Jeremy Osborn These guys are awesome! Unfortunately I only heard of them after Jesse got hurt. I wish it had been under better circumstances, but at least I was able to find them and enjoy their music. Get Well Jesse! Favorite track: Batesian Mimicry.

Track Name: Batesian Mimicry
The mask I wear is terrifying
To provoke the fear necessary
To remind you that this is forever
I am forever
Because I've caught the voice that touches every man that spends too much time alone

"I can show you fear in a handful of dust"

In the mirror I rust and peel back the faces of all those yesterdays
This is not who I used to be
I used to be more than just these teeth

But no one remembers the victims and it's Saints that see past the tiger's teeth

It is not death that we fear, just the idea that our names can just disappear

I've become the dark, waiting for something darker
Inscribing my name on every bone I pick clean

In the dark, waiting for something darker

You will remember my name
Track Name: Century Blues
I want to use my teeth
To keep them sharp and skilled
To clean meat from the bone of a fresh kill
I want it all the hard way
I want something to feel
I need deeper breaths
I need something real
I need so much more
For there to be so much less

I want the Old West of our lives back

I want the sun to kiss my bones

Have you ever wanted more than these redundant steps?
I need so much more than what is left
I need to stop retracing these god damned silhouettes
I want a new adventure
I want to see the west
I need so much more than the 9 to 5
I need to ache to know I'm alive
I want to be a new idea
Based off an old design
With bigger teeth and stronger spine
I need so much more for there to be so much less
Until we're all that's left
Until I'm all that is left

1000 years ago I made heads roll because I wanted more

I want more. I want it more.
Track Name: Suicide Giants
How do you forget the rain?
We woke up children that day
And I alone went to sleep
Ancient In my grief
I keep on waking up
To all these words stuck
In my graveyard mouth
Dying, like autumn's sun
But I was always too much teeth
And Sometimes I can still feel your hand in mine,
Only for a seconds keep
But these seconds keep me going
I've outlived the better parts of me
I've outlived the best part of myself
Like an old dog who knows it's time
I'm just looking for a good place to die
Track Name: Midnight Mares
I love the things that hurt the most
So in my chest this graveyard grows
I've become a nameless ghost in my own head
Do you remember me?
Will anyone?
I have caught your dreamers disease and they won't rest until they get me
Black death runs freely across this landscape
Mountains of memories, like knives, like you

I held a scared, cancer of a girl until she fell back asleep, brushing the horses from her hair before they turned into nightmares

Up at night my mirror's ashamed of what I become
As I trace my veins
To see the sun

Open it up to be gone

This weakness I stole eagerly from your lips, thinking I was strong enough to ride wild horses and break them the way my name said I should

But I was nothing special
No, I am nothing pure

Night falls faster than love
And they ride something terrible, black as hell
Black as hell

I've become a bad, bad dream
And I just need to sleep
These mares run black as midnight
And I just need some sleep
Track Name: Riders
What good are the memories
If no one remembers me
No elixir can remedy
A life of wasted chemistry
I'll fear no gods and no dark enemies
Lonely is the road
That betters me
