Track Name: Obtuse
This is the blood
That we must take
This is the blood
That we must take

Cut off the head
To water the seeds
empty the vessel
and fill it again

cut off the head

She will rise, in the skin...

In the skin, she will rise…
She wants blood!
She wants blood!
our future lives!

Rise!
Track Name: Helm
I took my boat out to sea,
I was alone, I told no one where I’d gone
I took my small boat to the ocean,

Under the sun, above and so below,
Burning, blistering heartache

Diamonds danced upon the water
I reached out a pale hand.

Drowned and long dead,
It wrapped itself around me
It sank into depths
Down passed a hundred thousand albatross

Under my boat in the ocean,
I was alone,
I told no one where I'd gone.

Under the sun, above and so below,
Burning, blistering heartache

Albatross!
Track Name: Shadow
Before a dark veil,
Vined with fruit,
A sacred flora blooms….Blooms

(you ask to look upon my face
behold your death)

Sun burning lands,
Moon drowning cities,
Bedlam of animals singing.
A terrible face emerges

(you ask to look upon my face
behold your death)
Track Name: Gargantua
Alone drifting
Primeval Nebula
She unfolds
Bent of jaws and eyes

Dormant alphas
Waiting in nothingness
Hungry to pull her into collapse

Sacred disc
Forming life
Out of agony
Track Name: Cromagnon
I came here with my father
away but forward into abyss
to become the man I will be
seated as sun at dusk
in a cave as a boy

Loose leather flagged on my body
dark water fed me, but
No sign from beyond the thunderbird
nothing of my fate

My legs collapsed, my arms bent
but my throat opened
called out a deep longing
out of the cave
into the abyss

A great animal's breath
shifted the sky, the clouds blackened
northern wind like bears and lions
A blazing arrow set them all on fire

I am the Flame
I am the Son.
Track Name: Homo Ergaster
Ngae Duminita Men.
