I am in the night
I am every part of it
The consumption of its beast 
The deck that it deals
The veins that bleed
The caress of its serpent

I am the night
As it writhes and undulates toward dawn
It moans and cries a symphony of anger
I am its agony as it struggles against the light
And dies with the strike of the Sun God.

Dave's Comments:

This promotional single is unusual for several reasons: It only contains the LP version of STARVE, presumably because it is short enough that a radio edit is not required. Despite the fact that STARVE was the first promo single, this product number was assigned after that of the second single's (THE END OF SOMETHING) promo. Finally, rather than having any sort of artwork, this promo was released in somewhat non-descript packaging. The reason for the 2 latter peculiarities was hinted at by Rollins in an interview on MTV's 120 Minutes: Making STARVE the first single was a snap decision: Thus, the video for it was thrown together quickly using studio footage and old concert footage. The promo discs for STARVE were thus produced quickly (after THE END OF SOMETHING's promos) and no artwork was produced for the packaging.
