It began with images carved in cherry wood blocks and hand printed which was then scanned into the digital realm by the designers at Greymatter Group. The disc is the the image of a slice of log stained a beautiful yellow green.

about

This song is based on chapter 9 of Proverbs the book Solomon wrote to advise his son about 350 BC.

lyrics

She does her hips just like Elvis, Tina Turner meets Fred Astaire. She makes friends in dangerous places hides a pistol in her hair.
She's got lasers for her eyes and a tussle in her bustle. Temptation on her corner the way she moves will hypnotize.

chorus

Oh please give me some water, a little drop for my tongue. Send me down Mr Jacobs Ladder and I will climb up rung by rung.

I try to talk but I can't all I can do is stammer.
My heart beating hard like an old trip hammer.
Like a lamb to the slaughter, like a stone rolling down a hill.
I don't know what I'm doing, I have lost all my will.

She anoints herself with oil from the places far away.
She's wearing silk her sheets are satin and she knows the words to say.
Skeletons in her closet say "Boy get up and run".
The Devil laughs and pumps the organ and says tonight was made for fun.

chorus

History's littered with her victims, Babylon to Timbuktu.
With a wink and a kiss she's got a hold of you.
Hell fire is leaping lake of fire my new home.
I would fly from here right now but my heart's heavy as a stone.

Brothers listen to my story, taste my tears and head my call.
Don't fall into her trap cause if you do, you loose it all.

Chorus
