  1. Arachne

From The Recordings Html

A response to the Greek myth of Arachne, a woman who was challenged by a goddess to a weaving contest, technically won, yet fundamentally lost when she was changed into a spider to weave forever more. A comment on the cost of brilliance.

Lyrics

Weaving, weaving strands of loneliness
Silken thread of spider longing
Gifts are wasted in our blinding
Hanging on the cord of commons

Cursed to spinning in endless cycles
Gods are crumbling within our psyches
Spin right out of your cage
Arachne’s song your shame

Fading, fading into nothing
Static rhymes and paint by numbers
Threads that lead and threads that blind us
Keep us pretty, mannered, and harmless

Cursed to spinning in endless cycles
Gods are crumbling within our psyches
Spin right out of your cage
Arachne’s song your shame

Anger of me you plunder
Warp and weft torn asunder
Ripped down to size
Silently I die

She came in threads of gold and thunder
All I had to do was lose my wonder
Webs I spin of truth and memory
For those brave enough to find me
