Track Name: Corner Garden
Spider Blossoms
growing in a corner garden
A sky of cracked walls
60 watt stars shattered

See how they flourish
in forgotten corners
New life springs
even in a land so still

And in this sea of dust
memories of us still remain
Spider blossoms
growing in a corner garden

See how they flourish
in forgotten corners
New life springs
even in a land so still.
Track Name: Bathylite
Deep colossus, Bathylite
A question, then, why do you fear me?
On your broken back
Wounded, Downtrodden
And left for dead

When the water-wolves smelled your blood
Did they give you rest, or hunt you down?
When the whaler left you to drown
Was there anyone around?

Out of my grasp, far from control

To tame the beast’s soul, I left you behind

Willful, arrogant, learn to fly!

One day I will hold a trophy so bold,
My story will be told for years to come!

In the wasteland known as morbid sea calls out fo(u)r
lost souls avoid pestilence seeking solace.
It’s as dark as can be in the depths of the deep,
In the belly of the beast at the bottom of the sea.
