about

Zero finds his place in the hive, though it nearly kills him. Tribal electro beats, insect synths, finger snaps, and African percussion.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Like being torn apart
Still feel her wings around my heart
The subtle scrape of rubbing legs
The stacks of bodies feeding eggs

Now this won’t hurt a bit she said
And then she said, well, so I lied
She must’ve left me there for dead
Never guessed that I’d survive

But I’m happy to be here
Just glad to be alive
So happy to be here
A member of the hive

Yeah, happy to be here
Working with the team
Satisfy my ladyship
‘cause she’s my newfound queen

Mercilessly merciful
Savagely polite
Strangely sympathetic
Itching to ignite
Oddly empathetic
Yet horribly precise
Thoughtfully impervious
She grips you in her vice

But I’m happy to be here
Just glad to be alive
So happy to be here
A member of the hive

Yeah, happy to be here
A sycophantic freak
(re-)born to serve the insect queen
Seven days a week

Like being torn apart
Still feel her wings around my heart…
--
