Track Name: In the Beginning...
Brother Calm and Silence broke their vows of self
to scream to life one existence
For him, her, this, that, and all that’s in between
Their tongues filled a universally shared dream

The cries of dumb beasts seemed to displease
and the mouths of the mud men we also ceased
Gods can move in mysterious ways
Strange how omniscience still craves our praise

Sad fates for the forgotten men of wood
an endangered few survived being cat food
by monkeying round in the trees
you can still hear there howls in the misty silk breeze

Then came their son of their overwhelming pride
Vucub-Caquix had diamond eyes and gold bones inside
“I am the Sun, the Light, the Moon”
Calm and Silence shook their heads at the baffoon

Foolish Vucub claimed light as his glory
The Hero Twins own that right, this is their story....
Track Name: Pair a Dice Lost
WHAT IS THAT NOISE??!!

Screamed seven devil Lords of Xibalba
Have you no respect for the dead?
four owls sent to present a duel to the fools
A game in Hell is called, wear your best threads
Walk down endless stairwells past a blood filled lake
A four colored crossroads awaits your mistake
evil jokesters made decoys for a laugh
and the stone bench burns the skin right off your ass!

We are the Lords of lands of deceit
you offer your souls at the base of our feet
Be sent to a house where the freezing wind howls
or one where Pumas stalk you with snarls and growls!
A house where knives screech ‘til you’re crazy with in
A house of bats that bite and shroud your skin
The twins shat their pants awaiting their doom
Banished to darkness in the House of Endless Gloom

Devil Lords gave them candles and cigars
Un Trojan Regalo shines in black morning dew
“Strip and paint them for death on the altars!”
Then a Seven Club pulled out the Hearts of Two
Buried at Puzbal-Char, Hun’s head fruited a tree
Lord Blood’s lil’ girl swallowed its Seed of Progeny
Four Owls sent to present the new mother with death
But they saved her and only a phony heart was left

We are the Lords of lands of deceit
you offer your souls at the base of our feet
Be sent to a house where the freezing wind howls
or one where Pumas stalk you with snarls and growls!
A house where knives screech ‘til you’re crazy with in
A house of bats that bite and shroud your skin
The twins shat their pants awaiting their doom
Banished to darkness in the House of Endless Gloom
Track Name: Incarnation
Magic twins of Blood with different names
Played ball, miffed the gods as their fathers did the same
The lords sent a challenge in a jungle roll
A bug in a frog in a snake in a Russian hawk doll
Armed with blowguns and Xan the Mosquo spy
They crossed the river and called the Lords to their eyes
They never smoked cigars or felt the hot seat
So clever they were leading to the Devils’ defeat

We are your incarnation
The worst kind of distant relation

“Who or what are you?”
“Where do you come from?”
“We do not know.”
“But your blood will flow!!!”

Magic ants snuck dew pedals past the owl fools
Lords slashed their mouths so future owls open wide to “who”
In the Pantera House the twins threw bones
The big bunch of hungry pussies then left them alone
Getting closer to crush Xibalba’s empire
Bricks of coal and wood pacified the house of fire
Lords of Hell forget the future’s sewn from the past
And how your nasty actions gives karma the last laugh.

We are your incarnation
The worst kind of distant relation

“Who or what are you?”
“Where do you come from?”
“We do not know.”
“But your blood will flow!!!”
Track Name: Martires
The Devils, mad as hell, just wanted the twins dead
So the bat lord Kama-Zotz sliced off Hun’s head
Xbalanque screamed a mountain through their revelry
He promised them a quick death soon to be.
The buzzard Vuch wings blanketed the sun
And Huracan smiled as the next chapter was spun (now I tell ya)

“Hun’s phone head shell is now complete
Just play along and we’ll seal their defeat,
Rabbit friend steal the ball that they will track
By the fucking stars we’ll get my brother’s head back!!!”

Devils hurled ball at Hun’s head for decimation
Xbal stopped the ball with magik deflection
The rubber ball rolled deep into the woods
Seven monsters followed it as best they could
The rabbit hid ball and the Lords were deceived
It was then that Hunahpu’s head was retrieved
The brogue worked time to finish off the liars
To beat the devil you must first survive his pyre.

“We’ll jump in willingly you know we ain’t scared!!!”
They did then a powder of their bones was prepared
The devils cast their problem ashes to the stream
Then talks of mermen filled their ears and their dreams
Track Name: R & R (Resurrection & Redemption)
Two old fools appeared at Hell’s doors
With fire magik not seen before
They cut and burned themselves to bits
Then they reformed.

“Bring these minstrels here!” said One and Seven-Death
“Must see this magik before there’s nothing left”
The old fools declined humbled and ashamed
Beaten to obey all part of the game

“Where do you come from?” the Lords asked
“We know not of our strange blood’s past”
“Now kill our dog then best bring him back.”
“That was good but…”

“Can you kill man ‘til he’s at his last breath?”
“Return his life once his heart’s out his chest?”
“With ease” the masked twins replied.
With a hand wave the Lazarus man opened his eyes

“Now kill yourselves, our magik trick staff”
They did and came back having a good laugh
“Please do us next, we want the big fun!!!”
They cut them up

And never ever put the Lords back together
The twins removed the skin and clothes of leather
“It’s now you fools who shit you pants!!!”
Their uncles friends were then torments with ants!
Track Name: Ascension
Okay show’s over, No more blood was spilled
The twins raised their hands the sky-y-yy-yy-y

They cried their names, and those of their fathers
And Huracan was more than thrilled

“So long you been away,
On Earth we thought you’d stay
Welcome back we’ve missed you so-o-oo”

Pixie mist swirled all around them
Then lifted them to the sky
On a cloud of light

Hunahpu the moon, Xbalanque the sun
Always keep those heads raised high-y-yy-yy-y

Never alone, four hundred youths
Help you constellate the sky-y-yy-yy-y

Xibalba fools gone away
Heaven’s love is here to stay
In your hearts we find home

Arch of heaven & Face of Earth
Are connected through the light
Behold the hero twins ascend.
