about

Blood on the Floor is a raw acoustic blues lament inspired by Clouston Hall, a historic building in Franklin, TN that once served as a hospital during the Civil War. The building still bears scars left by cannonball fire and blood stains on the hardwood floors. Wrought with screaming slide guitar licks and deep lyrical imagery, the song reveals yet another facet of Shane Scheib's 'genre-licious' musical nature.

Track Name: Blood on the Floor
still blood on the floor
from the civil war
but those ghosts don't
bother most folks no more
ones who abide that old decree
they're stuck living life just south of free

through the stained past windows
on the hard heart floors
sit the downcast widows
'hind the deadbolt doors
each time that ancient doorbell rings
another angel lose her wings

smoke billows black
makes breathing harder
red chimney stacked
with bricks and martyrs
mother veils her childs eyes
but her cover fails the flames to hide

don't nobody trust
those vacant stairs
to the second level landing
rocking chairs
her timbers whipser only violence
her native language lonely silence

bullets once rang
scars still remain
till heaven hailed down
and changed the reign
Not a man who wanders down these halls
don't read the writing on these walls
