    1. Blood & Thunder

    | back to the top

    I think that someone is trying to kill me
    Infecting my blood and destroying my mind
    No man of the flesh could ever stop me
    The fight for this fish is a fight to the death

    White whale - holy grail

    What remorseless emperor commands me
    I no longer govern my soul
    I am completely immersed in darkness
    As I turn my body away from the sun

    White whale - holy grail

    Split your lungs with blood and thunder
    When you see the white whale
    Break your backs and crack your oars men
    If you wish to prevail

    This ivory leg is what propels me
    Harpoons thrust in the sky
    Aim directly for his crooked brow
    And look him straight in the eye

    White whale - holy grail

    2. I Am Ahab

    | back to the top

    There's magic in the water that attracts all men
    Across hills and down streams
    The turning of the tide
    Outlook
    Future bright
    Selfish
    Beauty shines
    Light cloud rain drive on
    13 years to this day red planet aligned
    Into sight 60,000 years of light
    Fascination with a mountain put to sea
    Built to slay and conquer
    All with teeth of beasts

    3. Seabeast

    | back to the top

    If I stand around and watch them drown in a pool of gray
    When we dive in I can surely say there's feud with force
    Am I in your way? Please knock me down. Can I help you in?
    When I'm not around let us all be found in certain ways

    Dear Mr. Queequeg you have been informed your life's been saved
    You are not a black-hearted vicious mess so it has been claimed
    If this is the beast pulling us towards the east with mighty waves
    Let us look inside and pull out all your pride you know it's up to us

    Holding pasts in ash black earth
    Bound by roots
    Roots into sand
    Grow towards the giver

    There's an open wound placed upon my heart in anger's rage
    If we open up a spirit, a spirit that can bleed
    Ahab the leading lad we can trust his obsession carries them
    Meet us at the temple healing all the crippled

    Don't forget the maimed
    Lower soul sent with gifts offering
    Teeth of hope travel with
    Child laid next to mother

    4. Iceland

    | back to the top

    Given decision to live
    Not taken
    The flight towards the light
    I'll stay in the lava for life
    Erupting when gods take us all
    Changing the peaks makes us pour
    From the mountain and burn
    The path of our time
    Hail people of Iceland
    Journey of a land anew
    Ram as our liaison
    Vision inspire and move
    Awe holy island
    Breed the lagoon to run free
    Raw beauty is ruthless within the golden ring
    Precision of Grungir
    Spear of the Norse God Odin
    Praise our Pagan Father
    Founder of the Althing

    Given decision to live
    Not taken
    The flight towards the light
    I'll stay in the lava for life
    Erupting when gods take us all
    Changing the peaks makes us pour
    From the mountain and burn
    The path of our time
    Ruler of sky's thunder
    The honourable warrior
    All divination
    Beward the Hammer of Thor
    Lava goddess
    Ice and fire
    Settling down
    Ocean Geysir
    Gullfoss
    Heimaey '73

    5. Iron Tusk

    | back to the top

    Straight line
    Feel it burst liver and lung
    Long and strong
    'Til she spills her black blood
    Center down
    Vast the head body and tail
    Shatter life
    Physeter catodon
    Culture vulture
    Elephant graveyard
    Culture vulture
    Engage monster
    Wreaking vengeance
    Assault with all martial rage
    Sail on

    6. Megalodon

    | back to the top

    Myth or legend
    Nymph tale washed ashore
    Near the kraken sleepeth stirs coral and bone
    Infinite city
    No sexy sneer
    Hideous creation
    Human and animal
    Banter songs of rudeness to be adhered
    Not on rocks that glisten
    Harps to listen
    Comb hair
    Tear right to pieces
    Left to recess a watery grave
    Sensing the blood of prey
    Swimming in fear for life
    Rolling over
    Falling into jaws
    Teeth that chatter
    It distracts them all
    The Fiji mermaid
    She will let it know
    Time is coming to feed and knaw

    7. Naked Burn

    | back to the top

    Angels dancing with a mortal a sin
    A giant born within a woman's womb
    Nephilim walking through the forest breaking limbs
    As we bow and give respect to the gods

    Save yourself
    Don't wait on me
    My feet are sewn
    Endless bottom

    The church is burning from the inside out
    Altars falling into ashes again
    An eagle fly upon horizons with sight
    Focusing on all our family and friends

    Apologize
    Can we rise above it
    Climb the line
    It's a good endeavor
    The ships arrived
    Let's sail into the weather
    Our crying eyes

    Save yourself
    Don't wait on me
    My feet are sewn
    Endless bottom

    8. Aqua Dementia

    | back to the top

    An invitation to clairvoyance
    It's hard to stand around and watch while they ignore us
    She is dumped on
    Used as an ashtray
    At the expense of an organized association
    I see the stones in the path we laid
    It's a question of tomorrow
    We like to breathe the ancient wind that we have followed
    A perfect fire to burn the land
    Before they knew it
    The sun had falledn
    Boiling the water where the hydra's crawling
    The righteous go in blazing fury
    And we cleanse the earth to bring it down
    Bring it down
    And God will watch it burn
    Releasing souls
    Within the wrath we wait
    To be dirt again
    There is a flame I lit
    I upon high

    9. Hearts Alive

    | back to the top

    Taken down with hearts alive
    Our hearts alive

    Lurking dark underground
    Descend to the bottom
    Swim below eternally
    Into the deep blue sea

    Time and space
    All alone
    It can be a lonely place
    There it goes
    Opening up
    I can't stand
    I can't breathe
    Rolled fin out
    Oil stripped
    Hold is filled

    Ocean coil
    Water boils
    He swims to the surface
    Flame from mouth
    Smoke he breathes
    Enter the caverns of the deep

    Time and space
    All alone
    It can be a lonely place
    There it goes
    Opening up
    I can't stand
    I can't breathe
    Terrified
    Ghastly cry
    Spiraled lives
    Taken down
    Taken down

    The iron side
    Bucket of lead
    Battle is she
    Not for defeat
    The iron side
    Bucket of lead
    Battle is she
