Track Name: New Beginnings
The sun has left the horizon,To the darkness the light has subdued
We just need to make to day break, Oh Lord that's all we need to do

There's steam rolling off the train tracks, One more cold bitter morn
My eyes grow weary from the sunlight, Just wake me when you hear them blow that horn

Because it northbound to the mountains
And westbound all the way to sea
I put all my trust in the this boxcar
Lord she always takes me where I need to be
I know you'd rather me be staying
But you must know that it's time for me to go
Take these words Oh take this wisdom
As long as there's stars you always have a home

I see shadows of the Sierra in the moonlight, Growing larger with every heartbeat
Like giants they loom over flatland, And pray that they might not wake

These mountains riddled with train tracks, Freckled with abandoned Rail cars
Rusting away under the pine trees, Remind me I'm alone in this word forevermore

Because it's onward to the river
Down this Hill to the banks of stream
Jumping over my own burning bridges
Whatever i need to do to stay free
It's forward to new beginnings
Not all battles are worth being fought
Drink away my homesickness
All this nostalgia good for is rot

The sun has left the horizon, To the darkness the light has subdued
We just need to make to day break, Oh Lord that's all we need to do

There's steam rolling off the train tracks, One more cold bitter morn
My eyes grow weary from the sunlight, Just wake me when you hear them blow that horn

Because it northbound to the mountains
And westbound all the way to sea
I put all my trust in the this boxcar
Lord she always takes me where I need to be
Track Name: Sweet Steel
Rise by the sunset die by the moon
sleepless nights spent inside a dpu
Take to the streets bare feet and sweet release
listen close to these ghosts that hobo symphony
Like spirits we wander vagrant life we do squander
sleeping under bridges I can only hold so much longer
My tired aching feet submit to defeat
hotshot screaming through sweet steel oh save me

So roll me to pine into the oncoming storm
roll me to edge off that north coast shore
I won’t ever cease my wandering I’ll never find my home
My heart lies vagrant rolling down that high mountain road

Rise above the compost that ain’t our destiny
But we’ll search on and on through the rail and seven seas
Fire to your standards death to monotony
Down with the CEOs and the patriarchy
Say farewell to my sorrows as I leave all behind
No time for risk consequence riding that northbound line
My fears and desires lye hand in hand
cursed to roam forever more in this goddamn blackgrass band

So roll me to pine into the oncoming storm
roll me to edge off that north coast shore
I won’t ever cease my wandering I’ll never find my home
My heart lies vagrant rolling down that high mountain road

Off trash, dirt, crust and rail bridges we survive
but don’t care much about surviving I just want feel alive
To my brothers and sister that have fallen far too soon
We rise by the sunset to die by the moon

So roll me to pine into the oncoming storm
roll me to edge off that north coast shore
I won’t ever cease my wandering I’ll never find my home
My heart lies vagrant rolling down that high mountain road
Track Name: Dead Pine
There’s dirt chasing down my gin
Every step I take is the wrong direction
I hope this night comes to an end
Just maybe that might see the sun again
Well I’m trying just to keep myself sane
but keep finding myself stuck in the rain
I’m trying not to take it all in vain
Just to be pulled down under the goddamn train

Woooaah Another sleepless night and a hand full of coal
Woooaah Straight towards that sunset cause there’s nowhere left to go

Well I think that I’m bout fucking done
These mountaintops no-longer hide these field from the sun
Yank the chord start up them old draglines
Slaughter the land burn away the pine
Well I'm walking down a dead end road
Just trying to wear some more holes in my clothes
Demon made off with what was left of our souls
Railroad bull will eat you whole

Chorus

It’s to these coastal skies I loose
Stranded on the shores of Santa Cruz
As rainclouds bout over blue tinted hues
what other choice have I left to choose
As rainclouds bout to wash away my trust in you
what other choice have I left to choose

Chorus

Well I think my times about up
Burning brown rings in this coffee cup
I’m trying not to take it all in vain
Just to be pulled down under the goddamn train
Track Name: Safe to Say
Well it's safe to say that your not just a tie on the tracks that I walk at night
But if you where you'd make me trip and fall back to the start

Back to the start

Well I best be listing for all this world is collapsing around us
Burn all the books and crush the comfort that surrounds us

Fire in the streets let's stoke the flames while it's still standing
Forces that call us to rest grow demanding
It's blood to the Windows down with the gin and we celebrate in the shadow of all our sins
Track Name: Praise the Witch
So fog is rolling in and the sunlight starts to dim
Long gone away from anything near a home
Careful to anger the witch as a suture for your stich
the witch will eat you whole
There ain’t no escape through coal and iron gates
Don’t be fool boy you’d never stand a chance
But don’t find yourself confused don’t get it in your head
because you’ll never have the upper hand

So when that high ball whistle blow we’ll be dancing with our ghosts
Never to return back this road
And when those air brakes set in we’ll be gone before the rising un
Gone before dawn touches your homes
When the moon does rise we run wild through night
Trolls without a bridge to call our own
So praise to the witch screaming six six six
Drenched with blood, but the blood never our own

We don’t pray to no gods no golden gates in the sky
For the witch we died long ago
And at her command we just as quickly stand
her bloodlust hold no bounds
And we scream da da da da da
da da da da da
da da da da da
da da da da and they all drop dead

So when the fever breaks the townsfolk storming to the gate
torches and pitchforks dress the sky
you dare challenge the witch as a suture for your stich
you’ll never make it out alive
When the moon does rise we run wild through night
Trolls without a bridge to call our own
So praise to the witch screaming six six six
Drenched with blood, but the blood never our own

And we scream da da da da da
da da da da da
da da da da da
da da da da and they all drop dead

So when the moon does rise you see why should fear the night
fear the ghosts the goblins and trolls
you dare challenge the witch as a suture for your stich
The witch will eat you whole
When the moon does rise we run wild through night
Trolls without a bridge to call our own
So praise to the witch screaming six six six
Drenched with blood, but the blood never our own
