Track Name: The Albatross and the Mouse
Ambling, wandering
Intrigue and wonder
How we have lost ourselves
the domestic soul is a damned spirit
A Purgatory of machines and lifelessness
No wind can penetrate four walls
Thus, the voice of God goes unheard
The moon and sun dance
But homesick eyes do not perceive them
To be lost in the wilderness; a fear or a pleasure?
the mouse in his dwelling will never know the sky
but the albatross, a vagabond, knows only freedom
Track Name: The Quiet Song of the Bluebell
The bluebell small sings a song of beauty
Rafflesia arnoldii, a reeking colossus
A scaly serpent strikes fear into the weak minded
But the man of knowledge is in awe
The fool sees no value in the vast wilderness
the wise man knows no greater treasure
To scoff at the endless ocean
And yawn at endless blue
Surely, shall bring upon doom
Life is only lovely
Because of the promise of death
The night holds mysteries
Only because the day reveals
Beauty is a creature who appears before each man with a face unique
Track Name: Sky of the Abyss
diving
deeper
flying through the ethereal
ivory permeates the sapphire
as i look back to see its diamond veins
the blood coursing through the sea
clawing
further
lazuli turns to onyx
into the ribs of the abyss
ctenophoria
cnideria
lanterns guiding my journey
I traverse the stars
hidden from the surface
crawling
deeper
I find my home
caress the bottom
the sky is as night
i slumber beneath the stars
below the blue mountains
solace
hush
I slumber
Track Name: The Shepherd's Principle
The shepherd that cries loudest against the wolf
Wil howl deepest at the next full moon
Oh, how loud were my cries
and how deep was my mourning
I cursed myself for changing
The mirror was my oppressor
I shepherd I was
A wolf I became
Fur and fangs became me
Loathing myself, reaching for silver bullets
I cried to the heavens in agony
But soon, my tears began to dry
my sorrow turned to peace
I was not cursed
nor was I ever meant to care for sheep
This was not death
But my birth postponed
What I deemed horrid
Was in fact beauty
A blessing perceived as a curse
I howl with pride
I never was
Today, I am
Track Name: Crystal Earth
white
black
blue
grey
lilies fall from the sky
charcoal sketching across the horizon
time is still
