about

(A letter to Cain)

lyrics

Forgotten fields of coal black grit
Flies that cry, "abandon shi_!”
Leaving tracks where they've all stepped in it

Oh, captain, captain
They’re coming for me
But the captain's nowhere to be found
He said he'd be with you
When the deal goes down

Flies in the honey, crows in the corn
Your losses are looming as sure as you’re born
Wolf in the meadow, the shepherd is shorn

Your word and your deed
Are wind in the weeds
Hear the murmurs underground
As if you were born
Just to move the dust around

So cruel, so slow the river runs
Dead wood drifting on gilded scum
Can’t pray it away or wish it unrung
When you hear the bells
Of delirium

Backhanded down from father to son
Black hearted country where the bad blood runs
Down the ladder, rung by rung

Straight to Hell
To an idiotic drum
Not a bullet left unsung
What came between you and oblivion?

about

Scott Hrabko Kansas City, Missouri

Kansas City's Scott Hrabko is an independent singer/songwriter who has followed his own restless, shape-shifting muse since the town's late-80s indie rock scene.

“Hrabko’s rootsy songs are filled with trap doors, hidden nooks, and secret passageways. They’re like those dreams within comfortably familiar houses that suddenly have brand new rooms.”
Mike Warren - No Depression
