Carpet Red (free) 04:26
Could I only say she left me For a reason I can’t grasp But not even this redemption Is for me to clutch and clasp Could I only live without her I’d be glad to make it through Just one day’s eternal torture If there’s no one to share with you I mark the barrier I make it safe And make it strong I will not listen I will not care But for how long Blood and wine stain the splinters Of the shattered grail that lies On the carpet red where my hope Writhes in agony and dies
Stoner Flow (free) 04:32
Ostracized, the burning sun Marks you as the hunted one Grains of sand between your teeth In your throat, you just can’t breathe Rushing through the desert land Spurned and parched, with bloodstained hands Time’s up, you’re only steps ahead One more second rest and you’ll be dead El Camino to the end Straight to hell, no curves, no bends El Camino, on the stray Never thought it’d end this way Wanted dead, not worth a dime Hear the distant death bells chime Thinking back to when it all began To hell with it, who gives a fuckin’ damn All that matters is how to escape ‘Cause the mob will never spare or save See yourself ablaze and bled Plunging in the burning red El Camino to the end... On your knees, you catch a glance Of what might be your last chance Weary legs, you won’t get far Get into that rusted car Hunters’ breath upon your neck Grab the wheel and don’t look back Throttle’s wide and off you go Saved by Satan’s Stoner Flow
This Life Sucks (free) 03:48
On my bed I lie Inertia’s my girl’s name I watch and count the flies My life’s a freezing frame Then you come out of the blue To help me turn the tide I didn’t even call you to Replace my shame with pride This life sucks Till you bleed This life sucks But don’t you bleed for me This life sucks Don’t you see? This life sucks Why don’t you fucking leave? Too much time on end There’s nothing we could do Now that I‘ve got a friend I wish it wasn’t you Then you walk out of my room And say you‘ve gotta leave You’re not my bride, I’m not your groom The best we could achieve
It’s nothing left to care about: Humanity’s a dying breed In heaven everything’s for sale In hell there’s pleasure without cost But we are going down With a big grin on our lips And with a swinging of our hips We’re facing death And we will perish With our veins full of champagne And our money’s set aflame With our last laugh We need to fear, there is no doubt The harvest of our end time seed Our bible’s revelation tale Is read and closed and all is lost So we are going down In outrageous luxury With no judge and no jury We’re sentenced to death And we will plunge In our big black limousines And both priests and libertines Will face god’s wrath So we went down With defiant fists and chants of pride On our trip to the other side We’re greeting death And we have perished With our stomachs full of steaks And a cosmic burp that makes Our final breath
Standstill Movement (free) 05:00
Cold grips the ground Wherever I stand or walk What has become of my life Fog fills the air Whenever I breathe out What will become of my life Caught in the twilight A world between the lines Caught in the twilight There’s nothing I call mine All trees are bare As far as I can see What has become of my life Leaves tumble down The muddy, sloping soil What will become of my life Caught in the twilight... How does it feel When change is out of reach The only choice is life or death And you’re rejecting each Trapped on transition’s path The only way you’ll find With no beginning and without end The punishment divine
Song Six (free) 02:04
Hit The Road (free) 04:07
It’s late, I Can’t wait till The dice is thrown again and The bets are placed, the odds are set I feel my World quaking My nerves are showing, shaking My blood boils, I start seeing red Inside I’m All trembling My life’s a hunting, gambling My time to rest is when I’m dead On the chase I Have found me No one to bind and ground me My friend’s the voice inside my head Driving trapped On the overtaking lane Passing everyone No time to wipe and Clean the windowpane Blindly moving on
Drunken Man (free) 04:10
Angry dad’s out for amends For his girl’s lost innocence Cracks the door right off its hinge Full of thirst for blood revenge Coming closer with his knife Out to take my wasted life Hide and seek for life or death Cannot leave this left hand path Pitch black’s the surrounding night No escape from the final fight Coming closer with his gun Gonna end this headless run Flee from the wrath of a drunken man Broken boned, cramped in his trunk I’m tied up and piled with junk A piece of cloth stuffed in my mouth Suffocates my desperate shouts Seems he’s driving out of town Heading for my last sundown Trying in vain to break the lid The pain’s growing with every hit He brakes hard, now he pulls me out I’m pounding hard on the dirty ground Body’s sore, but I won’t stop Give him hell to my blood’s last drop Beaten by the whip of a drunken man In the open desert land Skinned alive by the blowing sand Feel myself and my abject foe Brim with hate from head to toe Coming closer, face to face Only one will live to leave this place Clinched and clung, we’ll fight till death Doomed to walk this left hand path Yeah, I’ve got it, snatched his gun! Now I’ll blast this bastard son! Lured by the shot, loud and dry Vultures plunge down from the sky Feeding on the corpse of a drunken man
John Doe (free) 02:46
So you think you’re dirt Maybe that’s ‘cause it’s just What you are Like the street you’re on Took a wrong turn Left you at its dead end Take my hand and let us fly Into the sky Crying like a wimp Don’t you know There’s more to life than this Dry your tears, get up Bite your lip and step inside my realm Take my hand... Not again! You’re never gonna cry Never have to tell another lie You’re not even ever gonna die What you’re waiting for Now let us fly Not again! You’re never gonna cry Never have to tell another lie You’re not even ever gonna die So take my hand and let us fly
Den Store Tuborg (free) 04:06
Through the virgin field There runs a lonesome path Where this old vagabond is trying To catch his hot and shallow breath No eyes for the beauty Of the green and bright-lit trees Ears deaf to the soothing sound Of birds and humming bees Among his numb thoughts There’s a rumbling, racing one Won’t give his boiling brain A single second rest: Den Store Tuborg! His lips are sprung and sore Sweat dribbling down his face Leaving trails of burning salt In the beating sun’s embrace The path before him has no end Ain’t gonna yield The drink he’s yearning for The drink he’d kill for In the virgin field
The Sun (free) 03:19
The sky‘s a fort of failure Built of grief and pain A castle made of mourning And bricks of stone hard rain Its battlements of lightning Protect these weeping walls The drawbridge lures the joyless To fill its howling halls I shall not see the sun again A crowd of lonesome roamers In the gallery of sin Are gazing at the portraits Of their long lost kith and kin I feel I’m out to lead them I am their true born king The emperor of lies and hate And on my throne of thorns I sing We shall not see the sun again Heed and serve my grieving
Shifting Shape (free) 04:19
I have grown so minuscule That what you’d call a stepping stone Would like a mountain ridicule My feeble, pitied bones This repression of my guilt (For I’m the only one to blame) Will crush the confidence I’ve built And leave me dead ashamed Pound my fists against the wall Repeat! Repeat! Repeat! So I keep getting smaller every day I’ve become so sad and done That what you call a worthy life Just makes me feel so dead and gone Drained of all my strife Retribution’s what I crave I’ll nevermore let you defile That which is me and what will save me From your knowing smile One last punch will put it out Just one more time, just once!


Only three months after joining El Camino, Martin had to record the vocals for this album. Good job, mate!

After the recording was done, it took us one year and thirty-three mixes to get the sound we wanted to achieve. Thanks, Jan, for your immense patience and dedication!
