The divine mother stumbles
Cancer wrapped around her heart
There is no fear here
The eyes of gods kept

Infect fingers pry open the clearest cages
Sickness has been made

Father and sons, stoic fire
Sister's tears protect
There is no fear here
The eyes of gods kept

Measures have been taken

Wipe clean my face, rip clean my heart
Death must seem so distant
That reach has not reached me

    General CommentThere are a lot of bizarre control tower themes throughout. Perhaps the fall of some idol equated with the fall of a symbolic tower? No controlling force, no direction, everything crumbles...

    General CommentCelestial is an album that focuses on the dwelling of a person and if you look at it after September 11th, which I have, you feel a different prospective then what Aaron Turner was probably trying to convey, anyways with this EP, which furthers the album of Celestial, which is called Sgnl>05. I personally believe now this album is telling a tale of Nine Eleven through this album, but that is just my opinion
