about

Rishathra formed in Manistee, MI in 1995, but afterwards existed only as a demo tape until 25 years later, when the music was rerecorded at Diamond Street Studios in Atlanta, GA. The resulting album, "Sex with Aliens" transports you back to 1995, offering moments like: goth Nirvana, trippy Chris Cornell, or Sinatra metal for a Blade movie. The lyrics contemplate doomsday cults, black metal cannibalism, F. Scott Fiztgerald, dystopian conspiracies, Papua New Guinean creation myths, Homeric epics, Larry Niven, and the true meaning of bingo

Track Name: Lavender Night
When you felt her
In the dark
Everything's louder at night
We know your abuse comes
From the heart
Will there ever be a cure?

If you fear them, you fear yourself
If you hate them, you hate yourself
If you kill them, you kill yourself
If you heal them, you heal yourself

The way they mistreat you
It ain’t right
Like this lavender night
They gave you a faceful
Of a negative wall
Like a dagger between the eyes

If you fear them, you fear yourself
If you hate them, you hate yourself
If you kill them, you kill yourself
If you heal them, you heal yourself
Track Name: Larvae
I feel so great I'll run away
Flying through a better place
It always smells like therapy
It always tries to change my face

Limbo district limbo knife
Stab myself out, shed cocoon

I've often dreamt of a perfect day
Drugged into a fetal mind
I've made sure to keep it grey
Slain by the thoughts inside

Sedate me, steal my fear
You all take me feel me near
If my wishes would all come true
I could truly leave it all behind

Strapped down on a rocket gurney
The morgue slab is my bridge
The road is made of granite
And it bears their names
Track Name: Zealot
Nothing but frowns
The man in black came to town
In his company they were
All secret fiends

The things that they most dreaded
Allowing themselves to do

Blue morning
After the news
It will not save you

Infected
With the forbidden
Burning black
Boiled blood

They beat their chests
For the head of their foe
Making marks in the clay
A thousand times

We all want to know who did this
And what came over this town

All the infamy
Of that damned snake
Both deep and gray

Infected
With the forbidden
Burning black
Boiled blood
Track Name: Yeli Tree
The firmament is a mighty solid arch
Near to the highest peak the sky was held and fixed
Before we were here people lived
Buried alive in that horrible landslide

Something’s coming down on me and I don’t have the time
When I touch your heart it bleeds and it tastes just like mine

Toppled down and he went far away
Felled and he went far away
Toppled down and he went far away
He went far away
He went far away

Through the holes in the world
They will appear
When we are all ready
Already dead
All of these things
Are gonna happen
It’s gonna happen
It’s gonna happen
Track Name: Teeth
I see wolves hunting
Between the stars in your eyes
Portents are telling me something
Someone is gonna die
I touch the witches nipple
I kiss the hole in your head
I suck the witches' nipple
My head is swimming inside

I'm so in love with the hole in your head

In your head

All my treasure
I give it to you
Only so much experience
For the monster you slew
I touch the witches nipple
I kiss the hole in your head
I suck the witches' nipple
My head is drowning inside

I'm so in love with the hole in your head

In your head
Track Name: TJ Eckleberg
I know I see the shit on your eyes
You swallow all that you've been fed
Flies swarm all around your throat
I'm so in love with the hole in your head

I used all my wishes
To never see you again
Gray like a photograph
On the day that I died

I bite your lip
The worms are digging in
It's your fault
You'll never know my eyes

I know I see the shit on your eyes
You swallow all that you've been fed
Flies swarm all around your throat
I'm so in love with the hole in your head

Blue songs are dripping out
Precious as all sin
Bloated corpses float
In the sea in the sky

I dig a deeper hole
For me to fall in
Save a dead man's ashes
Feel it all again

I used all my wishes
To never see you again
Gray like a photograph
On the day that I died

I bite your lip
The worms are digging in
It's your fault
You'll never know my eyes
Track Name: Sirens
Her hair was just like blood
The water was just like chrome
Sometimes it’s rusted out
Sometimes it leaves

Someone’s brother is burning
Someone’s sister is running away
Someone’s lover is birthing
Crimson mercury the siren’s in my head

If I could drown in kisses
I’d learn to breathe that chrome
If I could fall from heaven
I’d be happy to get home
If I could go unmolested
I’d believe every word you said
If I could drown in kisses
I’d learn
Learn to bleed your red

I must sleep
Through the sirens
Tie me to the mast
So I’m not drowning

Someone’s brother is burning
Someone’s sister is running away
Someone’s lover is birthing
Crimson mercury the siren’s in my head
Track Name: Styx
Show me the crowd
And I'll show you the hype
Hangin' around
With his prototype
He bought it at birth
And it wrapped itself around his throat
He breathed his worth
Into the underworld's moat

Can't breathe unless I'm drowning
Can't be the last to count to nine
Can't break until I shatter

Drown me in the river
Tube fed from the river

Hanging the clown
With his tongue unfurled
He washed up bound
Like he was waiting for something
He hadn't quite drowned
He had one thing left to say

Can't breathe unless I'm drowning
Can't be the last to count to nine
Can't break until I shatter

Drown me in the river
Tube fed from the river
Track Name: Vas Difference
Someone once told me
What they don’t want
I tried to warn them
Who will you be then?
It made me sad you
Have no way to see through
Will you still scold her

When you are older?

It makes a vast difference

I did it without
Dropping my glove
As for all the others
They were cheating
I did it without
Dropping my guard
I did it for all

All the right reasons

It makes a vast difference
