This song is a heavier, more harmonically simplified structure that build into a massive progressive maelstrom in the second half with a mighty ending. We wanted to show our more heavy metal side and write something with a big riff. The lyrical themes are sexual in nature, about a connection between two people where they use each others bodies to forget about the world outside and take comfort in each other. In Birdeatsbaby style - we mix religious imagery with sexual connotations so the concept is between spiritual and physical. The word Painkiller refers to the two people worshipping each other until the pain of the world is forgotten.



Wild among the strays
This heathen in my arms
Of porcelain

Silent symphony
This heathen of my heart
Steal away my pain
Now come to me

In our hideaway
I am pure in his arms
And I escape

Islands separate
A black sun revelates
A seal to break
Now stay

I crawl with my crown of thorns to pray
To a God of my own divinity
He falls on his knees to worship me
I hail to my painkiller


from The World Conspires, released October 18, 2019
