"The Minotaur" as written by Gareth Michael R Liddiard, Michael Charles M Noga, Daniel Francis Luscombe and Fiona Lee Kitchin....
They come, they go
They never do not go
They come, they see
They conquer then they leave

With man-eating beliefs
Superior of death
With lineage and myth
And a half-heartedness at birth

I have the same old dream
About a tunnel by my bed
From where the stench of shit of minotaurs
Yawns like lewd and evil breath

But instinct and a map
Has set to work inside my head
Instead of shedding tears
I've learned to drink and piss instead

They come, they go
They never do not go
They come, they see
They conquer then they leave

I am in Rome
And i am going to the games
I see the gulf
And it's going to
Bore my name into the

Green green grass
The catwalks of the past
My head is like an oven
As i rest it in my palms

We were just standing on the beach
When a bull rose from the surf
I said "show him the back door my dear
He'll only paw the turf"

Three seasons came and went
Tracksuits found the dispossessed
My wife had other plans
And now a bastard surfs the web

There's nothing she can do
He does not talk, he does not move
He spends all day looking at porn
Or playing fucking Halo 2

They come, they go
They never do not go
They come, they see
They conquer then they leave

I am in Rome
And i am going to the games
I am the last to find my seat
I'm standing at the gate

Intermission comes
Nerves are touched, and smokes are screened
It's on a pack of cigarettes
Along with all our faults and memes and it says
Veni Vidi Vici

    General CommentI think it's about him talking down all the things he hates about himself. The bull pawing the turf sounds like "the bull" is all talk and no action...
    The last verse is interesting the Pack of Cigarettes refernce is to the Phillip Morris logo whic has Veni Vidi Vici written on it.

    General CommentVēnī,vīdī,vīcī is a famous sentence written by Julius Caesar. It translates as "I came, I saw, I conquered".
    I love this song. Gareth sounds posessed.
    Amazing.
