about

Beasts from a Silk Womb is UNIVORE’s loose interpretation of the modern and traditional mythologies of the end times, as predicted both by societies’ deliberate or incidental adherence to cyclic cosmology and by the frequent overzealous portraits of the rapture phenomenon put forth by multiple religious sects. Beasts From A Silk Womb is the confluence of apocalyptic imagery and the expected human responses of preparation, celebration, and defiance to the end of the world, all of which are proven moot as more such predictions fail into the 21st century.

The album is thirty-four minutes in length and features eight new original tracks:

888 (inst.)
Humanity Family
Beast From A Silk Womb (inst.)
Lay The Hands
That Changes Everything
Together With You
Ice Trust (inst.)
Victory Days (Victory Ways)

UNIVORE recorded, produced, and mixed all tracks at their home studio, Chubby Luggage, in the East Village neighborhood on the west side of Chicago, formerly a warm, shallow sea pregnant with the now-fossilized plant spores and crinoids of the Silurian period until it all hardened into limestone bedrock. The recording was made with the use of guitars, bass, electric and acoustic, synthesizers, beat sequencers, acoustic drums, an air-conditioner, human voices, and tambourine.

Track Name: Humanity Family
Humanity Family

Fooling around with hot explosives
Is not a healthy way to be seen
Running around like a headless chicken
Is not an executable scheme

Humanity, when will you ever learn
Your family, it takes so long to burn

Swimming around in the salty ocean
Is not the only way to get drowned
Flying around used to the be future
But now we dump trash in the clouds

Humanity, when will you ever learn
Your family, it takes so long to burn

Toying around with a man’s emotions
Is a cruel and unusual game
Waiting around just to watch him suffer
Is not the most noble of aims

Humanity, when will you ever learn
Your family, it takes so long to burn

We don’t need to cry out loud
We just get by
Living with our arms out wide stretched to the sky

We don’t need to cry out loud
We just get by
Living with our arms out wide stretched to the sky
Track Name: Lay the Hands
Lay the Hands

This is the part that I dreamt about
This is the part that I have dreamt about
This is the time that we start to shine
This is the time that we must start to shine
We always take the chance to compromise
It’s a time to fantasize
And to put the third eye on the prize
Let’s lay the hands
Let’s lay the hands
Let’s lay the hands
Let’s do it again
Lay the hands

I can’t choose to believe and I can’t believe to choose
I don’t know what to do
(Lay the hands)
I need more information, I need more information
I don’t know what to do
(Lay the hands)
Can’t trust things blindly, can’t trust things blindly
Can’t trust things
(Lay the hands)
I can’t choose to believe and I can’t believe to choose
I don’t know what to do

This is our chance to dance the dance
This is our chance to dance the ancient dance
This is the place we come face to face
We come face to face with the human race
We all must take a bow just once in life
It’s a time for sacrifice
It’s a time to have our paradise

Let’s lay the hands
Let’s lay the hands
Let’s lay the hands
Let’s do it again
Lay the hands

I can’t choose to believe and I can’t believe to choose
I don’t know what to do
(Lay the hands)
I need more information, I need more information
I don’t know what to do
(Lay the hands)
Can’t trust things blindly, can’t trust things blindly
Can’t trust things
(Lay the hands)
I can’t choose to believe and I can’t believe to choose
I don’t know what to do
Track Name: That Changes Everything
That Changes Everything

I thought of everything
Extra batteries
Cans of food to eat
First aid and bandages
Matches for fire

I heard some people say they heard there’s safety in the ocean
So now I’m going to walk in the direction of the ocean
I wonder if it’s true about the safety in the ocean
I only wish they would have specified about which ocean

It changes you
It changes me, too
The changes inside a shattered mind

I thought of everything
Purification pills
Rifles and knives to kill
Blanket of wool to wear
To keep out the frost bite

I heard some people say there’s cannibals up in the mountains
So I’ll make sure to keep a keep a distance from those mountains
I hope it’s just a lie about the terror in the mountains
Cause I don’t want to have somebody eat me in the mountains

It changes you
It changes me, too
The changes inside a shattered mind

That changes everything
Conditions improving now
The atmosphere’s calming
Poles have stability
Nobody’s screaming

I heard some people say it was a momentary rapture
But I’m not even certain what they mean when they say “rapture”
So I don’t know a thing about this momentary rapture
I’m just so relieved I wasn’t burned up in the rapture

It changes you
It changes me, too
The changes inside a shattered mind
Track Name: Together With You
Together With You

I don’t care if we’re never together as long as I’m with you
It doesn’t matter if we’re never together I’ll always be with you
Always with you is the way it is forever as long as I’m with you
I don’t care if we’re never together as long as I’m with you

I could last in any kind of weather as long as it’s with you
Rain and snow and sleet all mixed together I’ll always be with you
Forever with you is the way we’ll be together as long as I’m with you
I could last in any kind of weather as long as it’s with you
Track Name: Victory Days (Victory Ways)
Victory Days (Victory Ways)

Playing games to win
Is the only way to play games
And being well-behaved
Is not the only way to behave
Yes, stand on the throat
Of the man who stands in your way

There were some days when we only had money honey
Meaningless days
Meaningless ways
Now are the days in the land of the honey honey
Victory days
Victory ways

Grapes, feed me grapes
And fill my chalice with wine
And wrap me in finest silks
And parade me through the town
Yes, horns sing out my song
It’s the only song to sing

There were some days when we only had money honey
Meaningless days
Meaningless ways
Now are the days in the land of the honey honey
Victory days
Victory ways
