Default Is Billy A Genius?

How do you remember all the lyrics to this song?

Before you go all contrarian on me, just think about having to play the song and then playing another 15+ in the set. This was before the Billy iPad!

I've faced the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
Appease you
The wind blows and I know
I can't go on, digging roses from you grave
To linger on, beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep
And whirlpools sleep, you'll find me
The coarse tide reflects sky
And the night mare rides on, and the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on
What I fear is lost here
The wind blows and I know
All you have to do is run away
And steal yourself from me
Become a mystery to gaze into
You're so cruel in all you do
But still I believe, I believe in you
So may you come with your own knives
You'll never take me alive
With all the force of what is true
Is there nothing I can do?
I can't go on, digging roses from you grave
To linger on, beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep
And whirlpools sleep, you'll find me
And the night mare rides on, and the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on
I've faced the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
To hold the flower I can't keep

That's a sweet song, with sweet lyrics.

Those days are gone, though.

this is more genius tho. also it gets repeated for like 20 minutes, man.

Ascend. A light skyward to the field rise claimant to freedom
Rise the erudite and penitent to sky and to send
To send - Retainer soalesced a vision boards the skybarge to freedom
Somnolescent rays emit now from the origin-known
And remember Lebanon - hreem veils to scenic frees the photonic dove
And descend - as ambulant propels up through anteveludian sky
To send - Onward to terminus triumphal flight sheds object form
Orbitainer eyes the absolute and freed - walk alone

Traverse Cheopian field
Rides out from red sun high above
Prevades the salient wind
Upward. From sun to cross the sky
Traverse Cheopian field
Rides out from red sun high above
Prevades the salient wind
Upward. From sun to cross the sky

To send - Enables lantern to orbsentinel and swan harks prevailer
Formate shrineite seize the litan rounds the unobscured code
To send - The mainderite candscent wills now merge with red orb of freedom
Somnolescent rays project forth from the origin-known
And remember Lebanon - hreem veils to seen - and raise the freedomward dove
And descend - as ambulant propels up through anteveludian sky
To send - Onward to terminus triumphal flight sheds object form
Orbitainer eyes the absolute and freed - walk alone

Traverse Cheopian field
Rides out from red sun high above
Prevades the salient wind
Upward. From sun to cross the sky
Traverse Cheopian field
Rides out from red sun high above
Prevades the salient wind
Upward. From sun to cross the sky

And return to mountain
Screen
Absorptions infinite rays

And a new day dawns - the swan rise - the field cranes - aperture sender
Fielded onto cohesion geometric altar reflects the new day
Approach the radiant screen and to cross upon the unmoved moor
And a new day dawns - the swan rise - the field cranes - aperture and fade away

Where is the seen of the liberite gained? Travel descender
Matters up adherence to the terminus screen - travel and to fade away
Approach remainder of a lightbound freedom - travel descender
And a new day dawns - the swan rise - the field cranes - aperture and fade away

Travels unto scene of a lifespan. Freedom. Travel descender
Matters bound adherent to its terminus screen - benedicts and grounds to day
Calls mendicant onto a lightspawn sender
And a new day dawns - the swan rise - the field cranes - aperture and fade away

Atones the windship - light to fieldscreen
Rise the erudite and penitent to sky and to send
To send - Retainer soalesced a vision boards the skybarge to freedom
Somnolescent rays emit now from the origin-known
And remember Lebanon - hreem veils to seen and frees the photonic dove
And descend - as ambulant propels up through anteveludian sky
To send - Onward to terminus triumphal flight sheds object form
Orbitainer eyes the absolute and freed - walk alone

Traverse Cheopian field
Rides out from red sun high above
Prevades the salient wind
Upward. From sun to cross the sky
Traverse Cheopian field to freedom
Rides out from red sun high above
Prevades the salient wind
Upward. From sun to cross the sky

I don't know why those are labeled "Dark Lyrics".

Sounds like Viking Quest mixed with religion and a pinch of I Can't Write

Default lets make up billy lyrics

in the end from which i've drowned
sudden sparrows then the sparks
beyond the doomed from which i've found
literary bullshit i don't know

magdelene from in my mind
wishing whispers out of time
this song doesn't make any sense
also i'm very stupid and out of touch
