about

A modern-day minotaur is kept trapped in the metaphorical labyrinth of Death Valley during the '60s. Though not inherently evil, he is exploited by the Manson family, who keep him sedated with psychedelics while sending in sacrificial victims. These poor souls are told they must either kill the minotaur or die by his hand; he in turn must defend himself against his interlocutors or perish. To add insult to injury, the minotaur is aware that he is Manson's own son: the product of a crazed, drug-fueled fornication with some unknown creature.

lyrics

lying awake cause Death Valley's in bloom
and i can't close my eyes
watching the stones sail across the sand
watching the days pass me by

got cold, got called to the throne
waited for stars to align
this labyrinth suits me, i call it my home
and watch for the flash of a knife

desert sky
gets me high
every night
i try to fix my head

down on the street watch the caravan pass
penitents, they cry
Babylon's burning, the sand turns to glass
rivers of blood turn to wine

so long, i've been hiding so long
hiding from wandering eyes
the sins of the father, the stain on the throne
the blasphemy of the divine
