Prelude 02:52
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

Guns 05:03
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

ORBIS 05:22
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

Casino 03:49
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
5.
The King 04:34
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

Iron Hand 04:13
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

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.
