When we started this off, I was joyous all around But you pushed me, then you pulled me, then you dragged me down to the ground I try to rise above it all, but this smile’s starting to fade Hesitation--deprecation have left me disarrayed At first we were together in the fight Until I saw you try to dim my light But victory will be ours! I’m always trying to follow what is good, what is true My conscience is my code, but that doesn’t matter to you To you I’m not a vessel of hopes or of dreams I’m just another cog in your soul-sucking machine Victory will be ours! Through adversity to the stars! The hero triumphant will return With mind and soul and body strong and energized You only pushed me down so far Per aspera ad astra I’ll see you from the stars! After all this time, I’ve seen how you abuse Your aspersion and perversions of the truth will surely lose Though you are persistent in demotion that you seek You clearly didn’t account for the havoc I can wreak! At first I hung my worth on your advice No longer will I set so low a price Victory will be ours! Through adversity to the stars! The hero triumphant will return With mind and soul and body strong and energized You only pushed me down so far Per aspera ad astra I’ll see you from the stars! THE HERO HAS RETURNED! Alive... With heart and mind re-energized Through adversity to the stars! The hero triumphant has returned With mind and soul and body strong and energized You only pushed me down so far Per aspera ad astra I’ll see you from the stars! The hero triumphant has returned With mind and soul and body strong and energized You only pushed me down so far Per aspera ad astra I’ll see you from the stars!

Born of the shadows… We are fire Cold dark matter clustering Binding atoms’ energy Swirling elements of first nobility We are fire Flesh of flesh and bone of bone Building empires, stone by stone Bonded helixes assigned to each her own We are fire Born of Stardust, Purple Rain (In cold dark matter) Forged in Mercury and pain See what you are: We’re made of stars Surrounded by mass & energy See what you are: We’re made of stars Surrounded by vast dark energy … and fire We dance in relativity Swapping cosmic energy Shifting red and blue, defining gravity We are fire Born of Stardust, Purple Rain Forged in Mercury and pain See what you are: We’re made of stars Surrounded by mass & energy See what you are: We’re made of stars Surrounded by vast dark energy Of stardust We’re miracles of life But down here We miss the point of being human We’re born with Capacity to love Yet still We miss the point of being human “Oh, we’re only human,” But oh, we’re SUPERhuman Born of Stardust, Purple Rain Forged in Mercury and pain See what you are: We’re made of stars Surrounded by mass & energy See what you are: We’re made of stars Surrounded by cold dark matter and FIRE

I walked a trail of eggshells to stay in your line Now I know that tightrope was such a waste of time I’d stand around for hours on end waiting for your call Turns out I was lucky when you even showed at all Trapped on this joyride, I think we’re gonna crash You’re shifting the blame? Well, you can kiss my ass When it comes to genius you think you’re the king So take over the world, since you know everything Let’s not lose our heads... You come out lobbing orders like mortars with your ego affront You think you're a goddess, but you're not -- you're just a cunt Don't tell me to bow, don't tell me to bend, don't tell me I've got to comply Don't try to patrol me or control me or I'll tell you to die Let’s not lose our heads... Move on instead... So far from where we’ve been through kicking and screaming You dragged me through it all, kicking & screaming So close to everything Controlling everything But you threw it all away You do it all your way How could you throw it all away And you always get your way Just to be mundane, just to be a slave Don’t wanna be your slave I know you still feel something You don't know me I see you're in denial You see what you want to see I'm just trying to save us Not a saviour, but a fraud So don't parade your sorrow Like you're some kind of demagogue So full of hatred YOU MAKE ME WANNA SCREAM You bring it on yourself You're going to extremes Just give up and acquiesce You must be dreaming I'LL DRAG YOU TO THE BLOCK KICKING AND SCREAMING ----------------------- Through it all ------------------------------------------ Let’s not lose our heads... Move on instead... So far from where we’ve been through kicking and screaming You dragged me through it all, kicking & screaming And so close to everything Controlling everything But you threw it all away You do it all your way How could you throw it all away And you always get your way Just to be mundane, just to be a slave Don’t wanna be your slave Off with her head, off with her head, Insisting... Off with her head, off with her fucking head Resisting... Off with her head, off with her head, off with her head, off with her head You dragged my head right to the block Guitar solo Off with her head, off with her head, Insisting... Off with her head, off with her head Resisting... So far from where we’ve been through kicking and screaming You dragged me through it all, kicking & screaming And so close to everything Controlling everything But you threw it all away You do it all your way How could you throw it all away And you always get your way Just to be mundane, just to be a slave Don’t wanna be your slave Off with her head, off with her head, Insisting... Off with her head, off with her fucking head Resisting... Off with her head, off with her head, off with her head, off with her head You dragged my head right to the *choke*

about

"'Let’s Not Lose Our Heads' demonstrated that this new project would keep the heaviness that Tattermask was known for, but was going to amp up the sound by including new atmospherics and orchestral instruments. With an empyrean new name, and musical direction, the cosmos was the limit for Venus Invictus, and with “The Hero Triumphant,” and
“CDM” (“Cold Dark Matter”), the two new songs that comprise their new release Miscellus Consigno along with “Let’s Not Lose Our Heads,” the band achieves their new cosmogonal goals eloquently and powerfully." -- Andy Frisk, Shutter 16 Magazine

Venus Invictus Charlotte, North Carolina

CHARLOTTE, N.C. A spaceship landed in an Uptown park, blaring guitar-driven hard rock as it descended. Its pilots stepped out of the spacecraft into a world unknown, with a quest to transform Earth into a place where dramatic performances and avant-garde music and lyrics rule the land. ... more
