Within the Belly of the Whale

from by Phantom Tails



Only a crack in the sky
It was only a trick of the eye
it was a darkened street
where I was struck by lightning
or just the holy ghost
well with no will or forsight
I was compelled forth
to the mouth of the river
where I dived right in
got swept off with the current

Well I was swallowed up

I was a messenger
it was bestowed upon me
I was a vehicle
for some demon's scheme
right there at the bottom
there submerged in the deep
within the belly of a whale
I will drown while it sleeps

Well I was swallowed up


from Sounds of the Hunchback Whale, track released July 6, 2010
