Old Man Doom Nice little twofer here. Hopefully these Sleeping Tigers will wake up and put out some more. Excellent riffs and it's just a taste of hopefully more good things to come. Favorite track: Ancient Request.

Bucky Consider my interest in full pique mode. Groove for days, riffs for miles, and the hooks catch you like Yogi Berra on a curve ball.

Track Name: Ancient Request
I am here to fulfill all your requests
To be diligent to be strong
And I've been brought to you
To disarm all distress
In the lighter day I stand here to say

I was sent from above
To make sense of all this
And I'm gonna break it all back
And reveal what's a secret

I am strong within your presence
Your blood gives me strength
Your eyes see the way
But you've been here before I can smell it
Hush now
I make death into life and turn water into wine

I was sent from below
The ice burning
To be cast off from glaciers
Into the fiery pits of earth

Shot down the enemy I did
Reach for the sky and take a breath
I won't do anything they did
So we'll sit and watch the sky vanish

And when your dreams come crashing down
Come crashing down on your hope
I'll be waiting on the other side
I'll be waiting with patience
Atomic laid to rest
You're frustrated and your heartbeat is fasts
You're dying and I know why
You life's over you're not ready to die

The days go by and I'm waiting
Tears will fall but then dry up and go to the sky

Ancient Request
Track Name: Railroads
Run for the hills
Before your family kills
I know it's hard
I've seen it before
What do you know
About the would
'Cause I guess I just got let out of my cage

And you can I'll be by your side
And you can bet i'll be there with you
Until the morning rise

And while you're on top
I'm running hot
You said it yourself baby I'm running out of time
Living on the edge
And the destruction it brings you
You said it again honey I'm running out of time

Yes you can bet I'll be by your side
And you can bet I'll be there with you
Until the morning rise

Until the end

I'm afraid of getting out alive
I can see the way you shake and cry
Hey baby I'm running on edge that's when I'm running out of time
And when your rivers flow my way that's when I am running dry

I play the game I light the fire
When the night is gone I throw my hands up to the sky

Summer days they get so hot
I take the railroads
When I find I get through the knot
I can't control myself
