about

As The Ludvico Treatment approached the start of a new chapter in their creative lives, they found themselves with a collection of tracks documenting that journey. Uncollected, the songs that the band were initially considering leaving unheard, a personal testament to a period of growth - now made public.

Track Name: Roads
each appearing bend in the road
reveals another
bend in the road, breaks away,
divides the rain-drenched
fields.

don't go back
your home is here.

feel the desperate night
closing in
and trapping all the
light around the two of you, ask
yourself what you need
there.

don't go back
your home is here.

and i shall quietly sit here on my own
and write another
song to pass the time, it stings like hell
like the smoke that's in my
eyes.

don't go back
your home is here.
Track Name: Don't Let Me
See,
there’s filth beneath the make up
fear
encrusted, gaudy traumas.
Here
the endless nights bleed colour
I
can’t bear to have you enter.

You:
a light beyond the darkness.
Less
a saviour than a beacon.
Healed
wounds cauterize the candour.
I
can’t bear to have you enter
(Someone let me down.)

It’s all the same to me,
the pain, the sound.
But it seems darker when
you’re not around.

Don’t let me down.

Here
the fear hides under make up.
bathed
in pathetic neon.
Be
faithful or be clever.
I
can’t bear to have you enter.
(Someone let me down.)
Track Name: Panacea
Lucid and ambivalent
On chemicals divine
Disconnect - some slight remorse
The ends speak volumes all

We're damaged enough

Questioning our intent
One might find truths uncultured
Diffidence can breed rejection
Abject vices all

We're damaged enough

Redemption is passé
I wish I was my own gun
Glistening, immaculate
'Til fallen idols come

Feel the strain of fractured arms
Preserved in sculpture
Deprecated and forgotten
Useless monuments

Redemption's so passé
I wish I was my own god
Glistening, immaculate
'Til fallen idols come

Return us our faith
In our abandoned pleasures and
Forgive us our blatant
Worship of ourselves
Track Name: Philomena
(instrumental)
Track Name: Incidental
(instrumental)
Track Name: Listing
Dun shadows hang haunt the mornings
as a smile haunting his sleep.
It’s light because
of the sunrise.
It’s light because
of the streetlights.
He can’t be here
anymore.

Secrets prolonged in his silence
etches away at her eyes.
It’s quiet because
of the crying.
It’s quiet because
of the streetlights.
There’s night besides.

Her words are akin to pleasure
senseless surrealties
that say because
of the moonlight
that say because
of the danger
don’t say because
anymore.
Track Name: Incidental Two
(instrumental)
Track Name: Reducing the Patient by Physic
Though our methods seem callous and vile
Such delusions all come with their cost
No pity in chain-links, no empathic scalpel divides
The pure mind is gracious; the tortured man shackled now lost

For our subjects all substance-controlled
Impositions in solitary holes
Lessen the weight of our culture, asylum-abode
Reckless, despondent all hopeless outside of our homes

Send the bastards and ones you’d disown
Modern physical truths balance mind
Though these faces resemble our daughters
Social graces bring solace in kind

Lessen the weight of our culture, asylum-abode
Reckless, despondent, all hopeless outside of our homes
Won’t you hear me now; hear me as your own?
