Dr. "Buzz" Frenzy (Matthew J Hesse) Listening again with headphones, hearing the intro build, menace growing below the softly twinkling harp, I can imagine this song as a slightly expanded score underneath an intense sequence in the "imagined film" that Eric conjured in in his description of the origin of this tune. It'd be intriguing to hear a longer version of this song with further-extended instrumental passages echoing the main song's stated themes but also expanding them emotionally to magnify the "imagine' scenes' impact.

Written over a span of three years, this song initially came to me in late October 2016 when I was listening to a lot of Akira Yamaoka & Type O Negative and watching slow-burn horror movies.

It is written from the point of view of a beautiful, charismatic predator as he persuades some poor shattered soul into submission under the guise of protection.


Quiet now...
Don't you cry
Damn the tears
Flooding your eyes
Turn to me
I am the way
Take my hand
Won't you stay with me?

Stay with me

I can smell your soul now it's bleeding
Stretching out for somewhere to hide
I can be your solace your freedom
Open your mind and let me inside
I will become the one thing you yearn for
Your pain dissolves into my dark gaze

Bend your will to me
And you will see
When you stay with me
