Silver Mt Zion - Black Waters Blowed/Engine Broke Blues

Song Rating: 7.85/10

Song lyrics:

I found a penny where the black waters blowed
A dagger, a crown, or a home in the snow
And scraps, soil, and sentries for the children below
Theres ones that are liars and ones that dont know

Theres ones that are shattered, while others get saved
I will not be buried in my mothers grave
Im a wing in the water between the dull waves
Theres ones that are shattered, and others get saved

The gallows was hungry and tawdry and slow
And fists full of candy for the children below
The bones of a horse, knee-deep in snow
Theres ones that are liars, and ones that dont know

We go too slow, too slow. Ignore
We go too slow, too slow. Hurrah
We go too slow, too slow. Ignore

It was no joke
When your engine broke
And the monsters came abrawling

Those bankers always win
And this trouble that youre in
Is not your own


Were each and all this fallen

Feathers in your spokes
Motherf** these weathered yokes
I wish we could
But worries always calling

Thieves in our clothes
Trophies for their trifle
They dont know
Their glorys only vapors

And pennies for our pride
Goddamn these tired eyes
Im so in love
With all our stillborn labors

No homeland for the gentle-hearted
Lack and tears for the young departed
For all the good they never started

Building train wrecks in the setting sun
Building train wrecks in the setting sun
Building train wrecks in the setting sun (in the setting sun)
Building train wrecks in the setting sun (in the setting sun)
Were building train wrecks in the setting sun
In the setting sun
