Round up heaven's drunk ones booze grips the lungs we are a battle raging forward at the sun

This skull is empty love has left me here unsung release the wolves before the town's rats overcome

Heaven's a bastard place watching nurses piss on open graves
warriors rise from their tombs will they save our fortune

Lead the pigs and creatures onward
doves peck at the wounded save room for the dead

It's time for the living to march on till the end

We are the ones who wanted more than this wretched life to die and live among the perfect and the right

I just can't breathe without a drop of the finest wine in this perfect life

Tattoo the crotch of the heavenly father young blood you've got the best of me

The angels failed to mention the price you're gonna have to pay pawning dreams of our mouths around the virgin

All my dreams are broken wrapped in sequences. Humanity
All my devastation bare the consequence. Humanity
All my complications lead to consequence. Humanity

We gave it to our fathers for a second chance to live for free

To live for free

The grotesque

    General CommentThis is the first song off Johnny Truant's new album No Tears For The Creatures, and what a song! This song puts you straight in the centre of a raging battle, except this is a battle within themselves!

    Overcome with pure emotion & anger they are beyond the recognition of humanity, they are creatures, very angry creatures!

    "to live for free" this song is about money, or lack of ( that and indulgence of the finest of alcohol) .

    It's a battle of personal demons!

    And on their way, the path they lead will devastate and leave its trail of destruction behind it!
