Lyrics

Swinemaker

Foul mouthed, poisoned tongues
Travesties…you’ll meet your god…personify your
maker

Shed your skin and shed your light
Silent chaos serpentine…personify your maker

And the acerbic sigh shall fall

The boundary is torn reveal all I am
The palaces burn down, hear the bleeders sing their
song

The boundary is torn, reveal all I am
The palaces burn down…this plague is all I am…

Smell my rags and taste my sores
You crippled, self righteous whores

Holy wars for holy swine,
Watch the blood run red like wine…assimilate your
maker
Writhe in faith and cast the stone
Lash their hides; your enmity knows… praise be in
the eyes of your maker

For the final life will fall…

The boundary is torn reveal all I am
The palaces burn down, hear the bleeders sing their
song
The boundary is torn, reveal all I am
The palaces burn down…this plague is all I am…

You are not my maker…
You are not my maker…

Forgiven, Forgotten
Jazz Theory

They try to drown us in their flood,
In pools of blissful ignorance, poisoning our
hearts

Lies are all you feed
Practice what you preach
We will not conform…

Fools can’t you see that there is nothing you can do
that will change us…

Or who we are…

And the roots of our souls, they run too deep
Forever’s dying, Forever’s scarred
Although they claw out eyes, we still tread our path
Forever’s dying, Forever’s scarred

They try to crush us with their schemes,
Their mordant points of view, their political strain,
their sheer disdain

Lies are all you breathe
Practice what you preach
We will never conform…

Fools can’t you see that there is nothing you can
say that would change us…

Or what we are…

And the roots of our souls, they run too deep
Forever’s dying, Forever’s scarred
Although they claw out eyes, we still tread our path
Forever’s died, Forever’s scarred

Lucid

So much for little
Ask not and still receive
Everything around me is rotting is decaying
What’s inside is being eaten
Fathom my repose

Watching the parasites
Every prophecy coming true
Seeing another femine coming my way
seeing the pieces of a broken world, like shards of glass, like mounds of clay.

We’ve kissed and embraced our ruin
Tending to wounds that are forever closed
We are torn and still deceived
What’s beautiful is ugly, what is ugly now is beautiful

Is that my sanity before my eyes..
I hold my life in guilty hands
Is that my future before my eyes…
All what is come now is dying

We’ve kissed and embraced our ruin
Tending to wounds that are forever closed
We are torn and still deceived
What’s beautiful is ugly, what is ugly now is beautiful

Let the earth share its atrocities
Lucrative means to justify, apocalypse
Everything that’s around me is frail, everything in fatigue
Whipping the skin off our souls
Always in control

We’ve kissed and embraced our ruin
Tending to wounds that are forever closed
We are torn and still deceived
What’s beautiful is ugly, what is ugly now is beautiful

My Malice

Peel the Flesh off my Bone
Slowly condone
So I may crumble away alone
Must I be denied?
Still Crucified
So forsake me now…oh…

Why can’t I renounce you and refuse you?
When you still bite the hand that feeds you?
I abhor you, how I loathe you…
You rip open my wounds with a smile…

I can’t live to see this world alone
Must I breathe with the nails driven into my throat?
Every time I think about it, every while I gaze upon
it
You induce me to slip into this concave hole…

Peel the Flesh off my Bone
Slowly condone
So I may crumble away alone
Must I be denied?
Still Crucified
So forsake me now…oh…

Why can’t I deny you and despise you?
When you still bite the hand that feeds you?
How I trust you, and still soothe you…
While you rip open my soul with a smile…

Wingless

And when I thought you said goodbye
The wilted words trailed my fears
And when you kissed my heart goodnight
I couldn’t hide my tears

Now the world has gone wrong
All this hatred grows strong
While I still lament these scars
Feelings shattered to shards…

I cannot survive here
Rotting now, within this cage
I will not relive this hurt
Memories writhe in dust and hate

Why can’t I fly away?
You only tore my wings for gain
Why can’t I fly away?
You only clipped my wings for gain

Now, you stab me while I dream

Now, you burn my sanctuary

Why can’t I fly away?
You only tore my wings for gain
Why can’t I fly away?
You only clipped my wings for gain

Solitude

Into the heart if a dying silence
Lost in a world, both dark and unkind
Now I seek the keeper of agony
Will I find the answers within?

Surely not now…behold my doubts have surfaced
My weakness is emphasized

By the shores of Misery
Tides of black wash the scarlet sun of its rage
By the shores of Solitude
Must I swim beneath my drowning?

Into the soul of a shattered illusion
I embrace the pain of memories
Isolation burns the pages of my life
Heal me once, and scar me twice

Surely not now…behold the truth has surfaced
My loneliness is glorified

By the shores of Misery
Tides of black wash the scarlet sun of its rage
By the shores of Solitude
Must I swim beneath my drowning?

And when I wanted you – you weren’t there

And when I needed you – you weren’t there

Majesty, comfort me
Spread your isolation deep within
Majesty, travesty
Spread your infiltration deep beneath…my
drowning

By the shores of Misery
Tides of black wash the scarlet sun of its rage
By the shores of Solitude
Must I swim beneath my drowning?

Story

Silent Chaos Serpentine released in 2006 and the band’s second full length has the novelty of being the first album by a Lankan based Band to be reviewed globally, landing on numerous Album of the Year lists in the US, UK and across Europe. SCS was a departure from Hollow Dreams in style and sound, while retaining the band’s identifiable blueprint but was an abrasive and more complex effort. SCS is considered by many to be Stigmata’s finest body of work and was a game changer that featured live staples ‘Swinmaker’, ‘Jazz Theory’, ‘Forgiven Forgotten’, ‘Lucid’, ‘My Malice’ and ‘Solitude’. Silent Chaos Serpentine was produced by Shafi and engineered by Shobi Perera at Sonexco Studios.
