about

PRINCES, PAUPERS, THIEVES is about trudging through the blurry lines between rich & poor, good & evil, hope & despair. The album asks questions about self-worth, identity, and the ways in which humanity cheapens itself.

Track Name: Gethsemane
Wake up my brothers
The wicked hour arrives
Farewell my brothers
I'll greet you after the night

Hello my brothers
You come at me with your swords
Farewell my brother
You're killing me with your kiss
Track Name: Princes, Paupers, Thieves
We're burning under city skies
We slumber here beneath the night
With forever in our sights
Straining to see the fading light

We'll dine with princes, paupers, and thieves
We'll drink with harlots, whores, and kings
'Cause in the end we're the least of these

For now we wait here in between
As we cross these dying seas
Here where even cynics dream
Straining to see the fading beams

We'll dine with princes, paupers, and thieves
We'll drink with harlots, whores, and kings
'Cause in the end we're the least of these
Track Name: Gomer's Breed
She trades her charm for cheaper things
She's got no time for diamond rings
She fakes her way through everything
Feigning a smile from ten to three

She lays with whoever pays
She loves whoever gives enough

They come and go as they please
She fakes her love for a fee
They burn her up like gasoline
She gives them everything they see

She lays with whoever pays
She loves whoever gives enough

We sons and daughters of Gomer's breed
We live like slaves though we are free
Our eyes are fine but we can't see
We keep believing fallacies

We lay with whoever pays
We love whoever gives enough
Track Name: Atmosphere
You fell into a broken love
But we built these towers from the mud
And we feel something over us
And we feel it falling over us

It's in the atmosphere, we feel it everywhere
It's in the atmosphere, we feel it everywhere
It's in the atmosphere
It's in the atmosphere

They've made such a mess of us
But we built these castles from the dust
And we feel something over us
And we feel it falling over us

It's in the atmosphere, we feel it everywhere
It's in the atmosphere, we feel it everywhere
It's in the atmosphere
It's in the atmosphere
Track Name: Sins And Songs
Can you find me here where sins and songs collide?
Can you find me here while it's bright behind my eyes?
Can you find me here before we're crushed beneath the tide?
Can you find me here while it's bright beyond the light?
Track Name: Fire Against The Grave
We're breathing and feeling but not alive
We're fading and sleeping but not alive
We've done this, made this mess but we're not done
We're waking, remembering who we are

We're fire, bright burning fire
Burning down the hades gates
We're rain, hard falling rain
Falling hard on winter's pain
We're blood, bright crimson blood
Bleeding hatred into love
We're death, unrelenting death
With our fire against the grave

The grave is retreating so come alive
The dark is receding so come alive
We've done this, made this mess and we're not done
We're waking, remembering who we are

We're fire, bright burning fire
Burning down the hades gates
We're rain, hard falling rain
Falling hard on winter's pain
We're blood, bright crimson blood
Bleeding hatred into love
We're death, unrelenting death
With our fire against the grave
