about

the tupilak is sent to block qayak's way,
but is too transfixed by the moon to carry it out

lyrics

Shouting high from the seventh story,
he surmises the fallen glory.
Gets ready to go, gone away as a dream.
Careful not to awaken neighbors,
lest the sunrise confess suspicion.
Walking away, the night is his day.

Walking on his tiptoes, darting eyeballs left and right.
He shakes when he can't take it.

Slithering across the snow one Sunday,
Making trips to see Sedna daily,
Gets ready to go, gone away as a dream.
Advertising his age old secret, isn't anything silver about him,
foxy or not. Light pours out of his house.

Such a moon our man and Tupilak begin to sing.

Tupilak to man: haven't I seen you here?
Making trips to see Sedna daily?
Licking his lips, our man will suffer from trips.
Moon is mine, T, alone I work here.
Selflessness is my only virtue.
foxy or not, Light pours out of his house.

Such a moon our man and Tupilak begin to sing.

Still alive on this August evening.
Journey's end, as the water's stillness.
