about

Inspired by "De animalibus insectis" by Ulyssis Aldrovandi and the poem "Ozymandias" by Percy Shelley

lyrics

time shall yield

drinking the fog
on the Skeleton Coast
relentlessly spawning

my mouth is the mouth of a thousand young
my seed is the salt on the future's tongue
our graves are the cradles of the gods unsung
our age is the age of gotterdammerung

drowning you invoke
ghosts of smoke

Eadem manet natura sorte mutata
Et carnem caro factum est

time shall steal

cross crimson grist
by first light's mist
we toil

this desert is the dust
of weathered stones and rust

climbing a strange spire
going forward doesn't
take one higher

we'll lay our eggs in your tomb
and what's left we'll consume

the horizon's dark shawl
the air's leaden mass
the eager, anticipatory dryness

the storm sails in
on a black iron hull
glistening grains in its wake

fording the flood
on the backs of our brood
molting and changing

you will be forgotten
we were never known

(Solo: KS)

(Solo: JS)

respice humilitatem nostram
