"NIGHTWAVES (performed by 'Hopus Dei'): Nighthawk and Osirah move once more by night with Ruby in tow, past burning cities aflame with rage and reactionary rioting. For the pedantic and calming message of 'The X + I' has had an opposite affect [sic]: as all citizens of the world have been sold systems of total control in exchange for access to every single detail of human existence; with a promise that all will be safe, and forever. So in fearing rightly for their lives, the heroes of 'Hopus Dei' have thrown away their phones so they can move about untraced; restlessly in search of safe harbor at the home of the one soul who might take them in: Dr. Aesh." (ATUM story notes)



On splintered glass, we creep
And while this town's asleep
I am prone to weep in a violet storm
So lay my wreath as fault
And waste your prose on all
These nights a'int worth their out
On circles alone

Oh my, how the mighty smite
What smoulders, what survives
To destroy all that needs to turn
So everything'll turn out right
There I go again

Come, oh come as doom
As windows to the room
So it's too soon
We whistle to that tune of 'ophelia'
And die until we'll die no more

There I go, again
Casting doubt and then
Leaving home to mend this broken world

Come, oh come as doom
As windows to the room
So, it's too soon
I miss ophelia
Who died until she was no more

So there I go

With my pal, 'ol dread
Forbidden cities end
And no friends amend
This debt of air
Are we null at keel
Where mistakes appeal
And mandrakes stomp their heels
On our circles alone
There I go
