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, he decided he'd much rather write about darker and stranger things.
Vertigo Fox enjoys long walks and hikes, though cats tell him they're prowls.

Track Name: Susurrate
Sensing life in a verdant void
It's dark down here
I am starting to feel myself again
Inside
Chasing, darting quick after you
But I'm just a susurration among leaves
And I can feel this ferocity inside of me
All that energy, and yet, a serenity

I can't stand you
I could destroy you, but I won't
Humility doesn't mean you can use me
Wanna scare you, wanna taint you

I sense you moving in my dream
You haunt me
I think I feel the sunlight, but I shouldn't
The dawn's still a long, long way off
And I'm just a soft susurration
A whisper of wind in a cold place
I still feel this ferocity inside of me
Power for a ghostly hunting spree
Moving fast, quick-witted as a mongoose
In naked animal form
I can feel this bloodthirst, this panther that's me, yeah
So fierce, but so calm

I can't stand you
I could destroy you, but I won't
Humility doesn't mean you're still better
Wanna scare you, gonna haunt you
I can't stand you
I could destroy you, but I won't
Humility doesn't mean you can use me
Wanna scare you, wanna taint you

I'm coming...
And just a susurration...
Track Name: The Nameless
Something inside me is coming out
Ferocious monster with my name
Elongate never see the same way

Why'd you let it out?
You don't know what I've got inside
Why'd you let it out?
You think you can trap this inside?
I don't need your tests, I don't need your places
I don't need your issues, I don't want your racists
I don't need your lies, I don't want your shit-
Your meat calls my name

Something inside's burning me away
Ferocious monster with my name
Naked tail never be the same me

It feels like me
Track Name: The Brink
Stranded on a cliffside, waiting within you
Wanting for ideas, needing a breakthrough
Snarling, springing, diving, am I flying?
Plunging straight down into the heart of you
I know I won't ever be the same
Trying to discover who you are
Alone on this quiet hunt, fighting this silent war
And then finding myself back at the start

I'm perched on the lip of a chasm
At the edge of two worlds
(dancing on the edge, dancing on the edge)
Clawing up one of the limbs of the tree of life
(I'm dancing on the edge, on the edge)

Stranded just past the tip of a dream
I'm feeling smaller... have I grown a tail?
Demon beside me, you I can see
Over a long snout and through cat eyes
Connecting, changing, and learning but never
Never able to really wrap my mind around
You can try to stop me but you won't ever
I'm diving into your heart, under my own fur

You sit in your peace as life passes by your door
I don't know that you're even really alive
(really a lie)

I'm perched on the lip of a chasm
At the edge of two worlds
(dancing on the edge, dancing on the edge)
Clawing up one of the limbs of the tree of life
(I'm dancing on the edge, on the edge)
Track Name: Detonate
Can you hear what the silence says?
And do you see the signs that you are and aren't yourself?
Can you feel something in you burning?
Burning for the shifting, the leaping, the slaying

So pounce!
Go and pounce!
Snap a spine, as silence again shrouds you
And when the vultures come you pounce on them too!

Can you see what's under this silence?
A longing for the jungle's rules
Can you feel something in your newly naked body
Burning for the detonation, for the devastation
Can you see?
Under the peace?
Feel it move inside of you?

Can you feel it?

So pounce!
Go and pounce!
Feel something in your furry form
Burning for the devastation
Snap a spine, as silence again shrouds you
And when the vultures come you pounce on them too!
Track Name: Broken Wings
Lost under the darkness with a broken wing
Trying to fly but I can't
Trying to see, but there's this burning light
Smell of burning oil unsettles
This feels like a metaphor for something unseen
I'm trapped in a machine under my dreams

Did I hear a sound? Something waiting?
A flaming orange predator, I'm in here burning
Burning bright in the white night light
The monster from my nightmares is out here haunting me

Lost away from home in a maze in the deep
I need new blood, fresh meat
Trapped away from the darkness and broken
Broken
Moving from the light, look for a piece of shadow
Have to get into the dark
Can't return until I finish something I don't know
Time to feed, time to grow

Did I hear a sound? Something waiting?
A flaming orange predator, I'm in here burning
Burning bright in the white night light
The monster from my nightmares is out here
Did I hear a sound? Something waiting?
A flaming orange predator, I'm in here burning
Burning bright in the white night light
The monster from my nightmares is out here haunting me
Track Name: Inverse Image
Something's different
You're an experiment, on the loose now
The rest of the world's upside down somehow
Unshakeable, unsinkable, and going wrong now

Left in the dark and you don't know why
Sleek silken surface, look into bright eyes
Devoured by the dark and you don't know why
Shimmering, shimmering

Falling higher
You just gotta keep moving forward now
The rest of the world's upside down somehow
But this creature doesn't care, he won't stop now
So don't let it consume you, don't let it define you
And don't let it break you
Your tail's lashing the wall, you're searching for a truth
Naked out in the cold, trying hard to break through

Define it, defy it, that's what you do
Naked out in the cold, you know you can break through
Beneath the surface but you can't be drowned
And the rest of the world's upside down

Left in the dark and you don't know why
Sleek silken surface, look into bright eyes
Devoured by the dark and you don't know why
Shimmering, shimmering
Track Name: Fearless
Don't let him see you here
Don't let him smell your fear

Who is it you're scared of, who gives you such fright?
Don't let him snuff out your fire
Be careful you show no traces of life
Mind your tail as you cross the corner

Don't let him see you here
Don't let him smell your fear
Don't let him taste you're near
Don't let him smell your fear
Track Name: Gossamer Soul
Illusions of confidence
Reasons, no inhibitions
Feel the power tingling up
from the tip of my tail
Slip between shadows
Prowling jungle shade

Call to me
Lost in what must be a dream
How else could it seem
That I'm being pulled free from reality

Deceptions of preference
Reasons
Save me from reality
I feel power tingling up
from the tip of my tail
Listening for the leaping
Of my little cobweb heart

Set me free
I won't let you see me
I feel chaos crawling, lancing
From the ends of my claws

I can do what you can't, and you say
That makes you better?
I see only your envy

Call to me
So I can choose between
Your green jealous eyes
Or my little cobweb soul
Track Name: Dawning
I think I'm falling
Through echoes of light into something new
And I think I'm sinking into the night
Only to rise at the end of you

I know I'm lost in the light, soaring
Farther and farther away from myself
In here I am all alone

I think I'm dawning
Through echoes of echoes and moonlight reflection
And I think I'm rising up in the night
Waiting for the time, waiting to end you
So why am I floating away?
Have I become something I was never meant to be?
In here I can feel a cold breeze over this flesh
And I can see things that I'm not supposed to see

I know I'm lost in the light, soaring
Farther and farther away from myself
But so alive
I know I'm lost in the night light, falling
Farther and farther away from myself
In here I am all alone

And I'm prowling naked, the feeling keeps coming
Waiting for you, at the ends of your world

I know I'm lost in the light, soaring
Farther and farther away from myself
But so alive
I know I'm lost in the night, soaring
Farther and farther away from myself
Have I disappeared?
I know I'm lost in the sunlight, falling
Farther and farther away from myself
But so alive
I know I'm lost in the night light, I'm soaring
Farther and farther away from myself
In here I am all alone
Track Name: Creature Of Nightmare
Feeling the pressure
I'm feeling the weight of this flight
You are the spider in my web
I can smell you in the jungle
You are the moon as the tides ebb
Is this really what you force me to be?

You are the key, you are the key to me
I still see you haunting my dreams
You held the key, you held the key to me
So why did you lock me in a cage?

I am your beast, I am your nightmare
As you're mine
I prowl the haunted halls of your castle
Mine to defy
I sense you in my jungle, wet and fervid
You are my moon as the tides ebb
I'm warped and twisted
You are the spider in my web

You are the key, you are the key to me
I still see you haunting my dreams
You held the key, you held the key to me
So why did you lock me in a cage?

Feeling the pressure
I'm feeling the weight of this flight
Underneath it all, inside you I'm waiting
Under a ton of rock, your nightmare awaits
And I can still sense you in me
I can still feel you

You are the key, you are the key to me
I still see you haunting my dreams
You held the key, you held the key to me
So why did you lock me in a cage?
You are the key, you are the key to me
I still see you haunting my dreams
You stole the key, you stole the key to me
You sucked me up and then you threw it away
Track Name: Clotpunk
I may be small but I don't care
So still you don't see me, barely a stir
But a ferocious heart pounds beneath this fur
Cthulhu not just to the caterpillars

So try to steal it I dare you
If you think I might let it go (not happening)
But don't you believe I would destroy you
Then lap up what's left while it's still in the throes...

Won't let it be taken from me
Won't let it out of my sight
x2

Might be insignificant, but you still can't take me on
Do you want me to be your predator?
I take no prisoners
I would devour your soul with a purr
If you would invade, if you were swarming
In a cold place where I was a warm thing
I'd take you all, save one
To return to your two-faced king

I will protect you from the swarm, and I'll keep you warm
I will stare them down
I am alive, I can thrive, and I won't let them take another one
Nothing will stop me now

Won't let it be taken from me
Won't let it out of my sight
x2

Nothing will stop me now
Track Name: Nevermore
Crazy beast
Looking for a place to call your own
Because now you hunt alone
The seeds of rumor have been sown
Hot, wet feast
They won't fight if they don't see you coming
Hanging inverted as if you might drop
Gnawing on something already cleaned off
A tingling in your very bones
Can they sense your hunger?

Breathe in
Hold
Breathe in
Step
Breathe in
Hold
Breathe in
RUN!!

When you go look, don't look too hard
Or you might find them
When you do, they won't ever stop

But if they don't see you coming, they won't have
Their object of revenge
Your tail's on edge, will you go look for your home?
Or will you reap the seeds that you've sown?
Naked beast, can they taste your fear?

Breathe in
Hold
Breathe in
Step
Breathe in
Hold
Breathe in
RUN!!

Blood pounding, hold still
Forever is feeding time
Track Name: Lightless
I've escaped
Or was I let out?
Lack of sound that's far from silence
I can't be held back by just blackness
So was it you?
What do you think holds me back?
Your life I can eat or borrow
And I'm clothed in shadow

There is no sight for you, my friend
In this place
But, can you still feel your bones crunch
Under my claws?

There is no light
I'm wrapped in darkness
There is no moon tonight
There are no stars
There is no light
And I wear just darkness
Yesss
Need nothing else

There is no sight for you, my friend
In this place
But, can you still feel your bones crunch
Under my claws?
There is no sight for you, my friend
In this place
But, can you still see your soul snap
Under my paws?
Track Name: Terror In 7/8
Savage goddess sees you
And she's ready to kill, to kill
You'd better be good to climb, climb!

So can you get away?

Out of her reach
With a long, long way down
When she looks away, you could jump
You might, you might make it
And you just might still be strong enough to get away

So can you get away?
The she-demon won't let you go...
