lyrics

Thrive!

Opportunity grows with staggering pride
A hotbed of crime and immorality shines
Fear the growth of the masterless working class
This frontier town breeds the filth
Defiled from mayhem, The growth of this town
The stealing of Horseflesh, In common stride
Decades to build, expanding the trade
The rails bring the villainous way

Thrive!

Murder for the profit desire
Rape to satisfy the deviant mind
Theft brings wealth to the lower class
Arson to cleanse the cowardly rich

Beastly sensuality and darkest crimes
Here “The Patches” rule the night
Along the river, the common people clash
Retribution for their meager days pay
All to catapult the con mans game
The gamblers sin, the loss of wage
Vermin in shadow, stalking their prey
A celebrating dance for thievery’s day

Wicked is the reputation, Infested with a horde of thieves
Burglars, cut throats, bent on misery
Who will not hesitate, to burn the city down
Pillage, plunder and Murder, a vile underground
Lawless souls to be punished by few
Thousands bear witness to the hang
The first this cities eyes will see
Changing the face of the days ahead

Thrive!

A divine retribution in desperate need
Against this modern Sodom and Gomorrah
To clean the slate and start a new
Create a flame and burn the scum away
A bovine tale, from a lanterns glow
Summer of draught, dries the mass
Streets and sidewalks of wooden plank
Stands no chance from hellish wrath

Wicked is the reputation, Infested with a horde of thieves
Burglars, cut throats, bent on misery
Who will not hesitate, to burn the city down
Pillage, plunder and Murder, a vile underground
Lawless souls to be punished by few
Thousands bear witness to the hang
The first this cities eyes will see
Changing the face of the days ahead

Thrive!
