about

Brilliant follow-up to the critically acclaimed Resolution. With the help of guest musicians on flute, live drum performances, viola, and touches of her own acoustic guitar, Shikhee adds an unconventional layer of organic warmth to Android Lust's trademark palette of icy electronics.

Track Name: Division
The division is starting to feel permanent
As the rise and final fall of a government
Bitterness as sustenance we carry on

So we reach for the familiar
Disguise our failure
Speak of conditions for the division

So let's climb back to the beginning
Suggestive glance and smoke and laughter at the meeting
Our minds content with limited exchange of information

Now we sit in silence
Ten years for this judgement
Fault mine or fate the final division
Track Name: Follow
Follow, you lead I follow
Shadow, I am your shadow
I do as you do
I walk as you walk
Stray you not lest I be lost
Follow

This hollow I take as my own
Narrow my path has grown
Cover my eyes to better
See as you see
Feel what you reveal
Ecstasy at your command
Follow

Follow, you lead I follow
Swallow all thoughts that bellow
Treasure, each word I measure
I do as you do
I walk as you walk
I see as you see
Talk as you talk
I feel what you feel
Taste what you have spilled
Ecstasy at your command
Stray you not lest I be lost
Track Name: The Want
I ask for water
I ask for sleep
Batteries for my remote
Telephone to speak
Electricity in abundance
Mirror shades
Japanese food
Midnight raid

I ask for silence
I ask for sex
Give me a ray gun
Tell me how to dress
Call my mother
Call the priest
Tell them my lover
Has turned a beast

This situation is now as old as anything
My eyes see in the darkened
Space of this existence

I ask for strength
A clear head
Maybe a razor
To paint you red
I want radar
I want a light
I want division
I want to fight
Track Name: Unbeliever
So I stare into the gray dawn
Watching as the light creeps out of the sky
Illuminating all I desire
Out of reach just out of reach
But once more I want to try
Try to touch
I want to believe
Believe it's possible

And I feel
Afraid yet hopeful
Just a little bit hopeful
And I don't care
I want to believe
Believe it's possible
Track Name: Sex and Mutilation
Have you ever seen such beauty
Just dripping with anticipation
Lying open
It's almost divine
