about

RED FANG deals in kick-ass heavy rock. On their Chris Funk (DECEMBERISTS) produced, Vance Powell (KINGS OF LEON, WHITE STRIPES, RACONTEURS) mixed Relapse debut Murder the Mountains, the quartet waves a middle finger at fashion and bet the proverbial house on substance over style. The incredible “Wires”, “Number Thirteen”, "Hank Is Dead", and "The Undertow" are just a few of an onslaught of highlights on this front-to-back set of great f%$king songs.

***Includes Digital Booklet***

about

Red Fang Portland

Ever since their inception, RED FANG have strived to write heavy, catchy music underlaid with subtle complexities. Founded in 2005, the band had a distinctive and fully-formed sound right from the start: a mix of compelling rock songwriting and party-hard metal euphoria that speaks to the headbanger, the hesher, and the music student alike. ... more

Track Name: Malverde
I've been runnin' with the gone right people
we'll be coming for you
I've been dying with the unclean people
I know that
what will she do now that she don't love you

That's the trick, that's the trick
I can't believe that you're falling for it
That's the fear, feel it grow
shatters the ground as it comes from below

Thousand miles to go
Now you've got to go
Thousand miles to go for you

Thousand miles to go
Now you've got to go
Thousand miles to go
What will she do now that she don't love you

That's the trick, that's the trick
I can't believe that you're falling for it
That's the fear, feel it grow
shatters the ground as it comes from below
That's the trick, that's the trick, that's the trick, that's the trick

That's the trick, that's the trick
I can't believe that you're falling for it
That's the fear, feel it grow
shatters the ground as it comes from below
That's the trick, that's the trick, that's the trick, that's the trick
Track Name: Wires
Kid, don't lose your cool, it's still too soon to have to choose a brighter doom
It's hard to believe, but I can see how there could be so little left to lose
(cracking open skulls like cans of beans on Christmas Eve)

Mama's not okay, she lights a candle for ev'ry day that you're away
Today could be the one she burns the motherfucker down her final act of grace
In an endless, pointless race

Kid, you're under fire, your
life is coming down to the wire
Maybe you'll take the Captain's hand, carry
his ship through burning sands
Cradle your rifle like a man

Mama says "No way," she's lost it all, you've got to stay to make her pay
She knows the fiend upon the throne's a goddam sucker for the stone
Until the day he dies alone

Succumb....
Track Name: Hank is Dead
Burn the flesh that
had long been rotten
He is gone, but he's not forgotten
Save his name, but don't replace
The time you spent to make his place
He's the only one to keep alive

Here they come again
With their bloodshot eyes
Leave the promised land
Shed your earthly skin

Left alone in a tiny capsule
He's the king of an empty castle
Went away to fill a grave
And made you stay a human slave
Never got to meet the son of mine

Here they come again
With their bloodshot eyes
Leave the promise land
Shed your earthly skin
Track Name: Dirt Wizard
its alright i know
there's no place to go
put gas on the fire
cause i like it that way

things all seem the same
nothing seems to change
turn on my friends
until none remain

ramble on, on and on
back to the where shadow's gone
oh yeah oh yeah
ramble on, on and on
back to when my life ain't wrong
oh yeah oh yeah

we're all lost at sea
and'll soon cease to be
i love the way
that you shut me out

you just seems so tired
why not rest awhile?
just shut your eyes
and i'll gouge them out

ramble on, on and on
back to the where shadow's gone
oh yeah oh yeah
ramble on, on and on
back to when my life ain't wrong
oh yeah oh yeah
Track Name: Throw Up
If it's blood that you need to make the pills go down,
I will spill the blood
If the flies that you eat are tasting twice as sweet,
they came from rotting meat
If the skin on your teeth is drawing thin like a leaf,
and you are feeling weak
You can thank me

[CHORUS:]
You say what you gotta say, I know
Feel the pain that you feel today, I know
It's a puzzle that we figure out
Take the hate and you spit it out
Take what's left and you let it in, let it in

Now the scum from the creek is filling up your cheeks,
and you can hardly speak
While the bones in your brain grind themselves away,
they will make you sane
If the steps of your path reflect your building wrath,
they will be your last
And you can thank me

[CHORUS]

Got all the symptoms of decay
You see disease and look away
Begin the swarming from the caves
Burning the fields of amber waves
Raising the dead up from the grave
Amass an army of rotting slaves
Track Name: Painted Parade
Painted parade, a slave to the trade,
can't sleep in the bed that you've made
Daddy was wrong, you could have been strong,
but you've been alone far too long

You'll never be pure, yes madam, yes sir
you've always obeyed, to be sure
Feet to the fire, they call you a liar
this cannot be what you desire

Council the weak, they think you're a freak,
a future that's hopelessly bleak
Confused by success, your life is a mess,
yet they can convince you you're blessed

Don't come with me, I won't set you free,
'cause that's not where you need to be
And no, I'm not confused, although you're abused,
I see it's this life that you choose

Painted parade, a slave to the trade,
can't sleep in the bed that you've made
Daddy was wrong, you could have been strong,
but you've been alone far too long

You'll never be pure, yes madam, yes sir
you've always obeyed, to be sure
Feet to the fire, they call you a liar
this cannot be what you want
Track Name: Number Thirteen
I can brave the cold alone
I'm sleeping on the ground
I hate your golden throne
But want it for my own
I see that I'm the one
Who's breakin us in two
How could this be the end?

[CHORUS:]
You're my, you're my
Number Thirteen
You're my, you're my
Loss of control
You're my, you're my
Everything
You're my, you're my...

Rake our nose across the stone
We're never leaving home
We're headed to the West
Beyone the dying breath
Our boots will scratch and scrape
But we cannot escape
We're running to our fate

[CHORUS]

I know the fields are burnin'
Blacks out the cruelest dawn
I hear the God's a-screamin'
The war goes on and on

I can brave the cold alone
I'm sleeping underground
I've made your golden throne
But want it for my own
I see that I'm the one
Who's breakin' us in two
How could this be the end?

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Into the Eye
I don't like what I'm feelin'
and I'm falling apart
Your floor is my ceiling
until I can't see your face any more.

You rise high above me
and signal the end
the mirror ignores me
and now I just want this day to end.

We got hell, we need seed
see the light when you drink what i bleed
we got gods, that you know
now in darkness our numbers will grow

The days pass unending
a scratch at the door
I just keep pretending
that I can't see your face anymore

Their eyes are upon me
I've been chased to the end
They draw me in slowly
Until I don't have a face anymore

We got hell, we got seed
See the light when you drink what I bleed
There you are, bent so low
In our arms now we reap what we sow

There was no need to worry
My soul is a star
They always surround me
and now I can't see
your face anymore
[x5]
Track Name: The Undertow
Cold swells below now it's all he knows
Don't fight the water, the undertow
Can't save his daughter, and down she goes
She calls to him and slips below
She calls to him

He has no answer for all her pain
Something is growing inside her brain
Can't dry her eyes for the pouring rain
Watching her die made him insane
Made him insane
Track Name: Human Herd
We've set our minds to taking the babe from your arms
Our greatest fear is never to bring him to harm
It's hard to see his flowing, golden hair
For the light that's blinding us with market share

[CHORUS:]
You can't protect him from his life
We'll find a way to make you lie
He'll be with us and never die
This is the end and you know why

Out to the water you let us hold him down
They never struggle when they want to drown
They take so much from us without a word
Just a little thing we ask from the human herd

[CHORUS x2]
