lyrics

:: A FLOOD CAME TEARING ::

How I hated discipline.
Teeth sharper than knives.
The scent of a snake.
Backbone avalanche -
Catastrophe! Drown the hounds!
Consume me mighty whale; I am yours.
Teacher, teach me about water and miracles.
Open my lungs for a flood to enter
And tear away the world.
The river bed is dry - refresh my thirst of blood.
Take your money thief.
This is not a rumour: two thousand years.
To the top champion!
And the waves crash down.

about

Theatre Cape Town, South Africa

Theatre was an experimental chaotic hardcore outfit formed in South Africa, in mid-2008, after the expiration of its member’s previous bands. They bring genre-smashing music to the foreground that is both unique in construction and chaotic in design.
