Track Name: Spahn Ranch Campfire
SPAHN RANCH CAMPFIRE

All my family is coming down
with forbidden crosses on foreheads

You can hear Squeaky's laughter and Charlie's prayers getting louder
My bowels are made of bees, please set me free and feed you from my blood

All my dreams are gone, i'll never say never to always
All my friends are fading away and it's just another sunny day

I've made one step out of line
while brothers and sisters were keeping smile
I don't give a fuck about my trial
knowing some of you are bringers of betrayal

Bobby's screwin' and smokin' in sub-basement
We're talkin' about motivation inexistant
Noddy's creepy crawling for the pleasure of being guilty
All my dreams are gone, i'll never say never to always
All my friends are fading away and it's just another sunny day
Bobby's screwin' and smokin' in sub-basement, we're talkin' about motivation inexistant
Noddy's creepy crawling for the pleasure of being guilty
Track Name: In the church of blind drunks, the preacher is one eyed man
IN THE CHURCH OF BLIND DRUNKS, THE PREACHER IS ONE EYED MAN

Welcome home Mr. One eyed Man
Sit down and listen the story i'm gonna tellin'
May do you know, i love to kiss the bottle
It is only to drown the reality veil
Can you hear september rain's falling
It only sings Mary virgin pain
Choirs of mindless lambs are singing in useless churches

In search of meaningless redemption
I'm light headed by guilt
Worshipping some weak demons to feed

I Just wanna escape this mess
and only midnight hunger can help through this

I've been lost in the land of treachery
would like live another destiny
Summoning goat and self destruction
Beg and cry for some distraction
Gathered around circles of ashes
Children of god are playing with human limbs

we come out when sun is down for conjuration of fire
It's time for us to drink unholy water

Look at your only one eye that glows
You can't break this face on your own
draw the righteous path to follow
Death is standing right outside your kingdom

One more shot to drown my sorrow
I can feel your deadly halo
Ashen faces hew crosses on the wall
Broken hearted brother, your pain i swallow .
Track Name: Nail king
NAIL KING

I don't remember the day i was born
just like bed of roses growing on stone ground
Dreaming in the blueest sea that i ever saw
Please, sweet mother tell me about the end of the world

Sometimes, i'm feeling like a broken bone
and sometimes i'm speaking like a voice without a sound
Losing my head Am i messiah or nailking

Trying to catch pure light in river of blood
The bleakest of spears leads me to the house of god
I never claimed to preach the very truth
I just want to die like ...

Listen to the blowin' winds, here's the black angel arrival
Down on your knees and hear the divine call

Sometimes i'm smelling like a wretched dog
sometimes i'm wearing a crown without thorns
Thinking about above am i the son of god

In the beginning god created the heaven and the dying earth

And then one day i found you, i didn't believe it, you took me everything
left me rotting, stinking and falling
And i prayed for your death, your fall and your disgrace
You are just nothing, a shelter for those without shame
Track Name: Mountain queen and dirty white man
MOUNTAIN QUEEN AND DIRTY WHITE MAN

What beautiful words written on the wall, feelings so untold
Sometimes, i need a quick fix of anger to exhale the wine of life
Don't worry, i won't never harm you, the bottle is empty and i know this is the only remedy

All dressed in white, laughing at your sight
Get back on one's feet and it's gonna be all right

I never could reach your holy mountain
So breastfeed the lamb and share it flesh
I never could appreciate your goodness
So leave with my bitterness

Dirty white man is my color in the night

I'm holding your hand with cold and distant feeling
My queen crowned in tears, i shall bleed for my sins

All dressed in white, laughing at your sight
Get back on one's feet and it's gonna be all right

I never could reach your holy mountain
So breastfeed the lamb and share it flesh
I never could appreciate your goodness
So leave with my bitterness

Sleeping amongst bretrayers, singing like deadly bird
my queen shall inherit the earth, the man once you loved captured in sin.

Could you stand right here and face the third eye of evil's seed
Mountain queen with crystal tears, the man once you loved, captured in sin.
I never could reach your holy mountain
So breastfeed the lamb and share it flesh
I never could appreciate your goodness
So leave with my bitterness
Track Name: Drift Away
DRIFT AWAY

Drift away from this house, your memory swirls around
like the leaves of the older trees
Family pictures on dirty ground, broken piano without sound
i just can't let you down
No mother milk to soothe your soul, calm down and take control
for you can see you're not deaf and blind

Some people say i've got golden hands
but i've just got gleaming brown eyes
filled with anger and your beautiful eyes

Now you're living in bleeding heart street where no one dares to stay here
Still the rain's falling down, no wounds healing, suddenly summertime has gone away
please lay down one's arm cause your heart has torn apart
and remember the days of july
Some people say i've got golden hands
but i've just got gleaming brown eyes
filled with anger and your beautiful eyes

Sometimes i'm feeling like a lion in a cage
but without teeths i can't really bite you.
