about

The Unravelling Calgary, Alberta

The Unravelling is an art industrial rock/metal duo from Calgary, Canada. Described by Pure Grain Audio as “overflowing with a bloodthirsty passion”, their music ranges from the engaging and inviting to the aggressive and controversial. Suite 101 says "This is a band who can combine the alternative stylings of Tool with the adventurousness and refusal to compromise of The Dillinger Escape Plan". ... more

Track Name: The Hydra's Heart
I've got a loaded barrel filled with zeroes
In case anyone tries to be a hero
A little less beast and a little more Sage
Roulette cocktails for the next New Age

Cut out the Hydra's Heart

The fines are high but the protest is free
Get your permission slip and come sit next to me
Who's that hiding in the corner of the dream?
Hyena's child laughing at the thought stream

Cut out the Hydra's Heart

Stretch my wingspan across the game plan
Give the human no place to stand
Stretch my wingspan across the game plan
I Am That I Am

Don't steady the ship
Let's merge with it
Bend with it's will and not fear the kill

The face embraces the mask
The character plays the man
The dreamer moves through liquid fear as best he can
Track Name: Lucky Me
Poor fool crying please
In the gutter on his knees
To win the favor of his muse
To have it all and nothing to lose

Lucky me
I have no control
I have no choice
I've got no soul
I've got no voice

Baby blue gets his breast
Hero of the day beats his chest
The billions get programmed and optimized
As their leaders distract and strategize

Lucky me
I have no control
I have no choice
I've got no soul
I've got no voice

The one you're looking for is not me
No membership...I guess I'm just free
The Universe is in my hand
Why would I need a place to stand?
Track Name: Tear a Hole in the Collective Vision
Ousted from the kingdom
We sit on the steps
Waiting at the gates
Digging for the scraps
You may aim to improve the thing you think you are
Feeding the mirage
Remembering every battle scar

Liar!
Upon the throne of wisdom
Tear a hole in the collective vision!

No one to save
Nothing to search for
Nothing to become
Let the colors run

Nothing to communicate
No word to spread
No power to accumulate
Illusion is dead

For beliefs will fall and knowledge dies
In a clearing the corpse draws flies

Don't be caught off your guard now
Don't be naive
Take off your frightened mask and breathe

Liar!
Upon the throne of wisdom
Tear a hole in the collective vision!
Track Name: Out of the Depths
Out of the depths
I run
Through the terror and apathy
You've become dead to me
Free from bondage and will
I tun
Through the walls and veils of belief
Forward, rest is not tempting me

In and out of vessels
I run
Into the soft caress and the swift blow
And none affect me
A tourist in this world
I run
Like a man aflame
Whose name is of no concern

Fail!
Fail!
Burn the self-image
Fear not what will be left
All Hail!
Mountains bow down
Fear not
The time is now to tear it down

You spoke up when it was time to shut your mouth
I am your twin
I am the killer of the doubt

Fail!
Fail!
Burn the self-image
Fear not what will be left
All Hail!
Mountains bow down
Fear not
The time is now to tear it down

I appear to myself in the absence of time
Slice my hands on the skyline
Arms outstretched into open space
Empty vessel takes my place
Track Name: The Fearless Seed
Bathe in the sandstorm
Bring us to rights
Carry the firstborn through perilous nights
All are shades blending
No work on it's own
Cage them
Separate them
None are alone

Release the seals
Let it bleed
Action now
Choicelessly
In the soil
The fearless seed
Fires of change
Come for me

There's smoke in the doorway
Blue light pouring through
Armies of intent
Forge what is true
The gates are wide open and the guard has left his post
Human being/doing
Face your ghost

Release the seals
Let it bleed
Action now
Choicelessly
In the soil
The fearless seed
Fires of change
Come for me

Longing is a fool's prayer
The shadow knows the man's there
Track Name: Enough is Enough
The cogs move freely from station to station
to see where they fit in the plan
Ready to protest the death machine
With a permission slip from the man

Painting the egg
Never crack the shell
A beautiful actress famous in Hell
A plot of land, pray to maintain
A little piece of the Great Mundane, yeah

Enough is enough they say
And the words reverberate
Each one plays their own drum
And they syncopate
Track Name: No One's Song
The night is long and full of ceremonial fury
Purifying smoke
No inside or outside
Everything bleeding through
Oceans of color bury deep
The thought of I or you

When the tide turns red
Fire in your head
All your foes have gone
Dance to no one's song

Blazing arrow fly
Crack right through the sky
Veil falls to the ground
Strawman burning down

Beautiful
Your thoughts impure
Your failure to comply
Unravelling all programming
Your mind an open sky
Track Name: We Have No Problems
No problems

The waves are crashing high
The tide is coming in
No use in asking why
No time for running

There's no snag on the trail
It's your mind in the way
Processing for all of us
Predicting our decay

We have no problems

Everyone obsessed with the outward force
Programmed with drama and pain
The hopes of the masses dragged across the rocks
Playing the human game
That which concludes spreads
Finality on the open sea
The tower crumbles in celebration
Your face is lying on the ground
Earnest seeker, you're so serious
Don't you know the veil's already down?

Meaning is a corpse...and we mourn

Dogma thrives in certainty
Violence in authority
Pain in opinion
Fear in the minion

No problems

The waves are crashing high
The tide is coming in
No use in asking why
No time for running

There's no snag on the trail
It's your mind in the way
Processing for all of us
Predicting our decay

We have no problems
