Track Name: To Live is to Bleed
There were three men came out of the west
Their fortunes for to try
These three men made a solemn vow
John Barleycorn must die
They've plowed, they've sewn, they've harrowed him in
Threw clods upon his head
Till these three men were satisfied
John Barleycorn was dead

They let him lie for a long, long time
Till the rains from Heaven did fall
When Sir John sprang his head
Sir John amazed them all
They made him lie till midsummer's day
Till he looked both pale and wane
Then Sir John grew a long, long beard
And Sir John became a man

They hired men with the scythes so sharp
To cut hm off at the knee
They rolled and tied him round the waist
Serving him most barbarously
They hired men with the sharp pitchforks
To prick him to the heart
But the loader served him worse than that
For he's bound poor John to the cart

They've wheeled him round and round the field
Till they came into a barn
And there they made their solemn oath:
John Barleycorn must die
They hired men with the crab tree sticks
To split him skin from bone
But the miller served him worse than that
For he ground John between two stones

Beer in the barrel whiskey in the glass
But John, with his nut brown glow
Proved the strongest man at last
John Barleycorn would not die
Now the huntsmen can't hunt the fox
Nor loudly blow his horn
Tinker can't mend fence nor pots
Without good 'ol John Barleycorn
Track Name: Kept Death Busy
I know why we bleed hate
We must suffer disorder
I know why we don't wait
We have the same disorder

Heard about a murder most foul
Ain't so foul to me
Heard about a murder most foul
Ain't so foul to me

Kept death busy (and left a scar)

My best hostage is gone
It is a cycle of prey
My best hostage is non
It is a scar of prey

Heard about a murder so foul
Ain't so foul to me
Heard about a murder so foul
Ain't so foul to me

Kept death busy (it left a scar)
Track Name: Discipline Man
Went to hear the man sing his song
Of life and death on earth so long
T'was a tale of joy and sorrow
But with no hope for tomorrow

Love and hatred, pleasure and pain
With a firm faith in this day's reaign
A disciplined man would listen to the man
Listen to the man, I'm a discipline man

I watched his face as he formed words
About spirits who fly as high as birds
The words poured out as water falls
So would my fate be a kick in the balls

A disciplined man would listen to the man
Listen to the man, I'm a discipline man
Listen to the man, I'm a disciplined man
Listen to the man, I'm a discipline man

About the days of my forgotten past
I knew this day would be my last
About the days of my forgotten past
I knew this day would be my last

I jumped ahead to escape my fate
And ignore it all till it's too late
I'd heard him in life, I'd hear him in death
Laid down by his grave, though so late

A dispilined man would listen to the man
Listen to the man, I'm a discipline man
Listen to the man, I'm a disciplined man
Listen to the man, Im a discipline man
Track Name: Defy the Lie
Treetops silhouette against the sky
Now blackened with curtains of night
Darkness conceals nocturnal fowl
That prowl and raze in their night flight

Defy, defy, infecting the lie
Crouching, waiting to repay
Defy, defy, defy the lie
Defy, infecting the lie

Silence is broke by staggered footsteps
One marauder lone roaming the night
Crouching, waiting, quivers with fright
Awaiting an oncoming raid

Meeting is bloody, these two shadows lie
One falls and payment is made

It's a dark trade

Defy, defy, infecting the lie
Crouching, waiting to repay
Defy, defy, defy the lie
Defy, infecting the lie
Track Name: OOD (Ogre of Death)
There is a darkness
A warm viscous feel
Like an evil flow
From an Angela Blake

Wolf-like child-packs
Howling moon claw
Shining rune eye
Bright beacons gaze

Lairs still in lie
In cold noon high
Blood of Dramaemus
Lord of ripened rye

One Bloody Skull
One Ogre of Death
Don't let things these
Lurk corner's dark

The Ogre of Death
Howling from the top of his world:

Come all ye faithful
For tonight we feast

He's an old ghost at play
