Once in a dream the foolish king
The hearts of queens and ever after
Sold it for a third world war, the crown of thorns, his majesty
At bishops gate the piper plays
To seas of green and doris day
Flower trumpets blare the marching snares
Of transparent make-believe

Breathing underwater

Nocturnal spell the iron bell
A withered sage's prophecy
Of open books king fisher hooks
And scientific lunacy
Mythical runes pegasus boots
Divine gifts and in our rapture
A slow divorce invisible force
A hand that will crush the dream

In house of york of noble blood
A battle sword wears so proudly
On once once red lips and virgin wrists
And fair maidens slumbering
Candles and veils a misers tale
Of holy grails and in between
The gods of ye and trilogies
Set out to destroy themselves


from E​(​i​)​ther Or, released April 18, 2008
