Track Name: Bishop - Beggars
sullen morning, I reload my gun
eye on the prize, beggars can't be choosers
you're sittin' high, shittin' bricks, as we brace ourselves
you're placing bets, making fists, making nothing at all
solemnly swear a pretty penny to put you down
solemnly swear to tell the truth, so where's the truth?

my friend, we've been doing this a long, long time
don't you know we'll be doing this is a long, long time?

one day your gaze may shift, till then I'll see you in hell

we'll laugh, rejoice, with roofs raised over our heads,
counting down days until we find rest at last
Track Name: Bishop - Branded
you've got five nights, two days to not belong to me
don't forget we branded your cheek, had to do what you had to do
forgot to dot your i's, missed the crosses on your t's
if this happens one more time, it's you putting you on the streets

we hover outside our bodies, as to divert our minds
wandering through golden pastures, the vessel does the grind
they ham it up with handshakes, we'll follow in their suit
when all the numbers add up, we'll take off with the loot
