How To Stop Time

This is a revolt to revive a blackened heart. This is a scream carnal and naked before the void between the stars, putting one self in a state to transport the body and the mind, running ones nerves through a type of scales. Scales of exploration, scales of understanding, opening like a carcass to the world. How to Stop Time functions to open a portal in time to heal a void left on Earth from Atomic War.
