Track Name: Andromache
The stories I carry are burdensome
Weighed down by their passing.
No longer will I bear them

I sing to you of a woman
I sing to you in a thousand wars
I sing to you of bones, dust and dirt
and what we do to survive.

A child, unlike any child
Surviving death of innocence
A bane that killed all other babes
Famine killing everyone
Leaving others jettisoned
Empty houses, angry sun

Then one day she met a man
Hector, prince of distant troy
A man of men, they all would say
He needs a wife as strong as he
To have and hold when days are done
They told her she's the only one

Kate Jopson/ D. Reuben Snyder
Track Name: Hecuba Blues
Molded by decent
Loudly walking feet

Imprisoned on her throne
You'll know who's on her side
She'll own her own ordeal, ordeal only

Lightning over head
Oh she runnin’ scared
She all alone belittled, belittled at ease

"Hark, I do advise
leave this painful place"

Hark I do advise
Heave but leave no trace
She'll leave alone a little, a little besieged

Lord we know
"Silence them may they know no rest"
Track Name: Mama's Little Baby
Mama’s lil baby
Mama’s lil baby
Tell you bout mama’s lil baby
we had to learn to love
we had to learn to love, learn to love

Mama’s little baby was born
in the cotton fields one day

Mama’s lil baby
gotta grow up, gotta grow up all the time
Mama’s lil baby

I wanna do greater things than I wanna tell you why
seen so many of them in the cotton fields
seen so many tear drops and they were dropping of real
And when I got turned down from rhythm Lord and almost broke my rhythm
Gave me the blues

working from sunup till sundown
plants and all kind of places
all those dirty faces
dirty, dirty faces

the technical field, the technical field
the technical field is making me blue

Mama’s lil baby
Mama’s lil baby
Track Name: Deicide
Don't leave me up a tree
Devouring a baby
Believe me, I'm Idaho
My master fallacy

Don't leave me up a tree
Is bad for our journey
Devouring a baby
