Unlight 03:02
Curse my own Cursed by my own Disown Shed like tears into lightless places Be reborn in dark places to see the light more clearly See the unlight and note the contrast This is light now, This will never be Note the contrast be relieved ; embrace the truth It can be grasped
Is it easier to wield a sword than make it a plowshare? Easier to kill than be killed? Suffer -- the world is ending Suffer -- to spare the other Suffer -- or kill and suffer What life have you when you have taken life? What life is left to give when you have spent yours taking others?
Born To Fail 03:45
it's just not true it's false but the meandering mind finds its way there quickly you weren't born to fail you weren't born to lose you were born to live To fail , to lose are conjoined to living Get up, get out, and start living find something to fail at Try, fight, try find something that might kill you Try, fight, try Or will you be crushed by the hammer of lies?


Recorded in an unfinished basement, full of punk energy and black metal vibes, this is the first offering of HELMS. Put the kids to bed early, prep your neck brace, and bang your head!
