lyrics

Bison, crow, a stone's throw
Let it come down, yeah, let it blow
Loose the steam from the sheath and let it breathe
It's time that we go a-prowling.

Lantern and a shadow down,
following witch trails 'til the morning
Nutmeg trance and coffee brown
It ain't raining, boy, you're drowning
Crooked tree says let it be,
so we'll leave it there 'til morning
dropping acorns touched with sorcery
to set all the leaves a-browning.

While Joshua cries like clouds in the skies,
there's a dust storm brewing that'll choke him dry
gonna call his bluff, he'll learn soon enough,
and the young ones always gotta have it rough

Hatchet and a maple down,
following witch trails 'til the morning
Strangle-vine and blood gone brown
It ain't raining, boy, you're drowning
Don't you wail and don't you weep
or get left here 'til the morning
writing secret names in bullet grease
to keep all your bones from growling.

Shed an eye, no room to cry,
smoke and ash and dust to die
Whisper a prayer to impossible gods
You've got the full attention of the firing squad
Take the wheel, take these pills,
they say it takes a year to heal
Take a stand, fill your hand,
let the powder and the spark demand.

Throw another circle down,
following witch trails 'til the morning
Ma Deuce sings the blues then goes to town
It ain't raining, boy, you're drowning
The casings and the sigils will all
be left here 'til the morning
The burning and the blade runs deep
to set all the clouds a-scowling

Bison, crow, a stone's throw
Let it come down, yeah, let it blow
Loose the steam from the sheath and let it breathe
It's time that we go a-prowling.

about

The Dream & Shadow Huntsman Group Oklahoma

I'm Marshall. I make music as the Dream & Shadow Huntsman Group. Adventurous music for fearless ears. Music with magic spells in it, that can seem strange in some ways but familiar in others.

I'm basically a solo artist; the "group" was almost always fictional characters that I drew sketches of and intended to animate. Never got around to that.
