Bucky Don't forget about the Forgotten Gods. Trippy, groovy, heavy. Kind of reminds me of the band Stoned Jesus. Fall of the Dagger builds and builds throughout the duration, creating a sense of euphoria by the closing track Seasons. Epic, progressive stoner metal. Favorite track: Seasons.

Into the forest I go fucking invisible the smell of carrion avenging perfection angel with seven eyes from the far side of the mountain where the trees don't grow branches the king of dread Over the hill along the river to the lake of the undine asleep in bloated skin angel with seven eyes from the far side of the mountain where the trees don't grow branches the king of dread

First Light 09:05
White ghosts swim across green grassy hills pock-marked with rocks and leaning stones whispering woman dances cold in mania a winter's kiss to chill our bones women of sullied ivory stare with wild eyes toward the east where the fog ends over the mountains that trespass in heaven into darkness, darkest peril, dark as the monster remind me of the days when I could sleep without a thousand demons watching over me gather your iron tools death-bringers to men and ghouls while broken-hearted ladies fill our cups with tears fermented at first light the rain comes and we're far from our homes We walked a thousand miles in misery to fall upon the mountain's mouth, painted red I stood unscathed, in madness and severed limbs black scales and tongue, forked like a serpent I lowered my pants and pissed on its evil eye and laughed out loud as it withered and died at first light the rain comes and we're coming home

Flying through celestial seas lonely traveler gliding free exiled from ancient gods in search of a home traveler of both time and space blue planet my resting place feeling like I never felt a long time ago Purple fog veils the stars in motion for the triangle gods burning low over plastic rivers and cyclopean alligators feral children run from the hunters making the rounds for 100,000 years He's alone under the canopy they point their fingers set form to piercing dagger to rend the heart of the dark creator diamond mirrors, sliced reflection carving fractals into pale blue skin release the sound white lights, exploding sun numbers, drip down the walls crash Fall of the dagger its coming for you fall of the dagger prophecy is true fall of the dagger its coming for you fall of the dagger for the chosen few He fell from the sky that night neon wrote his name in a burning fire across the plains they rose like shadows then with lying eyes beheld the blue-skinned man from the sky He pointed to the bear made of stars held out an open hand they understood they gave him communion and took him in offered him burning plants and it was good Visions of gods and men dancing hand in hand cold sweat, clenched teeth thunderbirds overhead Time on my hands blood on the table look at yourself I'm more than able to offer this gift of lightning and coils from the expanse to men of the buffalo pick in my hand dagger's on overdrive release the sound of evil asleep in heaven

Looking for holy fountains searching through ghosts and fire follow down rotten pathways through mystic jungles lost mother of the shadow lands dances slowly provider, caregiver to ghosts and fire peoples of dark religion the eight-armed spider woman stands tall above the mountains supplicants stare toward heaven mother of the shadow lands dances slowly provider, caregiver to ghosts and fire

I walk alone in this thoughtless, dying world don't try and find me, I'm already gone searching for poison, ammo and gasoline don't try and find me, I'm already gone Get out of my way get out of my life I took my power back you shattered my dreams you stole my life the battle is done scotch-whiskey man I'm ready to rock They killed my wife murdered my son the damage is done one bullet, one gun, one plan just a shell of a man the Nightrider, the Toecutter, Cundalini is on the run nowhere to go Get out of my way get out of my life I took my power back scotch-whiskey man I'm ready to rock you shattered my dreams you stole my life the battle is done bourbon-whiskey man I'm ready to rock Through all this darkness, I know I'm not alone don't try and find me I'm already gone I found the poison that numbs the pain inside of me done with the games, I'm already gone Get out of my way get out of my life I took my power back scotch-whiskey man I'm ready to rock you shattered my dreams you stole my life the battle is done bourbon-whiskey man I'm ready to rock They killed my wife murdered my son the damage is done one bullet, one gun, one plan just a shell of a man the Nightrider, the Toecutter, Cundalini is on the run nowhere to go

Seasons 04:52
The great tree crawls out of the earth in a deluge of broken fingers thicker than walrus skin separate the divine seasons always change heavens fall like rain don't forget the serpent's name don't forget that I'm the same Grey fog like a glaucoma eye lesions open in the sky long path of boots on snow crushing on fallen angels seasons always change heavens fall like rain don't forget the serpent's name don't forget that I'm the same They stole the fire from the sun cast the stones into the ether hung the skin upon your bones then closed the door
