about

'Shivers Of Apathy was an EP limited to 50 hand numbered copies which is no longer available.

'Shivers Of Apathy' is an EP written and recorded over Winter 2010/11 and excels to new levels of bleakness for Absinthropy. It is a more minimalist, lo-fi plateau of some of the most personal music and words written from the band so far. It is a 'nightmarish' limbo that nods towards both our first album and what the future has in store.

Track Name: Beneath This Clouded Sky
Beneath This Clouded Sky

Beneath this clouded sky
I see my reflection in your eye
But look inside my heart
We're oceans apart

Through drowning waves I crawl
deep in to the sea
And with my final breath
The water swallows me

I watch the sun set but never see it rise
Now there's nothing but darkness in my eyes

It's hard for me to trust
Even though I must
It's hard for me to find
The words inside my mind
It's hard for me to say
It's darker every day
It's darker every day

I watch the sun set but never see it rise
Now there's nothing but darkness in my eyes

It's hard for me to see
It's hard for me to be
It's hard for me to show
When I keep letting go
It's hard for me to give
A reason I should live
It's hard for me to try
Beneath this clouded sky

It's hard for me to say
It's darker every day
Beneath this clouded sky
Beneath this clouded sky

Track Name: Sylvia
Sylvia

This won't hide your scars
But they're no secret anymore
This won't bring him back
But he's not yours to adore

Feel the tears raining down
Before you even cry
Feel the world go cold
Every time you close your eyes

Take one deep breathe Sylvia
It might be your last

Breathe in…
Breathe in...

Track Name: Far Away From Life
Far Away From Life

Your tears have formed a whole
In the middle of my heart
And I can see us drowning
Like I could see it from the start
The taste upon your lips is the suffering we share
And each sadistic lullaby is a chain of death I wear

All that could have been and was
Every maybe that was lost
The lies inside these photographs
Are taken at a cost
All that might have been is gone
The empty path I walk is long
Solitude is fatal and denying this is wrong

Watch me bleed, like a dream
This tragedy, tearing pieces from me
Close my eyes, say goodbye
Drift away, far away from life

Track Name: Still (Apathy)
Still (Apathy)

Nausea, sickness I implore
My addiction craving for more
Close my eyes to see inside
What I'm feeling for

My eyes, tell lies, secrets, my disguise
Your heart, I stole, wishing to feel whole

Still this razor cuts
Still this body bleeds
Still my mind is drowned in Apathy
Now I say goodbye
Now I close my eyes
Now I leave this life

Track Name: I Will Set The Sun
I Will Set The Sun

Barely awaken
From what is barely a dream
This nightmare will last
Longer than me
I try to stop my mind
From bursting at the seams
Still the pain is flowing
From wounds that no-one sees

I long for silence
When all is said and done
Even when the moon won't rise
I will set the sun
I wished for darkness
When all of this begun
These days are never ending
Now I will set the sun

Now I will set the sun
Now I will set the sun
