Track Name: Epic of Schwillgamesh
pass me that whiskey
before I go insane
whether your with me or not
I'm getting on that train
cause the demons in my head are screaming
I'm drowning them in bourbon
and the lesson I'm learning
I hope I never forget
but the way I've been living and drinking
that aint to sure of a bet

we knows these roads
and we road these rails
in n out of jail cells
and 48' wells
53 times this year, I've come so near
to falling apart
mending myself together I havent got far
well I cant keep a steady hand
in a boxcar

to the engineers that drive me
from mind state to state
well I hope you dont mind
a little bit of extra weight
on your mind
to the railroad bulls that patrol
the old rusty freight
well I got myself a gift
it a brand new can of paint
and it might be your trainyard
but thats my train
and it might be your trainyard
but thats my fucking train

couple our knuckles together and lets start rolling
couple our knuckles together and lets start pulling
crack the lid off the bottle and lets start pulling
tie the rope around his neck and lets start pulling
pull the emergency brake
until the rails are red and glowing
smoking like an old steam train
smoking like an old steam train
Track Name: Steel and Smoke
blowing smoke
and chasing steel
sometimes freedom
we must steal for it to feel real
waiting on the low hum roll slow
who would pay to see how smooth it rolls
breathe deep
into the lungs
freedom tastes
just like the sun on your tongue
songs are sung but wars are never won
if we are one why cant we stare
down the barrel of this gun
and oh these walls
some are bricks and some are alcohol
some of them we cant even see at all
some are hate, ignorance and rage
either way we lock ourselves
in our own fucking cage

play your role, burn more coal
the whole trainload full
gag and choke on stagnant smoke
the burning of the ancient bones
wont you let this monster
roll across the prairies wide
iron, steel and diesel dreams
mountain, steal my breath but not my life

cold wind blows
pick your car and count the bolts
kill the crops
dig the soul outta mountain tops
happiness is a cold, cold gutter
air brakes scream and engines sputter
sister brother tell me where did we get lost?
Track Name: Let it Rain
theyll be coming
on a wagon
theyll be coming
on a train
theyll be coming
even though they know they know
that it might rain

and well sing
let it rain water fall onto my head
let it rain water fall onto my head
let it rain water fall onto my head
for without this water we would be dead

theyll be running
wild in the streets
theyll be running
from the riot police
theyll be running
even though they see they see
theres no such thing as peace

and well sing
let it rain water fall onto my head
let it rain water fall onto my head
let it rain water fall onto my head
for without this water we would be dead

and well sing
let it rain water fall onto my head
let it rain water fall onto my head
let it rain water fall onto my head
for without this water we would be dead
Track Name: Memorium
everything is a memory
a remembrance of who we used to be
but who are we now
a memory
well it never set never set nobody free
moment fleeting, heavy breathing
streaming serenity flood the mind
shaking vibrations of passion and pain
the midnight moon, well it rises high
in the ancient sky
illuminating a new waking tide
a breath of a moment on meteor earth
fresh, silent rebirth

grow tall with the trees, be humble as the seeds
grow tall with the trees, be humble as the seeds
grow tall with the trees, be humble as the seeds
grow tall
X2

sprouting truth, a crisp clean validity
inhale through the lung of humanity
foreign energies appear violet
in the deep dark forest of the night

the illuminate the darkness
one must look to a world beyond ours
or wait until morning
but mourning is for those in loss
i will seize the blackness
the deepest, darkness
all colors exist
all consuming

to truly see, one must learn to be
the see truth truly, one must close their eyes

and i am not perfect, you are not perfect
but we are absolute
X3

everything is destiny
a reminder of who were supposed to be
but who are we now
were destiny
it always sets always sets always sets us free
Track Name: Travel On
We've seen east, we've seen west
north to south we've been arrested
i detest this boring life that you expect of me
we will travel on, we will travel on
trying our damndest to be free
scratch my song on a concrete wall
with a broken bottle of alcohol
freedom scribed on bathroom stalls
but no one gives a shit
just piss away the boring day
dream away these walls of grey
and you wonder why the fuck it is were screaming?
maybe we'ed all be better off if we were asleep and dreaming.
happiness is a funny thing, comfortably complacent
im only happy when i spent my last dollar and fifty cents
on tall cans of social lubrication

fuck it all fuck this system, fuck the boring iron wall
fuck yer laws and institutions, these buildings are pollution
fuck you all, fuck your schisms, fuck this boring concrete wall
sittingonthiscot fuckthecops fuck it all let it all rot
let it rot
why not?

when all we have left is our stories
when all we have left is our songs
when all we have left is each other
We Will Travel On....
Track Name: Train That Can Fly (Written by Tomas Garreton)
you wake up in the morning
to find yourself blind
searching for something
they call peace of mind
but your looking at the world
through everyone elses eyes

i know that your just trying to survive
lie, steal, cheat, kill, anything
just to stay alive
but your looking at the world
through everyone elses eyes

and you know these trains they roll by all night
i once heard a story of a train that could fly
when this lonely night is over you will find

you wake up in the morning
to find yourself blind
searching for something
they call peace of mind
but your looking at the world
through everyone elses eyes

i know that your just trying to survive
lie, steal, cheat, kill, anything
just to stay alive
but your looking at the world
through everyone elses eyes

and you know these trains they roll by all night
well im gonna find me a train that can fly
when this lonely night is over you will find
