"Megalodon" as written by and Troy Sanders Brann Dailor....
Myth or legend
Nymph tale washed ashore
Near the kraken sleepeth stirs coral and bone
Infinite city
No sexy sneer
Hideous creation
Human and animal
Banter songs of rudeness to be adhered
Not on rocks that glisten
Harps to listen
Comb hair
Tear right to pieces
Left to recess a watery grave

Sensing the blood of prey
Swimming in fear for life
Rolling over
Falling into jaws
Teeth that chatter
It distracts them all
The Fiji mermaid
She will let it know
Time is coming to feed and know

Rolling over
Falling into jaws
Teeth that chatter
It distracts them all
The Fiji mermaid
She will let it know
Time is coming to feed and know

    General CommentNo, i think it's about a fucking big shark. The name would suggest so, as would the lines "Sensing the blood of prey" and "rolling over, falling into jaws". I think it's about the shark, but also how it could be linked with mythology. That it feeds on mermaids, or how it naturally linked to a mermaid, or a mermaid can transform into one. Actually, that would make sense, that the mermaid pures sailors towards her, then turns into a bastard big shark, which would explain the line "hideous creation, human and animal".

    General Commentits talking about moby dick being super big and killing lots of sailors. the sexy sneer i think is about moby's crooked jaw which makes it appear to have that face. its a human and animal to ahab cause to him it represents all that is evil in the world.

    General Comment"All four of us are fascinated with the magnificence of Mammoths and enormous creatures, both myth and fact," states Troy. "We go to museums just to look at full skeletons of Mammoths and Mastodons. The magnificence is amazing and the same thing with the whale. And these are animals of truth that existed and still do. The magnificence of the whales is awe-inspiring. The gnarliness [sic] of a shark is over-whelming. Tying that magnificence of reality in with the awe associated with myth and legend speaks to all of us. We know that the Loch Ness Monster is a myth, but we wrote "Ol'e Nessie" in her honor. We want to dip our hands in the Loch and hope that she appears. The myth of the Figi Mermaid is where the entire lyrics for "Megalodon" came from.²

    Myth or legend, Nymph tale washed ashore,
    Near the Kraken sleepeth stirs coral and bone,
    Infinite city, No sexy sneer, Hideous creation,
    Human and animal,
    Banter songs of rudeness to be adhered,
    Not on rocks that glisten, Harps to listen, Comb hair,
    Tear right to pieces, Left to recess a watery grave,
    Sensing the blood of prey, Swimming in fear for life,
    Rolling over, Falling into jaws, Teeth that chatter,
    It distracts them all, The Fiji Mermaid,
    She will let it know, Time is coming to feed and gnaw

    "It's the exact opposite of the beautiful mermaids sitting on glistening rocks, combing their hair," says Troy. "This isn't the case...these are the wickedly horrible, gnarly-faced Figi Mermaids that chattered their teeth beyond your boat until you looked over the side and they drag you under and eat you. They're supposedly made of coral and bone.... Stories like that, we find amazing.

    We were destined to have a song called "Megalodon." We visited the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum in St. Augustine, Florida where they have a Megalodon jaw. I stood in the jaw. I'm 6'4" and the jaw still wasn't touching my head. This is a creature that existed with a mouth opening up bigger than six-and-a-half feet and it was like ten feet wide. Just the jaws and teeth of this creature were beyond...I couldn't imagine seeing a creature of that size today. The Megalodon is the extinct cousin of the Great White Shark, which of course still exists. Just seeing that mouth...we right then and there voted on having a song called "Megalodon."

    General CommentThe Fiji Mermaid was actually a sort of sideshow that Phineas Taylor Barnum used in his circus. It was supposed to be like a mummified qrotesque version of a regular mermaid that a doctor had caught and sold to Barnum for about thirteen dollars. In reality though, it was just a fish tail stitched onto a baby orangutang's head with some paper mache. Oh yeah, and Fiji is an island in the South Pacific.

    I have no idea what this song is about but the riff right after the breakdown is fucking killer.
