lyrics

My friend, help me harvest this field of wheat
Look to the sun, the setting is incomplete.
Kneel down and fill your palms with sand
the harder you clench your fist the more of it slips from your hands.

My friend, with bones puncturing skin
look how the black water fills, flooding the systems within.
Those ties that bind your hands,
pulling you down and putting you on the stand.

So time, time, is your only shelter now,
and all of the clocks we've wound keep coming undone somehow.
So time, time, is your only hand to hold,
but the hours are just too long, and the minutes are getting old.
So time, this time, and the seconds that you detest,
the distance won't build a shield if those blankets aren't put to rest.

Now that the curtain has fallen,
He said "The world's gone to shit I'm gonna swim in the tar pits!"

You can't hide your eyes,
So I ran, yes I ran to the mountains.
From the burning skies.
But the onyx and the rocks will protect me,
Hide your eyes,
Every second every minute every day,
From the burning skies.
And this end is truly the beginning,
You can't hide your eyes,
And the world yes the world will keep spinning.
from the burning skies.
And as I melt, its all so beautiful.

But it's always going to be the same
Sleeping in the bedrock again
These hands just pass the blame
Sleeping in the bedrock again
An absence so hard to obtain
Sleeping in the bedrock again.
If you ever find that ever lasting change
don't come unchained.

about

Horse Eats Horse Portland, Oregon

Horse Eats Horse likes to play music for music's sake.
We have tons of varied influences and like to express that through our songs. Or maybe we just have collective ADD.
For instance:
"I saw your Craigslist ad, and I checked out your music, I really dig it! It is melodic, hectic, and pleasant, while at the same time being intellectual and stimulating, It is just down right pleasing to listen to."
