lyrics

I am no Ostrogoth
Theoderic the Great
never conquered here
kept these hills

step dwellers
people of the pebbly coast
find level
find level
Greuthungi—east
Tervingi—west
look to mars
worship mars

Huns gave pause
Hunics rule Danube
flee to the Balkans
Death to Attila

Strabbo, son of Triarius
Odoacer, disposer of Augustulus
away
Byzantine-Frankish conspiracy
allies not what they seem
check-mate
history

now your shortened and pale
and wearing mascara
wearing mascara
brooding

Rainstick Cowbell Portland, Oregon

“Rainstick Cowbell makes searing music that’s intensely personal…[from] intense, clear-eyed rants to unhinged exorcisms. It’s exhilarating to hear music this raw.”
—Portland Mercury
