"Black Bile, White Lies" as written by and Brooks Cappelli....
He's reigning down in the shadow lands again.
Born as the bastard son, lost in his own pretension.
Dastardly concerned, yet chipped away in time,
You'll come to find out that your boy is never coming back.

He's reared himself a throne,
So bow to the king of nothing.
Lost himself again in black bile, bow to your king.
His majesty, the wretch.

He’s drenched himself in the sweetest of all sin.
Just one more rail he cries, as one foot graces his grave.
Fearlessly inept, a failure from the womb.
Apologies but your boy is never coming back.

He's reared himself a throne,
So bow to the king of nothing.
Lost himself again in black bile, bow to your king.
His majesty, the wretch.

He’s failed you all once again, conquered by the poisonous bliss.
There will be no revival this time around.
He’s failed you all once again, conquered by the poisonous bliss.
Well, he’s far too gone now, too far gone to save.

He's reared himself a throne,
So bow to the king of nothing.
Lost himself again in black bile, bow to your king.
His majesty, the wretch, his majesty.
Bow to the king.
His majesty, his majesty, the wretch.

    General CommentI heard this song recently on Triple J Short.Fast.Loud. and I really like it. It's definitley a sort of new sound for IDT, but it's really refreshing.

    The lyrics are written really well, and I'm just starting to try and get a clear meaning from them.

    Ahh, from what I'm getting so far.. perheps a boy who has had a rough past but he fought his way to the top basically. Only now he's forgotten how hard it was for him and now he's placed himself before anyone- like he's the best, untouchable.

    "Lost in self again"- lost in self love?
    "Bow to the king of nothing."- mocking him, becasue really he's not that great.
    "Reared himself a throne."- he made himself all he is now.


    That's pretty much what I got on my first go listening to it. Although I'm pretty sure there's quite a lot more to it. So when I get time, I'll come back and have another go with these lyrics. Maybe I'll read them from a different perspective or something, who knows?
