Description
Man Down For Love

I was a simpleton caught in a maelstrom
Tossed pell-mell like a rag doll
From the precipice of hell

I was a blithering fool
Throwing my flailing arms about
Trying to grasp why the whirling detritus
We buy and sell

Adrift in dust

Adrift in dust and sluice
The tether was cut loose
There is no static footing to call home
Oh well, oh well

Oh ancient oracle of Delphi
Where am I in relation to you

I was a naysayer
And privy to inconventionality
So wonder wonder wonder is my fun
Thunder is a clay enclave
Prometheus gave us fire
And I used it to
Perpetuate your desire in you

I was a simpleton caught in
An open box
Tossed pell-mell
I was a class defined
Like a rag doll
Into the things we
Precipice of hell
Encapsulate and call unkind
Throwing my flailing arms about
We are humanity
Whirling detritus
We are humanity
We buy and sell
We are humanity
We are humanity
Adrift in dust

This is track 11 from "adrift". "adrift" is the late December 2009 release by euphoreador. It continues the dark and ominous music that euphoreador has been doing but in uniquely distinct ways. “adrift” delves into the subjects of reproduction, fallibility, dna, hope and of course life. “adrift” has many melody lines played with a myriad of instruments and some of the songs are heavy riffing guitars to others that are of a middle Eastern flare. Come “adrift” with euphoreador.
