Track Name: Corsicana, 1894
I have discovered wealth in the ground
that liquid lover is down down down
i'll be a rich man with what i've found
these fools they don't know whats down down down

wrought iron and steam mechanical hearts, the reaper
these modern machines will tear it apart, for us now
say its unclean say we should dream of balance
it's nothing to me, the end is the means, i'm dirty now

don't look to heaven, keep your eyes on the ground
the truest treasure is down down down
my golden gospel has turned foul
i feel it sinking down down down

wrought iron and steam mechanical hearts, the reaper
these modern machines will tear it apart, for us now
say its unclean say we should dream of balance
it's nothing to me, the end is the means, i'm dirty now

it's nothing to me
Track Name: Pull Me From Hell
I could see you running lost the rope and let the hammer fly
the emissary's calling out and you could be the one in mind
You, bought traded stole everything, you could want
a vault full of beautiful things, for you to haunt

where could I go, how could you not tell
I needed you to pull me from hell
a silver tongue that tastes of cyanide
where have you gone this time?

i wished for an escape but it wasn't what I had in mind
the fear is omnipresent and I don't have the guts to fly
you soar on impeccable wings while I crawl
down with the dirtier things untouchable

where could I go, how could you not tell
I needed you to pull me from hell
a silver tongue that tastes of cyanide
where have you gone this time?

I am here, will you look down from above
a barrier, can't touch your finger to my tongue
You have everything, you could want and
You live with the beautiful things, and I am not
Track Name: Degrees and Separation
a place in the sun,
Is all that I’ve wanted
I'll see it in time
alive or dead

I see you shiver, just a frigid passerby
spine curving with the chill, can’t hold your head up high
no place in the sun but I know that I’ve got mine
this burning lantern, deep in my chest
carved away, i make my way back home

a failure to find
a common human thread
i’ll see you next time
alive or dead

tie your head under the plow you’re gonna dig your own way out
its blood and sweat that breaks the freeze, personal responsibility

Crowned and confined
A king in my own head
You'll see me in time
Alive or dead
Track Name: In Spades
Save yourself somehow, lover lay down, the cadence of heartbeats that echoes the
sound of undone years, the focus and fear, that everythings ended before you could begin

It's already done, just go have your fun, you're a fool for chasing the sun all the time
It's all within reach, cut the cord and go free, get some rest, get some rest, get some rest

Pull the houses down, gamble all your stores before the winter puts us deep into the dirty ground,
Now we make our home here in the dirt, as hunter gatherers, I never planned to make this a scene but we did now they're dead now it's done

You're getting older faster than you ever thought you could so come on
They're repossessing your throne, you rule the world then you don't
curse your bones

They're repossessing your throne, you rule the world then you don't
They'll tie you up in tape say they'll let you out one day but they won't,
til the grave, only rules, in spades

I have seen whats waiting at the end, the crown of glass and tin,
the prize for all your skin, the sweat that stings your eyes,
to stay within the lines, just for bragging rights, they're worthless
Track Name: A Collapse
Miles below the sea short on oxygen
Diving deeper downward with a shovel still in hand

Where is the release, how can I withstand
40 tons of pressure now and I am just a man

save your razor tongue i'm doing fine
make it to the bottom in my time
give me is what is mine


Falling just to find that the wells already dry and I'm all poured out with nothing to show
Trade a perfect diamond for a belly full of sand now you're hungrier than ever before

pull the marbles pillars down, make yourself a glorious end
no one else to pull you out, do the job deny 'em the chance
