Reid Luzzader Android Lust's second album is like the first vision of the talented Shikhee, still a fearsomely strong singer with a great eye for vivid lyrical portrayals of emotional extremes. Her ear for rough, rhythm-heavy industrial/electronic compositions hasn't left either, as the crisp, distorted initial riff of "Lover Thine" makes clear from the start, and over Devour, Rise and Take Flight's near hour-long length she aims for full body control, from dancing feet to audio overload. - Allmusic.com Favorite track: Hole Solution.

Andrew Morris Exploring rage, depression, and defiance this compilation pushes you to understand different viewpoints. Favorite track: The Body.

Gentle Asyphixiation For me this album and particularly the track, The Body, are about a specific and vitally important selfishness. The album doesn't gloss over the pain or confusion that stays with you after enduring another's abuse or neglect. I always empathize with it and am encouraged by it.

He says I keep the faith in the only thing It gives me grief it gives me pain It’s heaven and hell in one He believes the best has come and gone He hides it in a special place His lover his life mate He says I do the best to keep you in my arms My money you’re the only one Down in the corner he sits on his hands Laughs in glee and delight at his plans To beg steal and borrow every penny that he can Fuck his dear mother if it gained him a grand He’s a well-respected man of means With a touch of slime in between His lips as words he weaves This wide-eyed fool already believes Down in the corner he sits on his hands Laughs in glee does a happy little dance

Did you stop to think Is it making you question All of that you took for granted All of those on whom you counted Are you finally aware you shit head It’s the wake-up call you needed I see you’re finally moving on I doubt you would be long You need a hole in your head I want to see it come oozing out All your pride and your scheming All your lies and deceiving You need a hole in your head You though I’d quit and run My tail tucked neatly away I guess you failed to notice Unlike your other prey I’ve got a head I like to use I’m not dazzled by your ruse You’d better head on south Put a muzzle on that mouth

Between us Screaming, pleading Have mercy God No relief this strain tried true now I give up Flutter as a dragonfly Try and see through my eyes Fly high there you go How low can you go Don’t you have an honest bone Dragging down this stepping stone, I fall Darkened little alleyway Gutter slime this trying day, I call Hear me as I tell you now This is the way and this is how I’ve tried Fly high there you go How low can you go Between us strange caress Sister brother I confess I never knew Tried my hand in many things Fade away now what remains I’ve been a fool You were never good enough Learned my lesson I can laugh honestly

Hey, come away What see my eyes Ill thoughts on my mind These bitter days We move undercover As crowds deliver The crown to the foul and the dumb Day, come again Pray save my son From the trench and the gun These wicked days The masses are cradled and fed They’ve long lost the use of their heads We are fading fast Our numbers are failing at last So let’s kill a king once again Speak, not again Know you my heart As we stand worlds apart These troubled days

This body belongs to me To fuck to hurt to kill And if I choose to give it all up It’s my deal in the end Do you understand You think you have the right Because you fucked me a couple of times To tell me what to do With this damned body of mine You just don’t understand You say you know it all Trust or take the fall And feed me all this shit about What’s good for me and all You just don’t understand Get it I said it Heed it This time I've got to get you off my back This body belongs to me To take it where I will And if I choose to be unkind Decision’s mine to make Do you understand This body belongs to me To fuck to hurt to kill And if I choose to give it all up It’s my deal in the end Do you understand You think you have the right Because you fucked me a couple of times To tell me what to do With this damned body of mine You just don’t understand You say you know it all (I can see the colors changing) Trust or take the fall Paths beaten dead, you’d have me tread Stained, I’ve already been bled You say you know it all (I can see the colors changing) Trust or take the fall And feed me all this shit about What’s good for me and all You just don’t understand

Sometimes I feel It’s hard to go on Even to get out of bed Search through my head Focus my eyes Can’t take another step I don’t feel right But say I am fine If you should happen to ask I don’t know why My chest feels tight Breath coming in ragged gasps I’ve got to run I don’t know where Away from this troubled mess Can’t take anymore The simplest thing Has me breaking into a sweat I don’t like these Shaking fits My body’s about to drop I cry and scream And then complain To make some sense of it all I fall to the floor I crawl I seek I implore (I know she'll come again) I’ve traveled far But the silent ones Have caught up and come to call Their quiet screams And patience unbound Demand I bare it all (you know)

You’ve set the stage For a revolution Surrounded by those Who share your persuasion I know the likes of you I’d know it any place This mask of a holy man That you wear to hide your face Something inside Is slipping by This thing inside is slipping by You say you’d protect me But you have to change the rules And I should just understand Do you think me such a fool I know your every move I’ve caught on to your little game Still I see you hanging on Go hide your head in Shame We’ll watch you fall

In the beginning There was only you I’m trying to remember Words still ringing true Just like the last time You sought to undermine You sought control And meant gains for you alone But it’s another day And you’re a different man Seems my memory has stalled Words mean nothing at all So I say let it stay however it may I don’t see reasonably how I could be Here for another day

Some have stood still Some have fallen down Some are crawling by Some have come and gone Some have lost all memory Some wish to forget Some have changed their course But I am still standing Hidden from the crowds Beneath these old sheets Tearing us apart Anytime we meet Is this who I am How have I become A stranger to my eyes Here standing

I don’t want to talk at all Leave this once for me It’s not how I want it to be You are not who you were You say that you have healed It’s not how I want it to be We covered a lot of ground Spent so many years All that effort just to bring us here We faltered on our words Resisted all the signs Do we just leave it all behind How did it come to this This bitterness so real Another swallowed appeal Now it’s time I end this game My hands are tied with fear My conscience not quite clear We covered a lot of ground Spent so many years All that effort just to bring us here We faltered on our words Resisted all the signs Do we just leave it all behind Can you see the fire dying Can you see this and end this denying Time is just moving on making what it will of us Some of us still carry on sift and scavenge through dust
