Five hounds low and baying,
listen to the pack call.
Softer than her smiling,
as distant as her fall.

Five hounds closing in now,
running through foggy morn'
Louder, hear them baying.
Louder, hear the hunter's horn.

And with a last shudder,
whispered out my name and,
low and breathing harboured,
some deep secret shame.

Five hounds running close now,
shapes through fog apart.
Can't you hear them howling,
Can't you hear their beating hearts.

Flowers grasped and offered,
shadowed on her field.
Quiet hands are shaking,
uneasy heart is revealed.

Five hounds low and baying,
running through foggy morn'
Louder hear them coming.
Louder hear the hunter's horn.

Bag of snakes crazy. We are from Ottawa and play a wide variety of musical styles all rooted in a hard-rock sensibility. We're a three piece angular garage-rock power trio in the tradition of James Gang, Grand Funk, Cream and sometimes even Rush.
