about

Dark spatial asynchronous electronic music made with intuition and feeling.

First came the lyrics and then came the sound.

10 years ago I stopped listening to music. What I heard no longer intrigued me, I no longer felt the soul. All I saw was music produced to earn money. It disgusted me. Art to me is about intention, and good art is created with the intention to communicate, inspire, unite and stimulate.

Music is in the unfortunate position where it might be considered the most powerful art form, in that it seems to have a direct access to the human spirit. Which I think has made it a prime target for the greedy who solely wish to make a profit and the self indulgent who only desire fame.

I don't consider myself to have musical talent in the traditional sense, but I have a lot to give and I found myself writing lyrics nonstop, more than enough to experiment with BX and release the album 'Enslaved by Freedom'.

Venø works with photography, video, performance art, music, writing and drawing to create such art. Ideas of failure, identity, gender and metaphysics are explored by using free association, intuition and attributes of the fool. ... more

Track Name: Enough is Enough
I want to fuck this world up
Fuck this world up
Fuck this world up
Fuck this world up

It is an abomination
It is a distortion

Your happiness is a drug
Your happiness is a drug

Your priority for greed
Your priority for greed
Is an abomination
An abomination
An abomination

You praise the mediocre
You are a parasite

I want to crush you
Crush you
Crush you

Push you down

I will pull you out of every human soul
I will pull you out of every human soul

Your greed is killing us
Your greed is killing us
Enough is enough
Enough is enough

It is time that we left the cave
It is time that we put on the sunglasses
No more MATRIX of illusion
No more shadows of illusion

It is a time for a revolution of the mind
A revolution of the mind
A revolution of the mind

Everyone is not a superstar
Everyone is not a hero

But everyone can say no more
But everyone can say no more

But everyone can find their own centre
But everyone can find their own centre
Track Name: Antidote to Society
I'm the antidote to society

I will take away your candy

I will laugh in your face

You fool

You fool

You sold your sole to greed

I will take away your candy

I'm the antidote

I'm your antichrist

You fool

You fool

You are running in a rat race

There are no winners

There is no end

There is no reward

Only losers

I'm the antidote

Take me in your mouth twice a day

There is no hope for you

You must die

Die you must

For us to be free

I shall watch you die in the name of greed

I shall watch you rot away

I want to see humanity free from your grasp

I'm the antidote

I'm your antichrist

I have sacrificed my soul at the alter of hate

I have let hate in

I have become the embodiment of hate

I'm the antidote

I’m your antichrist

Hate flows through me to the end of time

When you hear my words

You shall die

I command it

I demand it

You shall die

You shall die by my hand

I'm the antidote

I'm your antichrist
Track Name: Freedom and Commodity
I wish I were a whore
A whore
I wish I were a whore

But I’m not desired for my gender

Without power, Men are invisible
Without wealth, Men are dismissible
Without statues, Men are irrelevant

I don’t have that, I don’t want that

Women are visible, when they are sexy
Women are desirable, when they are alluring
Women are relevant, when they are young and fresh, young and fresh

I don’t have that, I don’t want that

I would be a whore, if every one saw
If every one saw, I would be a whore
Desired for my influence and power
I would be desired for my influence and power
My desire to inspire
My desire to inspire would be commodified
In my successes I would faeaeaeaeaeaeaeail
Because al have chosen
Al have chosen material wealth over freedom

The masses enslave them selves
Oh yea

You cannot buy freedom, it is the greatest lie
You enslave your self with every item you buy

Women are desired for their gender
Desired for their gender

Presenting them al with the easy option
The easy option, enslaves them
The easy option, enslaves us
Is that why WHORE, WHORE, WHORE, is a derogative term for women?

Derogative term for women
Derogative term, oh yea

Men must acquire power, wealth and statues
Power, wealth and statues
Before they can become a whore
Is that why male whores are admired and respected?
Admired and respected.
Male whores admired and respected, oh yea

I’m glad I’m not a whore in this world
Track Name: Explore Your Mind
If the purpose of life is to EXPLORE
If the purpose of life is to EXPLORE
If the purpose of life is to EXPLORE

Then we are fucking it up
Fucking it up, fucking it up

Ex, ex ex, Explore

Passive slaves of consumption
Passive slaves
Passive slaves
Passive slaves of consumption

We, we, we, we, we are
Passive slaves of consumption
Passive slaves

Rise, rise, rise, rise up
From your comfort
Rise, rise, rise, rise up

Ex, ex ex, Explore
Ex, ex ex, Explore
Ex, ex ex, Explore

Your, your, your, your mind
You have everything
In, in, in, in, in, in
You have everything
Your, your, your, your mind

You don’t need to be entertained
You don’t need to be entertained
You don’t need to be entertained

We can fuck it up together
We can fuck it up together
We can find a new future together
We can find a new future together

We don’t need the rich
We don’t need the rich
We don’t need the rich

We need each other
We need each other
We need each other

To be free, to be free
To be active
To be active

Fuck all you passive motherfuckers
Who think you are creating progress
Track Name: Sky Dancer
Sky dancer you touched my smile
Sky dancer you touched my smile
With your radiance

I saw you shine
I could not reach
You wore my smile
You gave me dreams


When I felt the truth
When I touched the illusion

I saw you faaaaaall
I saw you faaaaaall

Your bones were dust
My hart was lost


Your bones were dust
And my hart was lost

We wanted you to stay
Stay, stay, stay
We wanted you to stay with us

Gravity could not hold you
A broken body did not deter you


You did not belong among us, no matter what we said, your hart was in the sky

In the sky

You did not belong
Your hart was in the sky
In the skyhaiey


We thought we could be you, we thought we could fly if only you stayed long enough

But the world is not made that way
Even though every day you whispered to us
You can fly, when all your love is mine

You can fly, when all your love is mine

I wonder now, if it was our love that helped you fly?

Was it our love that helped you fly?
Track Name: Cannibal Sea Monsters
The Explorer died alone
Maggots feasted on his flesh
He died alone
All alone on the island of solitude

He had found the answer
He knew the answer

The maggots ate his flesh
Ate his mind
Ate his flesh
Ate his mind
They failed to obtain the answer
They only found greed

Maggots of greed
Maggots of greed
Maggots of greed

Swimming in the great sea of disillusion
Growing fatter, fatter and fatter

Transmuting
Distorting
Evolving

Swarms of cannibal sea monsters
Eating each other
Eating
Eating each other

Leviathan cannibal sea monsters
Circling the seven seas
Roaming the seven seas
Sailing the seven seas
Leviathan cannibal sea monsters

Devouring everyone smaller
Until there is only one

Dominating
Ruling
The seven seas

Everyone smaller following in the wake of the great leviathan Cannibal sea monster

Eating
Feeding
Devouring
Eating
Feeding
Devouring

The scrapes of the great leviathan Cannibal sea monster

Until the day
Until the day
Until the day
The great leviathan sea monster
Runs a shore
Runs a shore
Runs a shore

Great Cannibal Leviathan sea monster
Cannibal, cannibal
Leviathan, Leviathan
Cannibal leviathan
Runs a, a, a, a, a, shore

A great frenzy to eat the great King
A great frenzy
A great fight to acquire the most flesh
A great fight
To become the next Leviathan
To become the next Leviathan

Life is about greed after all

The answer be dammed
Track Name: Mega Minds of Evil
If, if, if
If if, if, if
If if, if, if
If if, if, if

The world was a
Super hero
Super hero
Comic book

Then we would see
Oh we would see
That there are no heroes
There are no heroes

Only super, super, super villains
Only master, master, master villains

We live in a world of mega minds of evil

Endorsing, Endorsing, Endorsing
Mega minds of evil
Mega minds of evil

With every breath we take
With every action we do

Willingly supporting an evil world
Willingly supporting an evil world

With every breath we take
With every action we do

We have forgotten

That

With great power comes great responsibility

With great wealth comes great responsibility

With great power comes great responsibility

With great wealth comes great responsibility

Great power is used for greed
Great wealth is used for greed

Great power is used for greed
Great wealth is used for greed

We are told greed is good
We are told greed is good

And we believe it, and we believe it
We believe it

We eat it for breakfast, supper and dinner

We want more, we buy more

We are the fuel
We are the fuel
We are the fuel for the machine of greed, for the machine of greed

Fueling super, super, super villains
Fueling master, master, master villains

Sacrificing our newborn to evil rotten hands, so that they know of nothing else

There delicate minds
There fragile bodies
Fresh to this world

In the care of evil rotten hands
Evil rotten hands
Track Name: Erase Me from This World
Standing at the end of the horizon
Holding onto dead weight as it pulls me under

Thanking you for erasing me from this world

I'm the greatest magician that ever lived, but none of my spells work in this world

I came from the white void where all are free
I found my self in this illusion of existence
I tried to take of your blindfold, to pull out the wax in your ears

But you would never let me close
I'm finally happy standing on the edge of the horizon seeing the failures of my life flashing before my eyes

You are puling me under with all your dead weight

Thank you for erasing me from this world

I never had a chance
You only saw your self
You thought I was your reflection, YOUR reflection
You thought I was greedy like your self
You thought I did it for my self, like your reflection

But I did it for you, but you never believed me, there was only you

Thank you for erasing me from this world

I'm faaaaalling, faaaaling
Faaaaaaling from this world

Knowing I tried

Thanks to you I know there is nothing more I can do

You did not tell me
I am you and you are I
Track Name: The Sacred
I wan to fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck
Bitches and whores
Bitches and whores

I wan to eat, eat, eat
Harlot and Tarts
Harlot and Tarts

I love them with my heart and soul
I love them with my heart and soul

Together we fuck, fuck fuck
Fuck, fuck fuck
Together we fuck, fuck fuck

I give my heart
I give my mind
I give my soul

It is not casual
It is not meaningless

A whore is not disposable
A whore is not a bucket for my cum

A whore is holy
A whore is precious

Sex is a ritual
Sex has meaning

Sex is a ritual
Sex has meaning

It is not about dominance
It is not about my masculinity
It is not about virility

Sex is not a sin
Sex is not a sin
Sex is not a sin
IT IS sacred

Just as everything
