(WANING) Sacramento

(waning) began life as a dark ambient duo consisting of Susan Hunt and Jim Willig. After many CDr releases, the duo found strict ambient music to be limiting, and added drummer Scott De Medeiros, with whom they recorded Always Ending. The band continues with new members Benjamin Carpineta and Ian Black. (waning)’s sound has expanded, tying together strains of doom, post-punk, and shoegaze. ... more

Track Name: Binary
My brother
Long may you burn
My sister
Long may you burn

My brother
Long may you burn
My sister
Long may you burn
Fires in the night
We light the
Path through the void

Old light dies down
Across the black
Old light dies down
Reach further out
Old light dies down
Beyond the edge
Despite our wish
All things move toward the end

Let the embers fade
Let the light drain away
Let the cold into me
Let sorrow cover me

The lifting of the veil
The blinking of the eye
A history goes by
How could we be the center?
Track Name: The Onliest Ones
We are The Onliest Ones,
We come in the night,
We scream with our tiny voices,
We put our hands into your wounds.

We must be close to you,
We must be inside of you,
We are not yours alone, but you belong to us,
You cannot stop us,
You cannot keep us from what we need
You cannot keep us from you.

You give us your heart,
We fill it with poison and disease,
Then we make you eat it,
We watch you struggle,
We bask in your fear,
The warm red liquor,
We will have it,
All of it,

We are The Onliest Ones

We want to touch you inside,
Our eyes may be blind,
But we still see you,
Our ears are large and pointed,
Our hands have sharp claws,
We gnash our teeth and tear at your wounds.
You are ended!
Track Name: Shadows on the Seawall
Somewhere between now and then,
Shoreline turned to glass in nameless fire.
Below the surface lies,
All the remains of our past life.
This mirror stretches on into the dawn,
Our shadows dim.
Break through this liquid sand,
Turn the hourglass on its end again

Creatures trapped on the shore,
Under glass they wait -
Bodies incandescent,
Shining through the waves

Our shadows on the seawall,
Our ashes on the bay
Our ruins floating seaward,
Soon to evaporate

Sunfire drown
Raise our twilight
Into the night
Before new dawn
Track Name: Transdimensional Incursion
We watched the clouds split open,
The watchers descend,
Without warning, the end,
Fire, lift me up,
Into the falling sky.

Fire lift me up,
Into the falling sky

Watch me rise,
Watch it burn.
Track Name: Ossuary
These eyes go blind,
This skin cracks and dries,
These bones crumble,
Lost in the dream of another.

Our names forgotten now,
Our bones are cast aside,
Shrouded in silence now,
We wait for nothing, nothing,

Dawn fades,
Day fades,
Dusk fades into night.
Track Name: Lift Your Veil
She steals the stars from the sky,
She spreads her hands out wide,
She brings down mountains with a word,
She chokes the world with her light

Mother Night, lift your veil!

In the sky-light,
It is too bright,
Deprives us-sight,
Of the stars at night
Track Name: Never Still the Whip
With nothing to light our way,
But the distant stars,
We bring our drums and lovers,
to the signing stone,

With nothing to light our way,
But the distant stars
waiting at the top of the world,
for the city to fade.

We so wanted the world to end,
But now it seems to every day,
We just want a little more time,
To fix the error in our ways.

Past time has gone,
The lights still glow,
We never still our whip
Backs broken in the light of the moon.
