about

Animorphism is two albums in one. It's arranged sort of like a vinyl record with an electronic-rock-ish A-side and a hip-hop-ish B-side. The two sides are tied together by shared characters and a shared story.
Like Creatures of the Nether, practically everything to do with this release is symbolic in some way -- right down to the release date and the number of cents in the price!

about

Vertigo Fox Winnipeg, Manitoba

Vertigo Fox is a band made up of one mysterious, probably catlike creature.
Consistently tired of the general wish- fulfillment based love stories that many bands base their songs around, Vertigo Fox decided instead to write what he calls furry horror stories about the horrifying situation of turning into something furry.
Vertigo Fox enjoys long walks and hikes, though cats tell him they're prowls.

Track Name: Reality Slash
You don't know what it is you see
I may look small to you but I'm so much stronger
You're so far gone you can't tell the difference
Between lies and what's true, comfort and reality
With my teeth like knives and my hidden claws
I could tear apart your fiction, show you what's real
But I don't know, I don't think you're really worth it
So I sit up... and watch
======================================================
======================================================
As you live your lives here
I sit and wait, sit and watch
I can make you wild
And somewhere on your planet
My claws, warping claws, itch
To show you what's alive
======================================================
======================================================
Divide your cells, divide and grow, divide, divide and conquer!
It's a cruel trick to play, I know, but I'm bored
Divide your cells, divide and grow, divide, divide and conquer!
You'll be worth it to show once I reweave your soul
Divide your cells, divide and grow, divide, divide and conquer!
You'll fall into deep sleep as your body gets rewritten
Divide your cells, divide and grow, divide, divide and conquer!
And you'll taste what's real, taste the cougar's power, when you wake tomorrow
======================================================
======================================================
As you live your lives here
I sit and wait, sit and watch
I can make you wild
And somewhere on your planet
My claws, warping claws, itch
To show you what's alive

As you live your lives here
I sit and wait, sit and watch
I could make you wild
Somewhere on your planet
My claws, claws of the cat, itch
To show you what's alive
======================================================
======================================================
Divide your cells, divide and grow, divide, divide and conquer!
It's a cruel trick to play, I know, but I'm bored
Divide your cells, divide and grow, divide, divide and conquer!
You'll be worth it to show once I reweave your soul
Divide your cells, divide and grow, divide, divide and conquer!
You'll fall into deep sleep as you metamorphosize
Divide your cells, divide and grow, divide, divide and conquer!
And you'll taste what's real, taste the tiger's soul, when you wake tomorrow
======================================================
======================================================
As you live your lives here
I sit and wait, sit and watch
I can make you wild
And somewhere on your planet
My claws, warping claws, itch

As you live your lives here
I sit and wait, sit and watch
I can make you wild
And somewhere on your planet
My claws, claws of the cat, itch
To show you what's alive

As you live your lives here
I sit and wait, sit and watch
I could make you wild
And somewhere on your planet
My claws, warping claws, itch
To show you what's alive

As you live your lives here
I sit and wait, sit and watch
I could make you wild
And somewhere on your planet
My claws, claws of the cat, itch
To show you what's alive

Track Name: Sandstorm
Golden sands strech to a distant horizon
broke by shadows
As a strong wind whips up the dust and the dirt
To blind the eye
I feel so small, I could swear I'm getting smaller
I'm naked in the dust and I don't know why
I feel so light I think the wind could carry me away
This place feels wrong, so what am I... becoming?
======================================================
======================================================
My soul is burning
In the sun, it beats down on me, mercilessly
The wind is strong and unrelenting, a terrifying
Highway through the sky
The power of the wild grips my body and soul
I don't know what happened, but suddenly
I'm a little jungle predator, lost in the desert
Why does the wind want me?
======================================================
======================================================
Souls combine into a shapeless mirage
With specks of starlight
The wind picks up, whips sand into my mouth
As I pant in the heat
I feel so light, as I sniff to find some kind of prey
I'm naked in the in the dust, and it swirls all around me
I feel so small as the sand blocks out all my vision
Though I can't really tell, I think I'm airborne
======================================================
======================================================
My soul is burning
In the sun, it beats down on me, mercilessly
The wind is strong and unrelenting, a terrifying
Highway through the sky
The power of the wild grips my body and soul
I don't know what happened, but suddenly
I'm a little jungle predator, lost in the desert
Why does the wind want me?

Track Name: Murder PI
We were so close one time
Professor and student, scientist and subject
You told me you were thrilled to learn from me
...
As far as I know, there was nothing standing between us
Until that day. When you changed into the thing I see now
I see you now
==============================================
==============================================
I baked you a cake out of your lies and your hate
And a pie with the frozen contempt in your eye
How could you go so wrong, knowing the right way?
But what's right to you? What are you?
==============================================
==============================================
We were something, once
And I felt alive in my work
Now I don't know if I should even continue
...
You found out my plan, how I will change the world
So I had to change you
You became a small yet majestic griffin and I thought we could still be together
...
But then you tried to fly away and warn the world
So I had to put you in this cage
==============================================
==============================================
I baked you a cake out of your biggest mistake
And a pie with the look of fear clouding your eyes
How could you go so wrong, knowing the right way?
What's wrong with you? Who are you now?
I baked you a cake out of your lies and your hate
And a pie with the frozen contempt in your eye
How could you go so wrong, knowing the right way?
But what's right to you? What are you?
==============================================
==============================================
This was meant to go on forever
Now I only envy your wings and your furred power
You told me you were thrilled to learn from me
But now... you won't even look me in the eye
==============================================
==============================================
I baked you a cake out of your biggest mistake
And a pie with the look of fear clouding your eyes
How could you go so wrong, knowing the right way?
What's wrong with you? Who are you now?
I baked you a cake out of your lies and your hate
And a pie with the frozen contempt in your eye
How could you go so wrong, knowing the right way?
But what's right to you? What are you?

Track Name: Run on Water
Little shadows flit across a moonlit forest lake
And at the bottom, an evil plan starts to take hold
I want to see and smell and feel the power of these starry skies
But I know there's a storm brewing upon this horizon
======================================================
Toungues of flame and spike-lined ground
Toppling the trees
From the smoke of the fire that you set
I'm speeding to the place where I know you will be
And I'll run on water
======================================================
I don't know if I can stop your schemes from taking over my world
But I'm not the sort to go down without trying to fight
I'm sure you would love to break me, but I've already changed
And I won't be broken, I won't be broken
======================================================
======================================================
======================================================
Toungues of flame and spike-lined ground
Toppling the trees
From the smoke of the fire that you set
I'm speeding to the place where I know you will be
And I'll run on water
for just a second, before I start to sink down to your lair
I'll run on water, and though I might drown, my paws will feel that strange sensation
To run on water, as the smoke from your fire grazes the tip of my tail
When I run on water, I'll hold on to that wonder, hold on to breath, hold on, hold on to life
======================================================
Toungues of flame and spike-lined ground
Toppling the trees
From the smoke of the fire that you set
I'm speeding to the place where I know you will be
And I'll run on water
Run on water
I'll run on water
Run on water
I'll run on water

Track Name: Scent of Rain
Down, into a world of swamps spread between
Little villages...
You know you can't go home anymore
But you want to know why
The rain falls into your drooping tail
Small rain drops, that pour
You wonder where this tail came from
Then, with a yelp, you know...
=========================================
=========================================
Pacing in the rain as it waters your soul
You stick your snout into the wind
You wonder what the wild has in store for you
When your soul is warped and your mind is new
=========================================
=========================================
Stuck, far from the world of civilization
Wild, in this naked form
You know you can't go home anymore
But stranded like this you can still survive
The rain falls, it feels like magma
Small rain drops, that pour
You can smell a wild carnivore
And you know, it's you...
=========================================
=========================================
Trotting through the rain that waters your soul
You stick your snout into the wind
You wonder what the wild has in store for you
When your scent is animal and your body's new
=========================================
=========================================

=========================================
=========================================
Pacing in the rain as it waters your soul
You stick your snout into the wind
You wonder what the wild's gonna do to you
When your soul is warped and your mind is new
Naked in the rain as it cleanses your soul
You stick your snout into the wind
You wonder what the wild has in store for you
When your mind is warped and your body is wild
=========================================
=========================================
Track Name: Feral Itch
I remember you from years ago
When life was still normal, when I was like you
Now I'm, like, a wild creature who yearns
To be a part of your world... again
When my belly's full of rabbit and deer
In a land that's covered in white
I want you to be with me, to be like me
So I'll follow you home through the snow
=====================================================
=====================================================
I'm all alone, and that's fine
Became a long-tailed lynx, a talking feline, my soul rewoven by the rain
I'm all alone, and I want you so bad
Though I know it's something I can't have, I want to make you like me
=====================================================
=====================================================
I remember when I saw you the first time
All those years ago when we were in school
You were so beautiful, and I heard, so kind
But I never had the guts to go near you
My belly's full of rabbit and deer
And my paws don't sink in the white
I find you by a westside arch
And I follow you home through the snow
Standing in the snow outside your domain
I mark the spot, but not with an X
You come out of your home with a weapon
I try to tell you to wait, but--
You grazed my leg, I'm bleeding for you
I call out from the snow
I call out to say...
=====================================================
=====================================================
I'm all alone, and that's fine
I became a long-tailed lynx, a talking feline, my soul rewoven by the rain
I'm all alone, and I want you so bad
Though I know it's something I can't have, I want to make you like me
I'm all alone, in the snow
Became a long-tailed lynx, a talking feline, my soul rewoven by the rain
I'm all alone, and I want you so bad
Though I know you're someone I can't have, I still wish you were like me

Track Name: Qalyyko
Staring down your soul you think you see
Something that wasn't there before
Your feelings are on fire and
Your mind is waiting for the beat
Burdens of knowledge take their toll
A transformation grips your soul
You look, you're something sharp-toothed and clawed
With powerful flanks and a fluffed tail -- wrong
But... something lurks here
Something evil -- something you fear
And you can see all of you, all you've ever been
Here we go, here we go, here we go, here we go
================================================
Time to fight, time to feed, time to grow!
================================================
In a world of shifts and betrayal
(Don't run!)
With a power inside
(Use it now!)
You've a bloodthirst
(Be the carnivore!)
A hunger in your soul
(It's feeding time!)
================================================
================================================
Don't run from the power within
Be the carnivore
Your hungry soul says it's feeding time
Be the carnivore
Burdens of knowledge and wierd transformations
Into furry meat-eaters with powerful shoulders
You've become something savage and wild
With a power and a hunger -- carnivorous bloodthirst
But... something lurks here
And it is very near
You can see everything that you'll ever be
And it's all... this creature
Here we go, here we go, here we go, here we go
================================================
Time to fight, time to feed, time to grow!
================================================
In a world of shifts and betrayal
(Don't run!)
With a power inside
(Use it now!)
You've a bloodthirst
(Be the carnivore!)
A hunger in your soul
(It's feeding time!)
================================================
================================================
Don't run from the power within
Be the carnivore
Your hungry soul says it's feeding time
Be the carnivore
Don't run from the power within
Be the carnivore
Your hungry soul says it's feeding time
Be the carnivore
...
Look into your soul...
