Liner Notes: 

Tales of brave Ulysses, known as the most capable and dangerous of liars

Lyrics: 

Can the listener understand the tale told
No.
How Carybdis, the waves, the rocks, took so many souls?
So.

Still you must give ear and trust

Driven by the waves, we met those who gave their days away
So
I cast away my name, descended through the darkness and the shame
So

I have come, and I alone,

Home to the silent, the weak and the violent
The proud and the strong, the right and the wrong
The chaste matron weaver, the false thieving giver
Unassuming form on the eve of the storm

And what guests can be found
Will be cut

down went my men, one by one, the whirlpool put out the light of their eyes when they
drowned in a deep, darker sleep, than even the lotus could realize

Righteous and pure. I feel unsure and cold
Though
It’s unclear how I could stray paths so dear and unafraid
So

Trust the tale, when the truth fails



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Good presentation, strange tale. The insistent guitar adds an interesting edginess to the song.
