lyrics

Spoils like Venom
Schillace/Lac La Belle

Skipped that last train going out
Ain’t no way to carry me home
I drove a thousand spikes through steel
Rail stretching miles of land

I started on the east coast of the country
I ended at the shores of the Pacific

The first one we took she was headed
Baltimore, Chicago bound
The taste of spoils like venom
and we burned that iron to the ground

When we rode off I could still hear crying
But the night just swallowed me whole

A killer’s disease won’t temper
What an ocean of pearls can’t sway
Working that line like butchers
Cutting our hate with greed

I remember the roil of my brothers
Shooting at stars that shattered like crystals

Three down and two in the desert
Last one bleeding out in the sand
Reckless and wild I continue
No force left for a locomotive now

I buried friends in the shadows under mountains
Cold valleys, shrouded in cloud

Murder only buys you terror
Money doesn’t spend on fear
I started on the east coast of the country
I ended at the shores of the Pacific
