lyrics

Blanks in one hand and a shield in the other
Tying your hands to an indifferent love.
Seeds in the desert make ritual bliss,
Can't miss a target that doesn't exist.

Story book romance rides the rhythm of the ages,
but to consummate these feelings is to burn all the pages.

Can you
Is there freedom from shame and guilt
Stay the
When you separate blade from hilt
Hands of
The mechanism we built
For no consequence!

But it's his, hers, yours for the taking,
Freedom from guilt and the idea of waiting.
The forever dream, a practice archaic.
A labor of love but only if you make it.

Guilty pleasure, but who's being please?
As long there's a will, we'll find the means.

Can you
Is there freedom from shame and guilt
Stay the
When you separate blade from hilt
Hands of
The mechanism we built
For no consequence!

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."
