about

Trapped in a perpendicular universe, two... things... must discover if they have what it takes to survive. And they must try not to eat the only people who could possibly understand them.
Unlike my proper "albums", on this release you can buy each of the tracks individually, although buying the whole release is a better deal ;).

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: Ouzelum
Sitting at the campfire
I think I see a fox hunting the woodland night
You told me you had something to show me
As the fire burns bright
A bizzare sensation ripples in my soul
As I try to listen I know something's taking hold
Of me, but I forget it all when you tell me
You're not really human, not even a mammal, you say
============================================
When the world falls
You will still be here
Reaching for the sun, but then you fall into the
Dark but like the phoenix you'll come back
============================================
You tell me you're in disguise
That you're really a mythical being
I don't believe you so you shed your human skin
You turn into an ouzelum bird
A bizzare sensation ripples in my soul
As I try to listen I know something's taking hold
Of me, and I'm too late to fight it
My body and my mind start to change
I've just turned into something furry and wild
A hunter with teeth, tail and unchanging spots
You stare at me, alarmed, this wasn't meant to happen
And then you take to the skies, I think
============================================
When the world falls
You will still be here
Reaching for the sun, but then you fall into the
Dark but like the phoenix you'll come back
When the blood falls
We will still be here
Reaching for the sun, and though we fall into the
Dark, as suns rise, we'll return
============================================
As I roam the dark woods, you find me
As the rain starts to fall you say you'll stay wild to teach me
When you're feeling like you'll never make it
Remember us, stalking prey together, hunting the night
============================================
============================================

Track Name: Smog
Searching
I'm looking for you far beneath me
Can't see
Anything under the shroud of these batt'ling armies
I'm lost on the wind, on the wing, and I can't land
Can't land here
Drifting high above seas of smog, I catch a glimpse below
Of a city on fire
==========================================
==========================================
Keep moving and don't look down
Searching so long I forgot what I'm looking for
On air so hot I've no choice but to soar
It doesn't really matter to me, anymore
==========================================
==========================================
Inside
My heart's pounding as if I just fell in a sinkhole
Deep down
Trying to hold on to what's left in my soul
I'm lost on the wind, on the wing, and I can't land
In this monstrous place
Adrift high above seas of smog where those monsters
Can just watch me fly

It doesn't really matter to me anymore
It doesn't really matter
It doesn't really matter to me anymore
It doesn't really matter
Looking for you, held aloft by putrid winds
I sense a presence
A monster in the smog catches me by the wing
Pulls me down, down...
==========================================
==========================================
Keep moving and don't look down
Searching so long I forgot what I'm looking for
On air so hot I've no choice but to soar
It doesn't really matter to me, anymore
Keep moving and don't look down
Searching so long I forgot what I'm looking for
Under smoke so hot I really hope I can still roar
It doesn't really matter to me, anymore

Track Name: Coiled
I'm lost, in a dark place
With a sense of coiled power, like a tiger
In the night, with a feeling like I just fell out of hyperspace
To an alien beach that's also familiar
Prowling on the rocks with the form and soul of
A diminutive big cat, and its hunger
Sneaking, pouncing on a crawling hawklike thing
Devouring its meat as its blood soaks my face-fur
================================================
================================================
In the starlight, as a fire grips my heart
I will not surrender my soul to the snow jungle
Though horrible things hunt me in dark and daylight
I'll endure with the strength of the creature I've just become
================================================
================================================
I'm lost, as if running through a misty woodland
Like a tiger, but smaller, I've a bloodthirsty feeling
The mists obscure the distance like the cloudy spots in my fur
Conceal me, in the rocks, my tail coiling
* * *
Those crawling hawks hunt me through this terrible forest
In this parallel world where I'm a nebulous panther
Those terrible things suck life from me in these spaces
And alien places that I don't know yet are familiar
Deeply ingrained into my mind are concepts
That are falling apart, undermined and subverted
These horrifying alien birds are not animals
They're people, they're sapient, and they might see reason
================================================
================================================
In the starlight, as the fire soaks my heart
I will not surrender my soul to the snow jungle
Though horrible things hunt me in dark and daylight
I'll endure with the strength of the creature I've just become
Though these bizarre hunters want to suck my life dry
I won't give anything up
The flames clench my being in their coiling power
Through a jungle of smoke-laden snowflakes, energy builds up
================================================
================================================
Flee, try to leave messages
For these people, these tigers of the sky
Trying to talk
* * *
How to I make them see what I am?
How do I find a language they understand?
As life-suckers hunt me through a beach that's somehow familiar
I just want to find a way home
================================================
================================================
In the starlight, as a fire grips my heart
I will not surrender my soul to the snow jungle
Though horrible things seek me in dark and daylight
I'll endure with the strength of the creature I've just become
Though these bizarre hunters want to suck my life dry
I won't give anything up
The flames clench my being in their coiling power
In the jungle of smoke-weighted snowflakes, energy builds up

Layzrbreth

Armies of machines
Take their power from the green ice
Their tails bleed fire
And their mouths spit glist'ning oil
My tail is held up high and
My claws do not slip on ice
I'm the spots in the snow
And I'm about to perish
==========================
==========================
I'm always running
Never safe
Always running
From their crimson laserbreath
I'm always running
Never stop
Always running
From their frickin' laserbreath
==========================
==========================
Weaponized machines
Mine their oil in the orange sand
Their claws tipped with diamond
And their mouths breathe laser light
My claws are unsheathed
My spots are the same shade as snow
Climbing, running from those mechs
Suffocating in the sun
==========================
==========================
I'm always running
Never safe
Always running
From their ice-blue laserbreath
I'm always running
Never stop
Always running
From their frickin' laserbreath
==========================
==========================
==========================
==========================
I'm always running
Never safe
Always running
From their ice-blue laserbreath
I'm always running
Never stop
Always running
From their frickin' laserbreath
