Track Name: Twin Sisters
Twin sisters born on a tower
before a gathering of masks and whispers
snow falls all around them
washing the blood from wrinkled skin
let no man put asunder
that which ice has joined together
All of our lives we've been waiting for this time
up the mountain, to the tower we must climb
into the sky through the window high above
all of our lives we've been waiting here to die
The little ones have never spoken
hair braided into one another's
returning always to the mountain
for the gathering of masks and whispers
under the frost the old ones shiver
bone and cloth against the winter
All of our lives we've been waiting for this time
up the mountain, to the tower we must climb
into the sky through the window high above
all of our lives we've been waiting here to die
Track Name: Bad Magick
Heavy thoughts blur these wandering eyes
I've got two pots going and they're bubbling high
pantacle and her blood so red
dirty pillow and an empty bed
For all of my mistakes
I give my soul to take
but where did she go
where did you go
where did you go
where did you go
no one knows
White hair wraps around my mind
brings me back to the last time I saw her
lying there on the altar bare
bad magick, bad magick
For all of my mistakes
I give my soul to take
but where did she go
where did you go
where did you go
where did you go
Takes more than a swarm of bees
to take the sugar from the skin and
the life left in her tree
pick out the stems and seeds
pour the vial in her mouth and she returns to me
Track Name: Hole in the Moon
Drop ropes down into airless darkness
descend slowly through the layers of bones
into darkness, blackest chasm
will we find god's chair or the devil's throne
Into madness
darkest darkness
foggy visor
hole in the moon
Strangest shapes moving in the shadows
ancient beasts indescribable
stars above fading slowly
getting colder the farther we go
Into madness
darkest darkness
foggy visor
hole in the moon
A sound
a sonic eruption
vomits us out beyond the surface
eardrums split
blood in my helmet
tumbling away
my last visions of earth
Track Name: Coyote
All out of water
all out of gasoline
me and my coyote
holding the desert down
living like a cockroach
shadow of the atom bomb
me and my coyote
waiting for the dawn
Chewing on garbage
pissing neon green
me and my coyote
the best you've ever seen
lords of the graveyard
but no ones left to pray
me and my coyote
kings in the end of days
Track Name: Kaleidoscope Woman
King in his castle
slowly growing old
sun beams through cobwebs
casts his crown in gold
asleep in an old chair
leaning toward the ground
dreams all are nightmares
but no one is around
I can see her with my mind's eye
giant horns before a bloody red sky
like an ocean burning fire
breathing water
gasping for air
Tried to tell you
my dream's a prison cell
can't you hear me
crying out for help
Radiant one
born in a black hole
rainbow and crystal
draped in kaleidoscope
queen of my nightmare
black magic down below
hell from her hands
black magic down below
Kaleidoscope woman
turn your wicked eye from me
kaleidoscope woman
get your fucking hands off me
Don't send me a savior
lost in a dream that I couldn't get out of
charted the stars, movement of planets
settled my debts and constructed a mindship
my body's on fire
haunted by demons of doubt and desire
shatter the earth
pierce through the vector
into the darkness
blindly to get to her
She blocks out the sun
knife in the sky descends on her third eye
tearing apart the yolk and the membrane
screams in the darkness
I open my eyes
Track Name: Sleeping Panther
Sleeping panther with his evil eye
drinking beers all goddamn day
no one knows if he's dead or alive
he don't care much either way
No one knows where his mind's gone
In a tree above a dying world
high as hell above the earth
midday sun brings filthy astronaut garbage
night time brings the dark star's curse
Track Name: Return My Bones
In a pool of water
he rests his head
tadpoles and leaches
pick at his skin
Who the hell do you think you are
turning wine into water
who the hell do you think you are
fish and frog upon your altar
Adorned in seaweed
whirlpools in his eyes
tentacle hands
cephalopod man
Who the hell do you think you are
turning wine into water
who the hell do you think you are
fish and frog upon your altar
Come with me into the ocean
come with me into the breaking sea
come to me you salt of the earth
come let the water fill your lungs
Breathing in sorrow
longing for home
under the water
return my bones
