Vitruvian Experience Day 4

Our Story

Since our last release we've come a long way thanks to you all! Because of your support we've been able to get our music out nationally and beyond. We can't say thank you enough, and we put a video together explaining some of the differences between putting out our last album vs. this one.

"We wanted this album to be the next evolution of the Veio sound."

Pariahs - detestation, resentment, hostility

Pariahs is a song rooted in a major flaw in human existence... the willingness and often impulsive feeling to despise others who are not like us. Whether warranted or not, we can find ourselves in situations that fan the flames of unruliness instead of working towards resolutions and understanding. Oftentimes we dont even know this other person or situation well enough to be reacting to it but yet once blood is in the water, we cant help but to pounce through voice or keyboard, setting aside the fact that people are really not any different from one another.

We will be continuing our "writing Vitruvian" series up through the album release! Stay tuned

Dolos - deceit

The lyrics of this track center around deceit, deception, and lying tongues.  Often times we come across those who are willing to say anything and present themselves in a manner of untruthfulness to who they really are.  Many try to sell themselves as a better package than is true.  It is also very easy to manipulate situations and events through words to present matters in a way that sheds favorable light upon oneself whether truthful or not.  Dolos, in greek mythology, is the spirit of trickery and guile and a master at cunning deception.

PARIAHS

As your love becomes anesthetized and numb
Climbing haughty mountaintops
Crass intent, a cracked reflection and a broken will to stand
You cry for blood, veiled

From half a world away
They clamor words profane
Hiding under names
A fount of blood and rage
In a fit so bitter
Casting cursor stones
Do you know their center
Do you know your own

As fervors rise
Painting with ire in your eyes
Violently wailing

*Off with the heads of pariahs
Ache for bane, abhor, stacking the pyres
Off with the heads of pariahs
Arid for loathe and gore, vile and dire

From half a breath away
Amity is feigned
Closer now the stakes
With intimate distain
Plaster saints cause tears like the rain
Do you know their dreams
Counting teeth with violent screams

**

Arid and loathing
Vile and stacking pyres
And if you want graves
You'll have to dig yours too

Plaster saints veiled in rage cause tears like the rain

As your love became anesthetized and shamed
A cracked reflection maimed, you cried for blood

As fervors rise
Painting with ire in your eyes
Violently wailing

**

Arid and loathing
Vile and stacking pyres
And if you want theirs
You'll have to take mine too

Plaster saints veiled in rage cause tears like the rain
