"Kemosabe" as written by Jonathan Joseph Higgs, Jeremy Joseph Pritchard, Alexander Kaines Robertshaw and Michael David Spearman....
Four walls and a cauldron of Kalashnikoving
And our home is a trigger that I'm always pulling
At the border, at the, at the border
I'm at the border, at the, at the border
The short spears and the weak eternal monologuing
And our war is the crucible of all your longing
At the border, at the, at the border
I'm at the border, at the, at the border

I was there when the clamor got real
I was there when your brow smashed the wall
It's like a riot with only two perps
The more I'm here I'm making it worse
But does it feel like you're already dead? (Yes)
And do you feel like your brain stopped delivering?
Yeah, break my finger shoot out my black eyes
What does it matter if everyone dies?

(Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
Ayah, I am a, I am alone
(Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
Ayah, I am a, I am alone
Hi-O Silver away

So fast hence take an arrow from your quiver or we're
Past tens, what's a trilobite to anyone?
I'm outta my depth, outta, outta my depth
I'm outta my depth, outta, outta my depth
My head reels and I'm crawling down the corridor
I can't see but I'm heaving like a holocaust

I'm reaching my phone, reaching, reaching my phone
I'm reaching my phone, reaching, reaching my phone
You wasn't there when I orphaned that boy (No)
Your body was and the white of your rollin' eye
I saw some terrible things on that night
I done a lot of bad things with my life
I put my fingers in there
Hey, and I breeze past security
Nobody checking on all of my deeds
I need a checker for all of my deeds

(Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
Ayah, I am a, I am alone
(Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
Ayah, I am a, I am alone

And we be trapped in the amber last joy
And I'm looking at a holy ghost
But there's no silver bullet for a memory
I field dress every moment but you're telling me that Torito say
I've lost my way

(Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
Ayah, I am a, I am alone
(Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
Ayah, I am a, I am alone

Mmm, and I'm lost and I'm drained
Enough genuflecting in a penitent way

(Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
Ayah, I am a, I am alone
(Hey) Hey, Kemosabe I'm alone
Ayah, I am a, I am alone
Hi-O Silver away
