about

Midnight Sea is an album compiling the Fiberoctopus songs recorded in 2010. It's sort of a concept album, with the songs arranged to roughly tell the story of an underwater dreamscape adventure. Basically, there's the delving in (songs 1 and 2), accepting the change and letting go (3 and 4), discovering (5 and 6), realization setting in (7 and 8), confrontation (9 and 10), and the aftermath (11 and 12). You can fill in the details! The album is designed to be listened to with big headphones in the dark whilst picturing an open sea at night.

Track Name: Ain't Gonna Sit This One Out
here we go
down into the ocean
i can feel it grow
alive as it surrounds me
what you'll never know
has somehow just now found me
sleeping in the tide
creeping thru my eyes

i ain't gonna sit this one
i ain't gonna sit this one out
i ain't gonna sit this one
i ain't gonna sit
yeah, i got a sickness but i ain't gonna sit this one out

finally here
devised before the ages
we can feel it near
everyone would hate us
if they couldn't hear
the sounds in which we're bathing
the singing of the sea
the song to set us free

if we could die
right here at this moment
i'm sure it'd be fine
man has never known a more desirable time
time to let it go
sinking in the depths
fuck everything we've left
Track Name: There's Nothing Left For You
how can i be on your side, if you won't be on mine?
how can we meet up in heaven, if you don't wanna die?
there's nothing left to prove
there's nothing left to lose
there's nothing.. nothing left for you

you never wanna die
you never wanna die

how can i be on your side, if you won't be on mine?
how can we meet up in heaven, if you're afraid to fly?
there's nothing left to prove
there's nothing left to lose
there's nothing.. nothing left for you
Track Name: The Rags and a Cinnamon Roll
you got the rags and a cinnamon roll
what's on your back and the lies that you told
you're gonna lack, decrepit and old
but you can snack and you'll never be cold
Track Name: The Night We Went to Heaven and Returned Just Before Dawn
we went to heaven and we had some bills to pay
and then we paid them off and it was all ok
and then we drowned and the angels filled up our lungs
and then we found a little piece of us in everyone
and we saw the light, we tried to hold it close
but we had our fingers tied, slipped out beneath our nose
when we came to all that we believed had come and gone
we made our way to school in the moment dark became the dawn
Track Name: Secrets Forever
we swim in pools of dead witches
just like our forefathers did
but where they failed and spilled all their secrets
we're keeping them hidden

and i don't care if you're lonely
you told me your sosh, i got it right here
for just a few bucks you could own me
but don't ask for my thoughts 'cause i'll never tell

secrets forever and we never lie
with every blink we sink it deeper inside
secrets forever and we never lie
ten times the secrets than stars in the sky

sometimes i forget to blink
but i never forget all the secrets i keep
i could bury a box right under your feet
and you still wouldn't find it if you dug for a week
Track Name: Arizona Sawdust
when i said i wanted out
i didn't mean right now
when i said i wanted out
i meant at some point
Track Name: Tender Resources
i wanna fight you back
but my muscles are weaker
and all of the people always eat up all of your crap
and they take your side, eagerly take you side
[etc]
Track Name: Center of the Sea
you're right here with me
in the center of the sea
it's midnight now
and it'll always be
Track Name: Coffin Like a Whale
i ride your coffin like a whale
beneath these seven seas that you and me used to sail
underneath these unforgiving waves
below the surface they can't hurt us
now we're safe
and i will carry on
until your body's gone
until you decompose
into just teeth and bones

and that switch is always on
that switch is always on

i tried to take your words to heart
and now they're echoing from canyons in the dark
taking the bits i remember
and trying to tape 'em together
and hang 'em up on my wall
before i forget them all

and that switch is always on
that switch is always on
that switch is always on
that switch is always...
