Track Name: Hand Of Destroyer
I saw your flash
Like the knife of a killer
With your glassy eyes
And a mouthful of silver, oh
I saw your hand
Like the hand of destroyer
I forgot all the time
Yet I could never ignore you

You traded skins
With the friends that you made
You brought from the ground
With a silver spade, oh
Your shadows cut
Just like daggers do
Or the brazen horn
Of the caribou

I heard your voice
Coming out of the darkness
Saying, “Your heart is my home,
And home’s where the heart is.” oh
I saw your hand
Like the hand of destroyer
Cause with that hand in yours
Well, it will surely destroy you.

Now I hear you play for the daughter
Of the captain whose boat is going down
While that ship sinks under the water
We will sing, we will sing, we will sing, oh

And we will sing for the light
in the hearts of the people i know
we will sing for our homes
Ya, we will sing for the light
in the hearts of the people i know
we will for our homes, OH!
Track Name: Vulture Vulture
Fix my eyes
Cause they’re broken
Your eyes will never see again
No matter whose head you put them in
 
There are black birds
From your mouth
So tear their wing off
and hold your heart to the south
 
I’ve got a heart that will never last
And you’ve got good friends
I know, I know
But I’ve got your wings
And I’ve got your hands
But you’ve got my eyes
oh I know, oh I know
