Album: Noble Beast (2009)
  • Come what may
    Lay your eggs where it's warm
    We come here to swarm
    Come by sea
    Swarm like smoke in the dawn
    We were the young
    We were the swarm

    Midges and moths
    Cut from a cloth
    We were the young
    We were the swarm

    Flailing fetal fleas
    Feeding from the arms of the master
    Burrow into me
    And this is sure to misspell disaster
    Oh and the young in the larval stage
    Orchestrating plays
    In vestments of translucent alabaster

    So they took me to the hospital
    They put my body through a scan
    What they saw there would impress them all
    For inside me grows a man
    Who speaks with perfect diction
    As he orders my eviction
    As he acts with more conviction
    Than I

    Oh, burrow into me
    This is sure to misspell disaster
    Oh, burrow into me
    You're feeding from the arms of the master

    [Repeat: x3]
    We were the young
    We were the swarm
    We were the young

    Come what may
    Come what may
