Milk of Toads

lyrics

milk of toads
slimy dream
a chant bereft
of sweet guises

visions come
my dream-shape
hanging from a tree
amidst the wilderness

milk of toads
slimy dreams
the wilderness turns
into a battlefield

a giant with my own face
did I see
himself the bane of all
undaunted in battle
was he

for centuries
he gladdened the ravens
but finally he fell down
and warriors carried his body
towards the tree
from which I was hanging

- to your own self you shall be sacrificed - they screamed

I fell into the darkness
and I became one with the tree

people say my hands
became the branches
people say my legs
became the roots

and one day
some ravens flying by
ate the tree-borne fruit

and so I flew with them
each of them took me
to a different corner
of my land

milk of toads
slimy dreams
you want to kill me?
first you must kill all the ravens
