A rough, early cut of our newest single. Basilisk is the second track from our forthcoming album, "Flora's Lexicon"
All profits from the sale of this track will go directly into producing the album (we're almost done tracking as of July 2014); anything you can afford is greatly appreciated!!



I would rather see a dragon, basilisk
Both less poisonous
You slither underneath my wall
All I need is one look

I hate/love you

I would rather see a scorpion, your maidens
Much less venomous
Sprigs in their hair
All I need is one to turn you

I love/hate you
I hate the way you

Breathe in, the way you breathe out
The way you pick me when I wear
Sprigs in my hair

All I need is one, all I need...

I love/hate/love/hate/love the way you

Breathe fire, the way you burn me
The way your tongue splits in two
When you kiss me I can see
Only one of you

You care when I wear
Sprigs in my hair

I hate/love love/love you

I love the way you
Slither under my wall

All I need is to be
Without you, with you
