Track Name: Fallow
Hear me now
Take heed the signs
These desert days have left me all but blind
I'm waiting in the fallow for something to grow

No, it won't be long
Each bud will turn and shun
The wounded light from a dying sun
Loons lost upon the plateau
Each forced to eat crow
Each forced to eat crow

Oh baby I been waiting
I rent my bones
I pawned my teeth
I put the kids up as collateral
I part-exchanged my beliefs
But there was no seventh day
The plan was ill-conceived
Bathe me in the flames my love
Choke me in the weeds
Choke me in the weeds
Choke me in the weeds
Choke me

Can I get a pardon?
Can I get free?
I left my wallet in my other coat
I lost count my rosary
Beyond the garden wall
Pure ash and sweet debris
Bathe me in the flames my love
Choke me in the weeds
Choke me in the weeds
Choke me in the weeds
Choke me
Track Name: Pale Horse
Born to be
Default, ambulant

Carrion
Remains of our covenant

Trace the fall
Re-entry burns

Lucifer sleeps
He will return

I fear your light
To hear you call
To be of consequence at all
Revere the knight
Murder the fool
Watch each son align

It could be over
Right from the start
Disease
Borne inside the seed

Virgin lands
God given, promised

A pale horse
Stalks through the forest

The molten cast
It claims each name

Each brand we plant
Will bare our shame

I fear your light
To hear you call
To be of consequence at all
Revere the knight
Murder the fool
Watch each son align

It could be over
Right from the start
Disease
Borne inside the seed

Revere the Knight
Murder the fool
Watch each son align
