lyrics

POLYCOTYLUS:
From the sea to the east of Laramidia, within a mother lived another Polycotylus.
“I never left the comfort of the womb. Together, we expired and found a tomb to rest in. Earth pressed in.

On a walk, in Kansas rock, my mother was discovered and exhumed.
The plaster cast and earth were then removed. The day I was uncovered, it was proved:
we of Plesiosauria were viviparous.

Living young, given lungs, much like whales. Born from water, we moved to the land, then flippers grew from legs we used to have. The sea is where we came from and we learned that life was better there, so we returned.”

from Antiquasauria, released September 11, 2015
Ian Cooke: voice, keyboards
Sean Merrell: drums, percussion
Ian O'Dougherty: guitar
Whit Sibley: bass

Produced by Ian O'Dougherty and Chris Fogal.
Mastered by David Glasser at Airshow.

From the forthcoming album Antiquasauria, to be released in early 2015.
Each song tells a tale about a different animal from the mesozoic era: Stegosaurus, Diplodocus, Microraptor, Polycotylus, Parasaurolophus, Quetzalcoatlus, and Tyrannosaurus. 10 tracks, 40 minutes.

This song is about a specific plesiosaur (Polycotylus latippinus) found in Kansas and currently in the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. The specimen includes an unborn fetus, leading paleontologists to believe that they gave live birth.
