Olga Kivius Every time if I begin to listen to this album then I listen to it at least 3 times )))
Hypnotizing vocals, experimental sound, dark lyrics which increases the mood of blues plus banjo as the point of folk and the intentional using of off-kilter melodies makes this album very attractive.
In addition, partly it reminds me the experimental works of Tom Waits )) Favorite track: Pacific.

Track Name: Happy Hour Down At Sams Tar Pit
It's happy hour down at the tar pit
the heat'll set your drink on fire,
be you diamond miner or sulphurous queen
you better watch your step when you
leave.

I was born from ash and stone
now i'm ready to return
slather me up or oil me down til i'm
ragwood and bone.

Now it's happy hour down at sams tar pit
when you hear that siren sound
grab your finest mug and come running
to scrape that good blood off the ground.

I was born from ash and stone
now i'm ready to return
slather me up or oil me down til i'm
ragwood and bone
dry moss and stone,
ragwood and bone.
Track Name: Godlust
Tighten those treachery drums
string 'em up 'til they scream.
Bolder than brass you lifted your arse
for the whole world to feel.

I've never been one to cut and run
but i've bought a switch and a plane
and i'm never coming back again
i'd rather put out my eyes than set sight on the spires
of smoketown again.

All your life stares with some wolfish glare
a gleam that glints through a branch-lit sky
now heaven sent a weight to bend
crescent your moon and your beds.

But I've never been one to cut and run
i've bought a switch and a plane
and i'm never coming back again
i'd rather put out my eyes than set sight on the spires
of smoketown again.

i'd rather put out my eyes than set sight on the spires
of smoketown again.
Track Name: Drum for After
These bones
don't know what to do
These Bones don't know what to do
when they closed the lid
they locked me in with you.

These tomes will shatter the new
these tomes will shatter the new
Your words bind me in
Your words bind me in
and lock me in with you.

These bones
don't know what to do
These Bones don't know what to do
when they closed the lid
they locked me in with you.
Track Name: Under Your Shadow
Under your shadow
a wave came crashing down
and by a shoreline
you sunk your furrowed brow.

I can't wait, i can't wait no more
I won't wait, i won't wait no more
and i won't shed a tear.

In my dreams i see crystal darts
where your eyes should be
a body all shot through with shards
i was so sure of what i saw in you
i was so sure...but i would check the ground again
before i would say it's rain
i would check the ground again...

Under your shadow
a city sunk below
while pallid shoulders
reflect a fiery glow

I won't leave, i can't leave you now
I won't leave, i can't leave you now
and i won't shed a tear...
Track Name: Inertia, You Moved Me.
Inertia you moved me
in a million different ways
i see the starlight hit your face
i see the moonlight in your eyes and i say...

And i feel a little wine
won't sweep me out to sea this time...

Now you're passing on
you're passing on,
through a parthenon
through a parthenon
you'll burn it to the ground
and you're passing on...

Inertia you moved me
in a million different ways
i see the starlight hit your face
i see the moonlight in your eyes and i say...
Track Name: Penance
I paid penance for
a God of Fire...
Track Name: Pacific
Glow red night
daggers and knives
won't save you from a white gods sheath
take your gold to the mountain man
and he'll wack a way down through the burning trees.

What a wise man can't see,
what a wise man can't see.

I made a flute from a vultures wing
if you prey on me, your bones' gonna sing.
I made a flute from a vultures wing
if prey you on me, your bones' gonna sing.

Armored beasts encircle me
say you you've been dealing magic's girl
i smell it on your teeth,
i say you better go run!
cuz i'll make your bones shake
like the skin of a drum

Like the skin of a drum,
Like the Skin of a drum.

I made a flute from a vultures wing
if you prey on me, your bones' gonna sing.
I made a flute from a vultures wing
if prey you on me, your bones' gonna sing.


I made a flute from a vultures wing
if you prey on me, your bones' gonna sing.
(So let the prison light shine out)
I made a flute from a vultures wing
if prey you on me, your bones' gonna sing
(So let the prison light shine out).
Track Name: Swims Me Here
Sun Baked Clay
The Levees won't break
Charlie's in a wheelbarrow made
of slate.
I put a stone on his coffin baby
i put a stone
so he won't float out,
I put a stone on his coffin
so he won't float out.

With a sazerac rye
and a wave goodbye
on a streetcar flown to the sea
oh my dreams are clammed a 100 feet down
just sitting there waiting for me.
So you'd better watch out,
So you'd better watch out.
The quarter's on fire
with the fires of doubt.
So I put a stone on his coffin baby
i put a stone
so he won't float out,
I put a stone on his coffin
so he won't float out.
Go'n be a cold cold rain
that swims me here
Go'n be a cold cold rain
that swims
me here.
Track Name: Disaster
I want to love you
like a disaster,
fill your cracks up
with molten lava
Your fears enter my heart
But no tears fall from my eyes
all years pass by before them now because
i want to love you
like a disaster,
pull your frame down
in plumes of plaster
Desire's a mushroom cloud
that rains down on me
quietly now, my skin burns
whenever you're around and
i want to love you
like a disaster,
let your waves sweep me off
to ever-after
All moments eclipse
all history undone with one
bat of your eyelids
and i want to love you
like a disaster,
fill your cracks up
with molten lava
make the ground shake
with sighs and laughter
i want to love you,
like a disaster.
