    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    Update again: Hopefully this will be out soon. It's in the hands of the person mastering it. Now we wait.
    Update: Everything is recorded, just putting the final touches on and getting everything mastered. Yay!
    UPDATE: Hey lovelies! We've had to postpone one more time (hopefully for the last time) Considering everyone working on the album is doing it for free, we're not too upset about it. We want you to have the very best we can squeeze out of ourselves, so thank you so much for your patience. It's coming, I promise.
    There will probably be some other goodies especially for pre-orders, but we aren't real clear on the details. Maybe a nice PDF booklet of all the words to the songs, or some audio commentary from the band. Let us know what juicy bonuses you want.

      $12 USD  or more

about

The Feral Folk Seattle, Washington

What happens when you mix smart, confessional songwriting with driving passion? Most likely, something like the Feral Folk. Each member may draw from a seemingly clashing background, but they've combined their styles into something with intellectual sex appeal. ... more

Track Name: Jimmy's Song
Jimmy got sent off when he was just 18
fresh out of high school
still full of dreams
wanted to change the world
so he joined the military
got sent home a few month's later
barely enough to burry
so Jimmy may you rest in peace
for you served your time in war
maybe some day we'll figure out
just what you died for

At the funeral the mourning Mother
leaning on the arms of a younger brother
reads a letter with tears in her eyes
that Jimmy sent just before he died
said "Mom, I don't think I can take much more,
now that I've seen the true face of war"
So Jimmy may you rest in peace
for you've served your time in war
maybe someday we'll figure out
just what you died for.

Still the mother reads.
letter clenched in her hands
all Jimmy said when he
killed his first man
said "I thought I did good,
I killed the enemy, but when I looked down
he was even younger than me
and I hated myself
for what I had done
whatever reason that he died for
I hope it was a good one."

So Jimmy may you rest in peace
for you served your time in war
and maybe someday
we'll figure out
just what you died for.
Track Name: Sharp Teeth
When the pushing turns to shoving
and creation begs for destruction
won't you rip into me
with those sharp sharp teeth
make me yearn
make me burn
make me bleed

When my throats growing tight
and I'm too hoarse to sing
curled up round my fear
my light dimming
when my heart's turned to stone
and my passion's gone cold
I need you
I need you

When I'm playing too safe
when I push life away
when I build a fortress
to run from my pain
when I'm ice to the touch
melt me with your love
I need you
I need you

When the pushing
turns to shoving
and creation
begs for destruction
wont you rip into me
with those sharp sharp teeth
make me yearn
make me burn
make me bleed

oooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooo

When they're tearing me down
when I'm trapped by their games
folding in on myself
to appease their jealous ways
when I'm close to giving in
bring me back to life again
I need you
I need you

When the pushing
Turns to shoving
and creation
begs for destruction
won't you rip into me
with those sharp sharp teeth
make me yearn
make me burn
make me bleed
Track Name: Scorpio Moon - Live
Just when I think I've got you out of my system
Just when I think I've pushed you off of my mind
Just when my friend's start to sigh in relief
the stars go and mis-align
the fate's threads must have gotten tangled
the planets must be retrograde
this time I thought I had it handled
but you're deadlier than night shade

This Scorpio moon
has me thinking of you
want your lips scalding my skin
take me back to the flames
in your brimstone embrace
cause you look too good when you sin

Just when I think I've got my self back together
just when I think I've finally changed my ways
just when I think I'm done with you forever
you set my dreams ablaze
what kind of magic puts you under my skin
what kind of sorcery have you got in play
you've got your hooks and you're reeling me in
I should know better than to stay

This Scorpio moon
has me thinking of you
want your lips scalding my skin
take me back to the flames
in your brimstone embrace
cause you look too good when you sin

This Scorpio moon
has me thinking of you
want your lips scalding my skin
take me back to the flames
in your brimstone embrace
cause you look too good when you sin
