"Shed" is the 4th track on Cape Town-based progressive metal band Zero Stroke's debut EP, "As the Colours Seep".


Empty vessels have gathered here
Mourning as they lay down

Broken words fall on barricaded ears
Confirming what they search for

The mind is on fire
The struggle in perceiving worth
Shed the husk of
Suffering your own rebirth
Shed the husk of
Suffering the earth

It's only a moment gone
It's only a moment lost
There is time
Hidden beneath your will
Find resolution
