Metridium Fields Lyrics

(6)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Megaptera in the Delta (0:50)
2. Neonate (6:39)
You're free from your womb now
But this maternity ward is a feeding ground
Don't look back for ages
Your mother's toothy smile can smell you for miles

You too will eat your young
You too will eat your young
Consume all that crosses your path
Each morsel may be your last
Never cling like the remora
To those you spawned you in the past

You too will eat your young
When there's only enough for one
In times of need this must be done
From womb to gut it has begun

Eat your young

The songs of giants lure you
Will you follow
Their scents of gluttony tempt you
Will you follow

Energy is precious and journey long
Feed now and breed again
The birth is food
Now feed on

Tides pull and convince
Their direction is the best
Waves hide all that lies
Well beyond their crest

You too will eat your young
From womb to gut it has begun
Eat your young
3. Versus the Siren (9:23)
She wails and whispers longingly
Calling out to those no longer listening
Her sweet incantations lost in infamy
Siren fools no one but still she will sing

Fall just like those before you
I will
Fall just like those before you
Pass still

Her lure can redirect the oldest currents
Countless have fallen before
Where winged feet will soar
Fall just like those before you
I will
Fall just like those before you
Pass still

On by
And I will
Pass still
On by
4. Ampullae of Lorenzini (9:16)
Why weren't you here
When I stood alone
You won't believe
All that I've learned
And all that I have known

She pulls me through
All of her bodies
Calling out
Magnetically

Her depths hide nothing from me

I befriended deepest fathoms
And returned stronger still
Starving for your praise at the crest of every swell
I find dissuasion of tides
I find dissuasion of tides

She uses no words to reveal her deep
Your shallows blur all that you speak
To the equal before me
I find dissuasion of tides
I find dissuasion of tides
5. Summit (6:39)
Waiting for the sun
To burn away the season
Revealing the place we called home
Built by our blood and our blood alone

We will find our summit again

This blood does not flow through her veins
As she walks on floors by mother laid
Sheltered by the roof my father built tall
To shield us from all that may fall

We will find our summit again
It will take more than the snow
To bury all that you have known

Waiting for the sun to burn away the season
Revealing the place we called home
Built by our blood and our blood alone
Soon will come the winter's end
We will find our summit again
It will take more than the snow
To bury all that you have known
6. Eating Machine (0:55)
7. Revolution in the Water (5:33)
When you looked towards the heavens
You faced the wrong way
Your actions slaughter saints
To whom you need pray

No need to take communion
You've been feeding all along
On ancient existence
Old as time is long

The rising sun desecrates the embodiment
Of a blue earth
Destroying the balance of a system in place
Since all life's birth

Revolution
In the water

Untold treasures
Lay hidden inside
Bodies left plunging
A black hell awaiting

Don't swim through the water here
Don't feed from the food found here
What floats above all men must fear

Don't swim through the water here
Don't feed from the food found here
What floats above all men must fear
8. Metridium Field (21:09)
Must we swim on forever?
In search of where the light breaks
Pipelines must end somewhere
Twenty kicks into the abyss.

Must we swim on forever?
In search of where the light breaks
Pipelines must end somewhere
Twenty kicks into the abyss.
