets what says Like a steady gait from autumn
Jigsaw 02:08
Fell short at once so you tried another But I can't live up to your dreams Start from the outside find the edges Look for patterns in the seams Some pieces fit together wrong Remaining parts seem to fit nowhere But you can force my teeth together If you think that it will make you happy I can see you've grown tired of this game So swipe me back into the box Jigsaw
Rotate Through all The seasons Of Dante A siege Surrounding Watership down Cannot stop Reverse rebirth Always pain In my heart Made from Sorrow To live forever Live forever in hell A moment Of kindness Sullened By departure
Feeling the stones as they're cast at Mercer On a shortcut to the soul of Io A trail of tears inclining obstacle at a right angle One leaden stride to nowhere
Drowned 00:58
Waterlogged skies and orphaned stares Embrace a world of stripped out color Catatonic my gaze is frozen Pruning skin clasped in soldiered prayer This deathscape a gargoyle with its own heartbeat Arteries flow with greying blood Virga erupts in a morphine downpour Mildewed eyes stare straight through it Staring and waiting still Lungs flooded with ether Eyes rolled over black Are you closer to heaven Or closer to hell? Driftwood skin fastened To bones cast in salt Fade to black as lips slowly part Words fail me submerge and drown There is no current just a stagnancee These lungs would rather burst than spare me breath Spit out the air and sink to the bottom Drowned


There are certain records that pass almost immediately into legend from the moment they are created. Discordance Axis' third full length album "The Inalienable dreamless" is one such record. Though previously heralded as one of grindcore's leading lights, this album sent the band sailing far beyond that horizon into the stratosphere of deities, to dole out punishment from on high to the puny mortals who groveled below. It was voted Decibel Magazine's #12 'Greatest Metal Albums of the Decade'. Members went on to Gridlink, Hayaino Daisuki and Municipal Waste.

Discordance Axis New Jersey

Discordance Axis was a three piece grindcore band that started in NJ around 1992. The band started after Jon and Rob's previous band disintegrated and they found Da5e at a Human Remains show. They asked him to play a split 7" with them and it snowballed from there.

Jon Chang now sings for GridLink.
Rob Marton writes lots of music but isn't in a band.
Dave Witte plays for Municipal Waste .
