Silver Snakes

Hang me up like a tight rope
a bridge with a hold on you
dull my sense of surrounding
a silk worm across the loom
Tell me once more
is that all you have to give
show me once more
hold it to the light
Spit your word like a poison
new silver holes in the hands
Yeah I tore like an arrow
through stitching to understand
then my eyes turned red
I couldn’t sleep
In that bed of cancer and love
yeah there’s so much more to a family than their blood
cut all ties
dull your interests
the sign of surrender
you’ll soon be no different
Tell me once more
is that all you have to give
weave in, weave out
show me once more
hold it to the light
I’ve burned all my bridges to you
I tore the threads and splinters from that loom
It makes no sense
but still we try
to let them live
to watch ‘em die
Once a fire
now an ocean
you’ve lost all your color
they call that devotion

sun will rise
the sun will roam 
you locked me up with a dull knife
I should’ve known
you can’t miss what you don’t own
It’s a pity

don’t you dare feel sorry for them 
they don’t want to be real 
In every confrontation 
I crave the taste..

sun will rise
the sun will roam 
I locked you up with a sharp knife
quell the fever an’ take me home
If i’m the marrow you’re the bone

don’t you dare feel sorry for them 
they don’t want to be real 
In every confrontation 
I crave the taste
a taste of..

quell the fever an’ take me home
you want it all
I wanted more
give me a taste of your violence

 

one
the hunter says he’s got that luck comin’ up 
when he’s back in town
he’ll shoot em’ down
he’ll carve em’ out
then you’ll hang em’ up like they never even made a sound

fox and embers
you’ll get it

two
yeah they’ll hunt you
says he’s got that cut comin’ up 
but I’m not around
where nothing’s real
yeah no one’s clean
the lights left on above 
the speaking eyes call not one
the soul pathetic

fox and embers

why wont you?
why can’t they replace the lamps now?
we need help
the eyes lie
no smoke rose 
but I burnt that house down
so stop breathing, deep

just run

It took twelve to let go
I can’t settle now
there’s no fault
my skin crawled to welcome you back to your home town 
these are more than lives on gray

you can rely but you can’t recall the cycle 
finally I found an ox to hunt you down
speak from your bones and tell me of your calling
and what can’t be shown 
spare your eyes the comofort constant 
like a hand in red
yeah they’ll end you where you stand

you say it can’t be real 
we say we’re not the weaker lion
who leads the chase on the wolves?
who sees no color
we’re waiting

all the eye will burn out bright
every chance you take is golden
all the eye will burn out bright
every truth you break is hollow

A curly wolf axe 
Tonight I was on my way to see
The runaway trains
The wrong times
You can’t help if you can’t leave
Hold on
I never meant to stay so long

A northern rain passed me by
I held out a burnt empty hand
A copper nail grin a long time comin’
I can’t seem to understand
You say you’ve got a grey sky Above a bloodshot town
Yeah but you pity what you own
I pity that hell
Hold on
I’f you’re the cinder I am burning at the seams

Hokahey It’s a good day to die
Or in the night 
It’s all your eye without the hate

So keep your secrets and your desert smile
My runaway horse head
All your eye
