The Black Stone
Kayo Dot Lyrics


The eye of Leviathan was swept from the sea
The crooked serpent in the deep of the night
We gather by the well to gather the rain
That fell from the eye of Leviathan
A pail of sweet water from the well of Leviathan
A baptism wrought in a ladle of rain

Gladly it fell from a sky and its stars
It fell from the night like a wraith in a rage
The prayer that journeyed from the abyss
To the lush of the earth
In the hush of the night
The stone from the sky
On the outskirts of town

All the stars will fall from the heavens
Into the ladle of gathered rain
To those who thirst: drink
There is water enough for all

I think this song's great. Why are people so jarred by briefly-unaccompanied growls? It took some getting-used to, but the spiraling-inward of growls traded by gradually slowing and quickening blastbeats (representing torrential rain in a really cool way) is pleasing to me

The best album of the world.

I don’t see why there are so many complaints about the growls not being good or lacking variety... this is an introduction piece to the album and the vocals are essentially spoken word done in a growl to give off a more demonic sound and as a sort of overture to the album I think this sets the perfect mood of insanity and just an overall haunting tone. I can see how it could sound dumb on its own out of context, or if you just overall aren’t much into the avant-garde style kayo dot tends to stick to, but give the second track a chance, this song really only works in the context of the rest of the massive two hour long concept album.
