    Song

    [Lost Coastlines by Okkervil River]

    Lyrics:
    Packed and all eyes turned in, no one to see on the quay
    No one waving for me just the shoreline receding
    Ticket in my hand, thinking wish I didn't hand it in

    'Cause who said sailing is fine?
    Leaving behind all the faces that I might replace
    If I tried on that long ride
    Looking deep inside but I don't want to look so deep inside yet

    Sit down, sit down on the prow to wave bye
    There might not be another star further on the line
    Look out, look out at each town that glides by
    And there's another crowd to drown in crying eyes

    And see how that light you love now just won't shine
    There might just be another star that's high and far in some other sky
    We sing, "Is that marionette real enough yet
    To step off of that set to decide what her hands might be doing?
    Ruining the play, to in the ensuing melee escape."

    We packed up all of our bags
    The ship's deck now sags from the weight of our tracks
    As we pace beneath flags black and battered
    Rattling our swords in service of some faded foreign lord

    And we sail out on orders from him but we find
    The maps he sent to us don't mention lost coastlines
    Where nothing we've actually seen has been mapped or outlined
    And we don't recognize the names upon these signs

    And every night finds us rocking and rolling on waves wild and wide
    Well, we have lost our way, nobody's gonna say it outright
    Just go la la la la la la la la la...
    Oh, la la la la la la la la la la la...
    Oh, oh, oh

    La la la la la la
    La la la la la
    La la la la la la

    La la la la la la
    La la la la la
    La la la la la la

    La la la la la la
    La la la la la
    La la la la la la

    For some reason the link is busted, but it's a picture of a prehistoric land crocodile catching a horse in it's jaws. It's called a pristichampus

    scratch that it works now

    Hey Guys, Hadn't forgotten!!
    In homage to HR Giger's passing recently I am going to use one of his pics (lillith) which can be looked at from a number of genres (Fantasy, Scifi, steampunk and so on). Also as the band Celtic Frost had a great relationship with him, I am submitting some of their lyrics as well. Interpret as you will peoples....

    "Jewel Throne" by Celtic Frost (album: To Mega Therion)

    Once prayed to my gods, searching for the whistled memories
    Empty eyes are staring now, to my feet a land of sorrow
    I'm the king, sitting in the dark hiding from the shadows of the wind
    Wafts of might, wine of fire, I was called to taste

    Silver horses brought us here, to the edge of the universe
    We left the falling walls as the stars' collapse began
    Now I rest on the highest steps, revealed the eternal frontier
    As I gaze from the Jewel Throne to the portal of infinity

    Fallen have the "chosen ones", debris remain in the dust
    Far behind, beyond the sands, the wind sings to those who fell
    Forever now, my hands laid down the poisoned weapons
    I will pray to my gods, searching for the mysteries

    here's mine:


    They came over the sea
    To watch upon the dark
    They reached the highest peaks
    To maintain the peace
    They flew from afar
    As one with the wind
    Under their wings
    They shall gather the weak

    Everywhere I go they are near
    Every time I call they will hear
    And fly for me

    I have seen the dragons
    Flying far away
    Painting the sky
    In crimson shades
    I have heard the wolves
    As they are closing in
    With their burning eyes
    But I have not felt the fear

    I have seen the shadows
    Gathering in the East
    Failing the Sun
    With the darkest veil

    My sorrows will fade away
    I can dry my tears
    And I will know I am safe
    As the watch over me
