"Architeuthis" lyrics - TOURNIQUET


There is a beast that does exist
Not just a myth
The facts persist
Known from the dead
That washed ashore
From modern graphs
To old folklore
And yet one never seen alive
Though scientists and divers strive

Show yourself to us

(Among the largest on the planet
The giant squid, the Architeuthis
How can this massive creature)
Escape the hordes of searching eyes?
Escape the wisdom of the wise?
Escape the sonar, the bathyscaphe?
Returns with countless plotted graphs?

Show your self to us

I know a God I've never seen
Not nearly just a wishful dream
Alive but not for us to see
But living in the hearts of men
So great is his love for us
Yet many seem to look in vain
If you will set aside your pride
Your arrogance facade
Then you can enter into grace

Show yourself to us
Let us gaze at your haunting frame
We know you're real
No longer conceal
What bloated corpses already reveal

(The last of the giant living mysteries)

Show yourself to us
