Ama No Gawa (Milky Way)
All lyrics written by Keiji Haino

cover design: Keiji Haino
is this what it means
to be shown
the way that each and every thing collapses into ruin?
here recognition cannot perceive or remember
a concept outside of time that
offers up glimpses alternately
of "the beginning" and "the end"
from the spinal cord emitting in every direction
a breath that wishes to blur into everything
the eternal geometric translation of installments:
of that deep sorrow from when the universe began, and
the joy of when the flesh is crushed and scattered towards all
already because of this baptism my soul
finds itself forced into the plight of wishing to become either :
this audaciously plotted trap.............
