chosenunbread I have lived my life up until discovering this artist with a longing for the atmospheric tones of Carloman that I had no idea I felt. All of the songs on this album concatenate into a rich atmosphere, like you're in a vast and naturally lit medieval castle—at least, that's how I feel when I'm enthralled by the fey sounds of the many epic tales of Carloman II. Favorite track: L'Avant Garde.

I stayed in your court, and I see the world has changed Even though you claim things remain as they always were I see in your soul your protected heart of iron Dressed in blue a maiden, restrained and her eyes are cold And feel in your thoughts all your enemies in fire All of them afraid, they were made for your dreams alone I fought for your cause but I see that you have changed Even though you claim you remain as you always were You don't know, your soul is a life never ending You think you'll escape but you don't know Your name is a light never dying Your soul is a life never ending Your fate is a fate never shining You think you'll escape cause you don't know You think you'll escape when you're dying I fought for your cause, but I see the word has changed And if the word decays, so the days will begin to fade And then will we see what our memories reveal Bathed in light or no, we will know what the future holds You don't know, your soul is a life never ending You think you'll escape but you don't know Your name is a light never dying Your soul is a life never ending Your fate is a fate never shining You think you'll escape cause you don't know You think you'll escape when you're dying

Side by side, we shared the stage Our heads, held high, the crowd did rage But all the people came to see Him not me We both we born of twisted frame we wrenched our backs and screamed in pain But all the healers came to see Him not me We heard the word, we got in line We both ate the bread, we both drank the wine But all the preachers came to see Him not me But he, my shade, my sobriquet I see his face, when I hear my name And all the people tend to see, Him not But, oh, forever chained we'll be Him and me

I sink down between the shells in the ground Where no one's there to hear me Sigh, all night, because I know that I'll return With nothing left but time Wise men ride with pockets full of gold And no one dares to seize it Save my kind, with the sybil by our side It's all portended Please forgive me if I wander Down the road tonight If you'll permit me, I've been always Taught to chase the light Some me die with the Ulfberht in their side Or wolfsbane in their mulled wine And some men fly, just like the Gods in the sky And with the scars to prove it Please forgive me if I wander Down the road tonight If you'll permit me, I've been always Taught to chase the light

Say what you want If you want to believe you can You'll have everyone beside you Say what you want If you want I'll stay, if you want I won't Only if you say what you want, if you want If you can believe what it means when you deny me Pray if you want For the dust, the worms and the ashes under On my way Oh, I won't -- I won't run away On my way home And I -- I know As I'm thinking of the better ways And how I was taken by surprise Even as I'm thinking of the better days Thinking I could read within your eyes

Oh, quam dulcis vita fuit Dum sedebamus in quieti Cras damus deo vitas Sic nunc vivimus ad bibendum Animam curare quam carnem quoniam haec manet illa perit Oh, gaudeamus igitur! Sic nunc vivimus ad bibendum

Oh have you seen the signs? They happen every mile With each step, one movement closer to the fire We've marched this road from the Volga to the shoals, But now there's nowhere left to go The cries, they last all night, Til we open up our eyes To see the black blizzard buzzing in the sky Like bits of skin that flicker in the wind, They've turned to dust, worms, and ashes now
11.
No one will be left behind Just you and I And any time they try to find us We'll hide However we want to go We'll decide Just a little bit of summer, and fall And a little bit of winter... And spring will follow close behind For you and I Spring will follow close behind
12.
This is the way that I remember you The colors all blend into blue And all the while you know That I could never reach tomorrow Even with the time that flows And all that you can say Wait another day, You say it's even with the time Even with the time, that flows This is the way that I remember you The colors all blend into blue You saw your stars align Thought you could find your way to heaven Even with the time that flows But with the will to pray deserting you The colors all blend into blue
13.
The bond you've held together Is as wild as the pride As the tiding that flits by And as the havier by your side But will your love be close to you When all is cold Or will the stag that weeps for you Weep all alone Oh will your love be close to you When all is cold Or will the stag that weeps for you Weep all alone The blood you've shared together Is as warm as the herd's As the sounder that surrounds you Or the tender kendle purr But will your love be close to you When all is cold Or will the stag that weeps for you Weep all alone Oh will your blood be close to you When all is cold Or will the stag that bleeds for you bleed all alone

about

*Caveat emptor* CARLOMAN II is a tale packed with betrayal, hubris, love, and gratuitous eunuchising. It is an antihero's tragic journey into far away lands rich with beasts and brigands, sand and sea, injury and intoxication. Some have compared Carloman II's journey to that of Super Mario II -- those peasants have been dealt with. They are now on a long journey of their own.

CARLOMAN II was released on 12/12/2013, in honor of the 1,129th anniversary of the death of our beloved medieval monarch, Carloman II.

Honi soit qui mal y pense!

Carloman New York, New York

An ancient story of bestiary, religious and political strife drowned in the deafening whispers of tortured souls tumbling through bile and chaos into the beautiful nausea that is the world of Carloman...
