I had already seen Black Ships ate the sky I was sweet sixteen The fences folded And the trees surrounded Black Ships in the sky Devouring the clouds And the thought came to me Just sweet sixteen and full of night: Who will deliver me from myself? Who will deliver me from myself? Who will deliver me from myself? Who will deliver me from myself? And I looked up at the sleeping lion Black Ships ate the sky Colours untold Kissing my eyes To unmake myself And to be unborn To be unborn And not to see Black Ships in the sky With their cypress night Following in the wake Of the churning rudders Of B. .

Black Ships Were Sinking" drums up lashing typhoons of metal filaments, gibbering cellos, and cybernetic locust. Black Ships Ate the Sky" is probably Tibet's most savage song since the early 1990s, a disconcerting concentration of hemorrhaging drums and lo-fi thrash. But these brash interludes hardly detract from the general sensation of suspension and cessation. In fact, Tibet's finest achievement is compiling mournful songs into an album with obvious momentum and tension.
