    "By the end of Blackgrass Express, the debut album by the Fort Worth-by-way-of-Burleson husband-and-wife folk outfit Phantom Sensation, you can tell their songwriting has been affected as much by movies as it has by punk. Each song unfolds with a beginning, middle, and end, a sequence of scenes in a larger narrative about a woman coming to terms with her own quest for revenge, stuck on a train peopled by souls damned from their own vengeance."

This story of vengeance is centuries old.


Fire's burnin'
Fire's burnin'
Flames still licking my feet

Smoke is risin'
Smoke is risin'
Devil's hot on my trail

Blood is boilin'
Blood is boilin'
Too scared to run, Too scared to hide
Can't just die here like a dog on the ground

Night is fallin'
Night is fallin'
Sun is sinkin!
There's a tombstone out there with my name on it

Another nail in the coffin,
Another body for the fire
The sun goes down on one hundred fresh graves

Earth is screamin'
Earth is screamin'
When God steps on your ant hill is it your fate to die
What's the use in tryin'

Ain't a woman alive who's seen the things I've seen
Willing to stay blind
Pretend its all okay when, really, it ain't at all

In this world of illusion
Only the truth will shne through
Burning like a fire in the night!
