16 Horsepower

16 Horsepower was an American alternative country music group based in Denver, Colorado. Their music often invoked religious imagery dealing with conflict, redemption, punishment, and guilt through David Eugene Edwards's lyrics and the heavy use of traditional bluegrass, gospel, and Appalachian instrumentation cross-bred with rock. For the bulk of its career, the band consisted of Edwards, Jean-Yves Tola, and Pascal Humbert, the latter two formerly of the French band Passion Fodder. After releasing four studio albums and touring extensively, the group broke up in 2005, citing "mostly political and spiritual" differences. The members remain active in the groups Woven Hand and Lilium. more »

This is the room, the start of it all
No portrait so fine, only sheets on the wall
I've seen the nights filled with bloodsport and pain
And the bodies obtained, the bodies obtained
Where will it end?

These are your friends
From childhood through youth
Who goaded you on, demanded full proof
Withdrawal pain's hard; it can do you right in
So distorted and thin, distorted and thin
Where will it end?

This is the car at the edge of the road
There's nothing disturbed
All the windows are closed
I guess you were right when we talked in the heat
There's no room for the weak
No room for the weak
Where will it end?

This is the room, the start of it all
Through childhood, through youth
I remember it all
I've seen the nights filled with bloodsport and pain
And the bodies obtained, the bodies obtained
Where will it end?
