about

Elliptic is an artistic breakthrough in terms of song composition, vocal delivery, production, and the melding of stylistic influences. Far more aggressive than the Mystique EP, Elliptic manages to retain a strong sense of melody woven through metal eruptions and jags of creative guitar work.

The spirit and style of Elliptic heralds the sound of future Drive the Ghost releases, seeing a cohesive blend of metal and rock that flirts with both extremes of the sonic spectrum.

Track Name: Lacuna
black from the flames
down to the bones
you watch this body turn cold
nothing is real
nothing to divine
long dead like the fragments of time

bury me
this body, this soul
these fractured memories

universal mind
renew this life

straight out of mind
to break your device
I sift through the mysteries of time
explode through the sky
crashing like a wave
beat the stones
you will never see me break

revive me
the ghost once alive
the tune of dying dreams

recreate this life
open your eyes

move through the rift
traversing the void
one life to live
what is real is your choice
shift to the red
follow your voice
conscious creates
primal forces destroy

universal mind
renew this life
Track Name: Daphne
fall down
this weight
too much
to take
bad things
nightmares
and the blackness of space
we pray, who hears?
no one's listening up there
we die
who cares?

what if we have no soul
and we all just disappear?
what if nothing is real
and it's all inside your head?

bite down
this pain
feel the body start to break
innocent children
fall to the wolf if you stray
damn me
fuck you
you've got a lot to explain
help me to believe

something wicked is coming this way
something to take it all away
something dark
something displaced
something to bury us all in this grave

what if we have no soul
and we all just disappear?
what if nothing is real
and it's all inside your head?

what if nothing is real?
nothing is real

we all disappear
Track Name: June
the streets are bare
we pray you'll return to us
you're a strange love
I'll never know the reasons why
why pain is your heart
and death is your soul

where do we go?

over the waves of time
I feel it break inside
over the waves of time
break me I open wide

the earth moves slow
another force calls out to us
when our shapes breathe cold
we're waiting for the sky to fall
in long rituals
so soon we must go

where do we go?

over the waves of time
I feel it break inside
over the waves of time
break me I open wide

a strange love
return to us

where do we go
in the dark?

over the waves of time
I feel it break inside
over the waves of time
break me I open wide
(a strange love)
Track Name: Elliptic
reborn to live this life
again
path of the mind is elliptic
cycles of endless thoughts
pretend
that we know the way back in

searching these roads for something I can't know
searching these worlds for something I can't know

I'm holding on to time
falling grains of sand
an ode to the glory
of the patterns
that life sends

on strange winds you arrived
again
to show me where you've been
return to worlds unknown
I'm left
we tried to shape the nothingness

I'm holding on to time
falling grains of sand
an ode to the glory
of the patterns
that life sends

I'm holding on to time
falling grains of sand
an ode to the glory
of the patterns
that life sends

there's nothing we can know
chase us to our graves
the mystery inside
a light to guide the way

the mystery inside
a light to guide the way
the mystery inside
a light to guide the way

searching these roads for something I can't know
searching these worlds for something I can't know
Track Name: Inertial
like standing still
in this frame forever
black spiral pull me down too long
my abyssal lover
call across the void
I'm deaf to the signal
all I hear is the noise

I've touched the nothing beneath
lost moments and the spaces all between
do your dreams mean anything in the end?
lie and wait for the glory of life to begin

like broken motions
in a timelessness
so afraid of life
and terrified of death
my disease unconscious
in a heart destroyed
surrounded by faces
but I can't hear a voice

I've touched the nothing beneath
lost moments and the spaces all between
do your dreams mean anything in the end?
lie and wait for the glory of life to begin

like standing still ...

I've touched the nothing beneath
lost moments and the spaces all between
do your dreams mean anything in the end?
lie and wait for the glory of life to begin

do these words mean nothing, in the end?
do these thoughts mean nothing, in the end?
does this pain mean nothing, in the end?
does this life mean nothing, in the end?
Track Name: Deadstar
from other worlds you call
to open my mind
I feel your ghost
I read your signs
don't leave me to die
don't leave me to die

your red halos
through the throes of space and time
your fire eyes
stare across a black divide

burning away inside
this guiding light won't shine
burning away inside
I'm collapsing into night

burn too long
I'm falling from sky

from deepest sky I thought
I heard you cry
I fear you're lost
I need your life
don't leave me to die
don't leave me to die

your red halos
through the throes of space and time
your fire eyes
stare across a black divide

burning away inside
this guiding light won't shine
burning away inside
I'm collapsing into night

burn too long
I'm falling from sky
burn this soul
like falling
from the sky

don't leave me to die

don't leave me to die
(your red halos)
don't leave me to die
(your fire eyes)
don't leave me to die
