Track Name: Swamp Ritual
Echoed chanting
Mournful dirge
Dragons roar
and quicksand surge

And dire monks curse
the setting sun
Their Swamp Ritual
has begun
Track Name: Ditch Witch
Start the fire
the flames grew
Ditch WItch
You're through

See her burn
Watch her burn
Scarlet fire

Ashes raised
into the air
it binds as one
Through the haze
her eyes burn clear
The blackened sun
Track Name: Ancients Weary
Time slips a fractured mind
A fleeting thought you cannot find
Boatman says "Can you pay"?
What was learned, on this day

On this day

Ancients Weary

Running faster to stay in place
left to rot in a made up race
Boatman says "Can you pay"?
What was learned, on this day
Track Name: The Outer Rim/Cosmonaut
The outer rim
a solar light
Tremendous height

The outer rim
the breath of space
Cosmic embrace
Track Name: Whiskey Wizard
He passes out at the crack of dawn
In his lair, hand on bong
Whiskey WIzard he's after you
Out of life, and out of tune

Whiskey Wizard

From the ice, the Kraken appears
Whiskey Wizard has no fear
A fireball in each hand
to defend, his pentagram

Whiskey Wizard
Track Name: Tesseract
Stench of bodies
fills the room
Take it with you
to the tomb
Inhale deeply
fill the room
Exhale slowly
it consumes


Fifth dimension
oh so clear
Racing forward
abandon fear
Shifting focus
lines of light
Given to you
Gift of sight
