Track Name: More Armor
I fall down and out
Every time I climb the big white staircase
I need more armor to stop these strikes
so I can make it through the night

I step through and through
The days are adding up in perfect lines
I need a happening to bring them down
Onto the ground

I want first and second place
I want endless pools of grace
I need more armor
I need more armor

chopping grating sounds
emanate from a big black box
I need more hi-cut to bring this down
But I still want it loud

It's falling faster now
That atlas has shrugged his shoulders
He saw a baby
Now his world is on the ground

Rolling seas of green
Turning over and over
Until the King breaks from the water
On four foaming legs

His son will bring them down
And his life will be laid down
So he needs more armor
He needs more armor

"Strike a pact with me, swear you will defend me
with all your heart, with words and strength of hand.
For there is a man I will enrage—I see it now—
a powerful man who lords it over all the Argives,
one the Achaeans must obey . . . A mighty king,
raging against an inferior, is too strong.
Even if he can swallow down his wrath today,
still he will nurse the burning in his chest
until, sooner or later, he sends it bursting forth."

from "The Iliad" (Book 1)
