Track Name: Monolith
C’mon down to the old stone mountain, see just where I’ve been,
I braved the nights and the ancient rites to find my next of kin,
And there’s hell to pay in the world today, but the devil will be your friend,
There’s hell to pay in the world today, but the devil will be your friend.

Burnin’ daylight, burnin’ daylight fast.
Burnin’ daylight, burnin’ daylight fast.

People cry and people moan, the witches, they burn their sage,
But the thing that gets me every time, is the dawning of the age,
The sand runs low in the hourglass, dark master turns the page,
As the bell tolls twelve in the village square like a wild bird in its cage.

Burnin’ daylight, burnin’ daylight fast.
Burnin’ daylight, burnin’ daylight fast.
Track Name: Nomad
Summer fades into burning autumn skies,
Long-haired maidens dance through the amber brome,
Bought a patch of grass out on the countryside,
Hoping I could find myself at home.

But the open road keeps calling me,
A drifter I was meant to be,
Ramblin’ on from town to town,
Never catch me settling down.

Autumn lurches into wretched winter storms,
Every creature flees the dying fields in fear,
I face the driving snow and harsh north winds,
And wish that I was somewhere far from here.

But the open road keeps calling me,
A drifter I was meant to be,
Ramblin’ on from town to town,
Never catch me settling down.
--
I hope you find, that unnamable something.
I hope you find, that unnamable something.
If you should die, I’ll tell you one thing:
I hope you find, that unnamable something.
--
Staggered back until I hit the bedroom door,
And in the stillness there I made a last resolve,
If I should live to be an elder man or more,
My fate and fortune will be that which I’ve been called.

The open road keeps calling me,
Stranger places I was meant to see,
Feeling trapped within my mind,
Gotta leave before I die.
Track Name: Before The Dawn
See the devil’s children,
Hopping one-way rides,
Congregating in the chapel,
Under black-mass skies.

Cloaked in velvet,
Shrouds of wine,
Snuff out cigarettes,
On their homemade shrine.

Weekend rabble-rousers,
Reining in their holy mess,
Leave a fire burning,
At the hearth of the rat’s nest,

Time to pay the piper,
For the false hope that he’s wrought,
But that beast, he is a liar,
Stealing something never lost.

Wasted youth and turmoil,
A thirst quick to be slated,
They’ll miss the slaughter when it’s gone,
The one they once hated.

And it’s a long way,
Sure is a long way down,
And it’s a long way, yeah,
Sure is a long way down.
Track Name: Mind Control
Don’t waste your time, callin’ out my name,
Two simple words, that I just can’t claim.
You brought me here,
Whispers in my ear.

I was lost, but you found me.
I was lost, but you found me.
I was lost, but you found me.
I was lost, but you found me.

That stony crag, was hard to climb,
But once I reached, the other side,
You held me there,
Spellbound by your stare.

I was lost, but you found me.
I was lost, but you found me.
I was lost, but you found me.
I was lost, but you found me.
Track Name: White Nights
There’s a killer inside of us all, baby
Just longing to be set free,
There’s a mystic inside of us all, darlin’
And that someone is me.
Well I'll tell you one thing, I ain’t
Waiting for the chains to be broken,
Listen, listen,
And I’ll tell you when it’s all over.

There’s a killer inside of your father,
Just longing for a genocide,
Down in the valley a choir is singin’
His cyanide lullaby.
Death tape rollin’ at the podium,
Had enough of this life,
Have no fear, it’s a
Revolutionary suicide.
--
Come, my people, to the Temple,
Come, my people to the city of the white nights.
Come, my people, to the Temple,
Come, my people to the city of the white nights.

Come, my people, to the Temple,
Come, my people to the city of the white nights.
Come, my people, to the Temple,
Come, my people to the city of the white nights.
Track Name: Hell Hath No Fury
She got graveyard eyes,
Cemetery smile,
She'll make you beg for the killing floor,
Oh, she’s the mother of lies.

And I said, ooo child,
Hell hath no fury, like a woman scorned.

Hear her bangin’ at the front door,
Stone’s throw away,
She wants to take you to the boneyard,
For a permanent stay.

And I said, ooo child,
Hell hath no fury, like a woman scorned.
And I said, ooo child,
Hell hath no fury, like a woman scorned.
---
She’s got you in a sheer panic,
She put the thumbscrews on,
And now you’re sweatin’ out shotgun shells,
No, it won’t be long.

And I said, ooo child,
Hell hath no fury, like a woman scorned.
And I said, ooo child,
Hell hath no fury, like a woman scorned.
Track Name: Forefather
No, I never met a man as much a coward,
Jealous woman got you under her power,
Took a train to Rogers County when I was young,
Just to see where the bad half of my mind come from.
And what I found there was a weak man,
He stared at me with robot eyes so I could understand,
He’d been held under a slave-driver’s thumb,
Couldn’t muster up the strength to run, to run.

Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.

Out on the farm, they’re diggin’ up skeletons,
So keep your secrets to yourself, don’t ask questions,
Or she’ll come around and grab you up by the hand,
Carry you off to die, just like she did, she did my old man.

Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.

Hold a flame to your name,
I’ve removed you from my vein,
There’s no way you could ever hold sway,
Over a father’s legacy.

Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Track Name: Black Hawk
Pale face, don’t bleed me out,
Pale face, don’t bleed me out,
Don’t put my body in the ground.

War horse, with fiery mane,
War horse, with fiery mane,
The only thing I have to my name.

Vengeance, great spirit bring,
Vengeance, great spirit bring,
I want to see that outlaw hang.

Bandit, he stole the lot,
Bandit, he stole the lot,
He wears the moccasins of Black Hawk
Track Name: Acid Tongue
Got an acid tongue, never set it free,
It was awful quiet, ‘til you turned on me,
I held you, my friend, in high regards,
But you were just another, joker in the cards.

There ain’t no mongrels here,
Let sleeping giants lie.

Tell me, what did I do, to put my trust in these,
Fools who do me wrong? Liars, wolves, and thieves?
Lord, I have my faults, if I may tell the truth,
Oh, that old hate, has begun to brew.

And there ain’t no mongrels here,
Let sleeping giants lie.
There ain’t no mongrels here to fear,
Let sleeping giants lie.
--
Golden sister, where have you gone?
Crimson brother, it’s been too long,
I'd hate to mourn you, I feel that it's wrong,
I have less emotion than I ever let on.
Track Name: Down 75
Broke down in a ghost town; last train left the station,
Long-faced and lonely, bearing a grave sin.
Out on the prairie, the spook-lights shine,
Lighting up the faces of the dead, the losing kind.
--
Black night on the boulevard, don your streetlight halo.
Take a spin on my medicine wheel, but stay off the main roads.
Empty streets and tumbleweeds, the only company.
Prying eyes and whisp'ring lies, you crank that skeleton key.
