Track Name: Silver Ashes
The road called in
Where have you been
Away from home
Away from sin

A new friend, an old friend
A letter unsent
A love undiscovered
Forever descends

As Silver Ashes stray
I tried to leave you today
As Silver Ashes stray
But I just can’t get away

Devil roads
Paved with crosses
Unrevealed
Their sudden losses

Broken fences
Deep in fog
Thoughts are drifting
Clouds won’t talk

As Silver Ashes stray
I tried to leave you today
As Silver Ashes stray
But I just can’t get away

Track Name: Rocks To My Head
Throwin rocks to my head
Can’t it wait until I’m dead
Now you got me seeing red
All the shit you said
Now I wanna go home
Goin' it alone
Don’t follow me at all
Don’t call me on the phone

In the alleyways when we were so young
Fuckin' everything and everyone
 
Throwin rocks to my head
I’ve already bled
Take my place instead
Maybe you’ll get what I said
Don’t you wait too long
How can this go on
You know you're so wrong
So so wrong
 
In the alleyways when we were so young
Fuckin' everything and everyone

Throwin' rocks to my head
Can't you wait until I’m dead
You got it all wrong
So so wrong

Track Name: Primitive And Raw
Ain’t not our case
Ain’t not our law
Primitive and Raw
Primitive and Raw

Ain’t not our taste
Ain’t not who we are
We're Primitive and Raw
Primitive and Raw

Ain’t not our crisis
Ain’t not our war
Throwing dice, that’s what fate’s for

Primitive and Raw
 
Ain’t not our thing
Can’t believe what we saw
The bell better ring for the getaway car
 
Primitive and Raw, that’s what we are
Still ragged, half on the bar
Primitive and Raw
 
Ain’t not our crisis
Aint not our war,
Throwing dice that’s what fate’s for
 
Primitive and Raw

Track Name: Tight As A Fist
I got a curse on myself
I can't blame anyone else
I got bad tendencies
I'll drink the seven seas, drown in stupidity
'Cause there's a fool who lives in me

Tight as a fist, I am … a masochist
I can't resist, cause I'm fucking pissed

I can take the hottest degree
bitchy girlfriend bitchin' at me
I can taste my pain on your lip
Bow down while you're burning me
Smoke this fuckin' effigy
In the end you know we will burn

Tight as a fist, I am … a masochist
I can't resist, cause I'm fuckin' pissed
Tight as a fist, I am...a masochist
I can't resist, cause I'm fuckin' pissed

I can feel the weight deep in my shoulders
I can feel my soul getting harder and colder
I got the covers over my eyes
I can feel the darkness in my mind burning, burning, burning

Tight as a fist, I am … a masochist
I can't resist, cause I'm fuckin' pissed
Tight as a fist, I am … a masochist
I can't resist, cause I'm fuckin' pissed

Track Name: Steer Me
Oh Lord, steer me from the crowd
Am I the one who cried out loud?
I followed their lies
Now I can’t find my way out

I’m down from the pillers
The ashes of doubt
It goes out of sight
I can’t find the light
You can burn me slow
Then throw me away

Fire from above cut me in my heart
Dial me in, I can play your part
Those of us who see the spies
Don’t adjust it we’re television wise
