This track was recorded as part of the Blood will Out Sessions and unfortunately wasn't finished in time to make it on the album. Partly based on Cormac McCarthys 'Blood Meridian'


The mirror cracked from side to side
She looked down from a reddened sky
Proclaim when you place your dagger
For lives will change through War and Anger

The men they rode, turned black in the sun
Their faces pale the blood on their clothes
A witness to weapons the blunt face of fear
They rode through the dust and smelt the fear

Lambs lost on the mountain, they cry
Sometimes comes the mother, sometimes the wolf


released February 19, 2014
