Track Name: Tusk
scarce rays of our sun
did not burn until the gold on your crown
mirrored them to focus
so to the sound of all the tusk
carved into piano keys
worn to ivory dust
I scream out to the scattering locusts
this is the dead end
of our lonesome road
goodbye ill luck farewell just go
my worn swords won't cut your words
lamentations for your last world
your something new
and something old
something blue and green
and something sold
may the red empty
become your quick drop and certain stop
Track Name: Lonesome Road
he fought his way from inside out
it took some time
now his heart has thawed
hold his red hands
look at his mean face
wonder about a man who's gone so wrong
made all mistakes
on his lonesome road
for whom for what or why he thawed
he will never show
you don't see and you don't know
remember that his journeys
will never let him go
when his path is broken
and his heart is frozen
leave him walking
on his lonesome road
Track Name: Teele
(in Estonian)
kui ajuloputuskast ei voola tühjaks
öökullideks maskeerunud metslaste eest
iiri käeraudades jäärapeatult
lahkume nagu täid surnult
hulbime süveneva rahulolematuse vees
nagu sügavas jões
mis on pinnal rauge
aga rahutu sees
kes jaksavad kanda saab raskem koorem
võime pageda metsa aga meist ei saa loomi
langeme inimsusest mööda v
alikud veavad kuristikku pooduna
upume asumise seadusetuses
eneseväärikuse lastebasseinis
pooduna vabadusest
mis on kandmata karistustikku
taas kord saab öeldud
enam kunagi ei ela me näljas
seljad sirged ei paindu põlenud rukkiväljal
me meel on harjunud hanguma
ja soontes voolab jää
ning rinnus harva valu teeb
vaid terav paepanga äär
Track Name: KAT
forever with no teeth
a school of jawless sharks
disarmed against a sea of trouble
sinking in the rubble
of the children's pool
of their self-esteem
lice grown in a device always cool
rolling two-sided dice taking it slow
crawl home town boys
when they breed
they inspire when we breed
we transpire
feel for children with no hunger
wonder monger working longer
as masters every day
they dwell on why
should one slave away
mere shadows without blades
evolutionary downgrades
space for AIDS
Track Name: Mutiny, Profit
step up distant observers
close in to be the problem
there can be no slaves
but they still act like masters
rootless goddamn bastards
freedom and courage
is men's getting gunned
it's being fucked before you begin
we rarely win
but this time yes we can
brother against another really
brother against another
don't shit monger
small minds with big fists someone will profit
small minds with big fists fight for someone's benefit
two wrongs both alike in dignity
in fair East-Europe
where we lay our scene
from ancient grudge breaks a new mutiny
where civil blood paints every house unclean
