Periscope extends the lens
Veiney hands can't mend
Your broken little baby's remains
We all fall to bits just the same

Eyes down for a full house
Yeah I love you long time
They christened me to give me a name
But now, I know that I'm to blame

There was no man in his eyes
And no lights to beam home those ships
Can't even extend out his arm to go and cash in his chips
And I wish that I could not rightly place this

At least I can say that I was there
That I witnessed his demise
But you my lucky son
Because of your size you would not remember

This has sent your only son to an early grave
What you thought was an accident was deliberate

There's a twitch in his hand
As I offered him mine
But our captain only cared about his crew
But you would not remember, would you?

And if that time should come my brother
And I should offer you my hand
You'll know just what to do
What not to put me through, you must remember

Come your expiration
Come your sell-by date
And there is no companion
It'll be too late

All this misfortune is punishment
He sings of gods that desert him
He falls again
But undeterred he hides from the light

    General CommentWhen i first heard Vorhees i thought this is a nice relaxing bonus track, but after a while i got deeper into this song and now it has become my favourite 'size song. Especially the second time he sings the misfortune-part with the freaking out guitars and the shaking voice kicks my balls.

    General CommentReminds me a lot of Slint's Spiderland LP, both in style of music and how it grows on me every listen. Great song!
