I see right through you, your monkey heart Your nervous breath, the foul mouth I see right through you, your bended knees Your frivolous words, your philosophy I see right through you, your persiflage Your wolf hunger, your jolly laugh I see right through you, your fleas and your ticks Your cavities, your snake tricks I see right through you, your angel lust Your death erection upon the cross I see right through you, your transparent skin Your drool, your tongue licking I see right through you, your lockjaw Your fundament, the dancing vertebra I see right through you, your smile and sweat Blood pulse and the soft part of your neck I see right through you, the clock ticking Cocks and crosses and backstabbing I see right through you, I see right through you Don’t let me see right through you They say the world must be destroyed Must be destroyed Must be destroyed Don’t let them think you ’re broken

The Coming 03:47
Here comes a picture and a starry night Here comes a hotel room and blinking lights Here comes an envision of a woman by the sea She screams my name, desperately Here comes the folding knife and a curious grin Here comes trouble, she’s off wandering What will they say, what will they say Here comes the foul mouth, slanderous Here comes a mysterious stabbing, was he drunk? Did he hit on her? Did he hit her? Here comes laughter in the alleyway The dance you’ve been longing for, death as a gentleman Father, you may rest here drunk among the graves Mad from drink, drunk on insanity Mother, you may well read your magazines among the dead Something out of the ordinary play in your head Here come howls like laughter and a broken mirror The gun draws blood, the knife retaliates Beware, he’s on your back, his shadows are different Luckily you are already among the ghosts There’s that laugh again, scorning, bellowing You pay your dues in the pit for a manoeuvre like that Let him flee, let him flee Here comes freedom, but only for a while Here comes the law, strong manly law In the spotlight you try to escape, you heave-ho Ghosts you can always run from You can’t escape yourself, madness leaves no victim Here comes the baton, there’s no return You suck that weapon, you suck those kisses Well, well, here come the pointing fingers And suddenly it’s silent except a terrible scream
4.
In a haze I sweep a corrupt tongue Over sacred ground The hearth crackle in the background And I tap the fluids Let me fill your holes before I hit the ground I flicker along with the shadows on the wall I float in dreams and lick the sweat Cacoëthes, you are my god, I idolise you, I worship I wake to find goosebumps as pearls on the sheets And a smile like a thousand slivered diamonds I am a sinner and I drown in blood I am enthralled by cruel sex and I fall I fall to my knees and die a million deaths In the holocaust of my very soul

I see right through you, your monkey heart Your nervous breath, the foul mouth I see right through you, your bended knees Your frivolous words, your philosophy I see right through you, your persiflage Your wolf hunger, your jolly laugh I see right through you, your fleas and your ticks Your cavities, your snake tricks I see right through you, your angel lust Your death erection upon the cross I see right through you, your transparent skin Your drool, your tongue licking I see right through you, your lockjaw Your fundament, the dancing vertebra I see right through you, your smile and sweat Blood pulse and the soft part of your neck I see right through you, the clock ticking Cocks and crosses and backstabbing I see right through you, I see right through you Don’t let me see right through you They say the world must be destroyed Must be destroyed Must be destroyed Don’t let them think you ’re broken

about

by Kjetil Nernes

„The revolution will come soon. All this will be destroyed. The world must be destroyed. Amen. For years I have been waiting for Antonin Artaud's mad words to catch up with the actual world and THANK GOD for the virus - here it finally is. This is The World Must Be Destroyed.“

Originally recorded during the 'Who Do You Love' sessions back in 2017 - the title track even intended as main single but for various reason ended up as an outtake (!) - these songs are among my personal favourites from this period. They are all inspired by Antonin Artaud's insane masterwork - his 'biography' of child emperor Heliogabalus. Hallucinatory, sadistic, overly sexual and above all just completely nutters.

Produced by the Tall Man himself and the Dark Diva Karin Park. Musicians include Dana Schechter (Insect Ark/Swans), Andrew Liles (Current 93/Nurse With Wound) and tubaist Kristoffer Lo (Highasakite / Motorpsycho). Greg Norman recorded the songs at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago. After 20 years of doing ÅRABROT I have learnt one important thing: In order to rebuild it must all be destroyed.
