Album: Common Dreads (2009)
  • Now I was feeling like a total giant!
    But now it feels like Silvius Brabo has sliced my hand off
    and thrown it in the river!

    Now I was just doing my job,
    my feet sink into the bed of the Scheldt
    but now my fingers are reeling about with the fishes

    I know I'm not making any sense
    (no you're not)
    all will be revealed
    (well I hope so)
    all will be revealed if we travel
    back in time

    I've got to rest, it's for the best.
    To build a nest, to take the quest.
    To be given just one chance, to be
    the best.

    Go forth and re-colonize.

    It appears the foundations
    of all our great nations
    are lies and indoctrinations.
    So if Silvius Brabo collects the hands of giants
