about

"Sleep Cerberus" was originally an instrumental piece made by Lex Plexus in 2010. Four years later, Nix Nihil wrote some very interesting mythologically-oriented lyrics and such began the process of intersculpting vocals to create the remix you hear here!

lyrics

Sleep Cerberus (Nix vox mix) - Lex Plexus and Nix Nihil
lyrics by Nix Nihil

loathing, lone-wolfing
beneath the veneer
still sneering
so standing aware
we dream of sleep

danger remaining
stopping the barking
choking and gobbling
guarding the threshold
shepherding three-headed dog
we are cerberus

grooming
the evidence, it disappears
the secret
the sequence (digesting enzymes)
we’re omnivorous
the bones for gnawing
feasting and feeding, beckoning, calling
licking and teething, panting and howling

closing worthless circuits
lay down with the serpent

in the dungeon
deep in halls of Hades
we are the dog "becoming-human"

In pure entropy
we will dissolve In essence
never evolve forever alone

in the dungeon
deep in the halls of Hades
we are the prisoners "becoming-dog"

in pure entropy
we will dissolve in silence
never evolve together alone

in the dungeon
in the cellar
we’re sleeping
just let us be
and leave the dog lie

gaining, closing distance
the smell of your fear, it doesn’t wash off
and turn the lights off
we are the gatekeeper
we are the earth-shaker
we are the hell-raiser
we are so weary
so just keep it down

won’t you humor me
with a moment’s peace?

in the dungeon
stuck in halls of Hades
we are the dog "becoming-human"

In pure entropy
we will dissolve our essence
never evolve forever alone

in the desert
in the crypt
in the halls of
the labyrinth

we are the prisoners "becoming-dog"
encountering entropy we will dissolve
insomniac victim of negated Nyx
forever alone we drink from the Styx

in the dungeon
in the crypt
we’re sleeping snoring
in the desert
in the crypt
we sleep in silence
in the desert
in the crypt
we sleep in silence
