Track Name: Tonight The Buzzards Circle The Grindstone
Whet your scythe
Reap the grain
Bleed the soil
Seas aflame
Fill the cask
Drink deep this curse
Sate the hunger
Slake the thirst

Spill the vein
To nourish the grass
Etched in stone
Sands to glass
So sedentary
So Civilized
Now every branch we see
Becomes an axe or scythe

BLEED
The one who put the whiskey in our wells
The one who cut our hair and tamed us
Tonight we’ll see him weeping as well
Tonight the buzzards circle the grindstone
Track Name: Untitled
We’ve forgotten how we got here
A frigid wind just runs us through.
Cold tranquility, soft perception,
Cold rain will wash away the snow
Numb to our pasts
We exist, hollow
Numb to the storm
black clouds SWELL spreading white ash,
black clouds SWELL spreading new earth.
black clouds SWELL spreading white ash,
black clouds SWELL spreading new earth.
Our. Memories. Buried. Below.
We walk without purpose or cause
We. Whisper. With Our. Footprints.
No history, but a single thought:
We are. We are.
But we know not where or who.
Numb to our past
Our memories, our lives
Numb to the storm
black clouds SWELL spreading white ash,
black clouds SWELL spreading new earth.
black clouds SWELL spreading white ash,
black clouds SWELL spreading new earth.
And so we await a sun to thaw the answers.
The sun never comes, the clouds will not break.
A cold rain will wash away the snow
and show our selves our corpses.
