I don't wanna hear the news Shut your mouth before you speak If I don't hear it it's not real The less you know the less you feel Shut up High above the trees I'll fly From a mountain I will fall Searching for the promised land Then buy a ticket stand in line Shut up I find this hard to tell Jumping down the wishing well Soon I'm going to explode Before I get to take control

Roadburner 05:58
They call me the roadburner 'Cause I'm driving day and night People guess my name But no one ever gets it right Now the road becomes my mistress How I love her sweet caress She's the only one who listens When I'm making sense I never stop Why did you just have to smoke me Like I was your last cigarette And the sad thing is I liked it When you sucked me dry I see a hobo eating roadkill With a vulture by his side Some say we live the life we earned In former lives I never stop Why do you want to drag my body home? Roadburner! You're a viper, you're a vixen You're a goddess, you're a saint Through the desert, in my half-dreams All of which are so unreal Every second on the highway Every mile, you make me sweat I'm your ashtray, I'm your lapdog And I cannot understand Why do you want to drag my body home? Roadburner! Christ, I've finally found the fucking light I con-fucking-fess that you were right
4.
We are stars Floating 'round in the infinite black And you see the light of some of our friends That have already gone Swept away It's a glimpse We are a second on the clock of time Follow me into the void That I once called my home When it all went dark And we flew between the giants and the dwarfs Struck with awe when you realize We're just a second on the clock of time Yeah the sun will swallow All of us into the black hole This is your call Get out before it's too late This is your call Open the door get out there
5.
When the road hits another crossroad And I don't know which way to go I ask help to my dashboard Jesus Who decides at every turn And the sand grinds between my teeth With every bite I take 'Cause I ate the dust of everyone Who passed me by Is it really written in the stars Who I will be? 'Cause they seem So very far away to affect me Three times in a row I sat upon this throne Headlight caught my eye Oh what a way to die Three times is a charm What will the third time be? Someone's funeral Oh god I hope it will be me When I look at my dashboard Jesus He nods his holy head I can't see far past my headlights But he sees everything When the road takes another U-turn I give up free will It's much easier to lay it in god's hands To guide my steering wheel

The Mammoth 11:00
Black rain is coming down Pumping poison through the ground The sun won't shine For me no more Gotta close the iron door Black heart is beating still Can you feel the solemn thrill Colors seem so strange to me now Well-adjusted to the dark Trampling down Beating me down He's coming You better beware The mammoth is here He's coming to wipe it clean Trampling down Beating me down He's coming You better beware He's after you Six signs are warning me Seven soldiers raise their cup Your doom is coming down the hill Say a prayer and close your eyes

The Evil Engineer review, written by Bill Goodman

"I throughly enjoyed this album from the moment i hit play. The beat, the grooves, and the riffs are some of the best i've heard in awhile."

The Metal Nexus, written by Dragon

"Chock full of ambience-inducing depth and massively monstrous pedal-driven guitar pyrotechnics, The Mammoth serves as the ideal aural mission statement for what Fire Down Below are all about: controlled sonic chaos and absolutely stunning executions of adrenalized excitement. “Viper Vixen Goddess Saint” will easily find placement on several Best Of 2016 year-end lists and much deservedly so for this is an ideally stand-alone opus."

Doomspeakers review, written by Will

"Fire Down Below have all the ingredients for a proper desert brew. Don’t let anyone ever tell you there aren’t any deserts in Belgium. It just can’t be true – not when bands like Fire Down Below are producing albums like Viper Vixen Goddess Saint. There’s deserts. There’s guitars. There’s peyote too."

Merchants of Air review

"You surely need this album in your collection, placed right in between your favorites from Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss and Fu Manchu."
