about

Pyrrhon New York, New York

"Outré as they get, everything Pyrrhon do emanates from an obsidian death metal core - just that this music is that much more expressive, its impact that much more disquieting than almost anything else in the genre."

Track Name: Statistic Singular
I saw a man crushed in the subway
Four years back
Some college kid from Queens

Traded shoves on the platform
With some desperate debased drunk
Who dragged them to the tracks
As the train came
His scramble too slow by a second

Surprise on his face
When they wrenched his pulp
From between the car and the platform
I was gone by the time he died
Gasping in the ambulance

There must’ve been hundreds
Who saw him there stricken
Their voices burst forth fluid
And we all drowned in the flood

The sight of him sodden in unwilling eyes
His life seeping down into concrete
Into the records that name and contain us
When our lovely shells are gone

The numbers go up and up
But the sum never makes sense
Track Name: Ashes To Alveoli
Dust in major urban centers
Mostly consists of human skin cells
It's always good to know
Where your friends are
Track Name: Motivational Speaker II
Try harder
It's not good enough
Work harder
It's not finished yet

It doesn't hurt bad enough

You're not you without failure
You have no name but weakness
Track Name: Crystal Mountain
Built from blind faith, passed down
From self-induced fantasies
Turn a page to justify

Conjuring power, it opens wide
On your seventh day
Is that how it's done?
Twisting your eyes to perceive all that you want

To assume from ignorance
Inflicting wound with a cross-turned-dagger

Inside Crystal Mountain, evil takes its form
Inside Crystal Mountain, commandments are reborn

All the traps are set to confine
All who get in the way of the divine
In sight and in mind of the hypocrites
A slave to the curse, forever confined

Shatter the myth, don't cut yourself
On your words, against dreams made of steel

Stronger than any faith
That inflicts pain and fear
Is that how it's done?
Twisting your eyes to perceive all that you want

To assume from ignorance
Inflicting wound with a cross-turned-dagger

Inside Crystal Mountain, evil takes its form
Inside Crystal Mountain, commandments are reborn
