    I got Coffins on Io in the mail yesterday and I'm digging it so far, but there's something that bugs me — in the lyric book that comes in the CD case there's an entry for every song except Offramp Cycle, Pattern 22. Does anyone know why this is? The lyrics aren't on the internet yet so I find this very annoying

    I never read the lyric booklets, so I don't give a flying fuck.

    I hope that helps.

    it's because Offramp Cycle was written in Kobaian

    Same with Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongue. Jason Byron wrote the lyrics for all except Immortelle. There are no printed lyrics for Immortelle. I haven't gotten the record yet, so I don't know who is credited with the lyrics on Coffins.

    Ah, that makes sense then. Jason is credited with the lyrics, and all of them sound like stuff he would write except Offramp (based on what I can gather from listening)

    Yeah, like a concrete serpent with fangs fastened 'round the throat doesn't sound like something Byron would write.

    Is that what he's saying?

    This is why I need written lyrics

    I've listened to that song so many times. Best track on the album, hands down.

    The bass in particular is out of this world.

    Here are the actual lyrics:

    Offramp Cycle, Pattern 22

    Broken glass under a poison half-moon
    On some shattered highway that goes nowhere at all
    Wraps around its prey like a concrete serpent in the acid rain

    With fangs fastened around my throat
    I choke on the fumes as the world in a blur
    Falls away but leaves me clouded and hollow
    Blood on my hands, and a thing in the backseat
    That used to be human

    Flying on the highway, trying to outrun me
    Drained of thought, but the broken glass, it haunts me
    Glittering like gems or sparkling like evil rainfall
    That turns to steam in the heat
    Ugly, hot, and shaking
    With the thing in the backseat
    It seeps through the plastic shroud…
    As I push the needle faster and further

    Coronas around the judging eyes of streetlights
    Mad with thirst, almost enough to lap up iridescent rain
    Just a little further, but the pupils of night are diminishing
    Subtle
    By the time the smog sets in to eat away the morning
    I should be somewhere, praying that I’m dreaming
