about

BLACK LUNG Baltimore, Maryland

In the deadly cold winter of 2014, Black Lung emerged from the underbelly of Baltimore with unprecedented amounts of volume. A union of Adam Bufano, Elias Mays Schutzman (of The Flying Eyes) and multi-instrumentalist Dave Cavalier, the trio toes the line between sonic pain and melodic bliss. ... more

Track Name: Behemoth
The storm is coming
The trees will sway
The lies they told you
About being complete

Don't speak your mind
Just keep your mouth shut
That's how they want you
Eyes blinded and cut

Keep on breathing
That's all you're good for
Brain dead and docile
Awaiting control

It's time to wake up
Pull up the blinds
When the truth strikes you
At last you're alive

Don't you want to know
How to lose control
When the truth strikes you
At last you're alive
Track Name: Ichor
I can feel my blood flow dark ruby
Spilling onto the ground
My blood is all I have left in me
Tried to steal it all, now you’re gone

Ichor how I need you now
To pull me up from the black pit
Ichor won't you come to my aid
So we can survive

Lightning inside my stomach
Shocks my body back to life
I can feel your presence in the ether
But you don’t have power over me

Ichor how I need you now
To pull me up from the black pit
Ichor won't you come to my aid
So we can survive
Track Name: Transmissions
It’s all the same
This town is a black hole

They wanna dig your grave
They wanna seal your fate
You’ll never leave this place

How much is enough?
Time has dried up
And you left behind your soul

They wanna dig your grave
They wanna seal your fate
You’ll never leave this place

You’ll never leave this place
Once they seal your fate
Show them you’re not the same
Track Name: Nerve
You’ve got some nerve coming here
You’re walking right through that door
It was a mistake my dear
You’ve got the face of someone searching for blood
Come a little closer girl
You’re gonna find

You said some words
Tastes of fear
Walking right out that door was not a mistake my dear
You’ve got the face of someone searching for blood
Come a little closer girl
And take mine

Not taking my time when I’m looking for love
Not taking my time when I’m looking for love
I’ll help you find what you’re looking for
I’ll help you find what you’re looking for
Track Name: Crooked Finger
Crooked Finger
Lost love will linger
Don’t you worry
Nothing’s gonna turn out right

Cold hearted singer
Defeat tastes bitter
Don’t give up the fight
Nothing’s gonna turn out right

My heart is a tomb
Where innocence lies
The past is exhumed
Your memory dies

Crooked Finger
Your mind is a killer
Don’t worry away your life
Nothing ever turns out right

My heart is a tomb
Your memory dies
Track Name: Priestess
Gave my money to a doctor
Said, “What I got will make you fly
It's just a little pixie potion
Now mix it up, and drink it down and feel right”
And though I had my reservations
I knew I had to take the bait
Oh no I wasn't hesitating
I drank it down and then I start to feel strange...

He started laughing like a mad man
And brandishing his gun
And then he turned into a wolf man
This pixie potion was no fun
I asked what is this shit you gave me?
He started howling at the moon
Then he turned and he told me
Well "H" I made it just for you...

Gave my money to a Priestess
She said I'll take you to heaven tonight
Listen first then I'll teach you
Get on your knees and pray and then you'll feel right
She had me wrapped around her finger
I had her wrapped around mine
And then she tried to look me in the eye and tell me a lie...

I won't be your fool tonight...
Track Name: See The Enemy
I’m tripping like a freak
I want release
Drink deep from the well
Holy endorphins

American lifestyles and sweat
Bones of father’s hands
Break down inside the stall
I want release
I can see the Enemy
I can’t see the Enemy
Why should I care?
Who do I kill?

Sitting in the cell
My comforting hell
Full of light distractions
While pigs are feasting on the pail
Track Name: 8MM
I was drinking in an empty hole
A dark place I never seen before
Followed a girl that I don’t know
I said hey little mamma won’t you open the door
She said yeah, yeah, yeah…

She put a pill right on my tongue
Are you ready to have some fun?
Oh girl how you know me so well
We’re gonna take this trip together to hell

Shot me through the heart
I didn’t care at all

Well don’t you know it’s the place to be?
None of it is sinning to me
Holy men are up in the clouds
But we know that the party’s underground…

I’m tired of all the lies
You tell the truth and they act surprised
The fact is that nobody knows
What the hell is going on above or below

Shot me through the heart
I didn’t care at all
