Track Name: Pitchforks
PITCHFORKS

There’s a devil in me
Am I lost am I free?
I’m defected it seems
No more pressures on me

Not so odd
This power failure
Another part of the scheme
A broken part another dream

There’s a devil in me
When I think of all the things we can do
Feel the rush hear the screams
But is it real is it really the truth?

You’re a god
And they’re your saviors
We both know what it means
When they’re holding out their pitchforks to you

Now you can head any direction you want
Cuz they’re holding out their pitchforks for you

HIPSTER SLAVES

Why are we making plans
To chase the aliens
Even tho we all know what the price is?
If there’s nothing wrong
If our power’s strong
How come we’re slaves to our own devices?

In over our heads
Or is it the drugs instead?

When the servers go down
And the server’s not found
Well you might as well drown me in the lake
Cuz you’re the one that’s getting over
All the rovin that you did before was fine
But now that you’re mine
You’re gonna have to learn to live with
Hipster Slaves

There was a thunderstorm
Then they shot me in the back
While I was playing pool
I stole their color forms
Cuz I didn’t want to get all caught up
In their code of cool

Then the servers went down
Spades went into the ground
Digging up dirt that we were saving for your grave
Cuz you’re the one that’s getting older
All the rovin that you did before was fine
But now that you’re mine
You’re gonna have to learn to live with
Hipster Slaves

Do you need more time to be brave?
“I need a little more time”
She said “I need a little more time”
She said “I need a little more time”
Then she left
“I need a little more time”
Then she wept

Track Name: Near Dark
NEAR DARK

Your eyes glow bright
Underneath a desert sky
I can spend my days waiting for you
Before you take my body away

We gotta keep our heads

Sunlight
I just wanna take one last bite
Time to put on your poker face
Cuz we’re gonna burn down the place

We gotta keep our heads

No matter how high we raise the stakes
We’re making lines that lead us straight into the fire
I know you’re dying to escape your fate
Before your chances all expire
After all the horrors we have seen

We gotta keep our heads

Everybody sucks sooner or later
i’m ready to make my change
