Written by Charles Shoemake


I want to stay nice, I've spent alot of time
On the dead end streets, in my favorite world
Sinners to the table
Time to reclaim that pile of gold
Taking what you want is just another way of losing your control
Send her down the river
If you're so concerned about her soul
Wading, in drowning waters, 'cause she's lost the will to row

Chorus: Remember, that we all control the ban
Forever, we lay up inside the hand
Evil, delusions of the grand
Blinded, by the blonde upon the head
The blue eyes of the dead

Beating every Pilgrim
Cast your net upon, where the buffalo roam
Feeding upon some carcass in a world you'll never own
Bleeding every seedling, believing every lie that you've ever been told
Impeding, keeps repeating, will the people ever grow


Repeat 1st
I wanna get it straight, before it's too late
I don't want to wait
On the dead end streets of an alternate world

Crumbling, crooked chimneys
Leaving every child with a lump of coal
Marching, are you sleeping?
Time to wake your bones
