They walk a desolate trail searching for home In a desert full of Dust Devils and God's own The line in the sand they are dying on It's on the hands of them God damn son of a guns The line in the sand they are dying We are dying on It's on the hands of them God damn son of a guns They're trying to erase indigenous ties to the land Out of mind and sight crushed in the hidden hand The line in the sand they are dying on It's on the hands of them God damn son of a guns The line in the sand they are dying We are dying on It's on the hands of them God damn son of a guns It's on the hands of them God damn son of a guns They walk a desolate trail searching for home Know this land we're standing on is covered in blood It's on the hands of them God damn son of a guns

Our Mother of infinite sorrows pierced by seven arrows The rising the falling our hearts revealing Weighed against the feather of my baby Blackbird Her broken wing is healing Life is for redeeming It's inevitable The news of no tomorrow The shattered realm you're seeking Blinded by Earthly fortune We were all chosen Builders of no tomorrow The shattered path you're seeking Blinded by Earthly fortune We were all chosen Our Mother of infinite sorrows pierced by seven arrows The news of no tomorrow The shattered realm you're seeking Blinded by Earthly fortune We were all chosen Builders of no tomorrow The shattered path you're seeking Blinded by Earthly fortune We were all chosen Our mother of infinite sorrows Our mother of infinite sorrows "Hoof Dusk" by Carl Sandburg The dusk of this box wood is leather gold, buckskin gold, and the hoofs of a dusk goat leave their heel marks on it. The cover of this wooden box is a last-of-the-sunset red, a red with a sandman sand fixed in evening siftings— late evening sands are here. The gold of old clocks, forgotten in garrets, hidden out between battles of long wars and short wars, the smoldering ember gold of old clocks found again— here is the small smoke fadeout of their slow loitering. Feel me with your fingers, measure me in fire and wind: maybe I am buckskin gold, old clock gold, late evening sunset sand— Let go and loiter in the smoke fadeout.

Unsatiated 09:23
Unsatiated Forever and always leaving Seeing closure as weakness So without a whisper onwards into the quiet Drinking from a bitter cup Lead in the water Unsatiated Forever and always leaving The reason faded Forever and always bleeding The blur of the wayside Black holes in our mind's eye The burning of archetypes Black holes in our mind's eye Black holes in our mind's eye Unsatiated Forever and always leaving Under the cover of night sky Black holes in our mind's eye

Feral Blues 05:16
A herd of Wild Horses stampede through Bighorn Canyon A picture so idyllic Can you hear the triple echo? The ghosts on Bad Pass Trail Let this land live feral For all who walked before us For all who will come after For all who walked before us For all who will come after Let this land live feral Let this land live wild Let this land live wild Let this land live feral Let this land live feral

In a veil of dark smoke when the fire on the mountain broke When the fire on the mountain broke in a veil of dark smoke I was over on the Western Slope panning a creek for gold Panning a creek for gold over on the Western Slope When the fire on the mountain broke in a veil of dark smoke I dropped my bag of gold in a crag dark and low When the fire on the mountain broke in a veil of dark smoke Climbed down in the hole to grab my bag of gold And that's where you'll find my bones in that deep and dark hole When the fire on the mountain broke in a veil dark smoke One day they'll find my bones Some lonely wandering soul Steal my bag of gold take it for their own Then the curse will be reborn You know it's time to run when the fire on the mountain breaks Here come the darker days Idols will crumble Toppled by Karma's disciples We all bare the scars of celestial bombardment In a veil of dark when the fire on the mountain broke Tried to steal my bag of gold when the fire on the mountain broke That's where you'll find our bones clutching the bag of gold When the fire on the mountain broke in a veil of dark smoke In a veil of dark smoke when the fire on the mountain broke Now we're never going home but at least I ain't alone We got this bag of gold and nothing to spend it on Idols will crumble Toppled by Karma's disciples We all bear the scars of celestial bombardment Idols will crumble Toppled by Karma's disciples We all wear the scars of celestial bombardment

Slip into subconsciousness Float away on clouds of grey Peeling back the layers of our troubled minds The sound of laughter A tear in time The nights of quiet Your love's not mine Our simple nature is intelligent design No peace in the country It's war on our land No peace in the city It's war on our minds The peace of the Mountain Wanna leave it all behind The peace when you're holding your hand in mine No peace in the country It's war on the land No peace in the city It's war on our minds The peace of the Mountain Gonna leave it all behind The peace when you're holding your hand in mine

Piasa 08:59
A stray dog with no name wandering the remains of a brokedown palace Pyramids of the dirt The Great Thunderbird of the American Bottoms In the lithographic limestone they quarried her bones to chisel their words of nothing Obscured by fake clouds The hawk and the field mouse The prey is held in talons Will the circle be unbroken for those with no home waiting? Humans held in cages A loving family separated The circle must be broken for those with no hope waiting In the warzones we created It's on our backs to change it Will the circle be unbroken for those with no home waiting? Humans held in cages A loving family separated The circle must be broken for those with no hope waiting In the warzones we created Innocent lives decimated Will the circle be unbroken? The breath of life is sacred Everyone deserves to breathe it Is this the age of mass extinction? A stray dog with no name wandering the remains of a brokedown palace Pyramids of the dirt The Great Thunderbird of the American Bottoms In the lithographic limestone they quarried her bones to chisel their words of nothing

When your hopes are farflung into the reaches Well beyond the grasp of empty hands holding nothing We're all caught in planetary crossfire Riding on a horse named Deathstar Going where no soul dare follow In the valley In the shadows The sirens singing a song so haunting "We're digging down down down through the dirt ceiling" There was no secret in the tomb Just a lone wolf crying for the Moon When your love is long gone Roadkill in ditches A circle of vultures Picking the petrified bones of Mother Nature Hold the ramparts for fear it comes falling This mortal coil was all for nothing Digging in mud for blood diamonds In the valley In the shadows The sirens singing a song so haunting "We're digging down down down through the dirt ceiling" There was no secret in the tomb Just a lone wolf crying for the Moon There was no secret in the tomb Just a lone wolf crying for the Moon
