Lyrics:
Let us cast light on the First Time,
it’s the last time of your life.

That you possessed clear understanding
of your standing
and your place in the skies.


History writ in cuneiform
we’re space-borne
in light of a thousand suns.

Giant feet dance on a mega-floor
while keeping score
on walls of a thousand tons.


Let us cast light on the First Time,
it’s the last time of your life.

The giants rode down through the dark wind
and the black-finned
swam out of the ocean night.


Blocks spoken high in the temple walls
where they play ball
megaliths, trilathons

Vibrating voice of the first gods
built the last gods
a spell-spoken magic wand.

Amazing!
Haunting, driving rock. This one gets under your skin like the best Led Zeppelin. Poetic lyrics--
made me think of an "Ocean Night".
Gorgeous violin. Love it!

John Burchfield

Profound work of art!
Recorded live at Good Stuff, well, this is good stuff all right. Very seventieish. In fact, thought I was back in the seventies again listening to a bunch of young nobs trying to break into the big scene. EXCELLENT!!!
