...And Daryil Answered, or: Hippie Music Volume 6 : Songs of Lies and Larceny

This is my sixth album, recorded from 2008-2010. As promised, this album is rather lighter than its morbid predecessor. The original theme was 60s psychedelia, which explains the first side of the album and the rather bizarre subtitle.
I have deliberately split it so that the first 'side' is based more upon 1960s and early 1970s instruments, and the second 'side' has more emphasis on 1980s and 1990s sounds.

All tracks were recorded on 8-track tape at 15ips except 4, 5, 7 & 10, which were recorded 16­track using two synced tape machines.

Track Name: Mr. Apocalypse
Mr. Apocalypse

There's a hidden little corner in the backstreets of my mind
Where my innocence was slaughtered and it isn't far behind
If I thought that I was you, and then you thought that you were me,
Then it wouldn't really matter who the real us would be. Would it...?

They never called me 'Mr. Apocalypse'

Candy for the wicked, a bullet for the good
They told me this was justice but I never understood
I didn't know that I'd be king when I was brought up as a farmer
Prophecies don't mean a thing when you aren't looking for an answer. Do they...?
Track Name: Fishsticks
Fishsticks

It doesn't matter what I say, 'cause no-one listens anyway
And if the world should end today, we'd still be talking about
Fishsticks, fishsticks, I don't need no fishsticks
I don't care, I'm not there
Fishsticks, fishsticks, I just hate fishsticks
I don't care, I don't care

And now I don't know what to say, as all my notes have blown away
But if the moon came out to play, then I'd just tell it I hate
Fishsticks, fishsticks,I just hate fishsticks
I don't care, I'm not there
Fishsticks, fishsticks, Oh Lord, I hate fishsticks
I don't care, I don't care

Fishsticks, fishsticks, fishy fishy fishsticks
I don't care, I'm not there
Fishsticks, fishsticks, Oh man, I hate fishsticks
I don't care, I don't care
Track Name: SAIA Blues
SAIA Blues

They brought me here with a blow on the head
They left me here in someone else's bed
There's no escape and there is no way out
My crazy roommate gave me such a clout
And I'm not the man I was before...

I'd give everything to know
If I'm a monster or a hero
Down in SAIA, where the demons go

They took my sword and my dignity
They tore the robe that Wildy gave to me
They probed my mind, they probed my brain
They told me that my favourite food was PAIN
And I just can't take it any more...

I'd give everything to know
If I'm a monster or a hero
Down in SAIA, where the demons go

I'm hanging out with other incubi
And I can kiss my former life goodbye
I'll outlive everyone I've ever known
One day I'll find that I am all alone
And there is no question any more

For I've finally come to know
I'm both a monster and a hero
Down in SAIA where the demons go
Track Name: The Last Days of the Brotherhood
Last Days of the Brotherhood

Lucian came to me and said
"There is an old man I want dead"
I killed him in his bed, in our Father's name

Lucian's rolling down the hill
Completely unconscious as he can't be killed
Set him on fire and he screams so shrill
In our Father's name

...It's all a game... It's not the same, just a game...

Lucian told me that they had to die
All of the Brethren and he told me why
One of the Brotherhood is a spy
In our Father's name

The Speaker came to me and said
"These are the people we want dead"
Where I walked the streets ran red
In our Father's name

Lucian told me that my crimes would stop
Half of my victims were the men on top
Now he had caught me I was for the chop
But it turned out my orders they were all mistakes
Someone had switched them for a bunch of fakes
Someone was playing for tremendous stakes

The Night Mother came to me and said
"These are the people I want dead"
I heard her whispers in my head
In our Father's name
Track Name: The Ballad of Daniel LaGrange
The Ballad of Daniel LaGrange

My name is Daniel and a spent my whole life
Hunting and destroying evil - that's what I do.
One day I saw that what I did was also evil
From a different point of view

Judge not, lest ye be judged
Things are not as simple as could be
Everything seems different now to me

The realisation that my life had been spent
poorly left my thoughts all tangled - left me confused
I sought a way to make amends and live my life more wisely
This I pursued

Things I'd done were never as they'd seem
Everything before was like a dream
Judge not, lest ye be judged

I thought that I could find the truth
But I all I found was twisted blasphemy
The hymns of praise I thought I'd sung
Were only songs of lies and larceny

My name is Daniel and I spent my whole life
Hunting and destroying evil - but I was wrong.
Since then I've found a little evil helps bring balance
To an over-righteous throng

Even good is bad if took too far
Neutral shades of grey is all we are
Judge not, lest ye be judged
Track Name: All Machine
All Machine

Joshua:
I remember my death, it wasn't good it wasn't fun
I remember the flash just as they fired the gun
They brought me back to life, the way I'd been...
...but all machine

Dorcan:
I remember my death, it wasn't good it wasn't fun
I remember the pain I felt when I was hung
They brought me back to life, just how I'd been...
...but all machine

Sethir:
I remember my death, it wasn't good it wasn't fun
I remember the crash and how my neck was wrung
They brought me back to life, just like a dream...
...I'm all machine
Track Name: The Incubus Song
The Incubus Song

Well, I can turn into the love you never had,
Or I can kill and take the place of your old dad
Your life is nothing more than a stain on the floor,
That's all you mean to me

Well, I can torture you at night inside your dreams,
And I can feed upon your terror and your screams
What evil to thee is just business for me,
That's all you need to know
Track Name: Professional Suicide
Professional Suicide

You won't believe me, but I have found a way
To come back tomorrow when I have died today
How it works I cannot say
But I get more business every day

Suicide, professional suicide
He'll kill himself to save your soul
Dies for money, that's his goal

Dying is something that anyone can do
If lying and cheating are not the goods for you
And if you think that it's not true
Then die for me, I'll die for you

Suicide, professional suicide
He'll kill himself to save your soul
Dies for money, that's his goal

Dying in your name, the only way to win
My death will redeem you of your whole life of sin
Why it works I cannot tell
My death will save your soul from Hell

Suicide, professional suicide
He'll kill himself to save your soul
Dies for money, that's his goal
Track Name: The Tome of Demonography
The Tome of Demonography

I tried to find, in my mind
Ways to learn, how to earn power untold

What's this? It cannot be!
Is it real, or is it me?
A whole world for us to see
The Tome of Demonography

I'll try tonight, Mystic Rite
Unseen Truth, Eternal Youth, set me free

What's this? It cannot be!
Is it real, or is it me?
A whole world for us to see
The Tome of Demonography

I didn't know I didn't think
I didn't guess that I'd be
Running for my life every step of the way
What you can't feel will never heal
Will never quite be cured
But lurks there in your soul
For the rest of your days.

What's this? It cannot be!
Is it real, or is it me?
A whole world for us to see
The Tome of Demonography
Track Name: ...And Daryil Answered.
...And Daryil Answered
(From the chronicles of Jakob Pettersohn)

- The Quest -

They say that in the caves of Izenkar, resides the "Fallen Star"
A tome that legend says holds secrets of our race
I'm one of few who knows the ancient tongue,
And though I am yet young
I journeyed forth to seek this long forgotten place

I am a child of Daryil – Clan of fear and mystery
I am a child of Daryil and I seek my destiny
I am a child of Daryil, and you can't take that from me

I hope to learn the ancient mystery, of our past history
Of how the 'Cubi came to roam our planet's face
It must hold secrets of such use to me, like immortality
That I'll transcend into a perfect state of grace

- The Book -

"Wings ruffling in the cool breeze, I approached a cavern that had been hollowed out as if into some sort of shrine. Ever-burning braziers lit the room and there, upon a pedestal suffused with light,
was the tome of the Fallen Star.
"If only my clan leader could see me now! Lord Daryil... I'd never met him, but they say he is as ancient and as wise as the hills, ruling his domain with a just, but firm hand. If the rumours of what this book contained were true, I might at last gain his respect."

"As my hand reached to take the book from its pedestal, I realised I was not alone."

- The Battle -

"And so, another incubus comes in search of the book of the Fallen Star! Surely you did not think you were the first! The book makes such tempting bait... it is almost too easy. I shall crush your
body, torment your soul and take your head-wings as a trophy!"

"My sword cast aside in the struggle, I lay helpless, pinned in the Demon's cruel embrace. As the last of my strength ebbed, I looked into the very core of my being, and I uttered a prayer. I prayed that
someone, anyone, Being, Creature or God... hear me now and bring salvation.
