Track Name: Quetzalcoatlus (Black in Bluhm live session 12/15/12)
Though my long beak is fairly thin and toothless,
slow my technique is finding food. I'm ruthless.
I am a Quetzalcoatlus. I know my name is odd -
strange as the shape of a nautilus. It came from a Mesoamerican
feathered serpent god.
Oh, I was made for soaring. It was made for me, so
what's to stop the roaring need to frequently go
closer to the bright ball blazing overhead?
Can't resist the flight call. Desire must be fed
in the plains I live on, deep within the
heart of Texas, which will not be named 'til long after I
take my last breath; 'til long after I die.
65 million years by.
Not too long before the Wright Brothers fly.
Not until then will anything of my jumbo size do so.
Grand Ahzdarchid, wild blue yonder king.
You're the largest airborne living thing.
Fast twitch fiber; muscles made like springs.
Like a tiger outfitted with wings.
