Recorded, Mixed & Mastered by Carl Byers, Clandestine Arts Recordings. Part of upcoming EP "Fates & Tales".


I stumble as I'm walking, climbing over these hills
The sun rises burning, burns away the chill
A bullet tears a hole, and blood drips away
Spirits to comfort the soul, and to take away the pain

Keep on to the horizon, yet keep your look away
Lest your heart won't turn to stone, yet burn into flame
For love stalls your hand, and care averts your senses
Spirits do comfort the soul, and lend a hand to forget

The morning star comes burning, it has come to send me away
I could have almost sneak out in the dark, but it brought my shadow instead
To love I'll cast a rose, may she find it one day
To follow me down the road, or to place it on my grave
