about

Recorded in a remote cabin in the northern woods of Wisconsin, ORBIS captures the sonic amalgamation of electric fuzz, droning organs, thundering drums, crushing bass and soulful vocals. The end is a result is 26 minutes of heavy grooves drenched in reverb.

Track Name: Prelude
Always a dreamer
Reaching out for more
Wild eyes forward
Gazing through your door

Strange machinations
Origin unknown
Silver lumination
Bathe me in your glow

Light all surrounding
Night an endless road
Silver lumination
Bathe me in your glow

Strange fascination
Ecstasy of gold
Shine on your diamond
Bathe me in your glow
Track Name: Guns
My Guns been cold for many days, dear
But bullet holes I spy upon your door
You had me right within your sights, babe
But you don't want to shoot my gun no more

My Gun so cold as of lately
But you don't need to ask me what it's for
My Gun so nice says the lady of the knife
Yeah, but you don't want to shoot to kill no more

My Guns been cold so many days
But there's shots upon your door
Yeah, you had me in your sights
But now I'm going back to War
With my Gun that's so nice
The Lady knows just what it's for
But I aint got no bullets left for you no more
Track Name: ORBIS
You can shine on my eye, on my eye
Well you can shine your light upon my eye, on my eye
Well you can shine your light on my eye, on my eye
But I can't put my hands up into your sky

Well you can shine your light on my hide, on my hide
Shine your light on my hide, on my hide
Well you can shine your light upon my hide, on my hide
But you cant be that rider by my side

All is fair
In my war
With your love
With your love

Well you can put your hands upon my chest, on my chest
Well you can put your hands on my chest, on my chest
Well you can put your hands upon my chest, on my chest
'Cuz I cant give you my love, but I can give you the rest

Shine your light on my hide, on my hide
And you can shine your light on my hide, on my hide
And you can shine your light on my hide, on my hide
Can't be that rider by my side, yeah

All is fair
in my war
With your love
With your love

I can't stop this evil feeling
Rising power deep within me
Silver vaulting skyward gleaming
Hear my call, night queen
My love, The Moon
and I'll be coming soon

I can't stop this evil feeling
Rising power from My Moon

Well you can shine your light on eye, on my eye
And you can shine your light on my head, on my head
Well you can shine your light into my eye, my eye
But I can't put my hands up into your sky
And you can shine your light on my hide on my hide
Shine your light on my head on my head
And you can put your hands upon my chest, on my chest
Cuz I cant give you my love but I can give you the rest

All is fair
In my war
With your love
With your love
Track Name: Casino
Across the desert and far away
There's a place where games are played
Some for pleasure and some for pain
Some for fortune some for fame

Some for fortune and fame

They're coming here from near and far
To see the lights and see the stars
And hear a man that plays the blues
To make all our dreams come true

To make our dreams come true
Track Name: The King
Yes I remember the first time I met you, baby
But I couldn't count the years
That I've been trying so hard to lose my tail
But this time I'm gonna disappear
You know that nothing will ever be easy
'Cuz I'm gonna leave you all alone
And you can cry, baby, you can cry, baby

But I'm still not coming home

Yeah, It seems so very long ago
I was walkin' through your door
Just to sing to you my melody
To watch your head hit the floor
No not even the blues is gonna come back easy
'Cuz I'm gonna leave you alone
And you can cry, baby, you can cry, baby

But I'm still not coming home

You know the rain hits my window
But it won't sound the same
As when we're lying there a-naked in my evil games
I'm taking all of these tears, yes every one that I've cried
I put them into my pen, babe, you know I tell you no lie
And no not even the blues is gonna come back easy, baby
'Cuz I'm gonna leave you alone
And you can cry, baby, you can cry, baby
But I'm still not coming home
Track Name: Iron Hand
Feel the wind, uneasy
With the Devil's song
Mean ships a-heaving
Battle call is strong

And there stands the Nightmare
With the Iron Hand
All madly laughing
Onto the field again

The trees fill with laughing
And the Cobble stone
Will shake beneath the feet of my men
With their heads held high
They'd be honored to die

-----

Then the Hills are crawling
With my bloody men
Black clad and dashing
Onto the field again

Now roar on, my men, raid hard
On their heels with our hounds
You know we're right behind them
This world's ours where men will fall
By our hand, its too late
Our guns have already found them
