Four Crows 02:33
Say your goodbyes you've got a long lead on a town sulkin' you put a right on the trigger say it again you've got an old time feelin' down it's fire without a warning and by the look of winter eyes... I panic see you in the shallow I held back leave me for the lights long live the blurry outcome don't make 'em stop It's who we are
Smokestack 06:07
Submit to the clouds and the light the curse dead rivers surrounding could be worse arrow through the house spitfire to cradle a wound that stops healing seek out your fear and live the darker the prowess cross the keys merci a la fee verte I don't need the mark or the charm the comfort in numbers the day it lost meaning seek out your fear and live light across a sugar coal there's no need to water it down light from a little known cave you see it's all hollow ground Breathe are you sinking? Can you breathe? Are you sinking aloud?
All Your Eye 03:40
A curly wolf axe tonight I was on my way to see the runaway trains the wrong times you can't help if you can't leave hold on i never meant to stay so long a northern rain passed me by I held out a burnt empty hand a copper nail grin a long time comin' I can't seem to understand you say you've got a grey sky above a bloodshot town yeah but you pity what you own i pity that hell hold on If you're the cinder I am burning at the seams hokahey It's a good day to die or in the night It's all you eye without the hate so keep your secrets and your desert smile my runaway horse head all your eye
Red 03:52
First to the floor I'm a cancer kill the conscience it's a chore dead speak like an echo time to leave what are you sorry for? Mistaken empty handed hang my teeth from the porch mistaken empty handed hang my teeth from your door Cursed to a cross call on comfort see no color say no more call me red as a desert save your smile save it all 'cause I'm mistaken empty handed hang my teeth from the porch mistaken empty handed hang my teeth from your door and don't you dare make her stop.
Sundance 05:28
Sun will rise the sun will roam you locked me up with a dull knife I should've known you can't miss what you don't own It's a pity don't you dare feel sorry for them they don't want to be real In every confrontation I crave the taste... sun will rise the sun will roam I locked you up with a sharp knife quell the fever an' take me home If I'm the marrow you're the bone don't you dare feel sorry for them they don't want to be real In every confrontation I crave the taste a taste of... quell the fever an' take me home you want it all I wanted more give me a taste of your violence
I called to nothing yeah what could I say? just a waste of talent pick it up and figure it out did i hurt you? I see you, Red don't tell me who's callin' out I started out that Saturday cursin' the sun yeah I was lookin' for a reason or a meaning aloud If I hurt you I'll see you in Rands don't call it dead yet 'cause grey is no color to wait patiently? well I was second guessing the fear the pulse froze throughout my hands I called to nothing yeah what could I say? I don't need the challenge took so long to figure it out when i cut you I took that debt but who's countin' there's no good in me there's no need no motivation I'll see you around grey waits patiently while I was second guessing the fear the pulse froze throughout my hands worth my time wasn't worth my time get along now get it right you're so catty
Fox & Embers 04:37
one the hunter says he's got the luck comin' up when he's back in town he'll shoot 'em down he'll carve 'em out then you'll hang 'em up like they never even made a sound fox and embers you'll get it two yeah they'll hunt you says he's got that cut comin' up but I'm not around where nothing's real yeah no one's clean the lights left on above the speaking eyes call not one the soul pathetic fox and embers
Vivora 01:55
No Color 04:32
You can rely but you can't recall the cycle and finally I found an ox to hunt you down speak from your bones and tell me of your calling and what can't be shown spare your eyes the comfort constant like a hand in red yeah they'll end you where you stand you say it can't be real we say we're not the weaker lion who leads the chase on the wolves? who sees no color? we're waiting all the eye will burn out bright every chance you take is golden all the eye will burn out bright every truth you break is hollow
Lock 03:53
Why won't you? why can't they replace the lamps now? we need help the eyes lie no smoke rose but I burn that house down so stop breathing deep just run It took twelve to let go I can't settle now there's no fault my skin crawled to welcome you back to your home town these are more than lives on gray
In Our Bones 06:56
All gold Is this a Father? I put that smile to rest all the while the bitter hands of your name It tore across my chest the lone the debt the caller stone's throw from sow to reap who crossed the crooked hands? and who stole that fire beneath my feet? eyes on the wrong eyes on the answer but lies can't be bought they're in our bones and I've seen the way the sun turns to a rust at the site of what we are lie through it all

'Year of the Snake' is Silver Snakes' first full-length in nearly three years, following 2011's 'Pictures of a Floating World' (as well as 2012's 'Old Light' single and last year's 'split EP with Souvenirs' and 'Sundance teaser'). Their sophomore effort builds on the promise of those releases, delivering a heavy, uncompromising, metallic post-hardcore/alternative hybrid experimentally touching upon both ends of the rock spectrum, from sludgy forays to acoustic detours and a snarling melodic sensibility spread throughout.
