The Arcane Insignia's second single, "Car(di)nal & (Sub)liminal" has been described as their most accessible Song, and serves as a great reminder of the talented performers who played in the recording.



Passion clashes with reason

There's a never ending conflict

Between inner child & consequence animosity

Leaks & drips in the heart room as this inconvenient morality

Gladly shows you how wrong you've always been

& that it is the abyss that must cross you


Emperors will kneel before you

God himself will admire you

& until time fails men (to function) I will adore you

A cyanide messiah preaches through your veins calling

Cristal dolls (who) Sing an ode to satisfy an infant muse

& behind these silk walls shrouding both motivation & belief (2X)
