Track Name: Slow Descent
I fall asleep and dream of violence
Missing scalps and gunshot wounds
I can't blame it on coincidence
that I wake up next to you

Two vultures circling one another
waiting on the other to croak
But if you fill your beak with my feathers
I hope they stick in your throat

Not until you see me dead will you stop to take a rest
Pull your trophy from my head, evening redness in the west
Not until I see you dead will I stop to catch my breath
Setting fire to the bed, evening redness in the west

I fall asleep and dream of the womb
like a shower in the dark
Or the total stillness of the tomb
silent, save the song of a lark

But I wake up still next to you
reeking like musket powder
The lark flings itself from the coop
shot rings out from the tower

Not until you bring me death will you spend a night in bed
Smell the sulfur on your breath, evening redness in the west
Not until I bring you death will a pillow meet my head
Sun begins its slow descent, evening redness in the west
