lyrics

1. Amongst the four pigs the wolf sat
Basking in whore's glory
Writing the scribe in blood

Skeletons of wax and leather
Drip denim onto soft grey foam
"Resplendence in powder,
Sentient bees lacking vibrance."

Dissolved in ash,
a thought lingers on thermals
Then scenes into animal meat are closed.

The green fox in crazed furs stands back
Startled by the vanity of the vines
and derives pleasure from the soft waves the shift
Red and white

On occasion, the movement of the people forms itself into branches and roots.
Adversity at it's finest

2. I was birthed warm on the beach

Bathed in light, 
swathed in mud and rust

the men in the distance were 
dragging the oars through the lush water

Red threads trailing at their waists

Metal arms connecting their torsos

Terror.


Mother came under the cover of clouds

As Father rushed in to protect me

Cool breezes over my head and over my mouth

Silence.

Cloudy milk poured from my eyes

As music came to rest.

She found herself in a city where the land threatened to swallow her whole

When they found her she claimed Neptune as her home
