Blitzkid–Genus Unknown

Five-Cellars-Below32

Penetrate the town that’s slumbering
With luminescence lights
And skylines that are wavering
Metallic whine, amidst the pines
November’s falling and the fall is bringing something with it
A solid ray of undiluted light
Captures something in the glare of terrifying eyes
Try to flee, escape this stagnant scene
Look above, try to run now, but it’s following
That night, that ride, those wings, those eyes
That sound I hear, it can’t be human
Genus Unknown, from an ancient time
Furl your wings and take to your flight, it’s your night
The traffic streams across the silver bridge
Happy faces view the fog up on the eastern ridge
Something gives, the beams collapse
A darkened figure on the shore below completes its task
The traffic streams across the silver bridge
Happy faces view the fog up on the eastern ridge
Something gives, the beams collapse
A darkened figure completes its task
That night, that ride, those wings, those eyes
That sound I hear, it can’t be human
Genus Unknown, from an ancient time
Furl your wings and take to your flight, it’s your night
With no detection
I’ve heard some say it didn’t happen
That there wasn’t nothing rapping
On the storm doors or across the boards along the porch
But despite these claims I’ve seen it on the face
Of every living witness there is no doubt that he came
That night, that ride, those wings, those eyes
That sound I hear, it can’t be human
Genus unknown, from an ancient time
Furl your wings and take to your flight, it’s your night
The ghosts of West Virginia
They are calling me home
Those sweet, clutching mountains hide
The genus unknown, so alone
