(Curse Of) The Horse Latitudes Pt. II by A Girl A Gun A Ghost
Dirty doves drink from golden chalices, discuss the state of things.

The morning hails, wipe the charcoal from sleeping eyes!
We must unfurl the sails!
The whitest wing hears lovely things…
He’ll be seduced by the Sirens’ wails.
It’s like a shipwreck with no crew left and the Captain’s floating by me, baby.
Saviors over my head, don’t leave me for dead! Take this message to my lady!

telling stories of forgotten friends on distant shores.
End their lives; end their pain,
For the ravens will reign,
