lyrics

What I have seen of the sun
is just the glint of some
much larger, more awful creature’s mane
But it has shown to me
the girls bruising their pale feet
on the rocks in the river
beyond the cattails and the cane

When the cherry blossoms bloom
they will lift away the gloom
We will see each other a first time
What different seas and suns
have stolen from us
What different winds have blown
the red into our eyes

My coward heart is yearning
for a home-nest and a welcome
In your jaws I am turning
but it’s nice to be inside of you

As I flail out at the void
my arms rattle in their joints
Oh to be coddled, iced down and saved
But I have frozen into Ghost and
I am looking for a new host
who is cold and empty and damp as a cave

My coward heart is yearning
for a home-nest and a welcome
In your jaws I am turning
but it’s nice to be inside of you

Roselit Bone Portland, Oregon

“’Blister Steel’ is a runaway success … an unnerving set of booze-soaked, blood-curdling hellfire hymns that sound like very few other bands anywhere”
—The Portland Mercury

“Like Marty Robbins meets The Cramps, or a Goblin sountrack to a spaghetti western, ranchero fantasy meets greased up country in a magical reality.”
—American Standard Time
