Track Name: Skins of the Fathers
Across desert sands, a gaudy procession
Seen from afar, a vague impression
Joyous celebrants in gorgeous array
March and gambol, totter and sway

Strange, twisted music, crystalline sound
Misshapen feet trample the ground
Ancient empaths, recombinant freaks
In dreaming headspires, in scales & beaks

-CHORUS-
Humankind’s true Fathers
Come to reclaim their Son
Genetic deconstructions
Primeval mission undone

Small town, small minds, changeling boy
Chrysalis Prince – kin to the convoy
Time now to blossom, to claim and be claimed
Wearing Skins of the Fathers – no longer ashamed

-CHORUS2-

Freakish family reunion
Bright prodigal Son
Instant deevolution
Double helix undone

-OUTRO-

Rising in a soup of shapes, the new chimerical King
Sands reclaim the dying town as Demon voices sing…
Track Name: The Crows
THE CROWS
Shadowblack carrion feeders
Flocking to the Call
Eyes on leaders, swift approach
From the gravid sky they fall
Razorbeak hammerheads
Tearing fallen flesh
Communal feast, fresh-dead beast
Circling kin descend

CHORUS

Black cloud over the forest
Growing, flowing from afar
Flying swollen back to their nests
No illusions – who they are
No illusions
Who they are

Gravelthroat Death-eaters
On oil-black wings
Ever-hungry, vigilant
Swarming, soaring skykings
Ever watching, never ceasing
Probing world below
Secret clan, arcane plan
We can never know
Track Name: Sandia Man
SANDIA MAN

Ancient forest is my home
Mountain canyons I do roam
Longtooth tigers stalk my prey
Competition on each day

Sandia Man – the first to come
Sandia Cave – my mountain home
Sandia Man – the first to come
I am the King of the Mountain…

Stone-tipped arrows, pointed spears
Feed my belly, soothe my fears
Fire at cave door wards away
Keeps me warm, turns night to day

Sandia Man – the first to come
Sandia Cave – my mountain home
Sandia Man – the first to come
I am the King of the Mountain…

Hew my tools from solid stone
Work in wood, in hide and bone
Life’s a struggle to survive
Mate & children lost their lives

Sandia Man – the first to come
Sandia Cave – my mountain home
Sandia Man – my family gone
I am the King of the Mountain…

My clan came from frozen place
Most are buried, trace erased
All are gone now, so I wait
Mountain winter seals my fate

Sandia Man – the first to come
Sandia Cave – my lonely home
Sandia man – I die alone

I was the King of the Mountain
I was the King of the Mountain
Once I was King of the Mountain
But now I’m gone…
