Nicole_L_R The entire EP is phenomenal and immensely enjoying this gothic/Industrial side of Clemens. Have listened to it on repeat since it arrived. Impossible to pick a favorite track. I am so very glad to hear more of Clemens' rich accented vocals. The tracks remain true to the dark yet enthralling characteristics that are inherent of Clemens' works.

about

"Parasite Twin" is an experimental exploration of darker, industrial grounds expanding the creative boundaries of Wijers usual more symphonic and classical approach.

With lyrical themes varying from the futuristic and massive "Machine", in which the protagonist reflects and confesses the systematic and gradual decimation of his victims, to the title track, in which parasitical twins drag you into their world in a bizarre and darkly humorous way.
"Nightmare" and "Fucked Up" are the most abstract and intuitive tracks. Wijers wrote the lyrics in a stream of consciousness and kept them unedited and pure.
"Closing In" reveals the inner world of a stalker, an idea that came to Wijers after a past experience.

Track Name: Machine (Memoirs of an Algorithm)
I was built at the hands of heartless souls
Obfuscation cloaked in nuts and bolts

I was made to follow
Decimate and swallow
And leave you one-eyed
In the land of the hollow

Machine
Machine

I am here to break you down to parts
Eat your souls and pierce your hearts
Track Name: Parasite Twin
Parasite Twin

We are one and two are me
I am the leg she is the knee
My sister's head is next to mine
She's got my back so we'll be fine
Twenty fingers, nineteen toes
She's the eyes, I am the nose
It's confusing, I suppose
Don't be shy as we come close
Parasite Twin
Under my Skin
She's my Sister Within
My Parasite Twin
Under your skin

When I'm calm, my sister is not
It's cold in here, it's fucking hot
bla bla bla and meep meep meep
God damned I'm trying to sleep
She always picks the opposite
Go Stay Go Sit stand sit
There's one thing on which we do agree:
You are weird and so are we

Parasite Twin
Under my Skin
She's my Sister Within
Parasite Twin
Under your skin
I'm your sister within
Your Parasite Twin

We were born at midnight
When the wolves kept mute
and the moon bled bright
Autumn dying
the dark conspiring

Parasite Twin
Under my Skin
She's my Sister Within
Parasite Twin
Under your skin
I'm your sister within
Your Parasite Twin
Track Name: Nightmare
Let me be your guide
Let me stay by your side
I will stay all night long
And I will be your bride

Countless sleepless nights
And i'll give you for them
I'm your friend
I'm your dream
I'm your nightmare
Nightmare
Track Name: Fucked Up
I've got stuff to tell you
Yeah, so much to say...

You're Fucked Up
I'm Fucked Up
Track Name: Closing In
Give me something to see
Give me something to feel
I want to know
I want to know it all…
I leave nothing concealed

I'm closing in

You can't see me
Watching you
from so near
Let me see
Let me hear
Let me be
Your voyeur
I know you and all your ways
The things you eat
The words you say
I'm watching you all day long
Although it's wrong
The urge is strong

I'm closing in
I'm closing in

Shut me up
Spit me out
I'll take it all
Without a doubt
I live off your life
And feed on it
No, I'll never regret it

I'm closing in
I'm closing in
