Take a shot of whiskey just to kiss your precious troubles behind
Take a breath and count to death and last a little longer this time
Oh, it’ll drain yo...

The Anchored Gypsy
The Mercy Killers
Broken shields and broken windows
Wind is whistling through these lead holes
It’s the only song I’ve ever known.
Pick up sheets and paste together
Shelter from this shoddy weather
As it falls, this rusted city moans
Locked inside these gilded cages
Worlds of wonder lost to ages
Faded scrawl is screaming for revenge.
I pick up sheets and paste together
Words that bind by broken leather
Come, they call, celebrate our end.
Truth is crying out; this is a ghost that’s still alive.
Each crumbling road is laced with fading footprints of the blind.
Come they say, just follow us down
Secrets lie here beneath grey ground
Death is reward, blood is payment
Try to reforge steel and pavement
So tell me, sell me, what are you dealing?
Somewhere I have what you’re needing
I’ve got every drug you’ve ever seen, ever wanted.
Taste my tempting lips of pleasure,
Give me pain, I’ll sell you treasure
Men have fallen, men of might,
Bleeding for my bags of pyrite.
