about

If "Scratch" was an album of uncertainty, then CAOB may well be a resolution. More traditionally Gothic in tone than it's predecessor and seeped knee deep in the bleak choral tones COAB is a steady progression of The Greyfield Stray's style.

From the dark laments of "Mercury Sun" to the openly political wrath of "Leftist" and the Post Punk punch of "God Will Forgive Us" An album that dares you to get lost in it's reaching tendrils of sound.

Track Name: Spanish Rain (Reprise)
Watch me burn in this blissful sunset
watch me burn in the Spanish rain
In the throws of ecstasy
caught between the pleasure and the pain
Like a lamb to slaughter
Knife that hovers slowly overhead
one day soon yeah I will join them
so near and yet so far

The lightning strikes and then she blinds
I float here slowly out of time
I wish that I could make you mine
Give it to me
Without you I can draw no breath
Beneath the waves I choke to death
Without this pleasure of the flesh

In my eyes a witch's forest
in my blood a raging sea
in my hear the black gate opens
and daemons dance their wicked reverie
and I shall dance among them
with no fear, but apprehension
no music but the deafening silence
the restless man
and the spiritual maiden

The lightning strikes and then she blinds
I float here slowly out of time
I wish that I could make you mine
Give it to me
Without you I can draw no breath
Beneath the waves I choke to death
Without this pleasure of the flesh

Give it to me
Give it to me
Give it to me
Track Name: Mercury Sun
Give me direction baby
through this labyrinth
of agony
give me a solemn promise
that you will wait for me
in your marble palace

Oh I'm lost to the heat
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury Sun
Oh I'm lost to the madness
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury sun

Give me some love angel
wrap me in your wings
shield me from the grey
give me no tomorrow
fear time won't wait for me
as it waits for you

Oh I'm lost to the heat
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury Sun
Oh I'm lost to the madness
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury sun

Oh I'm lost to the heat
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury Sun
Oh I'm lost to the madness
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury sun
of the Mercury sun
Track Name: Leftist
Behind your thick rimmed eyes
There's nothing there
nothing but the void
where your soul used to be
dreamless
repeating your mantra like a zombie
slaving
scheming
crawling like the dog you are

and you can't see me
no I don't see you

dreamless
repeating your mantra like a zombie
slaving
scheming
crawling like the dog you are

When my kind die of "their" crimes
you're quick to say it's justified
do you even believe in anything anymore
do you even believe in anything you say

Behind your thick rimmed eyes
There's nothing there
nothing but the void
where your soul used to be
dreamless
repeating your mantra like a zombie
slaving
scheming
crawling like the dog you are
Track Name: Nevada Box Cutter
Bare faced lies about your size
your decency in nature
no apology can save her
she has to die
she finally crossed the line
the venom spat at you online
a vicious sentence structure
her arteries shall rupture
face to face
no war in cyberspace

Nevada
Box cutter
Divide her

In the red room you were found
"do you like me" was the question
your identity so pleasant washed away
replaced by pure disgrace
and now the lights are out
and the mist has flourished scarlet
you were carving up the harlot
when they came
to take you far away

Nevada
Box cutter
Divide her
Track Name: Televisual
I have seen the static light
of a future drawn in cathodes
let us breathe again
let us go outside
there, the men in black and white
they have noticed you this time
because you thought too hard
about it all

This poison's often hard to find
disguised by boring diatribe
and slowly seeping through your eyes
tears up your soul and hypnotises
creeping, crawling up your spine
and slowly leaking in your eyes
leaking in your eyes

We have forged a second life
in boundless information
you are still a child
they want to keep you there
it's fine, escape from time to time
but beware of deviation
from your chosen path
lest you lose it all

This poison's often hard to find
disguised by boring diatribe
and slowly seeping through your eyes
tears up your soul and hypnotises
creeping, crawling up your spine
and slowly leaking in your eyes
leaking in your eyes
Track Name: Field of Echoes
Fall away from dreamless sleeping
pull away and follow me
through the field of echoes we will run
Look behind the tattered curtain
look at them and you will see
who is really in control
so follow me
follow me

I'll save you all from merchant of deceit
I'll free you all from chains that you can't see
and when we find our Eden you will see
all the promise made to you I'll keep
so follow me

Men of coin and power yearning
stretching shadows in the northern sea
poison fields of echoes that they grow
See the ghosts of a former empire
see the fear in the their serpent eyes
white light of a living soul
so follow me
follow me

I'll save you all from merchant of deceit
I'll free you all from chains that you can't see
and when we find our Eden you will see
all the promise made to you I'll keep
so follow me
Track Name: God Will Forgive Us (feat. His Deathlyness)
God will forgive us one day
He'll forgive us of our sins
He'll remember one day
He'll remember everything

We are the creatures lost and lonely
from the dark side of the sun
born of a power
forgot to erase us
Magnificent
Malevolent
bereft of love and comfort
the Judas light
that pulls us in

God will forgive us one day
He'll forgive us of our sins
He'll remember one day
He'll remember everything
Track Name: Steady Redpills Joe
One step at a time
you're coming round
round to my way of thinking
Cause you stepped out of line
and they had no mercy for you
could it be
they weren't you friends
could it be
That this is the end
could it be
that they lied to you

I'm pretty sure I

Told you so
Told you so
but you didn't listen to us
Told you so
told you once before


One day at a time
you will understand
certain twings aren't meant be
They are oil
and we are water
Could it be
That they want you dead
The call for peace
it's all in your head
could it be
they have no place for you

I'm pretty sure I

Told you so
Told you so
but you didn't listen to us
Told you so
told you once before

And If I lied I'll take the fall
But I'm sure you will look the fool
I'm pretty sure
I'm pretty sure
Track Name: Electronic Girls and Wasted Seed
Diving deep to find the pearl
in murky waters
you abuse yourslef
You hands as filthy
as your soul
So deep the need
this poisoned well
you make excuses to drown yourself
in nothing of substance
this treasured hell

Find yourself
a new electronic girl
to drain your wealth
and do it to yourself

Incomplete
you wonder why
could it be the others lied
and there's no value in the one
But you woould rather live or die
by ugly pleasures of your dirty mind
sick fantasies that leave you blind
Track Name: The Wolves Are At Your Door
Where were you when our youth betrayed us all
and sold themselves to slavery
owned by long nosed whisperers
were you there when our nation sold our soul
for misguided chivalry
now the wolves are at our door

They're coming
keep running
they'll show no mercy to us
close your eyes now
feel safe inside
but know the wolves are at your door

Where were you when europa called?
Did you hear our mother's cry?
She needs us more than ever
Where were you when I was dying?
Were you dying by my side, or did you run and hide?

They're coming
keep running
they'll show no mercy to us
close your eyes now
feel safe inside
but know the wolves are at your door
Track Name: IMG
Yesterday seems far away
for i stand here in the shadows
and for our love
the beast was slain
and if I could you know I would
offer you gardens of roses
but I stand here
alone this final day

(where are you now?)
I'll give you the world my dirty love
if you want it?
(where are you now?)
I'll push the button, blow it up
if you want it?

if you want it?

Retrograde the rusty blade
the blood that pours out from the shadows
and drags us in kicking and screaming
to somewhere we must lay
the flowers bloom the berries grow
in your garden of dementia
to kill the queen
and set us free

(where are you now?)
I'll give you the world my dirty love
if you want it?
(where are you now?)
I'll push the button, blow it up
if you want it?

if you want it?

I'll give you the world my dirty love
if you want it?
I'll push the button, blow it up
if you want it?
