about

Andrew Barker, known for his work as a multi-instrumentalist and contributing force behind Toronto Folk-Rock outfit Bruce Peninsula, showcases his individual talent with his solo venture, The Lake Vernon Drowning. The LVD is a marriage of eerily harmonized lyrics with adventurous instrumental arrangements. Dark and cerebral, expect beautiful questions and angry answers.

Track Name: Cloven Hoof
the sun split wide open bleeding white light awoke a demon in my psyche gave me second sight folklore holy war sodom and gomorrah for evermore i can foretell the future i can read the minds of men all but one thing eludes my sight the hand of my demise the fall of modern times saw rise of feudal tribes my gift begets retribution my vengeance is my right folklore holy war sodom and gomorrah for evermore
Track Name: the Oil of Vitriol
oil of vitriol an ink dye cast into the sky its plume bled into my eyes blinded by the black black magic the sweet oil of vitriol the morning star lands in an entangled bank the arms trade foxhole vixen is fixing the fight for the men of leisure and the men of war the match locked black powder two headed minotaur
Track Name: Imprismed
on the edge of a woods under a spells hood imprisoned in a den of sin the white witch condemned in the pearl of the moon its light bends to meet again imprismed i grew up inside of it i grew up in the light of it darkness has befallen our time we'll set her free and turn the tides turn the tides a curse on he who tries to save me trapped inside the pearl of the moon i grew up inside of it i grew up in the light of it
Track Name: White Witch
the plague freed from the arctic ice not of this world comes from beyond reduces their minds down to black and white to create an army of corrupted ones oh their skin is shape shifting the wind howls like a banshee her song is her raft on the storm that's brewing her white figure bound in light the siren soothsayer white witch

they lay siege by night the slaves of disease she cracks the sky lays all to waste calls on the gods to break their bones from the summit to the shore their watery grave oh their skin is shapeshifting the wind howls like a banshee her song is her raft on the storm that's brewing her white figure bound in light the siren soothsayer white witch
Track Name: Vigil
a modern day dark age a divided time between united tribes the changing clime mutated minds brought the rise of unearthly kinds evolutions spell conflict between ancient beliefs wars waged over the earths inheritor traitors in league enslaved by greed enemies of we who seek to be free visionary blind man enlightened second sight totem rising sun to guide our women and men two worlds to war dark triad chord of a warlord his tyrant soul balances our fate in the faith of man
Track Name: Undercurrent
she floats on the undertow in the sea grass meadow as the moon aligns and pulls back the tide pulls the sun down pulls the nightgown off her thigh the crystal water is casting i look into the past at all the hearts i've won with all the spells i've spun i wish i could forget she floats on the undertow in the sea grass meadow as the moon aligns and pulls back the tide pulls the sun down pulls the nightgown off her thigh
Track Name: the Pearl of the Moon
i hold you in the palm of my hand a smooth seashell buried in the sand a white orb pearl of the moon i want to smash your alabaster shell into a thousand fortunes to spill the spoils from within your wounds cool breeze swinging off kilter gate

earth apple crystal ball in a cage peer into it's light pearl of the moon pearl of the moon you couldn't raise you breath in these fields turn their world onto it's head unstitch the web they thread us through an oracle shield drive deep the needle into the marrow of white ore drive deep the needle to the pearl of the moon cool breeze swinging off kilter gate earth apple crystal ball in a cage a statued marble girl the pearl of the moon
Track Name: Siren Song
the siren in the cove enveloped me in her song her serpents tendril tongue glistened as she sung lyrics of envy the siren's requiem condemned me to eternity cursed rain for centuries turned me to a beast that haunts the depths of the sea there's a darkness hidden within the intervals of her beautiful melody there's a darkness

i have played the fool a leader of men with forced hands freed the ghost of the white witch with the sirens serenade lost ourselves lost our way as the shortening days spun the almanacs pinwheel back to when the world was flat petrified family tree sapling dynasty there's a darkness hidden within the intervals of her beautiful melody her beautiful melody
