VALIS 03:57
You're my salvation but seeing only through your eyes I resurrected, I'm the same in a different guise I am standing on the edge, on the edge of time And I have saved you once before in a distant life I am the same, I'm the same in a different guise The information kisses me with beautiful light I hesitated and from what I lost I gave up, I gave up, I gave up, I gave up my mind I gave up, I gave up And now I'm naked, I'm naked but I remember you I remember you, do you remember the truth? I see a shadow of a twisted hand across my house, across my mind I am the same, I'm the same in a different guise I tried and I tried to resist the will to, the will to, the will to exist I can't find my reason, my reason, I can't find my reset It's so confusing, confusing to breathe without, without thinking It's so confusing, confusing to breathe without thinking, without thinking

about

Work on Divine Invasions began as soon as the first album had been finished back in September 2019. The first album saw sparing use of guitar, instead mainly writing around piano. When it came to writing the second, Sanders and Barnett didn’t want to fall into the same routine, choosing to embrace exploring new sounds, experiment with new effects, making guitars sound like synths and using vocals for the first time. The album began taking shape at Ritual Cloak’s studio HQ in Cardiff, but lock-down forced the pair to work separately, and in a very different manner than before. However, this change of circumstance proved extremely fruitful, and has resulted in a collection of songs that would otherwise have not come together had Sanders and Barnett continued to work in their traditional ways.

The title Divine Invasions is inspired by the Philip K Dick biography. Dick was plagued by nervous breakdowns and driven to near insanity by visions of God.
