Get fucked up to bear reality Our dark fate is all I see In the city, so many lights To hide a sun that's never bright Buildings like prison walls Crumbling down, overdose Shadows behind windows Vanishing and comatose Twilight zone, we call it home Twilight zone, together alone Dreams turned into dystopia Filthy walls, permanent nausea Air soiled by steam and smoke No joke, it makes me choke Danger at every street corner Darkness of a nuclear winter We see the blood being spilled In the city, silence stinks guilt Twilight zone, we call it home Twilight zone, together alone Wounded souls, we'd rather be dead Freed from the bleakness of our heads Instead, alone we roam Feeling at home in the twilight zone

Bleak 03:18
Am I awake, or still sleeping Sure thing, death is creeping Sniffing cocaine to ease pain Your world is driving me insane Again, I feel like giving up I just don't give a fuck Since the birth of humanity This world is bleak for all I see Bleak Everywhere I look Everywhere I go It's bleak Bleak as reality Is it real, or am I dreaming? In my head, voices are screaming Telling me to end it all Bang my head against the wall Mad soul without a choice My rage is my only voice Life lived behind a black veil Can't wait until my body turns pale Bleak Everywhere I look Everywhere I go It's bleak Bleak as reality

Alone in the dark at night Smoking and writing rhymes Fuck our times, I can't stand it Your world is making me sick Fighting for the right to exist Insist to get dismissed I've tried, but I've given up Out of weed and out of luck Better alone than feeling betrayed Better lonely than being played Solitudinarian, I'm a solitudinarian In my own mind, I feel at home I won't step out of my comfort zone My body's warm, but my heart's like stone In this world, better be alone So I'm lonely, but happy cause free I'm safe because nobody's like me And I see, you still don't get it Solitudinarian, I don't give a shit Better alone than feeling betrayed Better lonely than being played Solitudinarian, I'm a solitudinarian Solitudinarian since my date of birth Your world made me like this And I don't even care I don't need you Only myself

I was born in the stench of darkness Trapped in a cage in a filthy place Awaiting death amongst corpses Those like me have no choices Voiceless, as my throat is slit My blood drips, hanged by the feet You call me meat and you swallow me My graveyard is the human body Inhumane nature Inhumane nature Inhumane nature Simple and plain, my life was pain I was born to die for financial gain I put a name on the practice Genocide it was, genocide it is That's how it goes, I am an animal Inferior being, so killing me is normal Legal, as species aren't equal People are evil, the human race is the devil Inhumane nature Inhumane nature Inhumane nature Inhumane nature Inhumane nature Inhumane nature

Voices 03:25
Woke up from a nightmare In the darkness of my lair I'm running, but going nowhere Damaged beyond repair Hope is lost in the midst of vapor Anxiety bled on a piece of paper WW3 inside my head I hear the voices, they want me dead Voices Everywhere I go I'm hearing voices They control the masses Voices, everywhere I go I'm hearing voices The midday sun is a deadly trap With the outside world ready to entrap Ghosts like us, the misfits, the outcasts The mentally ill, the iconoclasts Off on a self-destructive bender I numb my mind, under pressure The day goes by, the sky's get darker And the voices, I hear them louder Voices Everywhere I go I'm hearing voices They control the masses Voices, everywhere I go I'm hearing voices

My eyes burn from the lack of sleep Drifting alone, six feet deep Loneliness has followed me In every street of the city I'm fully awake in this nonsense Decay, decline, and decadence Got some bad ideas in my head The days go on and on... they don't end Leave me alone, I'm dead Destroy and self-destruct Behind those bricks, we're all fucked Another night, now I see it clearly There has never been any choice for me You see, I'm God's lonely man Suck on this, shit hits the fan And tonight I am out again The whole world will feel my pain Leave me alone, I'm dead.

Kadut ovat tyhjiä Ei mitään jäljellä Luonto kuolee pois Ihmiset on myrkkyä Yksinäinen elämä Kaupungin valoissa Yksinäinen elämä Yksin ajatusteni kanssa Yksinäinen elämä Kaupungin varjoissa Yksinäinen elämä Yksin ajatusteni kanssa Kadut ovat tyhjiä Ei mitään jäljellä Haaveet kuolevat Verisissä käsissä Yksinäinen elämä Kaupungin valoissa Yksinäinen elämä Yksin ajatusteni kanssa Yksinäinen elämä Kaupungin varjoissa Yksinäinen elämä Yksin ajatusteni kanssa Yksinäinen elämä Yksinäinen elämä Yksinäinen elämä Yksinäinen elämä
8.
Standing away from modernity In the woods by my lonely I see the world crumbling down In a fight that can't be won The system is the enemy Modern world, inhumane society Needs created to keep us in line Same old madness all the time Boiling blood, I'm filled with hate On a date with my dark fate Boiling blood, boiling blood Boiling blood Bash the fash, take out the trash Blow their heads off, in a flash I wanna see it all explode Burning fire, choked by smoke I'm sick of seeing us enslaved Seeing nature set ablaze I'm an outcast trapped in torment In a world made for the one percent Alone with rage in my veins I can't take it anymore Boiling blood, I'm filled with hate On a date with my dark fate Boiling blood, boiling blood Boiling blood
9.
The moon shines over the skyline The sky is darker than a coal mine Cigarettes and a bottle of wine No more sunshine, the night is mine Turn off the lights The fresh air on my bare skin Eyes closed, feel the feeling Lurking in the night time No more daylight, the night is mine Turn off the lights Drift and slip as the city sleeps Night creatures, freaks and creeps Our hearts beat in the afterhours Outcasts, the night is ours Our hearts beat in the afterhours Outcasts, the night is ours Turn off the lights

about

As the 2020 Pandemic hit bands hard, Helsinki-based musician Jacques Saph was frustrated with his band Virgin in Veil inability to tour and perform on stage.
The idea of an electronic solo project blending the darkness of darkwave and the cold anger of deathrock came to life in mid 2020, with the release of first single "Voices". After a string of singles and music videos, "Cluster A", Carnal Machinery's first album, was written, recorded and mixed during the spring months of 2021.

The inaugural release from Finland's Carnal Machinery is a blend of darkwave and punk that threads anguished, raspy screaming vocals through icy-cold synths.
