about

Ferian, taking its title from an Old English verb meaning to carry, is the second EP from Bishop and Atheist. Through stripped down, dark acoustic folk music it tells four tales of the burdens of sin, greed, lust, and downfall, drawing inspiration from both myth and reality.

Track Name: To Be Wrought

Track Name: Poor Little Lucifer
poor little lucifer sitting by the side of the road
watching the birds fly by in the blistering cold
poor little lucifer sitting there scratching his neck
wishing his eyes wouldnt be so unbearably wet
and yet

you are
so far
away
from home

poor little lucifer, sinking on down in the pit
peter won't listen and jesus is givin' him shit
poor little lucifer, he never got his throne
he's getting' kinda tired and he's never ever ever goin' home
ya know

you are
so far
away
from home
Track Name: While I Am Weakest
on these nights alone
waiting for you to come home
theres an aching in my chest
theres a burning with no rest

I can see that night
frailty in the light
i don't remember why
you let me in your thighs

I never left this hold

you and I
who was the weakest
one

I remember why
the first time I left
it wasn't quite
as bad as this
Track Name: Bathing In Her Folds
She was from another time
Generation born of pine
Yet she roamed across this space
Where she offered her embrace
In wood her people dwelled
O lady born of elve

And the earth we did defile
As we laid betwixt the pile
And nature hid her smile
Writhing under oak
Tending to the growth
Bathing in her folds

Deep inside the hold
Our madness did unfold
A burst of sacred light
She screamed into the night
Our flesh convulsing tight
Her rosebed dripping white

And the earth we did defile
As we laid betwixt the pile
And nature hid her smile
Writhing under oak
Tending to the growth
Bathing in her folds
Track Name: Eden
Do you feel what I feel?
Do you see what I see?
Do you breath what I breath?

All this I'd
Give to you
See what he keeps from you
Open wide
Eat the truth
Close his lies behind you

Do you think when you see?
Are you pleased like I'm pleased?
Do you see what I see?
Do you see what you could be?

Do you believe what you see?
Can you not gaze upon me?
Now man sees what he must see
