"Fothcrah" is track eleven on the Hungry Lights studio album "The Awry Ascent."


"Fothcrah" is the final chapter in the story. Here, Prill is face to face with the creature that he has been hunting. Despite seeing that he is clearly outmatched, he foolishly continues to attempt to catch the mighty beast, ending the story on an eerie cliff-hanger.


No warning, my sea had gone quiet

I was there, but not prepared to brush with the terrible creature I had found

She invoked my fear!

Now, caught in the height of my voyage,

I looked into the sea and focused

In my own reflection—what I saw!

How I felt betrayed!

In the gloom, ruby eyes watched me from behind a mask

-With a face just like mine

...Waiting for my consent

Such a culling could mean my end

Trust and certainty, both guiding into the grave

-A foolish inquiry

I tested the weight of my anchors

I'd survive...

So, down I climbed

What wonder could hide in that spiral!

Should I fail, it would mean more shame

Was it pride?

Was it greed that lead me to such poor accord?

In the jaws of the beast, would I still feel the same?

All my life, I'd been robbed of all my dignity

But now, I was the rogue who would return it back

Such a culling could mean my end

Trust and certainty, both guiding into the grave

-A foolish inquiry

She hanged—she lingered until I dropped my gaze

Her roar—what thunder to haunt my every dream!

Such corruption leaked into my sea!

In my confusion, she broke through the fence 

O' she was patient and sat on my line!

A turning of tide...

Was she the prey or the hunter?

O' I had believed me the hand of a god!

How I must be insane!

...But the best of us are

This madman is bringing home glory and prestige!

Behind the complex is a man with the soul of a king

Or a meal for the beast...

 Trivia Edit

  • This song has no relation to the amnaeon song of the same name featured on the demo album "Aorta Borealis IV," and is instead a remake of the song titled "The Anti-human," off of amnaeon's "The Proamates III."
