Franklin Meets The Titan (Studio Remaster)

by The Retinal Circus



This'll be part of the new The Retinal Circus album 'Shaggy Gods Stories'
(I think it's from 2012 from a sadly buggered EMac)
Art by Morgan Myers (Mymorg)


Wandering through the yews
(Of pastures green)
Musing on the scope
(Of this gilded scene)
A cape of gold holds close
(Warms over the day)
In quiet contemplation
(I rest within the shade)
Giant raised a foot
(Then he stomps it down)
I lie cold and broken
(Within the ground)
Blood pours out of my nose
(My perforated lungs)
My testicles reduced
(To two smashed plumbs)
Giant raised a foot
(somethings afoot afoot again)
Stomps it down again
I am naught but compost
Within the glen
Giant raised a foot
(without a single second thought)
He performs a dance upon my corpse

Here we only deal with shapes, platonic relationships with time keeping devices, spaniards with fantastic taches', seahorses suspended in the vacuum of space, nebulae, Gregorian calendars and an analysis of the human race with the conclusion we are all APES..
