Track Name: Revels
save your strength cause you're rollin' on empty falling harder than the anchor's tow / make no mistake yeah the chisel is tempting you'll be gone before the last bird crows / raised all hell till' you're wrought and naked never spoke soft cause it didn't end well / ask no odds just bury her bones cause murder can't buy you the time

// keep your head low (and your revels high when your revel's low) keep the trail cold (and your revels high when your revel's low) keep your fears close (and your revels high when your revel's low) keep your head low (and your revels high)

/ count your days down to the blanket a fice in your time, crowbait blues / caught by the tail caught up in the moment caught up in time caught in a ruse /// silver can't buy you a name and laments can't buy you the time / if your left hand makes you sin just sever the bones and kindle the fire
Track Name: Teeth and Eyes
wage war like you're judge and jury it's a tryst grip where love takes no sides / you got tall tales on your lips they're making callous truths of their wrongs your rights / oh judas steer they're ripe for the taking they're bought and sold for a devil's prize / led to the wide of the mark left craving clothed in bluet and paid in heist

// teeth and eyes, iron vice, all in time, all in time / tell me did your last hand make it before the rooster crowed three times

/ taste rid of the tar and pit its a lone night among the garden crowns / tell me son did your soul need saving? tell me boy did you make it right?
Track Name: Blood / Grain // Cocaine
all draw cuts never figured it out
(it's what you've been told, what you've been told)
all strung out and lining your rows
(it's what you've been sold, what you've been sold)

// i've been down too long in the midnight moons singin' cocaine blues / where blood and grain are same to the few / where you weigh the stakes but break and you lose / here you never come down and you never sleep walk in my shoes / where the river runs high and the hate runs deep C-O-C-A-I-N-E

/ oh my love we're a dying breed
(it's what you've been told, what you've been told)
went looking for God where the grave found me
(it's what you've been sold, what you've been sold)
Track Name: Five Knives
i am the doctor, narcotic saint / i'll trade my forbidden fruit for the crown, bride to be / i am the breach birth i am the weight / i am the serpent king, watch my banner wave

{i'm the fire of a thousand tongues, a glorified liar on a stage
leading a chorus of cynics and critics hell bent on cleaning the stain}

// drink and feast of my body, bleed bleed bleed the well dry / stake your claim and divide what's left / sink these five knives

/ i'm a worm in the mouth of a bird / slight of hand beneath the grey / you could be anything, the words, i'll be the page / i am the seeker, seek ye my face / oh unbeliever there's a wolf among your ranks

{i'm the sight of a million hands lifted high you can read me like a cheap surprise}

/// you scaled the walls, i heard you say / i was born in a storm and raised in a hurricane
