Zhakathoom I'm pretty sure this isn't the worst album cover ever made, but I'm pretty sure that it has put more people off from checking this release out than the other way around.

What else could explain the "appears in 1 other collection" at the bottom here? Because the EP is really, really good. A fistfull of hooks and solid vocals makes this rock/heavy album a listeners treat, and I for one am surprised it's not featured in a lot more collections.

Track Name: Ruined
Swing low, save me
though I deserve this
Their eyes cut deep
so I am useless

Deaf, dumb, indifferent
Blind, numb and listless
I'm ruined

Shadows greet me, hollow scenery
So now end this 'cause I am useless
Track Name: $
It suits a man to toil,
to gain his bread and prosper.
To cheat the games of nature,
is to trust in ground that falters.

You'll be eternally ripped apart for your black heart.

Dollar signs in your eyes
It's no wonder you can't see straight
You slap the market, ride the wave,
no matter who gets fucked in the undertow oh no no

Behind the pillars is the gold
all the rest are left in the cold
Holy houses, behind the pillars is the gold
Are you blinded by the light?
Arise! We were meant to earn this.
Track Name: Zombies
Rain, come put the fire out, yeah
It's burning too long
Hold tight to your things, yeah
When the flood come
We'll see who sink or swim

It won't be long

Run from the back of the herd
Oh but there is no forward
drift along corporeal seas
Dead eyes leading dead bodies
