Track Name: BOW RIVER
Listen now to the wind, babe
Listen now to the rain
Feel that water lickin' at my feet again
I don't wanna see this town no more
Wastin' my days on a factory floor
First thing you know I'll be back in Bow River again

Anytime you want babe, you can come around
But only six days separates me and the great Top End
I been working hard, twelve hours a day
And the money I saved won't buy my youth again
I'm goin' for the heat babe, and the tropical rain
In a place where no man's puttin' on the dog for me
I'm waitin' on the weekend, set o' brand new tyres
And back in Bow River's just where I want to be

Listen now to the wind, babe
Listen now to the rain
Feel that water lickin' at my feet again
I don't wanna see this town no more
Too many years made up my mind to go or stay
Right to my dying day
I don't wanna see another engine line
Too many years and I owe my mind
First set o' wheels headin' back Bow River again
First thing you know I'll be back in Bow River again

I got the motor runnin', I got the rest of my days
Sold everything I owned for just a song
So anytime you want babe, you can come around
But don't leave it too late, you just might find me gone

Listen now to the wind, babe
Listen now to the rain
Feel that water lickin' at my feet again
I don't wanna see this town no more
Too many years made up my mind to go or stay
Right to my dying day
I don't wanna see another engine line
Too many years and I owe my mind
First set o' wheels headin' back Bow River again

I don't need the score
I'm goin' through the door
Gonna tell the man I don't want no more
Pick up a fast car and burn my name in the road
One week, two week, maybe even more
Piss all my money up against the damn wall
First thing you know I'll be back in Bow River again
First thing you know I'll be back in Bow River again

First thing you know I'll be Back in Bow River Again
Track Name: NIGREDO
He came over plains
Stretching out as one can see
There’s a trail of tombstones
And eulogies from howling dogs

His crooked unkept jaw
Whistles jingled cries
Its no myth oh there’s a reason
For devastation to be swaggering in
Town bells were ringing
Yet no damn fool listening
The doors they get right kicked in
There’s only one way to skin a dirty cat

Oh man rich and poor
Curse money they don’t need it no more
And awe marches it marches on and on
To level this shit hole into the ground
Here comes Nigredo

That look in his eyes looks a little too familiar
On cruel lonely nights I dream of Nigredo
Track Name: LAY DOWN YOUR GUNS
You picked me up when I was down with nothing
And gave me something , I can't face the world without
You showed me just enough to fuel my fire
My desire, never wanna live without it

Both of us need something like we had before
We can't keep fighting like this anymore
This love affair is breaking my heart

All the pushing and the shoving
When we know that we ought to be loving
And the lying and the cheating
When we ought to be loving and squeezing
Come on come on
Lay down your guns and surrender

Remember days we thought would last forever
Nothing better but we let them slip away
Cause in the end we make the bed we lie in
Lets start trying
What's the point of talking about it

Never seems to make it better
If we can't get on together
Take a chance and try a brand new start

All the pushing and the shoving
When we know that we ought to be loving
And the lying and the cheating
When we ought to be loving and squeezing
Come on come on
Lay down your guns and surrender
