Wizard Meat

from by Toby Vok

/
  • Quite recently, or perhaps sometime soon (I can never recall exactly the correct directional flow of time, in the same way as just telling me to GO EAST leaves me confused as to whether I should turn left or right or some other direction betwext), I was/will be contracted by the government/a private contractor to investigate/instigate an anomaly upon the moon. This album tells/will tell the tale/told of this extraordinary event/apocalyptic horror, both in the dimension of musical sounds and, in an unauthorised account by an understanding bystander, the written word (with 11 original illustrations and a postcard).

    Yours in shock,

    Toby

lyrics

I slowly let my head rotate to take in all I saw
I stood on patterned carpet on an expanse of stone floor
if this castle was old, and it was old, I'm sure,
then why had I never seen it before?
from the central staircase, a figure descended
my explorations were swiftly apprehended
I stepped back, into shadow I blended
I suspected I was not about to be befriended
the wizard appeared, in a flowing cloak
he turned in my direction, and spoke
his voice was low and dry, a croak
vocal chords cracked from inhaling smoke

I can see you
step into the light
I can see you
step into the light

I stepped out warily at the wizard's suggestion
and prepared to ask him important questions
but there was no need, it was his clear intention
to tell me his plans without me needing to mention them

let me tell you
what I'm doing
let me tell you
what I'm doing
let me tell you
what I'm doing
let me tell you
why I'm here.
