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: Departure
Parting gifts
To walk through mud and blood and dark
Why did you move me?
Why didn't you use me?
I breathe and my blood rusts
With the scent of my mettle
I may be far from feeble
But this place is evil

It's not natural
But I'm still alive
It's not natural
In a strange world where I gotta survive

I can smell another
And see that he knows me
A warning gift...
In a moonlit maze of deep green
Lurking in my own shadow,
Practising my roar
I breathe in my own bloodlust
My own shade

Move with caution and confidence
Ready to strike out in my own defense
Through echoes of this place that I've seen
Are all I've seen

It's not natural
But I'm still alive
It's not natural
In a strange world where I gotta survive
It's not natural
Flick of the tail, claws come out, I'm gonna live
It's not natural
Naked in a strange place where I gotta survive
