Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt

by The Bill

The last lines

"Knife me in, hobbling
Talking in its sleep again"

His body is trying to hold on, but he wants to be with the tremulants. Knife me in, he wants to be sure he's set. Pencil me in is the opposite of knife me in. Knife is forever.

"Virulent hives, of bedpost piles"

These are the many machines next to his bed to keep him alive after he went so far to kill himself, virulent being parasitic, even though they are helping him he views it at taking him from the tremulants.

Forsaken deprived and wrought with fear talks about cerpins other forms were viewed in his life and coma life with the tremulants

Who turned it off
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here

Who turned it off, he is confused about his new life with the tremulants after his life(support) was turned off. He can't remember any of what brought him to the tremulants, because now he is actually dead.

Who turned it off, who brought me here goes back to earlier in the album, when talking of death it says

It's been said
Long time ago
You'll be the first
And last to know
You'll never know

Cerpin did all this work in his mind to get to where he thought he should be by killing himself and now he is the last to know how he got to the messed up place he created for himself.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
