Song 20 04:45
Well I woke up this morning And went down to the river And I laid down on the banks I dipped my hands in the water And though I found it to be cool I could not give a word of thanks 'Cause I woke up this morning And went down to the river And I feel down on my knees The banks were filled with children Coughing up blood and spitting out Their bellies swollen up With disease And when you pray to your god You tell him that you heard this song And you remember what I said I have no love for any god Who puts a child on this earth Only to suffer and be dead
Song 1 02:39


2 Song 7" Recorded in late 2007. Released via Hydra Head Records in 2008 to coincide with our European tour with Isis. (I guess they prefer to be called ISIS.) I don't think there are any more 7"s left for sale.
