Cobalt - Eater Of Birds lyrics


01. When Serpents Return

When serpents return
Sing nothing with a cut off tongue
And curse me
Into the moment at hand
With your false love
See the sky turn slower
Drink honey and drown
As stars reappear

I see fire
Somewhere ancient wheels are turning
Antlers incense burning
Listen to its humming
Speck of ocean, forgotten tide
The serpents are alive

The blood believes!

Cut the tongue, steal the life
Pull its roots from deep inside
Pull its roots from deep inside
Path of recluse deep inside

Paper finger burns waving
Children I never had are crying

The salt of undrinkable seas
Calls those whose insides bleed

Whales fuck and call for me
All eyes of stone are on the trees
Cut the tongue, feel the phone
When serpents returned I was alone

02. Ulcerism

Kill me - Because I'm sick of love...

Joyless master calls, in foul smelling winds
I delighted to feel blood, once again...
I sacrifice to him. Blood, blood, blood, blood

You, who has called me, Dark and cold
Under the sun together, we grew old
Who washed away and left me alone
The sun finds no beauty in the shadowless stone

I am called by hands, that shadows hide
Called by hands, that shadows hide

May my burning wings be incense to you
Cold eyed woman shrouded in October hue
To see you now I must close my eyes
Across one thousand windless years hear my cry

I stand and stare over a vast bay
Climbed a tree and said goodbye to the day
I watched her sail to the land beyond
And turned to stone when the sun was gone

04. Blood Eagle Sacrifice

I follow the shifting shadow of the master
He never walks any slower and never any faster
"Drape me in unliving flesh,
And smear shit into my eyes"

His breath smelled like rot
But I couldn't see his face...
I Believe, I follow the black flame

I see him whisper into clouds of ash
From them rise men only to fall again
Poi che se' si grande
E per lo 'nferno tuo nome si spande!

Blood Eagle Sacrifice

05. Witherer

Empty shores echo to me
Arms of quiet tide, unquestioning
Under an starlit sky open to accept
The ship I have clung to over dark waters
I fall crying into the wet beach
Hands clutching, Mouth filled with sand
Waves rolls over heel, back and down my nose
My body sinks with the tide

Unnatural breath against the enemy
Onethousand strikes of the stone hammer
Hands plowing dry through clay and soil
Bellies and fields are empty, they call for storms
There will be no fires on this beach
No spears shaped to hunt for a feast
The man in the sky pulls the tide up high
My body to the ocean, my tears to the tide

Every heartbeat pumps your cries into my veins
They turn to ash and coat my lungs

I dream of you walking away
Through October's cold rays
I see a beach the witherer can't see
Standing in the dark listening to waves with me

I open my eyes
Sorry to still be alive
His jaw is open wide
Memories I cant hide

07. Invincible Sun

Kiss the sky, and watch the world drown
Seething blue waves, glistening clear
Deep, Quiet, Drowning solitary

Humanity come to silence
Sounds of world be crushed
Invincible Sun, let it all end!
Machines of the ages- elements, atoms, prostitutes

Slept with the enemy
Felt its embrace
No turning back, much too late

08. Androids, Automatons And Nihilists

Foul man
Live the dream
Eat the chemical
Die inside the giant coma
Poison on my breath
Scour the machine whose feelings are dead
Living life fed

11. Eater Of Birds

When desert begins to shift, and sand takes its form
Trees turn with dust, breath like fire
Their skin held their soul
But cut 'em loose
And watch 'em fly
Way, way up until we're all blinded by the sun
And black is light
And sight is black
Lay 'em out and hold 'em down
No one's leaving 'til I'm euphoric!
I am one with the wilderness!
I stole the sky!
I am the eater of birds!
