The Dear Hunter

Ouroboros

I bet you thought that you'd succeed
Pulling the wool right over me
Hard to believe this snake stayed in the grass
Just long enough to catch the rabbit's feet
With telescoping glances, hands romanced, enticing you to keep
Laboring against the clock in spite of secrecy
You couldn't know, revealed itself to me
The second you decided to compete
 
I fell down and I fell apart
'I never wanted to hurt no one, I never wanted to be your city's son'
Then I cried out to his crooked heart
'I never wanted to hurt no one... no one but you'
 
I bet you thought that you could breathe
A satisfied sigh of relief
A terrible thing, forgetting where you came from
Or have you trouble when you fall asleep?
I’ve seen you fabricate, manipulate and here, you masquerade
But if we're poaching ghosts, you know I’ve got a few that I would raise
Settle yourself; as long as I’m protected
You can bet your secret's safe with me
 
I fell down and I fell apart
'I never wanted to hurt no one, I never wanted to be your city's son'
Then I cried out to his crooked heart
'I never wanted to hurt no one... no one but you!'
 
Lost my soul in the place of the great deceiver
Foolish hearts led foolish plans awry; they told me:
'Don't veer far from your home, try never to leave her'
Near, I landed; here I’ll live and die
Traveled too far from the River's side
 
But it wasn't long before I felt nothing below me
And all of the ground I thought I’d gained, taken away
I thought I was strong, not strong enough, my mettle was bending
Foolish plans kissed foolish hearts goodbye
Traveled too far from the River's side
 

A Night on the Town

I've been misplaced in so many ways
Broken battlegrounds, hiding veils of delicate deceit
Yet here I breathe
Teeth still gleam from holy water
While millions of lambs migrate to the slaughter
My head in a bag and my hands are bound to my feet
And voices sing
 
'Were we erased like common thieves
Tossed in a cell to feast with the fleas
All because we never had written a word.'
 
What will I see, tonight in these eyes
And what will I know when the morning comes
What will I see, tonight in these eyes
And what will I know when the morning comes
 
Must we remind of exchanges existing so long ago
Would we arrive at agreeable musings
Sentimental or just confusing
We lost what we had but we took it back
Friends in the gutter, enjoy one another
Just give yourself to the dust and the dirt where you stand
 
What will I see, tonight in these eyes
And what will I know when the morning comes
What will I see, tonight in these eyes
And what will I know when the morning comes
 
I'm not who you think I am
And even if I thought you'd known
I never would have told you so
And more alarming
I would have done the very same
Would have stole more than your name
Would have cursed and brought the world on your shoulders
I was in the wrong place
At the right time
 
And what's the worst I'd see
By giving myself to the earth below me
Not knowing how far I'd fall, by casting away the ordinary
Just how long can I stay in illusions formed here long before me?
And how long can I breathe this stolen breath here underneath?
 
There's that subtle smile that did me in
She moves...
An agony reminds where I've been
She breathes
'I'd never let this happen again.'
 
Where's your heart?
Mimicking the patriarch
 
She's naive...
 

Go Get Your Gun

Go get your gun, get your gun, and let's find out what it does
Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot
We haven't won, and if we win, and if the morning light sets in
We've cheated fate again
 
And to those who die, please try to understand
That for those who die, we try the best we can
With our one foot in the grave
While the other one's kickin' its way right down to hell
 
Go get your gun, get your gun, imposing penance one by one
You've got a virtue in a vice, it forces fate, you're taking lives
With all the history to guide, you've got a passion in those eyes
So aim it straight and true
 
And to those who die, please try to understand
That for those who die, we try the best we can
With our one foot in the grave
While the other one's kickin' its way right down to hell
 
Now, when this is over
Then, we'll raise a glass
Straight up to the sun
With our one foot in the grave
While the other one's kickin' its way right down to hell
 
Go get your gun, get your gun, let's find out what it does
Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot
We haven't won and if we win, and if the morning light sets in
We've cheated fate again
 
And to those who die, please try to understand
That for those who die, we try the best we can
And to those who die, please try to understand
That for those who die, we try the best we can
With our one foot in the grave
While the other one's kickin' its way right down to hell
 

The Oracles on the Delphi Express

Stick with us, throw your morals out the door
You aren't in the land of the river and the lake no more
Makeshift schemes, we've got plenty here for you
Lock away your dreams and throw away the key
 
You've been stuck in the middle of patience and animosity
With a lust for solidity, and a cryptic history your luck's running thin
 
Crimson hands, brandish wounds which masquerade
If you flee from grace your souls cannot be saved
Big steam ships, exits illustrate the flaw
Don't be ashamed of your amour faux pas
When the bombs go off you'll know right where you are
 
You've been stuck in the middle of patience and animosity
With a lust for solidity, and a cryptic history your luck's running thin
 
You've been stuck in the middle of patience and animosity
With a lust for solidity, and a cryptic history your luck's running thin
