Ode 02:16
A thousand years he slumbered Sealed within he lived through myth The glyphs are quickly fading The horns will blow he'll live once more Oh the Giant King Will Rise My queen you must believe me Send word to all your men Kholesh will fall, the dead will crawl Oh gods don't let them in Oh the Giant King Will Rise

Drown 03:59
Sunday night, here I am Coherently wasted again, my friend Tuesday night, nothing’s changed On the edge of a great mental breakdown, my friend I can’t think straight anymore I can’t think the same as I once used to Used to believe in evil, no place for an errant good, my dear You’re too good, my dear Once had pride so deep inside where nobody could break me down I’m breaking down, my dear Don’t let me drown, my dear I can’t think straight anymore I can’t think the same as I once used to

Hark 01:48
Listen close, gather round It's the very last night Hold your children all the tighter Make amends with all the neghbors that you've wronged He died, He's risen, He's come again So rest you weary heads and save your prayers the gods are all but dead

Float 03:23
Sunday night, still all alone again my love Yeah I'm breaking, slowly wasting Headed north, fighting for control I can't take it, I'm escaping I'm leaving town How can I explain when we're a thousand miles apart? I'm skipping out Nobody's listening and you're never around I can't think straight anymore
6.
Sleep/Dream 02:48
Oh, Queen of Dreams Why do you haunt my sleep? Please wake me from this dream, oh queen Oh King of Sleep, Why do you haunt my dreams, Please wake me from this sleep, oh king
7.
Wonder 01:48
When you needed a friend Someone to depend on Someone to confide in When you needed me most, you should've known I'm nothing I'm no one worth knowing Just helpless and selfish And sorry for myself Remember that day they took you away Remember that feeling so helpless still helpless And sorry for myself You should've known I'm nothing I'm no one worth knowing Just helpless and selfish And sorry for myself

Smile 03:56
(John Shakespeare) On the streets of downtown Burlington, Vermont I saw a homeless man I tried my very hardest not to look "Look, listen, hey, buddy" I managed to say When he pulled out a sign I shit you not it read "just fucking smile" (John E. Funk) If you have access to clean water and a meal inside your belly If you can shower every week or so or even if you're smelly If you've never had to wonder if you'll make it through the winter If you've never gone to war and seen your buddy's helmet splinter Fucking smile (Cliff Notez) So when you're angry at the man for yelling at you through the TV screen Angry at your friends for typing at you through computer screens Telling you just what to think Telling you what not to think No one's ever listening (Forte Pops) Don't ever let them think for you Or think that you can't straight Don't ever let them break you down Just go and write a song about the Giant King or something I don't know, just fucking smile (Oompa) Don't ever let them taint your mind Or look to them for safety In the end you'll surely drown Just go and write a song about the Giant King or something I don't know, just fucking smile (All) Oh the Giant King will rise

about

1000 years ago existed an evil force bent on destroying the human race. Through divine intervention and the heroes of old, the evil was banished to eternal slumber. The seals imprisoning this foul beast begin to weaken. An introspective tale of loneliness, mental illness, and depression; the Giant King will rise once more.
