about

We won the West.
And it cost everyone plenty.

lyrics

woke up
rode west
while the world
was still sleeping
all doubts
regrets
are cargo
not worth keeping

bridge:
when all is won
and said and done
and the frontier is behind us
will we resent
will we lament
what we’re becoming

the sun
went down
now the world
is busy sleeping
all fear
regrets
are amplified
by the moonlight

bridge:
when all is won
and said and done
and the frontier is behind us
will we lament
will we resent
what we’ve become…

ambushed
attacked
the arrow
pierced the heart
lie back
relax
and drift
among the stars

hook:
destiny manifest
concrete from shore to shore
there are riches to be made
and we’ll keep making more
cars and planes and trains
to drive us to the brink
fulfill our every desire
so we don’t have to think
what we don’t understand
our instinct is to kill...

and there is no quick fix
there’s no silver bullet
there is no resolve
if there’s no resolution
we’re broken in our souls
we’re broken at our core
we either run away
or conquer and destroy
we can’t address the cause
if we’re busy treating symptoms

Men of Science, Men of Faith is a project of NY-based artist Mike Jones. Inspired by a road trip through New Mexico in early 2015, "New Mexico" is simultaneously a love letter to the state and a meditation on the myth of the Old West and the American experience of the 20th century, from Route 66 kitsch to the atomic bomb. ... more
