Magpie 02:54
I’m a man of means, a dreamer in the straw All alone in the calm before the fall There’s a heartbeat now coming in between the words It hammers down as the sky swallows the birds If you notice her she’ll leave Constellations crawl three by three by three This tiny skull a fontanelle received In the present tense as the language overflows It falls apart, a fortune for the crows If you notice her she’ll leave But don’t you want to see Between the summers teeth, there’s a comet in her eye I’m pinned beneath the beast, between the summer’s teeth There’s a goddess on my side and she won’t be denied She won’t be denied (c) Flights of Helios 2018

Beast 05:24
Beast, all the same beast All the same blood and bone The same alone, the same alone This fear of being, all the same beast See him dressed in flame, full burnished chrome Saying “As above, so below" This fear of beast Beast, all the same beast The gums and the teeth, this furnace beneath It's the same beliefs, it's those old beliefs And this fear of beast Hold a mirror to your heart Hold a mirror to your heart all the same, all the same beast all the same, all the same beast the gums and the teeth, the furnace beneath head shoulders and knees, head shoulders and knees the same old beliefs, the same old beliefs head shoulders and knees, head shoulders and knees Hold a mirror to your heart Hold a mirror to your heart (c) Flights of Helios 2018
