lyrics

Clawing, rip at your face
Blind from the ice that has frozen your eyes
Suicidal
Pull out a gun
Ready to fire
Missed by a mile 'cause
Your hands are
Frozen, frozen by ice
Nothing but ice as far as you can see
But you see nothing
Already said
That you are blind
Blind from the ice that has
Froze your eyes
Frostbite blackens your limbs
Appendages frozen exposure to snow
Vasoconstriction
Damaging cells
Reducing the core
Temperature
It is cold
Freezing, it's minus below
Zero degrees, definition of freeze
Penetrating
Wind doesn't help
Wading through snow
You enter a cave to
Take respite
From the cold
And the ice

"Hear me traveller, these icy words
I come to you in a dream of song
I am queen of the frozen lands, Alizé
There in the distance, there lies the goal of your intent
Legend tells of a secret path, let me guide you
But danger lies beyond here in this cave
Garganega, Lord of Slugs, waits there.
Vanquish this hellion, till he's gone,
Or like this song your quest goes on,
And on and on and on and on,
And on and on and... on."

"Wake up my progeny
You cannot escape your destiny
Bury your pain deep inside
Alizé, she beckons..."

Waking up in the cave, your vision returns as your eyeballs thaw
Memory of distant voice is beckoning
Gathering strength as your body restores, you begin to explore
The precipice inside the cave, buried under the frozen snow

Creeping ahead you discover a corpse
A disfigured yet recently dead penguin
Searching the body you find a bag of salt
Victory it's time to open up your inventory
These frozen plains are a mystery
You store the salt and marcheth on

Burst
Eine mega burger bitter eine mega Garganega
Slithers forth and thirsty for blood
Eine mega burger bitter eine mega Garganega
Stench of death and oozing slime
Eine mega burger bitter eine mega Garganega
Demon Lord of the ice slugs fight
Eine mega burger bitter eine mega Garganega
Praise his sticky yet frozen slime

Well-placed hand of salt
Twin bane of gastropod
A fizzing mound of flesh
Thrashing through the cave
Begins to dessicate
Garganega falls

Antartarctica
Antartarctica
A protracted narrative
Time is relative
The length is superlative
Antartarctica

"Here, come forth brave monk,
Through the crystal prism,
Before he is revived.
Be seated upon the ice bench.
Our paths are entwined
As here I am imprisoned
Within this frozen cage,
An unwilling slave
By he that stands in your way.
And though Garganega is damaged,
He will return.
You must forge the Sodium Blade
From purest salt.
You must face him.
You must prevail."

With ice hammer and minimal training or experience,
Weeks pass until finally the cold forging is complete
Weird salty sword in hand, you leave Alizé's cold embrace
To face again, once again, Garganega

Raging out from the compost
The demon is here
The demon is fear
Regenerated by decaying waste
His freezing gaze is cold
A newly constructed igloo shell
And spraying ice cold slug milk forth
His slimy maw begins it's discourse
His gross vociferation is a new-found frozen hell

"I see icey death awaits you
I watch the light leave your eyes
Prepare to meet your destiny
Prepare yourself to die."

With a final swing of your mighty salt sword, you level the demon
Stepping over the dissolving cadaver of Garganega, sliding in his remains
There, there you see it, just beyond your sight
After all endured, all peril faced

There it is
