Track Name: Fossilized!
i made a gorgon of sound
echoing inward
casting its weight through the ground
and wooden bones
i was a boat on the waves
shuddered and splintered
shearing the soul from the blade

SEA CAVE!

i was
adrift on the sea
i looked around
but saw not a thing
i saw nothing

i was
lost on the sea
I saw a face
but said not a thing
i said nothing
i saw a restless evil this way
Track Name: Sea Cave
crags rips sea foam...
drips riptide brown down...
pools and rocks along tall cliffs...
tossed by waves into the cave
a wolf skin fang, a wolf skin fang
the fins of phantoms drag the daylight down into the deep

crags rips sea foam...
drips riptide brown down...

there’s a creaking in the boat
a wolf skin fang, caught in my throat
the fins of phantoms drag the daylight down into the deep

scalding hand in boiling sea
catastrophe! catastrophe!
when the sun’s extinguished: leviathan diminished
Track Name: World Spear
world spear
in the wolf’s ear
ringing the ocean sphere
new face

welcome with teeth
in the world’s drink
bringing the light to sink -- how far?

let them think of something
let them speak of something now

it’s in the deep
open the rights of sleep, oh
don’t fall a lie
open aloud

when they collide
in the fast fight
driven enough to slight our place

won’t be alight
in the last flight
groping the ocean side -- no way
Track Name: Leviathan Bird/Vanilla Toad
crashing my home in the boiling sea
mountain of water explodes in me

how does the water float?
on the ocean contained in the hull of a boat?

thunder
and rushing rain
like a deluge
pummels the stones and bricks and everything crumbling and cracking,

dissolving like sugar melting away

how
do you like my translucent skin, salamander king?
she turned me into a newt! but i didn’t get better

it’s
so cold here in the caves
but we don’t mind
because the sun boils our blood
boils our blood

it runs along the water in the cave
it’s flowing through the water in my veins

parasites down and one around
reporter destroyer, leviathan bird
Track Name: Funny Damage
A mark on the map
Apparently is a trap
Muscles and bones
Burning the ancient tomes

Well the captain’s in a play
We’ve trod upon the day

Funny, funny damage
Funny, funny damage
Oh

Ohhh, you say now
You won’t have long to sing now

Funny, funny damage
Funny, funny damage

Ohhh, you say now
You won’t have long to sing now
Track Name: Spirit Spout
a different time
there was a place
with what appeared
(to be) a human face

and we were nothing
no one was looking

there was a beast
a golden throat
with 20 flames
a flying boat

and it was nothing
he was not looking

i wrote it on my hand
i wrote it on my days
i took apart my watch
and threw it in the lake
froze my features in the sand looking in the tide pool
the ghost began to burn, withering my face
a map of the time i displaced
Track Name: List of Voids
Slip into the sea
With billions of mees
Standing outside of the gates
of fate

Cannon for the locks of time
Gotta leave it on my line
Cannon for the locks of time
Gotta leave it on my mind
oh ohh...
Drowning sun of summer fate
Winter waits outside the gate
Exploding down the corridor
Not the captain anymore
oh ohh!

Home home on the brain
I sink away
Kissing outside of the gates of fate

Cannon for the locks of time
Gotta leave it on my line
Cannon for the locks of time
Gotta leave it on my mind
oh ohh...
In the grave with something new
water goddess turn the screws
muscle muscle muscle bone
mice and meadows sinking home
oh ohhh...
Track Name: Forest With Bleeding Mansions
sleepers greed: the mansion bleeds
(and it hurts)
it’s all dried out, move along now
(and it hurts)

unwrite a song now
time surrounds you
sing a song to freeze your lifetime, lifetime

sing a song now
friends surround you
sing a song to free your lifetime, lifetime
Track Name: Walking Whale
fearsome eels are on the loose
can they tie themselves into a noose
can they hang me in the sea?
can a ghost be forced to breathe?

i will see you in a stream

walking whales emerge from mud
crawling out and shaking off the dust
cursing their eternity
solar flares will scrape their knees

when they swallowed up the sea
they swallowed plankton
whales are ambling onward
now our friends are going home
Track Name: Gored Twerp
Gored twerp
you get what you deserve
Poseidon in the sea is toiling
trident stir the foam to boiling
gored twerp

you wait long
love no one
glare at the sun
the day is done
Track Name: Sleepers
Sold out
Waiting
Old skin
Fading away from...
Blow my home
Blow my home away
Blow my home
Blow my home away

Grown cold
Wasting
Hear me
Didn’t know you’d be the one to
Blow my home
Blow my home away
Blow my home
Blow my home away

Blow my home
Blow my home away...
