Track Name: Foothills Before the Mountain
Foothills before the mountain. Rising up from nothing. To the highest summit. Foothills before the mountain. Slow climb from the flatlands. Rising up from nothing. Foothills before the mountain. Peril lies in the ascent. Peril lies in descent. Sermon on the Mount of Judgement. Terror lies in the decent suffering on the Mount of Judgement. Foothills before the mountain. Rising up from nothing. Slow climb from the flatlands. To the highest summit.
Track Name: Dying on the Silver Screen
Childhood eyes on the silver screen. I was a vigilante down in Old Mexico or a lawman on the Southwest Range. Putting down insurrections against the establishment. Quelling rebellion for the government. Robbing trains to keep my families mouths fed. Killer in the streets. Vultures got to eat. Killer in the streets. Vultures got to eat. Childhood eyes on the silver screen, scalp hunting down in Old Mexico. Waging war. Killing for the government. The common man. Naive eyes on the silver screen. The unholy covenant. God and glory aren't what they seem. A front for the establishment. Someones gotta die on the silver screen. Fodder for the hungry beast. Sometimes gotta die on the silver screen. Fodder for the hungry beast.
Track Name: No More Debts to Pay
There is a debt to pay for every breath and every drink of water. Thirst never quenched. There is a price a pay for the nite time when you lay your burned out head down to rest deeply entrenched. Consumed by fatigue. No sleeping in the streets. Pushed to the outer reach. Falling back down through the veil of reality. Pulled back down through the veil of reality. There is a debt to pay. Son of Sun. Daughter of my hearts blood. We all beat as one. We all eat as one. Daughter of the Sun. Son of my hearts blood. Daughter of the Sun. Hearts full of blood. We all breathe as one. No more debts to pay.
Track Name: A Stones Throw
History is winding down tonite we speak without a sound. Speak without a sound. History is winding down tonite we sing without a song. Sing without a song. Just a stones throw through the window. History is winding down tonite we dance without a drum. Dance without a drum. Winding down and down through the circle round. Just a stones throw through the window.
Track Name: Dust on the Wayside
Ready set go stop go relentless. A month in the saddle and feeling so homesick. Day turns to low and arcs towards a goodbye. Back on the road before the sleep has cleared your eyes. Wheel grinding nerves down to dust on the wayside. Something has got to give or this whole thing erupts in a firefight. Cursed words we don't mean. Can't take back if we try. We will try. Return from the limit. What did you see in that fateful interaction? Destruction. Return from the limit. Brink of existence. Can you see your own destruction? Ready set go stop go relentless. A month in the saddle and feeling so homesick. Day turns to low and arcs towards a goodbye. Back on the road before the sleep has cleared your eyes. Return from the limit. Brink of existence. What did you hear in that fateful interaction? Distraction.
Track Name: Leader of the New Death
Go it alone. One hand in hand. Ancestral enemy of the self. Walking the path. Passing the time. Loss of self. Leader of the new death. Two as one sharing the last breath. Drink from a poison cup. Sin is gilded. Bury them deep. Bury them low. Drink from a memory. Silence is golden. Silence is golden. Sin is gilded. One hand in hand. Two as one sharing the same breath. Three arms form a pyramid. Go it alone. One hand in hand. Two as one sharing the same breath. Sign a truce. Sign a treaty. All meaningless. The word of law is broken. Sign a bill for your own profit. Selling salvation for pennies on the dollar.
Track Name: What's Mine
Someone holds a golden key. Secret to the stars. Hidden for all time. The people are asking why. Someone holds a tattered book. Knowledge lost to time. On the long slow decline. The people just close their eyes. Deep sleep now close your mind. Deep sleep now close your eyes. Show me the way to the center of the line. I won't stop asking why. The answers frozen in time. On the long slow decline. The people are screaming why can't I get what's mine? Deep sleep now close your mind. Deep sleep now close your eyes. Please show me the way to the center of the line. "Oh don't ask why. If I tell you we must die."
Track Name: From Where You Came
The clouded eyes. The wild eyes. Steering fate blind. The lying eyes sealing fate blind. Can we go back to another time? When the Gods smiled upon the Earth for countless lives. Send me back from where I came. The moon like blood red wine. Steering fate blind. The lion eyes robbing fate blind.
