    "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."

The story of another hollow man with vengeance burning in his heart.


His eyes were hollow like a dead man
He's seen better days
Days of wonder and of glory
But that turned into a different story
When his shallow heart, it burnt up from the inside out

He was hollow like a dead man
That means open season
For an evil so strong
It'll turn your heart into a deep, dark hole


So are you listening?
No, I mean, are you really hearing what I'm saying
I'm sayin freedom, true freedom
Is just beyond the walls of our mental prisons
But that's just human nature, To want what you can't have
And to fix what ain't broke


How could we be so shallow
Pourin gasoline into the flame
The Devil no where around to blame
You can't beat God at his own game


from Blackgrass Express, released July 29, 2016
