"Let It Roll" as written by and Oliver Talkes....
Once I saw your face
I knew my time had come
I knew we'd be together
Like a soldier and a soldier's gun

But there is trouble
All around
And vultures overhead
And the sea don't look the same anymore
And the sky is the colour of lead

Let it roll boys
Let it roll boys
That golden handle will begin to turn
And I know boys
Yes I know boys
From where we end up
We will never return

I packed my bags on the darkest of nights
And I left Eve asleep on the bed
I made my way down to the cave by the shore
Where I knew someone would be waiting for me

A face in the shadows I recognized straight away
I said they told me you had died
He said why did you come here
When I warned you away
I said I come here for money

We made it through the hills
When dawn did arrive
By noon we'd reached Redwood Point
The capital city was still far away
But I could feel the change in the air

Let it roll boys
Let it roll boys
That golden handle will begin to turn
And I know boys
Yes I know boys
From where we end up
We will never return

The man had a place just north of the city
It was good for somewhere to hide
Come the fifth into town
I would fly in the night
Oh this is easy money

The sun went down and the stars came out
I remember her face so clear
I watch from the street as she strolled back in the house
And here I stayed 'til the lights went out
the whole way is warm with the breath of the damned
I crept in the room where she lay
The stars like diamonds in the flash of the blade
By the light of the moon she was slain

Let it roll boys
Let it roll boys
That golden handle will begin to turn
And I know boys
Yes I know boys
From where we end up
We will never return
