lyrics

MY FIRST NAME

I never broke my nails on the skin of your back
when I was clawing my way to the top
when you were chewing through piles of the rotten dead
and sucking 100,000’ of cock

You’ll never find your way back home
but I’ll find a home for you
for you old friend, my sad old friend
you’re not much but you’ll have to do
and you can call me when you get here
but don’t call me by my first name

There are figures in the shadows of the seeping mist
that find you choking on your sorrows and the smell of piss
They’ve got some money for you, and a job for you
Because even dogs have life growing on their shit

I’m in the tap tap tapping of a blind man’s cane
I’m in drip drip dripping of a newborn babe
I’m in the oilsmooth handle of the gravedigger’s spade
I’m in the sucksunken cheeks in a doll’s face
and you can call me when you get here
but don’t call me by my first name

about

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
