Rising Son 03:39
Rising Son Vile violation Sins against my nation Trying not to crack First they force it on you, then they take it back Taking it back, taking it back from me… Extermination Hard not to care none I fight to death Leave you in your blood, then we're coming back again (chorus) This ain't Oklahoma And I was here long before ya Mistress Darkness has come And when the night is done I'm the rising son No reservations Or pagan adulation Freedoms got to live Flesh and blood and bones is all I got to give This ain't South Dakota And I ain't gonna roll for ya The sky says your time has come And when the night is done I'm the rising son (break) You tried some force, tried to get away What'd you win? Not enough to say In the clear, think you're gettin' by? Cross yourself, snivelers always seem to die This land ain’t your land, this land is my land From Oglala to Ouachita The ancestors of the First Nations Were never made for reservations (chorus) This ain't Oklahoma And I was here long before ya Mistress Darkness has come And when the night is done I'm the rising son This ain't South Dakota And I ain't gonna roll for ya The sky says your time has come And when the night is done I'm the rising son Taking it back, taking it back from you…

Lady Judas 04:14
Lady Judas Up from hell only 'bout a day Found a soul achin' and in pain I will be his Magdalene, got to show he's strugglin' Wastin' time waitin' on a saint Dig a grave and fly away Cuz it's the way my life's been a-rollin' I don't want it no more I can't take it no more (chorus) I saw an angel through the ceiling She took my fear and she nailed it to the floor I made a vow to start kneeling I got to say she's about to seize all Time to take a vow and consecrate Using skin and motion as my bait The cauldron is a-bubblin’ Got to go and show him sin Lucifer just don’t want to wait… Saw her and started reeling She took me down and started double dealing Said get ready for some dark times Time to pay for my crimes When his faith’s lost all meaning And the Fates were taken as a sign Once his hope starts receding I’ll be his dark and bloody valentine (break) Down the road we go, down the road In the cold she grows, in the cold Not for jail, not for sale, not for hell Down the road we go No fears, no tears No cares, so unaware Bring your pride and come inside Down the road we go I just can’t stop the feeling That we crossed some cautionary line She made Hell seem appealing I’ve seen the light for the very last time Now we spend time dreaming Of all sins and imaginary As the smoke clears we’re seeing All the saints and angels redefined
