Dust Devil 02:46
Troubled, the man, that spins uncontrolled, settle down your soul, settle down your soul ole’ dust devil, won’t be consoled settle down your soul, settle down your soul Troubled, the man, that wrestle with the wind settle down your soul, settle down your soul ole’ dust devil, never will give in settle down your soul, settle down your soul Troubled, the man who don’t look back settle down your soul, settle down your soul ole’ dust devil, sweepin’ up his track settle down your soul, settle down your soul

Pilgrim 03:05
The pilgrim came from far away Down by the river’s side Taking a look around he sees His illusion in the breeze The water deep and the water wide Down by the riverside He swore, by God, he’d make a stand In the country of endless sand The pilgrim cursed the water ways Down by the riverside Made him a plan to build a barge One dollar was the crossing charge There’s not much trade on this desert trail Down by the river’s side The sun shines hot and the days drag on And he hums a spiteful song When angry men meet angry men Down by the rivers side Denied his silver, got paid in lead The rivers now streaked in red A long time now he’s turned to soap Down by the river side An angry life, There’s no repeats What’s carried is what you keep

War 03:50
Already started carrying on, war is what they want Set their ships to sailin’, get everybody on Already they’ve started carrying on, and War is in the air Somebody’s got a plan now somebody’s gonna’ pay Beat the drums now loudly, so everyone can hear Somebody’s got a plan now and somebody’s gonna’ pay Already their talking vengeance, vengeance what they want Already their talking waring now and waring will be done They really don’t mind to sacrifice, everything that you’ve got Everybody’s talking waring, and waring’s goin’ on Already their talking vengeance, vengeance what they want Already their talking waring now and waring will be done

Faith 03:53
One more prank at the county fair, One more toast to the friends we all cherish, One more song from your favorite country singer Saying, “I hear that train a coming” One more ride in your Cadillac, One more night that you would never give back One more day I would ask you to stay But I know you must be going You wanna just think, that the good times will just never end You wanna have faith, that it’s all is comin’ round again But you can’t believe that the life of the party has past Just like that, so fast, so fast One more plan to change the world now One more pair of high heeled shoes for you to wear now One more kiss as the camp fire blazes on us now You’re the one to try anything now, Your’re the one to say, don’t stop your dreamin’ Got to hit the road now, you can hear that train a callin’ You wanna just think, that the good times will just never end You wanna have faith, that its all is comin’ round again But you can’t believe that the life of the party has passed, Just like that, so fast, so fast, You never feel safe that you’ve given it all that you’ve got If you’re lookin’ for faith, go get it from someone who’s got it And you can’t believe the life of the party has past, Just like that, so fast, so fast, so fast, so fast.

Down the longest trail to heartache Squandered youth along the way The Buzzards pick my joy-bones clean  In a wasteland of yesterday— In a wasteland of yesterday.          I go to bed just out of habit          I know good men can drown in dreams          So I fight to stay awake all night          In the rip tides of memories          In the rip tides of memories.   Down the steepest trail to heartache I’m not predator, I’m prey, I don’t dare face God or Satan In wastelands of yesterday— In wastelands of yesterday.          With every step out on the edges           I remind myself to breathe          But one breath can last forever          When all your faith is make believe          When all your faith is make believe. Regrets and second guesses— they’re for the weak-of-heart -- Don’t deliver me from yesterdays, until death do us part. Down the darkest trail to heartache I don’t curse and I don’t pray I kiss the myst'ry with a whisper In wastelands of yesterday―  In wastelands of yesterday. I kiss the myst'ry with a whisper In wastelands of yesterday. Down the darkest trail to heartache

Poor Boys 03:41
Home of the free and land of the brave Aren’t you the new, and the old ones too It’s what you make with an open field Has it been calling now, calling you Refrain: Poor boys in love with summertime Poor boys just don’t know what to do You love a game where the ball is free You play it hard, you cover your ground Out of the park – straight out of the park You’re friends and rivals in this angry old town Refrain: It’s just a game, it’s just a game that you choose. You are the heroes of the long summer nights My simple pleasure on a worn-out chair You are the idols of the fading light Refrain: Home of the free and land of the brave Aren’t you the new, and the old ones too It’s what you make with an open field Has it been calling now, calling you Has it been calling now, calling you, Callin’ you, Callin’ Callin’ Refrain:

I am the lord of desert. In darkness and light I shall reign I am the holy one, who brings the heat from freezing winds I am the son of wilderness, an empty shell of wind and bones I am the one to smite the fiery sunset with my golden sword The ground shall shake and all moisture from the land will be wrung out I command the clouds to race overhead and the rocks shall spit at a wet sky. And the earth shall undulate in distant heat and ye shall become mirage I write these words and they paint the desert sand. I am the Lord of the desert. In blistering sun and icy cold I am the one who darkens the land and lashes your tents with dust and sand I am the one who forms black clay, which begets blackbird and then Raven, King of the passage I shall reign over many and hold dominion over all emptiness I am the Lord of the Desert, invisible and immutable I am the warlord -- formations of Lizards marching across the sand. I command coyote to beseech the moon to rise. I am gone and come again I am gone and come again

about

For 3hattrio, the Southwest desert has an almost spiritual significance. Rooted in the natural world of their sacred homeland near Zion National Park in Utah, they say that their genre is “American desert music,” a simple idea for a complex sound. The music 3hattrio are making on their new album, Lord of the Desert, sounds more like extended landscapes of sound, bare mesas that ring with electronic echoes of acoustic instruments, twisting and turning as the wind shifts. On Lord of the Desert, to be released February 23, 2018, 3hattrio mix the routine with the unusual, fusing American folk music with outsider elements like autotune, psychedelia, and minimalism. It’s a wildly unusual sound, but the product of three very different musicians coming together to form something new.
