:: SWORDS ::

The dead man made a plan -
Maps of capillaries -
Building a soldier of righteousness.
Candles can't light the way;
Be bright, be bright.
The east is in flood!
Spread the news, light the fuse;
Conquer, conquer!
This is madness!
This romance divine.
Oh peasant man, you take and you take and you take.
The whole earth shakes
And still we stand and watch as words drip
Like passengers from sinking ships.
Take my golden crown!
Kingdom to the King!
Breach the line, move the stone!
Oh, Judge, I am guilty.

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.
