To be released as a limited edition lathe cut vinyl


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

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


from Whiskey and Thunderheads, track released June 6, 2012
Recorded by Rich Scott at 409 Haus, Mastered by Colin Marsten
