Persistence 06:23
You open up my vein and travel inside I’ll show you what I’ve lived and where I’ve died You the choose the route the same place it leads In case you’d like to know you’ll never leave This syrup has become my brother in quest And the relief I feel is a bit too smooth Insight will guide you through the wreckage you see To the level which I’ve lived in a spectrum that never bleeds Persistence: the god of the atheist You open up my vein and travel inside I’ll show you what I’ve lived and where I’ve died And if you think you’ll ever leave I’ll tell you right now it’s not up to me

Can't Serve 05:45
Hear those people talk They talk about things you’ll never want Hear those people talk They are those things you’ll never want Six foot tall through a two foot door Six foot tall through a two foot door Six foot tall through a two foot door you say… I don’t know what you want But I know what I can’t serve

Instead of going down from the top to the bottom Retrace your steps beginnings from an end Let these eyes re-grow so that I may see A new form a green leaves from beginning to the end From the bottom to the top From the left to the right From the start to the end I’ll never blink again From the bottom to the top From the left to the right From the start to the end I’ll never sleep again Nourished to a place collecting new words Speaking to a friend believing in an end Neverending drive lulled security The ticking of our time from the left to the right

Feeling through the madness Not innocence or prowess Certain lights surround me The one’s I’ve always known You the little one keep by my side Tonight I live at the mercy of the tide You run around in your black coat The white one covers your other half Cooperative nourishment Untold agreements What you must feel now Oh out in the world it all gone away Oh out in the world I feel the same Oh your claws they hide my truth Oh your presence regains my youth Forage and adapt Show me how it’s done The instinct of adaptation has passed me by Grip of annunciation riddles my mind Our first journey won’t be too long

Slate 05:49
I have cleaned the old chalk That held so much weight Regained what I had lost Back to a clean slate There’s someone out there Chalk in hand Scribble things unknown And augment my time You are rare Through forested travels You are rare Waiting to be unraveled You are rare Something in the distance You are rare Leary of persistence Sweet warmth and deep confusion Resonate within your name Waiting and slipping Further behind my regiment Step forward again To what end

Emerged from the south Began the gears of fixation Took three days to carve into place Took one to anchor my heart Simple tones and vibrations The structures of who we are Explain without concern You’ll never be too far Make dreams to attain Uncover what I’ll be Instead of going home Make it here with me

Glass Empire 05:39
Brick by brick Breaking mirrors Shattered spines Sinking beneath Your glass empire falls in flames The bay children granted flame Swimming towards icons With skin of ink With hands of peace Still they lay screeching Throwing metal and bones Deceit was born

Winter solstice is my… Winter solstice is my… Winter solstice is my… Winter solstice is my love Winter solstice is my light Winter solstice is my psilocybin Creeping through the night Winter solstice brings out time Winter solstice I rely Winter solstice is my woman When others choose to lie Winter solstice blanks our minds Winter solstice keeps us blind When we close our eyes and Open for the cold Winter solstice hides this crime Winter solstice shows new lines Winter solstice does not dwell Where man-made roots align Breathing in break the isolation From the days of old Just you and I to protect The world they stole from thee
9.
Woke up in the rain and now the box is soaked Hawk drained into back and throat My eyes they sting My ears begin to ring Ants have left the hill Predicted oh so wrong Evening our home… Evening our home… Evening our home… Evening our home… Through the tickling pane Rotation brings the rain Dreams they bring the rain Licking on my growth the symbol of the era Brief but wise a gift for our labors But now the owl returns Augment with new wisdom Reunion in this cave Owls bring the rain

Adaptation 04:49
This is who I am This is who I am And if so sure of what that is Naïve I have become Curled in a drum My body believes in me My body will take the heat Until the day it proves me wrong Own the pain of change We own the pain of change Own the pain of change Own the pain of change Own the pain of change Conscious the rolling routine Damage unknown to me Until the day I lose my health My body belongs to me This body belongs to me My body believes in me My body will take the heat Until the day it proves me wrong Own the pain of change We own the pain of change

about

Noctooa Berkeley, California

Noctooa began as an inevitable collaboration between long time friends Sammy Fielding and Jorge Gallo. Clad in black robes, adorned in owl insignia, the duo set out to propagate their own brand of dark neo-folk music, aptly self-proclaimed "Cave Wave". Deep droning vocals, spacious guitars, thunderous drums, and weeping strings... ... more
