Track Name: Buried Bones
Dig up your wretched name
Dig up your tired soul
Dig up your wasted mind
Dig up your buried bones

Dig up your ghostly grave
Dig up all that remains
Dig up that six-foot hole
Dig up your buried bones

Unwanted
Abandoned
Been wasted
Abused

Unwanted anymore
Abandoned underground
Been wasted, wasted away
Abused just like the hounds

Hollow feet meet on hollow ground
Wretched face in a wretched town
Getting drained now takes its toll
Put back your buried bones

Put back your wretched name
Put back your tired soul
Put back your wasted mind
Put back your buried bones

Put back your ghostly grave
Put back all that remains
Put it back in that six-foot hole
Put back your buried bones

Track Name: Shipwrecked
Our souls are definitely sinking
Black ocean swallowed us up whole
Our bodies made for drowning
Leaves only ghosts left onboard

This ship is shipwrecked, man overboard
Swim through the bodies to make it ashore

This shit is definitely sinking
All men and women overboard
Take all your knives and put them in the water
Grab all your sheep and keep them afloat

This ship is shipwrecked, man overboard
Swim through the bodies to make it ashore

10,000 feet below, we're in deep

This ship is shipwrecked, man overboard
Swim through the bodies to make it ashore
This ship is shipwrecked, man overboard
A ship with no sailors won't float anymore

Track Name: Piston Machine
Ripped your face off again
Put a needle inside your head
Then I pushed it deep inside
Yellow mustard custard pie

Your fist beats down the door
I wanna know who's coming for more
Tucked you between my thighs
Yellow mustard custard pie

Dig a hole if you want to stay
If you want to stay then dig a hole

Piston machine

Track Name: Drain You
Do me a favor
Put blood back in this body
'Cause I sucked it out last night
Ate flesh, drank blood all night
Until I do it again you're mine
Your blood is mine

I'll sink my teeth right in your neck and drain you
Drain you 'til you die

So do me a favor and I'll spare you
'Cause you see that I didn't mean to
Suck the blood from the one I love
Oh I sucked the blood from the one I love

I'll sink my teeth right in your neck and drain you
Drain you 'til you die

Somebody stop me
I'm getting too thirsty
Sucked the blood from the one I love
Oh I'll suck the blood from the one I love

I'll sink my teeth right in your neck and drain you
Drain you make you mine

Track Name: Lost Desert Souls
We walked a thousand miles of dirty dunes
Pulled out sledgehammers and banged on stone
Black birds kept circling above
We found some buried bones and shot 'em down

Nothing but desert at our feet
Nothing but sand, skulls and dunes
Dry winds blows through cracks in our face
Blistering from the sun
It's only cold when we sleep
We never see the moon
We're lost desert souls on our knees

Tired and deserted we waded through
Pulling teeth and hair out from our arms
Bring back the shadows now
We'll be dead as the desert soon

Only snakes and birds left here
Even the vultures fly with fear
Our souls been buried by the sun
Sun boiling our blood
Sands washed away all of our sins
Sands washed away all of our skin

Blinded by sand
Been buried by the sun
Desert birds hollowed out your head
In the desert all the water's red

Track Name: The War Song
Don't make no mistake
These words are my power now
I'm only doing what I'm told to do

Not giving up
I'm just not fighting you

There's only pressure here

I'm not fighting but I sure will win in the end

Don't make no mistake
These words are my power now
I'm only doing what I'm told to do

Not giving up
I'm just not fighting you

There's only pressure here
Dream the same dream again

There's only me next to you

Don't make no mistake you fucking shit, you piece of shit
I'm only doing what I'm born to do

Not giving up
I'm just not fighting you

There's only me next to you

Lyrics by Sailor Alexander © Ⓟ FFA Music ASCAP 2010
Track Name: Los Buitres
Soaring high over the city
Searching for your decay
Our wings are crooked
Our heads are shaved
Our shadows circle
On your decay

We are the vultures
We're flying your way
We'll hunt you down
Leave your bones on display
No time for begging
Or pleading mercy
We are the vultures
And you are our prey

Give us your punch-meat
Better give it all
We're buying bones now
Selling your soul
We eat the dying
We'll eat the dead
Out in the desert
We'll hollow out your head

We are the vultures
And you are our prey
We'll hunt you down
Leave your bones on display
No time for begging
Or pleading mercy
We eat the dying
The dead and decaying

We are the vultures
You are our prey
Eat your decay

Los buitres

We are the vultures

Track Name: The Ghost
I was walking around
When I saw your ghost
Your face keeps haunting me
Ever since I watched it choke

Hanging from a wire
Underneath a sheet
Underneath are your two legs
Can you see what frightening means

Your ghost's a haunt
Your ghost's a ghoul
Go haunt a prison guard
And his fucking children too

Haunted by a hollow soul
Turns your skin white and old
Visions in your mind
This ghost won't let you go

I was walking around
When I saw your ghost
Your soul keeps haunting me
Ever since I watched it choke

Hanging from a wire
Underneath a sheet
Underneath are your two legs
Can you see what frightening means

Your ghost's a haunt
Your ghost's a ghoul
Go haunt a prison guard
And his fucking children too

The ghost that haunts this land

Lyrics by Sailor Alexander © Ⓟ FFA Music ASCAP 2010
Track Name: Been Blown To Shreds
No hands, no feet, no face, no eyes
No teeth, no tongue, no legs, no thighs
No neck, no hair, no arms, no head
No mouth, no ears

Been blown to shreds

No ankles, no knees, no fingers, no toes
No nails, no lips, no dick, no tits
No heart, no lungs, no stomach, no guts
No brain, no soul

Been blown to shreds

Watch your step
Set off that mine
You'll trip that switch
And get blown to bits

Been blown to shreds

Lyrics by Sailor Alexander © Ⓟ FFA Music ASCAP 2010
Track Name: Sassafras Song
Went to the edge today
All the streets in disarray
Sea burning like the sun
My sassafras is a loaded gun

All the while you just run in circles
All the while my shadow moves closer
Proving you wrong, keep holding on
I march on with my sassafras songs

Pulling back that arrow trigger
Shooting down vultures for dinner
Living life here on this edge
I'm Sassafras and I hunt the dead

All the while you just run in circles
All the while my shadow moves closer
Proving you wrong, keep holding on
I march on with my sassafras songs

You choose the land
I sail the sea
You choose to drown

You choose the fool
Hell will help you fail
You stay the fool

You choose to sleep
I'm in your dreams
You're losing sleep

You choose to burn
I lit the flame
You'll fucking burn

March on!
