'Vanishing' is the first song to be released from the upcoming debut LP by Mutes, to be released in the Summer through FOMA records.


Torn by disembodied lust
The ghost of giving up has left my body, black, to rot.
Forbidden afterthoughts
Hard living in the shadow of my afterbirth for too long.
Inciting history every time.
No chance to redesign my mind.
This fatal fantasy defies my age, one breath too late.
Why does it seem like so long?
My love is so conditional. I can't relate at all.

In fond remembrance of some surface cut,
No night these days stays hard enough
Three lifetimes shedding skin is not enough
To keep the horror catching up with me.

She paints the eyes on my killing machine.
