Maximillian Cvetko This is the best thing to have ever been released on my birthday. Moral Straightjacket continue to be my favourite band, and a large part of the reason I started my own. Favorite track: Blood Orange.

about

"And yet their labour was not all in vain; and though nowhere and in no work was their will and purpose wholly fulfilled... slowly nonetheless the Earth was fashioned and made firm."

J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Silmarillion"

“In death I'll be your rainbow
You will see me from time to time”

Into Another, “Laughing at Oblivion”

Track Name: Blue Wizards
I’m far afield
No steel, no shield
Fractured heart
Machines to make it start
I’m far from home
Unearthing hidden tomes
Afraid I’ll fail
Cast adrift without a sail

Let me lie in the shade
Of Peter and Paul

I sing an old song
And it’s been so long
Words won’t come to mind
Strands I cannot bind
If I can’t make it home
These words I’ll send:
“Let my song join, the one without end”

Let me lie in the shade
Of Peter and Paul

I sing an old song
And it’s been so long
Words won’t come to mind
Strength I cannot find
If I can’t make it home
These words I’ll send:
“Let my song join, the one without end”

Let me lie in the shade
Of Peter and Paul
Track Name: Evergreen
Evergreen
You seem forever green
Evergreen
Grow old by elder streams
Evergreen
I'll die young it seems
Evergreen
I must be a fleeting dream
Evergreen
Not so forever green
Evergreen
Pine boxes filled with leaves

The sun hardly ever sets on my empire of rest
The sun hardly ever sets

Evergreen
You seem forever green
Evergreen
Grow old by elder streams
Evergreen
I'll die young it seems
Evergreen
I must be a fleeting dream

The sun hardly ever sets on my empire of rest
The sun hardly ever sets

Evergreen
Track Name: Blood Orange
If I were to strip the peel from the orange
And soak up all of the blood
If I were to rip the vine from the soil
And bathe in all of the mud

When all that could’ve been yearns to escape
Just wait…

If I were to tear all the figs from the trees
And drown in a red summer flood
If I were to burn down all the forests
And suffocate as the smoke took my lungs

When all that could’ve been yearns to escape
Just wait, dream to wait again

I’ll be your rainbow
(When the curtain falls)
I’ll be your rainbow
(In a patient place)
I’ll be your rainbow
(When the clouds break)
I’ll be your rainbow
(When the heavens quake)
I’ll be your rainbow

When all that could’ve been yearns to escape
Just wait, dream to wait again

Dog chases tail
Cuts a circle in patchy grass
Avalanche falls
Endlessly into crevasse
Dog chases tail
Cuts a circle in dying grass
Avalanche falls
Endlessly into crevasse

I’ll be your rainbow
(When the curtain falls)
I’ll be your rainbow

When all that could’ve been yearns to escape
Just wait…

(When the clouds break)
I’ll be your rainbow
(When the heavens quake)
I’ll be your rainbow

When all that could’ve been yearns to escape
Just wait, dream to wait again
