about

Captain Vulpine! Portland, Oregon

Culled from the muzzard infested lands of inbetween, Captain Vulpine wanders the ever-dying mortal world in search of nothing at all. Shortly after discovering whiskey, all was lost- and the disastrous memoirs of lands and minds long since gone now linger in these culminations of manifested misery and madness. ... more

Track Name: Seth and Dex (Dirge for a Dead World)
There were two brothers
Betrothed to earth

Rapscallion smothers
Upon the hearth

They brewed the tempest
Of depravity’s scorn

To pick the roses
For only the thorns

Come on Dex let’s do some work
Not just in shadows, in day we’ll lurk
We’ll be the first on masses minds
We are the glue, of lusty binds

Come on Seth, lets breed the fear
Let’s be the whisper in the ear
The one that sounds with chaos near
Impermanence looms;

We're here.

Seth and Dex make the world go round
Track Name: It's a Hard Tack Life
Me and my baby
Starin’ at the sea
Life is grand away from land
It’s the sailors life for me

The weather’s perfect
The wind in my hair
I got no worries, I’m in no hurry
And life is totally fair
.
.
.
Wrong.
.

Heave ho
Heave ho, heave ho
...Mates.

The work is tough
The food is shit
The yellow Jack’s raised
and the food is shit.
(The work is tough
The food is shit)

The yellow Jack’s raised but you aint that sick

The coffer’s empt’
The rum’s been spent
No land in sight
And the rum’s been spent
(The coffer’s empt’
The rum’s been spent)

No land in sight when there shoulda been

The deck aint swabbed
The hull aint caulked
The captain’s mad that the hull aint caulked
(The deck aint swabbed
The hull aint caulked)

So get off yer ass and swab

Heave ho
Heave ho

You hang the jib
You break a rib
You can’t slow down when you break a rib
(We hang the jib
We break a rib)

And then you get back to work

You mutiny
You end up dead
You get marooned and you end up dead
(We mutiny
We end up dead)

Mark my words or lose your head

The Kraken looms
You sense the doom
You keep on working, you bilge rat croons

The Kraken looms
We hate this git
But we keep on working and the food is shit

Heave ho, heave ho
Track Name: Carapace Demolition
The morning’s grey
It’s quiet still
I think I may
Be rather ill

I never pray
I never will
Life’s a game
I’m losing still

I’m ever falling down
There’s no escape I found
They’ll put me in the ground
How ‘bout fresh dug mound

I think I hear the sound
Of charging worms
Underneath this town
Coming up for me
I guess it’s just my time….

One last stroll
Death takes hold
I feel so cold
They say be bold

I’ll turn to mold
Or so I’m told
My belongings sold
I’m not so old

Go in peace?
But I’m all pieces
Laid to rest?
Surely you jest
Bless my soul?
A vacant gaping hole

Eternal unrest brought forth and christened in a manner perceived as being freed from all accounts and the debts and horrors containing the elements in the spectacular ball of constant misery commonly known as life and living, a spectacular misconception of the general state of communal misfortune being cursed with the five senses. Touch- to feel the cold skin of those who will forget. Scent- to smell the putrid airs of rotting carcass. Taste- to eat away the sugar coating topping the poisoned rancid chemical imbalance in the guise of love. Hear- to identify the constant stream of untruths spewing forth from the mouths of all. And sight, to witness the rape and slaughter of the world.

These things trouble me no more
In the falling down, My waning mind came back to me
Like a wilted fly in an old dead tree,
Flooding back, call the band, like a coal beneath the sand
Apparitionary pleasures are spectacularly grand
The Illusions from the church, and the meaning that they search
It keeps them dead while alive in their filth producing hive
Track Name: Ash Marmalade
Willows don't whip in the absence of wind
But that doesn't mean they don't want to
and Wind doesn't blow in the absence of air
So you're going to strangle yourself, and the willows will watch

Ash marmalade.

You garnish your life with ash marmalade.

You don't smoke for pleasure
You smoke for pain

You garnish your life
with ash marmalade

Put the knife in the liquid
Put the knife in the liquid, stir.

You garnish your life in ash marmalade.
Track Name: Captain Vulpine! and Sapient - The Mechanikraken Calamity
Hold fast
Ready the guns
The mechanikraken’s here

Clockwork and steel
The legend is real
And he demands your fear

The Baron von Tesla
Built him from scratch
Damned if he can’t hold grudge

This isn’t the first
It might be the worst
Ah! Ready the guns

Heave, ho, heave men heave

Absinthian visions
Could not conjure something worse

Our will, it will not be broken
Even in the throes
Of Mechanikraken

Automoton horror looms
Close now very soon
Here comes doom.

Powderkeg stacked
Grapeshot and naptha
Priming the breech
With maniacal laughter
Heave on the tackles
Hard 'gainst the 'wark
Necking back rum
As we wait in the dark

The sound fills the air
Of steel through wood, beware!

Its limbs rip through the hull
And it’s crushing skull after skull after skull
Track Name: The Three Loves of Malentine Gherr
Well the other day I was walking down the street
I saw a pretty young girl
She was just the prettiest thing
Her hair in little curls

So I walked right up to her
Said “how’d you like to see a show?”
She said “sorry mister, you’re rather off so no.”

So I chopped off her head and threw it in a bag,
Now it’s hanging on my wall oh gee!
And that’s why you never be mean to strangers
Don’t be mean to me!

The very next day down the very next street
An even prettier lady
I wonder if she’d go out with me
Well could be, maybe?

So I walked right up to her
Said “I’ve got something to show you”
She said “Mister get away from me,
I don’t even know you”

So I grabbed her by the throat and dragged her down
Then I nailed her to my basement wall
And that’s why you never be mean to strangers
Don’t be mean at all!

Well the very last time down the very same street
A quaint brunette surprise
She was as pretty as the devil in drag
A glimmer in her eyes

So I walked right up to her
I said “you wear that skin so pure”
“Couldn’t do better myself” I said
But I thought I had better make sure.

So I took her back to my place and you can guess the rest
Now I sing to these girls all day
A little ditty I wrote for them
And their lovely skin of grey

“Maybe rabies, they’ll eat you
Maybe scabies, they’ll come too
Maybe baby, I will make you love me.
It’s funny honey, how you scare
My little bunny, in my lair
Maybe baby, I will make you love me”
Track Name: Carny Lullaby
Silence little child
Dream of your father’s circus
The freaks are all there
We love you, we care
We’ll shield you from all the horror

All the real terrors
Are out In the big bad world
But in the big top
On tightropes we’ll walk
We'll pay them no mind

Silence little child
Dream of your father’s circus
The freaks are all there
We love you, we care
We’ll shield you from harm

All the real terrors
Are out In the big bad world
But in the big top
On tightropes we’ll walk
We'll pay them no mind
.

We travel by day
We travel by night
We set up the tents
For this is our plight
We sell all the tickets
Or we beckon the crickets
We’re carnies and this is our life
Track Name: Black Lies
Something about fire, and unintelligible chants from the underworld.
Track Name: Connubial Delinquents
Betwixt the effervescent delusions
Of the inimitable grandeur surrounding imaginative futures
Alternating in ungrounded palpable realities;
Potential sanities,
But unlikely.

a translucent semblance of sanity
begs the indifference of broken imaginative scenarios
for we’re just two
in billions of unnumbered fractions of soulless beings,
meaningless.
We’re just two
in billions of unnumbered fractions of soulless beings,
meaningless.

We fall in love.
We fall,
We fall,
We fall.

CV:
As I look into the sky where the buzzards fly
I wonder how long it’ll be before they peck my eyes out
This isn’t the first I’ve been disgusted by man
But you people are getting out of hand

Fake tits so big you don’t remember your toes
You thought it’d make you pretty so you cut off your nose
why don’t you just go row row your boat down the river of the misery you’ll always know

Listen to your doctor
And all those Hollywood tips
He’ll suck that fat right out of your ass
and inject it into your lips
Yes you have the option
You gotta look good on your date
And we can whiten your bones and accent the tones
but that’s at an additional rate
We’ll switch around your fingers, or swap ‘em right out with your toes
It’s the latest trend in high demand, and in the fashion world, everybody knows.

G

Does this dress make me look fat? yeah bitch,
Cause you motha fuckin’ fat, shit,
Now eat a dick,
Ha, Chew on a fuckin’ clit, like a dyke trick,
I’m so off the chain, I need my bike fixed,

You get a face lift, I make a bass riff,
You get a tummy tuck, I’m still fat as fuck,
You puke up all ya dinner, just to get thinner,
Just to get that fraternity boy dick in ya,

Twitter this shit,
hashtag it #ho

Put your business online so every body knows,
“I’m In a size 8!” -- That’s fuckin’ great,
Now send a booby pic, so I can masturbate

Listen to your doctor
And all those Hollywood tips
He’ll suck that fat right out of your ass
and inject it into your lips
Yes you have the option
You gotta look good on your date
And we can whiten your bones and accent the tones
but that’s at an additional rate
We’ll switch around your fingers, or swap ‘em right out with your toes
It’s the latest trend in high demand, and in the fashion world everybody knows.
Track Name: Rave Hospital
Everybodys sick
Eververybody’s sick
Everybodys sick and sickening

Hello my friends
welcome to the club
Of bloody messes
and things that glow
Check your brain at the door
Come and be my filthy whore

Rave hospital, everybodys here
The bandages and ravages
And pills and queers
Men in dresses
Ladies too
Everybody’s here
And everybody here wants you

Rave Hospital

Hello my friends
welcome to the place
Of daily horror
and all disgrace
take the pills, take them twice
When things get naughty
Won’t that be nice

Rave Hospital
