The Ice King

about

Named by Kevin's daughter after a character from the cartoon Adventure Time. She heard the main riff and started singing about the Ice King so we took her inspiration and ran with it, crafting a song about a fictional character who is pissed off at climate change because his ice kingdom starts to melt away. The Ice King points out hypocrisy and overall devolution theory of mankind, how the further we get from nature the closer we get to self destruction.

lyrics

coming down the mountain
the ice king rages on

the reality TV of the 21st century
when money becomes the reason to be
ages come and go
but to suffocate ourselves in meltdown
is essentially geno-suicide

the hordes of the earth
ravage his castle with toxic fascination

his mountain is melting away
frozen caps slough into the sea
the ice king drowns
the hunger game is on

burning all the canyons
fail to see warning in the flames of our companions

operation prism
x keystroke warriors
become the ally or betray the lie
enter no where
where once you were basking in sun
now your body is snowed in deceit

ignore the singularity
progressing incessantly

his mountain is melting away
frozen caps slough into the sea
the ice king drowns
the hunger game is on
