Disc comes in a HANDMADE case which was meticulously and painstakingly crafted by Zachariah Holte using bits of torn and burnt pages, scraps from old books of poetry, pornography, textbooks on natural sciences and geography, foreign money, and religious scripture. Each case is HANDCRAFTED uniquely and tediously to provide the purchaser with a distinct and wholly exclusive piece of tangible artistic material. Each copy possesses at least two unique, special, and idiosyncratic texts which act as a ceremonious caption to the uniform photograph featured on each copy. The disc also includes a BONUS TRACK entitled "The History of Flesh (Regurgitated)" which WILL NOT be available anywhere else. Only 25 copies made!

I am all of us, amorphous, in the history of flesh;
forever at war with this beast aging within us;
It's face is this mirror which reflects my own disguise.
I awaited your return.
And now, night after night, I lay in your bed drifting through darkness.
I close my eyes...
Do I know where I am?
Do I know who I am?
Sexless, depraved broken by sentiment,
Your hands discreetly disclosing libertinage.
Merciless, dehumanized; wanton presentiment,
Your hands meticulously chronicle this debauchery.
Meadows blackened, broken by anodyne,
Your hands discarding this black rhetoric.
Revenant incipience; bewildered talisman,
Your hands disputing this ancient precedent.
Virginal whiteness; salacious antithesis,
Your mouth agape drinking from this chalice.
Acolyte, proselyte; servant of genuflection,
Your hands fervently conducting this enterprise.
Overture, aria; conduit of alacrity,
Your mouth agape reciting these ethics.
Prophetic injustice; awaiting penance,
Your hands discarding this insipid reverence.
Mirthful ignorance; asprinting towards nothingness,
Polymorphous within this diurnal resistance.
Virulent enmity; godless animality,
Your hands grasping garishly towards endlessness.
Inimical, beweeping; bemoaning this distance.
