Somewhere in the desert is a man with a gun out for me I can’t decide if I should attempt to fight or if I should flee Maybe in the end there is a truth that nobody wants to see Maybe in the end the King’s life was just not made for me I am losing control Of my body and soul On a throne made of gold I roll like a wave past my soul Like a wave passed my soul Like a wave passed my soul On a throne made of gold I roll like a wave past my soul I can see ahead of me Building up in front of me I can see inside of me Radiotelegraphy Simmering technology Satisfiability Rapid musicality Through Maruchani tethering Six nickel strings Wood bones Steel meat Something unfamiliar Is coursing right through my bones And I wasn’t so sure Of these heavenly tones But inside my guitar Is the power I hold Since the Maruchan Man Sent a wave past my soul Like a wave passed my soul Like a wave passed my soul On a throne made of gold I roll like a wave past my soul Now I’ll have my revenge With a smile on my face And I’ll play such a chord To create such a space And I know that you hunt Hoping just to find me But if I find you first Brutal death you will see So I gather my son And I gather my steed And we’ll go to the Hills Looking for human meat And I’ll burn that place down Using fire and coal As the Maruchan Man Sends a wave past your soul

Somewhere in the desert is a hot spring Steaming all around, synthesizing Why does it appear appetizing Maybe it’s a truth I am finding Somewhere in the desert is an army Looking all around just to find me Maybe you were better off in hiding There will never be another true King Everybody waiting in the prison Everybody answer to The Warden Maybe influence his decision Do not interrupt the tunnel vision “I don’t wanna go back to The Hills! I don’t wanna go back to The Hills! Maybe I would rather rot in prison waiting for my death than getting killed! Everybody else I know is dead Everybody wants to quit instead I just want to walk with Buford’s head! I just want to walk with Buford’s head!” Everybody's freed by the Bagman Everybody’s headed to the cow-man Everybody’s looking for death’s hand Not another day shall he stand Everybody moving with a groove Groovin’ on the way to Baytu Groovin’ on the way to the cow-man Praise the young Maruchan Man On the edge of Baytu I am waiting for you (We are coming in stride! No more places to hide!) I am son of a god! Maruchani blood! (Underestimating Nearly everything) Prisoners clear the horizon Bullets fired and battle begun Where did this new army come from? Betrayed by my only son Now I see things perfectly clear Bagman has no business here Somebody’s breached the castle walls And now it’s time for me to fear Somebody is coming up the stairwell Who it might be I can’t tell Who it might be is Rock Suddenly my heart stopped Orbiting my brain is a shadow Waiting for the Man on the plateau King Buford is dead! Did you hear what I said? Maruchan Man, it’s me Am I your new King? Sitting on the throne I feel so at home Maybe it’s time to be Somebody they can see So the Maruchan Man Appeared right before me And he reached out his hand Said to follow his lead So we left this old spot Traveled time and space And they called me “Free Rock” Back on Guyamar’s face But the Man said to me “Things are much different now” And although I agreed I did not realize how I had changed every life Every young, grown, and old When the Maruchan Man Sent a wave passed my soul When I opened my eyes I could not see or hear But with all of my strength I would too persevere And become that King Rock My long awaited fate With the power I hold I will open the gate Calling Space Jamaica, Atlantis one and two To behold such a force Let the portals consume And the worlds would combine In a shattering fold As the Maruchan Man Sent a wave passed your soul I can see ahead of me Building up in front of me Look at a family tree And tell me what it is you see Something is a part of me I have become everything Maruchan is all of me Who am I if I am me?

about

For a long time, we've wanted to make an album that leaned as hard into our progressive rock influences as this does, but I didn't imagine it'd happen so soon. On the day we wrapped DIRTY DISCO, we found ourselves with an abundance of free time; time we used to record this album. We had the studio fine-tuned for DISCO's lo-fi appeal, but when we turned the amps up and let loose for BUFORD'S REVENGE, that gear was pushed to its' limits and we ended up with our grittiest and most untamed album to date.
