Track 2 off of 'The Conflict is the Illusion,' this song was written by Telos, and reflects some of his stylistic contribution to the record. Its melodic vocal arrangement is a welcome development in the sound. This short song became the fulcrum of the EP, a weird little track with ominous implications. Its our 'Sleeping Village.'


What middle way is left?
What direction do we take,
When both ways lead to an end we are not ready to face?

What are These Dreams for?
I'm not yet awake.
The alarm goes on and on...

That which I call my Will is but a mechanism of my Nature.
That which I call my Nature is but a mechanism of my Will.
There is no conflict.
There is no conflict.
