Eden Kupermintz Ebonivory II presents an impressive maturation and distillation of the band's sound. It manages to be both expansive and direct, a modern metal monolith to be reckoned with. The short play time only benefits it and elevates it to greater heights of expression. Favorite track: Heat Death of the Universe.

Track Name: Gravity
I'll find my way
Through the words you say
I won't turn back now
'Cause gravity is the only thing
That can bring me down

I lost my way
But for what it's worth
I'll never feel the same again
Now I tell myself I'll do it all my way
Keeping to myself has never felt as strange
As holding back

I'm not the type to wait and see
'Cause I've seen it all before
And I can't help wanting more

Just like me you were born in the dirt
Don't pretend you've fallen to Earth
'Cause I don't want to know
What you think 'cause I see

That I'll find my way
Through the words you say
I won't turn back now
'Cause gravity is the only thing
That can bring me down

That can bring me down
I know that I don't know
how far there is to go
It leaves me feeling like
I'm alone

But when there's envy in your eyes
I take it in my stride
It leaves me feeling like
I'm alive

And I don't want to know
What you think now
'Cause there's too much left to show
To turn back now

Just like me you were born in the dirt
('Cause I've seen it all before)
Don't pretend you've fallen to earth
(And I can't help wanting more)

Listen to yourself
Dreams kept on the shelf, growing old
As they look down on you slaving away
You were the one to say it:
I'll never fall, I'll never crawl
I'll never look back and think was this a life I lived at all
Do dreams exist outside my soul?

Just like me you were born in the dirt
(Despite what you might think, you don't mean anything)
Don't pretend you've fallen to earth
(Despite what you might think, you don't mean anything)

I found my way
Through the words you say
I won't turn back now
'Cause gravity is the only thing
That can bring me down
That can bring me down
That can bring me down
You can't bring me down

Gravity is the only thing that can
Bring
Me
Down
Track Name: Light the Fires
I heard you say you were afraid
I heard you say that seasons will change
And fears will fade, but you lost your way

Would you go back if you knew
That you would see what you've become
And turn a blind eye to it all
It seems so wrong
to wait at the edge of the world you know
To fall

Fear rules us
It seems so wrong
To wait at the edge of the world you know
To fall

I'm coming back for what you stole
So many days I spent
And all the words I had to say
When you were barely in control
Treating your arms like prison walls
Are they still counting down the days?

Fear rules us
It seems so wrong
To wait at the edge of the world you know
To fall
Would you go back if you knew
That you would see what you've become
And turn a blind eye to it all
It seems so wrong
to wait at the edge of the world you know
To fall

So when you're lost
I'll light the fires
Light the fires
But when you're gone
I won't light your pyre
Light your pyre

Can't you see that it's cutting me up?
And I've had enough
Don't try shift the blame to me
I'm not the one; you are
Would you go back if you knew
That you would see what you've become
And turn a blind eye to it all
It seems so wrong
Cutting you off

Track Name: Heat Death of the Universe
Come back to bed
Tell me the story of how it all ends
I'm curious to wait and see
What you can make of the things that we're blind to

I'm not the first to know
But surely there's not an ending
Where feeling so alone is
All that is left that's keeping me alive

Well, I've been wrong before
So many times before
Vacant stares holding me up
Ambitions stand idle from a lack of wings
Wasting away

There's nothing for us
We've all been dying along with our stars
They're used up
So now we serve the spiral that awaits us
I'm not the first to go
Maybe I'll be the last one
to see the stars exploding
And hope that one day I'll see you again

Well, I've been wrong
So many times before
Darling they're sending me up
And you'll be dead, save for the memories
That keep me awake

I'm limbless and alone
With sensors in place of feeling
Relinquished all control
To serve out my days
And watch the system die

Well, I've been wrong
So many times before
Is someone there, searching for us?
The data was clear from the beginning;
It's all moving away from us

Redshifted; come back to us
We need you here; a home for humanity
But you keep moving away from us

They told me that hope was enough
The stars are dead
But harnessed vacuum energy
Keeps me awake
