Track Name: Agony bells
YOU:
LET YOUR AGONY BELLS RING

SO WE WILL KNOW
WHEN YOU'RE SUFFERING
AND LEAVE YOU FOR DEAD
IN YOUR SICKLY BED
RING YOUR AGONY BELLS
SOMEONE ALWAYS HEARS THEM
THEY LOSE THEIR MINDS TO THINK
THEY MIGHT, ONE DAY, HAVE TO RING THEM

YOU:
LET YOUR AGONY BELLS RING

LET THEM RING,
LET THEM PEAL

RING YOUR AGONY BELLS
YOU NEVER KNOW WHO WILL ANSWER
MAYBE DEATH WILL HEAR THEM
AND SHUFFLE A LITTLE FASTER
RING YOUR AGONY BELLS
WHILE CLOSE TO LIFE
YOU CAN FIND NEW BELLS TO RING
ON THE OTHER SIDE

YOU:
LET YOUR AGONY BELLS RING
Track Name: It lives
IT LIVES
IT LIVES IN YOUR BRAIN STEM
IT LIVES UNDER YOUR SKIN
IT’S SOME MICROSCOPIC ORGANISM
IT’S SOME FEAR THAT DEEPENS
IT LIVES

IT LIVES
IT LIVES IN A POINTING FINGER
IT LIVES THINKING IT’S WAY BETTER OFF
IT’S A MIRROR YOU REFUSE TO LOOK AT
IT LIVES IN IGNORANCE
IT LIVES

IT LIVES IN A ZOMBIE BIRDHOUSE
IT WIGGLES SO VERY MUCH
WITH A VAMPIRE’S STRENGTH IT CRAWLS THRU
SIX FEET OF EARTH

PARASITIC?
OR SYMBIOTIC?
CAN YOU FIND IT WHILE IT LIVES INSIDE?
PARASITIC?
OR SYMBIOTIC?
CAN YOU FIND OUT BEFORE YOU DIE?

IT LIVES
Track Name: Hackles rise
PRAY TO STEP OUT THE DOOR
AND FALL INTO OBLIVION
OR FOR LIGHTNING TO RENDER ME ASH
WHEN I WAKE IN THIS CHARNEL HOUSE
AND RECALL THE DEATH THAT IS MY LIFE…

MY HACKLES RISE

MY HACKLES RISE WHEN I FEEL STUCK INSIDE
MY HACKLES RISE WHEN I SEE THE DISTANCE IN YOUR EYES
MY HACKLES RISE WHEN I REMEMBER ALL THE LIES
MY HACKLES RISE AS I GLARE AT THE FIRING LINE

MY HACKLES RISE

PRAY TO STEP OUT THE DOOR
AND FALL INTO OBLIVION
OR FOR LIGHTNING TO RENDER ME ASH
WHEN I WAKE IN THIS CHARNEL HOUSE
AND RECALL THE DEATH THAT IS MY LIFE…

MY HACKLES RISE
WHAT WILL BRING THEM DOWN?
TO HEAR THE COSMIC LOWING SONG
OR BE TAKEN OUT.
TO NO LONGER HAVE A MIND
AS A FLEA ON THE HIDE OF TIME
TO BE NOTHING BUT INSIDE
NO OBLIGATION TO SURVIVE

MY HACKLES RISE
Track Name: Sew up a bag of darkness
SEW UP A BAG OF DARKNESS
FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN
SEW UP A BAG OF DARKNESS
THERE IS ONLY LIGHT ON LAND

FATHER
KING SEA SERPENT
WILL YOU HEAR MY CALL?
BRING ME THE NIGHT
YOU FIND IT UNDERWATER
END THE DAYS FOR ME
OR I WILL DIE

TO THE NIGHTLESS EARTH I WANDERED
SEEKING NEW LIFE – FINDING LOVE AND
A WORLD THAT NEVER CLOSES ITS EYES
BRING THEM BLACK
BRING THEM NIGHT
BRING THEM FEAR
SEW IT UP IN A BAG AND
LEAVE IT ON THE SHORE FOR THEM TO FIND

SEW UP A BAG OF DARKNESS
FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN
SEW UP A BAG OF DARKNESS
THERE IS ONLY LIGHT ON LAND

WHEN THEY FIND THE BAG
THEY WILL HEAR THE NIGHT SOUNDS
AND BE FRIGHTENED
THEY’LL OPEN IT WITH WONDER
THE NIGHT WILL ESCAPE
I WILL BE THANKFUL AND HONOR YOU WITH
THE MOON SHELL IN THE SKY
YOUR WATCHFUL EYE

BRING ME THE NIGHT
CAN YOU HEAR ME AS I DIE?

SEW UP A BAG OF DARKNESS FOR ME
ALL WE HAVE IS LIGHT
Track Name: Vortices
DUE TO MOTHER'S IMPATIENCE
I ONLY EVER FORMED A HEAD
I FEAST ON SNAKES AND
FROM THE WORLD I FLED
YOU SUMMONED ME TO SEE MY FULL FORM
I SANK INTO NOTHING
WHEN I CAUGHT YOU DRAWING ME
WITH YOUR FOOT

IT'S ALL WE EVER NEVER KNOW

THE BRAVEST
MOST TRUTHFUL
COVERED IN SUPERIOR MARKS
STARE INTO MY EYES AS I FEAST
ON THE GODS OF RAIN
IN THE VORTICES
YOU WILL REMEMBER ME
IN THE RE-ALIGNMENT
OF THE SPECIES

IT'S ALL WE EVER NEVER KNOW
Track Name: The cut hunter
THERE IS AN ISLAND IN A RIVER
IN THE JUNGLE
WHERE THE MONKEYS ATE EACH OTHER
THE BLOOD GOT STRANGE
PATHOGENS STRONGER
A HUNTER CAME
AND WAS INFECTED IN THE SLAUGHTER
WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME
HE TOOK IT WITH HIM TO TOWN
THIS CUT HUNTER PASSED IT AROUND

THE CUT HUNTER
PASSED IT AROUND

IT’S HARD TO GET BY
THE PLACES YOU GO
TO GET THERE
TO SURVIVE
YOU NEVER COME BACK THE SAME
WORLDS CHANGE
PATHOGENS FIND A WAY
THEY INSIST
THE APOCALYPSE
TAKES WHATEVER CHANCE IT GETS

THE CUT HUNTER
PASSED IT AROUND
TO THE WOMEN AT THE DOCKS
AND THE SAILORS BROUGHT IT TO THE WORLD

THE APOCALYPSE
TAKES WHATEVER CHANCE IT GETS
TO EXIST
OUTSIDE OF FICTION
FREE FROM MYTH
THE APOCOLYPSE
TAKES WHATEVER CHANCE IT GETS
Track Name: Move through worlds
THE STONES SPEAK
AND THE LAKE
AND THE HURRICANE
MOVE THROUGH WORLDS
WITH THE POWER OF THE WINGED SNAKE

SCREAM AND SCARE AND HYPNOTIZE
CHANT THE NAME
DON’T LOOK INTO ITS EYES
FEED IT FRUIT
SCRAPE SHAVINGS FROM ITS SIDE
USE THEM FOR PROTECTION IN LIFE

WITH HEAVY FOOTFALLS I WALK THE MIDDLE WORLD
FLOAT ALONG THE CURRENT IN THE LOWER WORLD
FLY AROUND THE UPPER WORLD AND SHAKE THE HEAVENS

THE CRANE SHRIEKS
THE DEER
AND THE FISH WAIT
TO OBSERVE THE TRANSIT OF THE WINGED SNAKE

THE BLINDED MAN RUNS INTO THE WATER
TO DIE OR TRANSFORM
INTO ANOTHER
INTO A LOWER CREATURE
DESTROY THE WORLD
DEMAND FROM THE WORLD
DESTROY YOURSELF
DESTROY YOURSELF

THE HOLY TRINITY
LOWER MIDDLE AND UPPER WORLD EFFIGY
A CALENDAR FOR MAN IN THE MIDDLE WORLD STANDS
A BEACON TO HEAVEN
A SERPENT
