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

Untitled 04:09
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.
