Sarah Hurd I never pay for music because I am 21 years old, but hopefully paying for this makes up for missing your set 2 out of 3 times :D

You guys rule. Favorite track: El Topo.

Track Name: Milky
Descriptor of our galaxy
Your skin in the moonlight
The flow of all our arguments
The one thing I don’t want in my veins
Track Name: The Stranger's Blood
It’s absurd to expect anything else
From a man who believes not in fate
The judges may shout and the jurors run ‘bout
But the verdict’s already too late

Albert he waited alone in his cell
Content with the hours he’d spent
When along came a priest who would tell
Him how all the other Prisoners went

“Why should I turn to a God I don’t believe in”
Asked Albert with furious might
“I will die happy and well with the world I relieved in
Staring at the stars this night”
Track Name: Heart of the Archive
And I’ll see your face
Yesterday
In the heart of the archives
What was lost still remains

And I’ll feel your gaze
Yesterday
In the heart of the archives
What was lost still remains

Everyone who ever said
We’d never make it has turned up dead and we’re still living
Five years down the road
Looking back at them with sullen smiles and broken faces

And that was the summer
That ignited the flames
We called each other
By all our beautiful names
I still remember
Taking your picture

And I’ll see your face
Yesterday
In the heart of the archives
What was lost still remains

And I’ll feel your gaze
Yesterday
In the heart of the archives
What was lost still remains
Track Name: 16 Milileader
The grain of reality
Seems so much clearer
When you shrink down the frame
And find there’s no one else to blame

This lack of focus
Can sometimes be
Disorientating
But with deep focus and long takes
We can learn the truth for truth’s sake

And the slick sick dogs of downtown
Won’t stand a chance on our ground

What we need to do is wake up
And give up on being docile
Celluloid feeds the take-up
And a spring wound tight is volatile

What we need to do is wake up
And give up on being docile
History feeds the take-up
And a spring wound tight is volatile
Track Name: El Topo
Been wandering
For days now
Through this old desert

Been wandering
For days now
Naked child
Riding on my back

Maybe I can make it to El Topo
If I don’t die first
By my woman’s hand

Digging for the truth we’ve finally found it
But murder is an easier answer
Maybe I can make it to the apex
This body feels the pain not me

There are four gunmen
In this desert
I must kill them
If I do not die first

We’ve got the bullet
It’s in the gun
But there’s only one
There’s only one
Track Name: Surf Minus Surf
Hey there God if you’re really up there
Won’t you listen to me and answer my prayers
I’m in a little band called Surf Minus Surf
And we just wanna make it to the top of the earth

Surf minus surf minus surf minus surf
