Pluck your eyes out
With the master's withered hand
And the planets
Grope about without a plan
On your knees now
Because you'll only suffer more
You must suffer
Yes, you mustn't only die

And the heavens
Grinding down, you can't be well
Hanging heavy in a sky
As black as oil
Crawling slowly
Face down in the muck
Crawling slowly
With an outstretched
Withered hand

    General CommentI heard this song for the first time at the Austin Psych Fest 2015. John Dwyer was like a wizard, belting out the lyrics with the momentum of a hurricane behind him. It was a transcendent moment.
