Miners Lie!

from Songs For Creeps by Amy Annelle

/

about

recorded and mixed at the Old Wonder Chamber, Austin, Texas.

lyrics

a now, a now, a now or a never. a now, a now, a now or a never.

the lines composed in sleep are the best that come to be. but fade, like a wave they do, in the morning. goodbye. goodbye.

on the family monument, your name has been engraved. below the welded iron crosses, oh! the miners lie, waiting for you to die.

with your eyes wide open, you're staring at the sky, with your eyes wide.
now: where's all the mercury? where's all the cyanide? the poison well's inside you, the poison well's inside.
