about

HorseBite Rigby, Idaho

I'm just a one-man-band, based out of Rigby Idaho, trying to spread my music to as many people as possible. All of my music is pay-your-own-price and i would much rather have someone listen to my music for free than to not listen to it at all because they HAVE to pay. But if you do feel like throwing down any donations, they will be greatly appreciated. Enjoy! ... more

Track Name: Creatures
Synchronized hearts exploding in front of me
My anatomy is holding a knife

I pull back to see something holding me
Not the ghost of me just ghosts from the past

Trachea's cracked expecting a crumbling
I’ve quit wondering if I’m alive and

I talk back to creatures still holding me
Please let go of me I’ll never go back

Creature stop Creature stop Creature stop no
Creature stop Creature stop. Please let me go
Creature stop Creature stop Creature stop no!!
Creature stop Creature stop. Please let me go!!


And I’ll fall because I’m

Holding my breath in hopes that I’ll float away
I’m too slow today because I’m a wreck and

Now I see I’m holding myself today
My own hell today but now I can breathe
Track Name: Let's Take a Walk
Keep the door closed at all times
I’m trapped in my mind
Keep your head open all the time

And if you walk through your mind
There’s a path to find
I take a walk there all the time

Pack light take a left take a right
Take a light because my mind gets dark
Stand still make a stop make a kill
Make a will stop making art.

Cave drip make a sound take a sip
Sink a ship because it’s going down
Chop down green trees make em brown
Build a town to burn it down

Spit dirt make em cry make em hurt
Take a turn filling up the mud
Punch this make a ball make a fist
Make a wish quit drinking blood

White eyes rolling back rolling high
Roll em wide because my eyes get black
Tissue make it black make it blue
Make it you shot in the back
Track Name: We Were Right (And You Were Wrong)
I keep trying to be heard
But all the people say I’m not the one
They just turn their heads away
Parents can’t learn knowledge from their sons

But there will come a day
When you will pray
For death because you’ll know

We were right
And you were wrong
We were right
All along
And we’ll go
Our separate ways
We’ll beat our drum
You’ll play your games

You laugh and scream and yell at us
But you won’t listen to a single song
You burn our houses to the ground
While singing in the flames that we are wrong

But there will come a day
when you’ll burn your cards you play
and you won’t know how to hide

that we were right
and you were wrong
we were right
all along
And we will go
Our separate ways
We’ll beat our drum
You’ll play your games
Track Name: The Great Game
Busy, Spinning. We all fall
Keep it running. Til’ we all
Tip our scales to hard to one side
We can confide….with the devil

Keeping faith. What we know.
Keep it scarlet in the snow.
Keep yourself straight. keep yourself white.
We can confide….with ourselves

Spinning so fast try to relax
Here’s something to take away
Here’s something to give back

All of us, we’re on this ride for life
All of us, we’re on this ride for life

Spitting venom, to the top
Sink in deeper try to stop
If we stop, we die. we can try
to keep our life….to align

I’m done running. Coming running
I am something I can’t face
Lock me in a closet strumming
On my tendons…. I’m blazed

Busy, Spinning. We all fall
Keep it running. Til’ we all
Tip our scales to hard to one side
We can confide….with the devil

Keeping faith. What we know.
Keep it scarlet in the snow.
Keep yourself straight. keep yourself white.
We can confide….with ourselves
Track Name: Sip of the Water (USA Demo)
Quench your thirst
Take a sip of the water
Take a chip off your soul
Before you know

Love the taste
As it flows down your throat
Don’t’ forget to swallow
You’ll choke
Track Name: The Society that Cried Wolf
Goodnight. hold your babies tight
It’s gonna be alright
Goodnight. hold your babies tight
Don’t let ‘em get eaten tonight

Because they’re gonna be alright
They’re gonna be alright……for tonight

Goodnight. hold your babies tight
They’re at the door again
Goodnight. hold your babies tight
They’re gonna get ‘em in the end

But they’re gonna be alright
They’re gonna be alright……for tonight

But wait until tomorrow comes
The morning breaks, the night is done
You can hide from everyone
But you can’t hide from them

They’ll find your kids; they’ll slice ‘em up
They’ll take the ones you truly love
They’ll eat their hearts then throw them up
Because you can’t hide from them
Track Name: Lovers in the Arteries
I’ll keep you deep inside my
Heart where I’ll give us a new
Start in my artery tonight

And if you say it’s getting
Tight I will pull out my own
Knife and I’ll set you free tonight

I’ll build a boat out of my
Flesh and you’ll sail inside my
Chest and we’ll live upon the tide

We’ll never grow up and get
Old and we’ll never see the
Cold cuz my temperature’s just right

We’ll tell our stories to the
Brain and they’ll never be the
Same cuz we’ll never tell the start

We’ll take a trip down to the
Lungs where we’ll sing our songs we
Sung when we lived inside the heart

You smashed my heart
I slit your throat
But I still LOVE YOU
Yeah I still LOVE YOU

You’ll spill my guts
I’ll eat your skin
Because I LOVE YOU
I’ll Always LOVE YOU

We’ll raise our family deep and
They’ll learn and play amongst the
Cells and we’ll watch them make new friends

We’ll teach them how to live in
Blood and they’ll use the tissue
Cuz this will be home ‘til the end.

You smashed my heart
I slit your throat
But I still LOVE YOU
Yeah I still LOVE YOU

You’ll spill my guts
I’ll eat your skin
Because I LOVE YOU
I’ll Always LOVE YOU
Track Name: Everything is a Theory
Everything is a Theory
Now we're here, everything is so clear
Track Name: The Lock [Feat. Metaphysical Apostle]
We keep our keys held tight
We keep our house alight
We keep ourselves up right
But there’s a lock tonight

We keep the curtains wide
We scream into the night
We try so hard we try
But there’s a lock tonight

and we sink deeper down
we sink deeper down
We throw these sheets down to the street
As we sink deeper down

We keep our grain brushed white
We keep our lamps up bright
We keep our eyes in sight
But there’s a lock tonight

We keep the heat just right
We keep our dreams a fright
We keep our keys held tight
But there’s a lock tonight
Track Name: Holy Umbrella, Batman!
Drip drip drip
Her sweater rip rip ripped
But there’s just 6 blocks to go

Shots from guns
She run run runs
And there’s still 5 blocks to go

Black, wet, street
It soaks her perfect feet
But there’s just 4 blocks to go

Drip drip drip
She starts to slip slip slip
But there’s still 3 blocks to go

3 more blocks 'til you’re safe and sound
It’s not that far to go
but 3 more blocks is enough to drown
when your umbrella’s full of holes

Holy umbrella
Please don’t tell her
I’m bringing the rain and the lightning
Holy umbrella
Please don’t tell her
I’m bringing the rain rain rain

Soaking wet
It starts to fill her chest
But there’s just 2 blocks to go

Sinking deep
She’ll curse this flooded street
Because there’s just 1 block to go

Holy umbrella
Please don’t tell her
I’m bringing the rain and the lightning
Holy umbrella
Please don’t tell her
I’m bringing the rain rain rain
Track Name: An Inanimate Object
You’ve got a blade
You can cut me away
Just let me enjoy my last day

I’ll soak up the sun
And let the rain come
Because I’m nothing less than a blade

You can chop at my skin
Commit your god’s sin
Just let me believe in the dirt

So roll up your sleeves
There’s no time to grieve
Because you’re nothing more than your words

You're nothing more, and I'm nothing less than a blade
Track Name: Firehouse Blues [Feat. HorseBite's Murder of Crows]
This house is burning to the ground
All because the matches I have found
As I sit and watch the glowing farm
I’ll carve a star into my arm

The smoke is bending with the sky
And it steals the workers from their hive
So I run and hide inside a tree
At the sight of a thousand burning bees

A thousand burning bees!
Track Name: You're the Meanest Man I Know, with a Beard [Re-Release]
You could be my sunshine

or you could be a werewolf
You could strike in the dark
You could dig your claws into my chest and rip out my heart

or be a spider

or you could be a spider
and when I’m stuck in your web
you could slowly eat my heart out
while you savor my head

or be a snake
and put your venom inside
and when I finally trust, I'll decompose from the inside

because your poison
could go straight to my heart
and then the only antidote is go back to the start

hello, how are you?
My name is “how do you do?”
Why don’t you have a seat and let me tell you how…

Or you could be a grizzly bear
Rip my heart from my chest
And leave me in the tent where I can have my final rest
From all these people.
“Where’s the killer, tonight?
Waiting in the dark to carve your heart

you could be a manowar
you could give me a hug
you could pull me to the bottom where the water fills my lungs

or be an island
and let me sit on your coast
or be the other half of it I’ll tell you how..

you could be my sunshine
you could be my sunshine
shine your light
shine on me
let it be the only light I see
you could be my sunshine
(You could be my sunshine
and I could be the breeze
you could be sunshine on my trees
you could be my sunshine
whenever I feel rain
you could be my weather for today)

or you could be a worm
Dig your way through my heart
And when you’re finished feasting
Leave me cold in the dark

Or be a knife
digging into my side
but you’re holding all my blood in
if I pull you out I’ll die

you’re like a boulder
your crushing weight on my chest
but if I roll you off of me, I’ll never take a breath again

you’ll say…….we could be happy
you’ll say…….I’ll never hurt you
but

you could be my sunshine
you could be my sunshine
shine your light
shine on me
let it be the only thing I see
you could be my sunshine
(You could be my sunshine
and I could be the breeze
you could be sunshine on my trees
you could be my sunshine
whenever I feel rain
you could be my weather for today)

Shine your light. Let it shine.
