about

The Viperfish is large and an efficiently deadly creature, effective in its mesmerizingly extravagant and leeringly conspicuous state. However, the biggest monsters are those unknown in the infinite depths of the black abyss. Only heard if they want to be heard, only seen when wanted to be seen. The biggest machines in society are those that are hidden in plain sight, out of knowledge and out of mind. Un-perceptible to the common eyes, illusive to the masses. To gain power and build a legacy under the radar and unknowingly, is the greatest aspiration of all. True power lies in the unmatched tyrant, that hides just below the surface, concealing the state and existence of his inverted pyramid, his shrouded empire, that spans from middle earth down to the depths of hell.
Craft a mask that conforms to the lines and curves of your demented face, to bury the lost smile that disappeared upon deterministic conception. To deceive those close, is to intimately love. Fabricate a web, spinning delicate and luscious string to intricately lace throughout networks of your life and surpass Dunbar’s cognitive threshold. Become the puppet of the immortal spirit, and let greed wash over as a waterfall and stain your soul black as oil to kindle the flames and ignite the hidden drive within. Symphonies of investment entities are ingrained in your mind. Household names influentially operate on total visibility and exposure. The biggest threat, yet biggest aspiration, are those who don’t need it. Help is not provided to the visibly weak, but to those whom it will not benefit.
The ships of Newport and privately owned fleets of Lopez hid from the standard pages of history, piled forth fortunes and expanded their reach into multiple ventures and investments, crumpling perceptual fabrics of time while ferrying souls of the dead across the Atlantic. Ink vanishes from pages and archivers flippantly wash away ancestral memories. Hebrew blood boils in 1749, while doors open to those seeking light. Children of Abraham beg for fairness acceptance and equality, to eliminate bigotry and persecution, however Seixas speaks, his tongue dancing and twisting for the father of an infant nation, preaching his mantra: “Love the power of silence.” Too difficult it may be, after hoarding endless plunder and expending unimaginable riches, to recall the reflection and realize the hypocrisy they exude. Ethics and morals are subjectively determined by a societal dependence on geographic location and age, driven by public self-perception and virtues.
Modern companies follow suit, not adhering to morality, but digging trenches deep for economic profit. They base themselves in foreign lands, operating on home soil, known only through their sub-contracted aliases. They leech upon the contagious consumerism that plagues the world, glaring observantly through a clandestine shadowed veil. Unfathomable numbers wither, shrivel, and drown while the great unknown achievers, untold success founded on these sickening principles, follow suit with mere minor adjustments to slowly poison average minds, respectively weakening their monetary state of being. Sacrifices for the benefit, modified to sapping life and planting their roots globally.
Their vines humanely slithering around our necks, choking the grinning ignorant. Read the signs, pick up the clues and deprive your neighbor of your monetary actions while concealing intentions. Claim no restraints, Darwinistic principles apply, for in the end the only concern is progress. While pursuing unholy objectives, avoid direct side-effects of violent trepidation. Let ambitions be silent and vicariously unfettered by the overwhelming idols that are played as pawns, shaped like clay, and molded by respective desires and inhibitions.
I have presented both your current state and an extreme, the varying degree by which you now pursue is your choice.

lyrics

The biggest monsters are the ones that are not there
Out of sight and out’ve mind
Building your empire,
Kindle flames and ignite

Ink vanishes from pages of old,
Children of Abraham, hypocrisy
Love the power of silence

Glaring observantly through a clandestine shadowed veil
Your vines, slithering around our necks
Choking the grinning
Choking the grinning ignorant


Ethics and morals are subjective to
Societal dependence. History and location,
Driven by public self-perception and virtues

The trenches deepen, consumerism plagues
You’re gunna reach your goal, their minds are in a box

Glaring observantly through a clandestine shadowed veil
Your vines, slithering around our necks
Choking the grinning
Choking the grinning ignorant

Give me the sign
Fabricate a web
Spinning your string
Delicately

We are the masses struggling for necessity
You pay for your right to believe
With larger donations, generous lie
You build your shrine, build your shrine,
But keep it away from me

I’m glaring observantly
Through a clandestine shadowed veil
Your vines, slithering around our necks
Choking the grinning
Choking the grinning ignorant (x2)

The biggest monsters are the ones that are not there
Out of sight and out’ve mind
Building your empire,
Kindle flames and ignite
