Track Name: Vultures
I'm gonna show you what's cool
I'm gonna handle your horizons

like a dog in a fight

I think you might be underestimating all of my charms
Or maybe I'm just overconfident

I have no accomplishments
that ever brought me anything but oh annihilation

surrender the steel, and now the company kills

oh why is nothing sacred

the kids are on the train, and there (are) vultures taking over the hill


you watch your children hide
no one cries for our rewind

hands in trigger pose
another spirit rises


you shouldn't live so large
while I'm still in the room
[oh they're coming for you]

I hear you counting your fears
I'm estimating their value
[oh what will you do?]

If I could be anything, if only I were anything, I want to be your anything
or nothing at all

I have no accomplishments
that ever brought me anything

but oh annihilation

I surrendered to you, and now your company kills

the kids are on the train, and there (are) vultures taking over the hill
Track Name: The Pass (part one)
oil blackened harvest
lay us down to rest

carry us beyond your seven seas.

no horizon: where time cannot exist:

offer no asylum but retreat.

Come to me, oh, come to me --
I will feed your pain:

Who is come?
Will no one not escape?

a wooden heart dissolves inside the wake.
Track Name: The Pass (part two)
Will we ever be the same
as some forgotten morning we once shared?

We were laughing at our freedom as you told me,
"The master has no plan."

And I felt you growing weaker
as you tied another ribbon around my wrist

Then took me to the pass
to watch the fishermen departing

see you now as some lost part of me
we'll swim to breathe and die inside their nets

'Cuz we have been bound together
in these suspicious times

And we will go down together
in our suspicious times

They said the only answer
you have to radiate your mind

'cuz we can't go on forever
in our suspicious times
Track Name: Faithful Elephants
I'll be your faithful elephants—
and won't drink from the captain's cup /
keeper wash halo / crimson / all we need is a little luck

hid in the flames / the silver spark sheen
melts the dust / and binds to the lung

belly-up and my child is starving
the money’s short and our time is up

blanket hid / a cold drum knocking / the needle burns and pulls you away /paradise is nowhere waiting / another trap with no escape

soaked in the flames / to stop the bleeding /
back to dust / and a burned out lung

belly-up and my child is starving
the money’s short and our time is up

justified my house starving /the money's short and our time is up
