original inspiration for the lyrical content taken from Pagjo - The Sculpter - on the - Live From Babylon album


Comfortably I bathed, lay steeping in deep naivety,
A slumber of sorts - sleeping, awoken by sonar deities,
Stirred from out my conscious, arose, my petals open,
A blossom where understanding grows,
The vision clear, scent was bitter sweet - and hidden under my very nose,
Artistry concealed, yield secrets, taker of many souls,
He walks alone, a shape shifter, picking apart the bones,
Re-structured over thunder and fire in loops percussion rolls,
Blinded by the sound i never heard for what it was,
In honesty couldn't care,
Provided it strikes a chord filled with substance, Emotion,
No factory manufactured eggs hatched, to be dispatched,
Yolks poisoned with evil purposes,
Oceans deep and sharks swim underside of the glassy surfaces,
The building blocks on which we stand, with stigma,
Condemned with urgency,
An art form crudely branded art, but only with some reluctancy,
The Craft,
Foundations proved solid so sample tests of time,
The well atop necropolis, a trove in which ancient treasures shine,
Their graves proclaimed robbed, it's natural wee recycle,
A scavenger, death eater, and cannibalise the living,
Ill pay tribute to the man who painted glorious colour,
From only a grey palate in a ballad of song,
Like an archaeologist removing artefacts from where they belong,
Re-worked into stone pillars and statues of copper Brawn,
Those defined by the tools of their trade'll work long and reap rewards,
If only in pride and satisfaction,
You can't put a price on a smile, or value recognition,
A worth while cause to touch others and master appreciation like the Sculptor, the sculptor.
