Late Entry

Stones in Hand

Twilight blacks the skies

The evening rains subside

The birdsongs slowly quiet

As dangers stand outside


The rustling leaves alight

Those dangerous packs at night

The homonids nearby

Have come to pick a fight


Hordes of vile infectious swine

Breach upon our lands

As defenders armed with stones in hand

Neanderthals we stand

Three Lycanthrope Moon

Brothers, the time has come

The light is shining bright

Let our hunt begin anew

On this our destined night

 

Familiars of celestial light

Changed by tidal flame

The mystery once more reveals  

The beasts we are again

 

Pack ambition

Sing the lunar praise

Count off

One Two Three

Winter's Sun

We've been waiting for so long

In stasis, just holding on to hope that

Winter's sun will come

 

To set in motion

The changing of the days

To rise above the barren earth

We'll see the sun again

Crystalline

Excavating these comet-trail ice-water minefields

Carry life-giving prize-winning crime deals

By the carrier load

Sweet crystalline dreams

 

Cut and run when deputized come to wrest the ice floes

From desperate sky-folk

Just looking for a way mine hope turn high-float rock to liquid hope

 

Legends tell of a time before our skies closed

Putting death and fire in our hydro

When the rain turned violent we ran past the sky to find Crystalline

 

Now floating in the void we hide from the agency that laid claim to the trails and space we see.

We're renegades at sea, just looking for a bounty and the Crystalline

Bred For War

Harsh light chrysalis

Injector pods prepped for toxic genesis

Breeding future minutemen

Somatic combatants bred for cosmic sentience

 

Pop, fizz, sizzle, drip

Amniotic fluid boils against the refrigerants

Lights sway, flicker, dim

As eyes without minds watch in restless innocence

 

Bred for war

 

Hive mind synchronous

Eyes at one time flicker, dilate, fill with consciousness

Light beams fill the sense

Alarms and echoes of tearing metal of battleship

 

Hull breach imminent

Prep for battle send in newborn armaments  

Download intelligence

To the symbionts born newly freed from wombs of synthesis

 

Bred for war

 

Evening Haze

Swarms of light invade

Light up the end of day

Flit and float away

Swim through the evening haze

 

Summer evening, cool air from the breeze and

The sky seems to pulse and beat with the light from these creatures

Grab a jar to capture and keep them

Bioluminescence in the evening

Their incandescence seems freeing

To the mind enraptured with seeking

Magic in a world where grandeur seems fleeting

 

When wind stops blowing and the

And the stars stop glowing so bright

With our childhood growing on up

Get lost inside the evening haze

The flow descending

Cascades
Collected water and spillways
Through mists and harrowing pathways
The water collects the flow comes to rest

Paradise
Where bridges span to connect the sides
Where couples come to repair divides
The water affects the sun goes to rest

Set this world ablaze
We are here to watch
Figures hide in flames
We are here to burn this down

The World Begins (with ending)

(remix/variation of Out Of Control by Starla)

The way you play has gotten old
And I am strong
Alone

The way you feel out of control
And I have changed
Alone

Eyes shut and worlds are turning
In stillness momentum builds
These dreams that others give me
Give life to consciousness

Wake up, the world begins
We’ll find another way

Chariot of the Gods

Calling
To any who hear
Calling
For those who know

The thunder roars
The skies ablaze
The engines hum
At end of days

Come from beyond the grave
Or from beyond starlight
In chariots of stars ablaze
Or orbiting satellites

All praise to thee, Oh Starla

All praise to thee, Oh, Starla.
The bringer of the light
Without your lamp to guide our way
We stumble in the night

When late our entries fall
Your wrath we dread
But never failed have you to open
Submissions again

All faith in thee, dear Starla
That one day you'll return
To bring the compo back to life
Or elsewhere we must turn

Your presence missing still
Our hearts in pain
Til partybot has sung his song
Pray come again

Breathing in night
Feeding on the life
Let the warmth control me
Let the virus take control
Breathing in night

The rogue
The violent
The one inside the skin
The form
The virus
Feasts from within

Forms

We were echoes in the void
Til we found a way to become more than noise

Time ticked slowly on and on
Til our echoes merged, taking shape moving on

No more echoes in the air
We've come to find a way to gain our forms again
No more echoes in the air
NOW
Carry us home carry us home

Took Our Skies Away

They didn't come in peace. They stole our skies. What do we do now?

Lyrics:
Gentle breezes glide across the water
At the end of the day
What looks peaceful hides the true disaster
Boiling in the pale
They took our skies away
And fear is all we have that remains
Gentle breezes, quiet waters
They took our skies away

Quiet waters under skies of fire
Time is drawing night
Air turns acrid as waters boil to nothing
Before eternal night
They took our skies away
Neither we nor fear remain
Gentle breezes, quiet waters
They took our skies away

Illegal Aliens

Harvest is pretty hard when it's just our family. Luckily, the illegals are always willing to lend a hand for some quick cash. If only their party-machine UFO's weren't such a nuisance...

Hey Kid

Hey son, where are you going
With fuel on empty, end over end
Hey kid, why are you slowing
Don't you know gravity takes hold and orbits descend

Through clouds below and stars above
Our path it wanders lower still
Our path it wanders lower still

Hey son, forgive me for asking
So many questions as you fight our fate
Hey kid, I know you're gasping
For air as our ship falls free of space

Air, fire, horizons lost
Air, fire, try harder still

Through clouds below and stars above
Through engine failure and shifted blame
Through clouds below and stars above
Our path it wanders lower still
Our path it wanders lower still

Hey kid, thanks for trying.

Bring Back What's Mine

posted in OHC281 on Feb 27, 2014

You steal what's mine
All my treasures
I once had three parakeets
But now I have no bird friends

I'm tired of betrayal
I'm a poor soul in need
I once had three limosines
But now my garage is empty

Give back what you stole or face me down (I will face you down)
Fight me like a man I'll take you down (I will take you down)

Bring back what's mine I beg you

My food tastes bland
Since you stole my tongue
I once had three eyes of green
But now I can't even see

And my arms don't work
Without my shoulder blades
I once had three trampolines
But now I stand on ground

Rest Peace Life

I can see sands of time
Covering our
long lost landscape still

The burdens of past mistakes
Hidden in
Dust piled up for years

I can hope for peace
For rest for life

As we turn eyes to skies
Long since lost
Hope will not end here

Life is not for the weak
Life is for
Those who persevere

I can hope for peace
For rest for life

We're Taking Charge

As the sun goes down
The air stands still
As shadows ascend
We close in

Wealth and power
Are ours this hour
Our prize gleams
Within our grasp

We take what's ours

As the night gives way
To light of day
Our hands are filled
With tools of war

Pow'r and glory
For those who claim it
Our hands close around the spoils

We're taking charge

Raise Your Voice

Raise your voice, the end will come
Raise your voice and wait for the end

Grab shields and swords
Hilts and blades
As victors we ride unto war
Grasp tight the reins
As battles commence
High time that we settled the score

For lives to come
For lives now lost
For living to join with the dead
The time has come
The time is now
When banners of victory ascend

We've reached heights unknown
We've reached heights untold

Skies come in
This is our end

Where do we go from here

Sun Breaks Through

The most metal thing you've heard all night...

Memories are failing
My thoughts fade to black again
What lays behind me
When I have no past again

The sun breaks through the clouds
The rain dries away again
My memories knock but never appear
My path to now remains unclear
As I carry on
