Agents of Oblivion Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Endsmouth (4:24)
It's only the end of the world again
Down by the ocean
The frogmen are surfacing but,
The beast beneath the skin has been
Whispering, wondering
Wondering, whispering

It's only the end of the world again
It's only the end of the world again
It's only the end

Raise and sing
Shedding his ocean skin
Moon green awakening and
Somethin like a woman
Screams, screams
To me screaming

It's only the end of the world again
It's only the end of the world again
It's only the end
2. Slave Riot (3:21)
Long ago I kissed her skull
Sunbleached and beautiful
Slick-wet with diesel fuel
We'll watch the midnight movie
Painted with the sky
Bleeding white butterflies
After surfacing from the mirror
(where rabbits lead us)
Women shaking death from his hair
I swear, the wind sounded like
Spirits voicing all the things that
Tortured them
(when they were men)
The fire light was an offering
To the gods that runs thru the bark of the trees
I believe, like the sky above me
We won't live to see it end
Now lets pretend that it could have been
(any other way)
Long and slow I kissed her skull
Sunbleached and beautiful
Slick-wet with diesel fuel
We'll watch the midnight movie
Painted with the sky
Bleeding white butterflies
Older ghosts than you and me listen to the whispering
Whisper to the listening old grey ghost
And I whisper to the listening sky,
By the gods above us
We wont live to see it end,
Now lets not pretend that it could have been
(any other way)
Bleeding white butterflies
Lond and slow I kissed her skull
3. A Song That Crawls (4:10)
I am a brother to the dragon and a companion to owls.
My skin is black-upon me and my bones are burned with heat
[Jobs chapter 30 verses 29-30]

Little creeper in the shade
Under my brain in caterpillars hundredth eye
Under mushroom blouds in the rain
Child I wrote your name in sparrows blood
Upon a madhouse wall
I drug my belly cross the riverbed of skulls to sing
Y'all
A song that crawls
That song that crawls
That song that crawl
When I spoke your name out loud again
I wondered when you'd bring
The rain back to me
I'm wondering had we ever really lived at all
When they closed the coffin lid on the tombstone
Kid gonna sing you
A song that crawls,
A song that crawls
4. Dead Girl (6:25)
[Written by Acid Bath]
[Paegan Terrorism Tactics (1996)]

Dead girl
There will never be another one that dreams like you
Dead girl
There will never be another one that screams like you
When death sleeps, it dreams of you
Delilah played the dead girl at the freak show
She smiles like a ghost
Like zombies eatin dust in mexico
When death sleeps, it dreams of you
She asked if it would hurt
I smiled and said no
The lie ran down my chin like embryo
She smiles like corpse
Like zombies eatin dust in omaha
When death sleeps, it dreams of you
When death sleeps, it dreams of you
Dead girl
There will never be another one to look in your eyes
Dead girl
There will never be another one that bleeds like you
I been drying in a dead age
I been reeking of the new plague
The sound of the ocean is dead
Its just the echo of the blood in your head
Sister, burn the temple
And stand beneath the moon
The sound of the ocean is dead
Its just the echo of the blood in your head
The sound of the ocean is dead
Its just the echo of the blood in your head
5. Phantom Green (5:06)
I feel as though I am living with people who are not yet born, with monsters who escape from the womb before their time
[Henry Miller]

Just a cold millennium in
Another dry age
Just a cold millennium in
Another dry age
The vanishing man has
Madness so sow there are secrets he knows that hve never been told
I was sleeping with the insects
Yeah...

I was dreamin' of the ocean
The devil is just out of frame,
The devil is just out of frame,
It's such a cold dimension this
Slow burn in my head (soul, blood)
Phantom green is the color of the sky
It's the color I see when I close my eyes
Phantom green is the color of the sky
It's the color I see when I close my eyes
The devil is just out of frame,
The devil is just out of frame
6. The Hangman's Daughter (4:34)
Woman and child
Like a feather falls from the sky
So dark, so dark in the moonlight
Naked we worship the night sky
No man can hold what the darkness can sow
Gonna leave an ugly skull when ya go
Tongues like horns violently born a new soul
The soft dead awake alive in love
Hard for the hangmans daughter
Naked we worship the night sky
No man can hold what the darkness can sow
Gonna leave an ugly skull when ya go
7. Ladybug (4:33)
Lady bug, lady bug, lady bug
Kisses the bones pushing thru
Everybody here seems to be in their head but me
Twitching, twisted
Beyond alone
Spiritless and out of context
Ultra-violet beam
Everybody's eyes seem to move from their faces
The sunset's in reverse
The devil's gonna dream when he gets home of the ants upon the bones
Germs on public telephones
Lady bug, lady bug
Kisses the bones pushing thru
Swaying with this wicked city
Twisting and turning with you
Everybodys eyes seem to move from their faces
The sunset's in reverse
Lady bug, lady bug
Kisses the bones pushing thru
Swaying with this wicked city
Twisting and turning with you
The devils gonna dream when he gets home of the ants upon the bones
Germs on public telephones
Lady bug, lady bug, lady bug
Kisses the bones pushing thru
8. Ash of the Mind (3:52)
The ash of my mind in the back of my throat
Out on the ocean of curling, fetal smoke
The anti-spirit of time
Just behind these eyes of mine
I can remember all that you've forgotten
Grave dirt in the eyes
The darkness there between your thighs
The incubus that sucks me dry
Beneath the voodoo sky
Touched but untouchable
Bleeding black into the blue bayou
Seem like it was friday high noon I smoked and you bled
Thought that I was dead
I can't remember all that you've forgotten
Forsaken
Theres grave dirt in my eyes
The darkness there between your thighs
The incubus that sucks me dry
Beneath the voodoo sky
Smile after smile
Chasing the last over the lips
Smile after smile
Chasing the last over the lips
The ash of my,
The ash of my,
The ash of my,
The ash of my mind, my mind
Theres grave dirt in the eyes
The darkness there between your thighs
The incubus that sucks me dry
(all night)
Theres grave dirt in the eyes
The darkness there between your thighs
The incubus that sucks me dry
Beneath the voodoo sky

Touched but untouchable
9. Wither (4:18)
We wither and blow where the smoke goes
Closing my eyes to the sunlight
Withering tonight
One thing is certain
The rest is a lie
One thing is certain
Life flies
Molly,
Molly,
Molly
Mother of night
Your sons of the dirt bless you
Mother of night
10. Paroled In '54 (5:04)
Summer blood for fighting dogs
Mardi gras nineteen fifty-four
OH NO he never liked lincoln at all my child
I always thought the sun was just some hole in the sky till now
As we float this corpse ashore
Paroled in 54'
The four whores of the apocalypse laugh (laugh and laugh)
Houses burning full of yellowed photographs
Of our children in fear disappearing from the ledge
Is god just an echo I hear in my head yeah
As we float this corpse ashore
Paroled in 54'
(yeah, yeah)
Summer blood for fighting dogs
I been everywhere on the same side of some road with you
The way that I remember being born was like waking from a dream
(you were there with me)
I bet your mother never ever heard you sing that song for me yeah
The way that I remember being born was like waking from a dream
I bet your mother never ever hear you sing that song for me
Somewhere we can't see from here
Somewhere we can't see from here
Somewhere we can't see from here
11. Anthem (For This Haunted City) (3:40)
I spy yellow green roses in mary's garden
I am god don't love you anymore
Down in new orleans
I know where the devil dwells
Within ya
I have loved the whore
I know how it feels down there
Down in new orleans
I spy yellow blue sky pie
Between the teeth of whores
God don't love you anymore
Down there
Down in new orleans
12. Cosmic Dancer (5:34)
[T. Rex cover (from the album "Electric Warrior" (1971). Written by Marc Bolan]

I was dancing when I was twelve
I was dancing when I was twelve
I was dancing when I was ahhh...
I was dancing when I was ahhh...
I danced myself right out the womb
I danced myself right out the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself right out the womb
I was dancing when I was eight
I was dancing when I was eight
Is it strange to dance so late
Is it strange to dance so late
I danced myself into the tomb
I danced myself into the tomb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself into the tomb
Is it wrong to understand
The fear that dwells inside a man
Whats it like to be a loon
I liken it to a balloon
I danced myself right out the womb
I danced myself right out the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself into the tomb
But then again once more
I danced myself right out the womb
I danced myself right out the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself into the tomb
I danced myself into the tomb
I danced myself into the tomb
13. Big Black Backwards (6:42)
Deep as the terrible sky
That you fell from this
This terrible beauty is born
Dethroned
I haunt the saltmines
A living wound
Living, breathing wound

Deep was the ocean and wide
That I slither from
Terrible beauty is born
Dethroned
I haunt the saltmines
A living wound
Living, breathing wound...
