This EP is largely an experiment in fording the stream of consciousness. Most of the process was improvised, and ideas were rarely revisited. This shows in the production as well as in the music. Please, use your volume knob.

Twinorphan is a working improvisation that began in 2013, the combined effort of Ego Defeator (SB) and Quiverwood (VS). It was conceived as a side project to Soft Unseen, though it has since blossomed into something else entirely.

Track Name: Cinnabar Polypore
Patterns come to speak with me
When sight is compromised by fire.
Weird moons drip along in circles.
Looking forward has become worthless;
Come to speak with me.
Come to speak with me.
Track Name: Near Shores
The sandpiper spoke to me.
Cobbled among glass; crystal stones on the beach.
He tilted his head, ruffled his neck, and said:
"A pale boat will come to me,
Flying on seas of nervous specks.
Fighting for scraps below the decks,
Fighting to find a savior's raft."
Beside borders of cosmic arms,
Shoal away the body farms.
Starry watchers light the way;
Can't tell difference from night or day.
Track Name: Twinorphan
Entering the hole in the moon,
There are trees growing there.
I drink the sap and I choke on progress.
Infinite regress into sleeping spirals,
And I stop.
Track Name: The Flesh Collapse
Track Name: Miser
Sleeping on ice.
No choice in timeline.
There's no more sun
In this glass of mine.
Freezing up the ground
Trying to get out,
But there's no more room.
Not a care in the world today.
