Invisibility (Telemachus)

Invisibility (Telemachus) by FathersOfWesternThoughtJJ

Lyrics

I am the boy
That can enjoy
Invisibility

Chrysostomos!
Omphalos!

I am the boy
That can enjoy
Invisibility

Chrysostomos!
Omphalos!

Invisibility

I am the boy
That can enjoy
Invisibility

Nightmares (Nestor)

Nightmares (Nestor) by FathersOfWesternThoughtJJ

Lyrics

You were not
Meant to be
Doing things
Like teaching me,

I can teach you things.

Thoughts of thoughts
Form of forms
Heading into
Heaving storms,

Nightmares do kick back.

If you try
You could fail
Be a squashed
Boneless snail,

You should learn more things.

Hollow shells
Follow me
Daughters of
Memory,

Nightmares do kick back.

Piss (Proteus)
