about

By the end of 2013 I was exhausted. It had seemed like the year had been nothing more than a series of events to be survived – a flood, hospital visits, death – as if my own personal God of destruction was intent on crushing me to smithereens. The Black Bison is the personification of this God.

lyrics

I see my God as he rises from the ashes and the dirt –
Baleful and full of hate!
I see my God and his horns are full of promised hurt,
His eyes are burning coals.
No herd of mountains has half this force
To shatter your dreams and strip you of your hope.

And I am trampled underhoof by the weight of this year,
My body and soul are broken down in the wake of the year.

Juggernaut of flesh
Massive flanks drip pitch,
And he comes like Death
And he comes like Death.
Black Bison, Black Bison, Black Bison swallows me!
Black Bison, Black Bison, Black Bison swallows me!

I see my God as he floods the plains of destiny
With the bile of intent.
I see my God and his hooves are stained with mortal men,
Malice hangs in the fog of his breath.
No lunar eclipse is half this dark –
It crushes your will and seeps into your heart.

And I am ground down to grist by the stone of this year,
I’m shredded and then I’m scattered wide in the storm of the year.

Juggernaut of flesh
Massive flanks drip pitch,
And he comes like Death
And he comes like Death.
Black Bison, Black Bison, Black Bison swallows me!
Black Bison, Black Bison, Black Bison swallows me!

I see my God
And his eyes have no mercy:
My life is not sacred
And I am not immortal
And I am not immortal.
