Track Name: Horizon Wide (2013)
Saw an ibex
on the side of the road
Writhing in pain
eyes half closed

Bleed to death
hill so far away
bone and flesh
eyes and skin
bleed to death
landscape bent
horizon wide, the end of the day

pock-marked skin
blistered from the sun
covered in emeses
despondent cries
We continued to walk
on this road so long
and I'm not quite sure
how far we've gone

orange and yellow commune
yellow and red walk the dunes
under a gold-bloom white moon
Track Name: Gatherer
instrumental
Track Name: Mouths of Giants
this feral life
nomadic existence
we're headed to
our early extinction

the Books of Moses
are clenched steadfast
dark feline bones
and iron ore

crawling into
the mouths of giants
the Grand Grimoire
Indian Sign


You held the key
You fucked up
He spoke through me
You fucked up

High John the "conker"
growing outside
whiskey for some graveyard dust
to nullify
Track Name: Davidian (2013)
A plague upon you
sinner with open hand
outside forces condemn us
kept inside a plywood cage

run
fast
pig

bleach
clean
filth

our fading light resists
beheaded prophet

In the owl-light
they come
faceless creatures
filled with poison
sent to destroy us
to crush us
tiny ants

"this could be the day that we die"

The day they came to take us
our minds were clear
David told us this time would come
closed our eyes, and did not fear
Track Name: Obsolete Vernacular
Condemned
Chlorine has made me callous
Imponderous
The sensation has left me rootless
Asphyxiate
My season to disappear

Oh, no
Outlying haunt
Devastation
You cannot recognize

Oh, no
