lyrics

Here I stand
A creature of the night
A small child
A little boy
The wind of morn
Comes close to light
And this involved sight
On the inner side
The evil thing
Will contain me
It’s trickery
Into the realm of me

Need not I be scared
And swallow you right down

Okay, I will come to you
You son of a bitch
You goddamn fool
Okay, yes, I’ll bow to you
You “world of foggy distance” mule
I tried to keep my hands off you
And get through life without needing you
So doctor please just give me more
And help me to keep shut this door

To be a mask
To be a bee
To be a fortress
Of decency
Power through
Your odd machine
And keep my feet
Off electricity

Put my feelers out
A signal to myself

Chorus

Your side effects cripple me
And bring my armor down
You do the opposite of what you’re supposed to do

Chorus

All of these qualities are crafted over melodic soundscapes that are sometimes dark, sometimes quirky, and sometimes raw and beautiful. ... more
