lyrics

Step into the light
Burning blister bright
Can you feel me near?
Your kiss was so sincere
Duster's come to town
Leather's rough and brown
Boots kick up the sand
This is no man's land, and...
All we want is our fair share
A quiet place to rest our bones
Trains will run, and we will hide
From dusters, standing side by side
Shots ring out, your family falls
It's cowardly, their curtain call
Preachers cry, and bagpipes sing
You're not there to do a thing
Fall down to your knees
Not what you believe
Someone else's greed
Duster's tumbleweed
Grab my gun, and stand up tall
While exiting the entrance hall
I bow my head, but show no shame
I give myself for family name
Ashes ashes, falling down
From trouble in this one-horse town
Duster now, your time has come
The price you pay for rule of thumb
Weigh your heart upon the scale
You'll be damned without a fail
Progress paid with the blood from your first born son
This is how the west was won...

Asphalt Green fuses blues, rock, jazz, and alternative into a concoction of pure ecstasy. Sinners, Tricksters, Killers & Saints is their first album.
