Track Name: V-Bomb
V​-​Bomb (EP version)
by Dark Wheels

Name the time name the place
Put on your good dress
Greet me to your kin

Longside the darkness
All the tricks we know
To slip the dead hand
Gentle shall we go
Into the badlands

Light the fire hear the bell ring
Light the fire hear the book sing
Ride the wave mourn the lost hand
Ride the wave greet the good thing

Our better days will survive
Amidst the decay
We will turn the tide
Out on the freeway

Run up all the flags
And wade in singing
Takes 22 angry lads
To slay the mad king

The ones you left behind
You know they’re long-gone
Signal me when it’s time
To drop the V-Bomb

Light the fire hear the bell ring
Light the fire hear the book sing
Ride the wave mourn the lost hand
Ride the wave greet the good thing

With all the shame you might desire
You go outside the wire
You go outside the wire
Let us praise the angel
As he cuts them all down
Into the cold ground
Into the cold ground

Let us praise the angel
As he cuts them all down
Into the cold ground
Into the cold ground
Track Name: Big Door
Big Door
by Dark Wheels

I am the rube that
You knew to be true
And now I know you done me wrong
I suddenly see that
I’ll sleep me a remedy
Cause you sure done me wrong

I will dance in the ruins
Of stories you told
You know I won’t let it go

I’ll weep all the good tears
As I burn the bridge
To light my way
It’s way too late to prove me wrong

Walking me through the big door
Choosing to live the big life

Smelling like war
I will roll up the coastline
And rise and drown the unmoored

Now that I’m free
I will call out the lightning
To rise and burn the unmade

I know that you drink on the run
I know that you’re trying to get clean

And then you come home
And brand new promises
Float up the stair and out through the window into the air

Take the stage
Draw your gun
That will show everyone
Kiss the bride so they can see

Bring on the flame
As we count down the hours
I’ll stretch out my last remedy

I know that you drink on the run
I know that you’re trying to get clean

And then you come home
And brand new promises
Float up the stair and out through the window into the air
Track Name: Mighty Sky
Mighty Sky by Dark Wheels

There’s a radio in the nighttime
Like a ruby in my eye
Singing all the foreign signals
Flung across the mighty sky

Give me something I can take with me
Think of me please and pray for my safety

I got a bright white light
See it shine down on me
I got a bright white light
See it shine down on me
My heart’s on fire

Call you out it's your time now
Free at last you can seize the day
Feel the speed burning through you
See the earth just fall away
Would that I had the words to convince you
Would that I had the strength to continue

I got a bright white light
See it shine down on me
I got a bright white light
See it shine down on me
My heart’s on fire

I open my eyes
Waiting to drown in all the world’s magic in the night sky
You know it’s your time
You know it’s just waiting for you to ride out and claim as your prize

See yourself can’t even claim to have remembered me
All the things somebody probably told you

Bout anything I could still say to persuade you
Or anything I can do now that my cover is blown
Track Name: Pilgrim
Pilgrim by Dark Wheels

Come on pilgrim sun is coming through you
Your wild eyes failing to remember me
You can take shelter in reason shelter in faith
But who will take care of me?

Judas Judas

Come on pilgrim abandon your dreaming
See the rose glow on the horizon

You don’t know what time it is do you
Half a chance surely you’d change it all wouldn’t you

Judas Judas

He moves his feet and says he has to go
She’s trained half a lifetime to achieve this self-control

She says

Much ado about something so trivial
Could it be it was all just a chemical
Feel it burn and everything singing
Do you still feel the needle come stinging you

Bleed us bleed us white
Bleed us bleed us white

Show us show us show us a real good time now
He hangs his head and he says I am to blame
He says I am a liar and a liar I’ll remain
He says Ding ding you’re out of time
Come on down you already may have won
Cover your eyes for the prize
Fly child fly the train is leaving

Recomberoticize
Pain pain it’s a proven seller

What was that about
What could it have been
You know all is forgiven cause it’s summer again I can hear the band And the sky is alive with constellations fiery bright
