The Folk song incorporates a a New Orleans Blues meets Opera feel to it. The Debt is the cord that holds us to a spellbinding feed.  This operatic piece personalises the debt to present this reaper’s view on her acts and her victims. Tiki Black wrote the lyrics and the music. The track itself is produced, mixed and mastered by Parr Street resident recording engineer Russell Cottier as it appears on the second album.

The Debt Lyrics

I am the Debt,
I am the Debt
So save now, but later or sooner,
You’ll pay

I am the Debt,
I am the sweat
Trickling down your vein
Your freedom’s at stake

Gratitude, loyalty, duty, love, yes call me names
Gratitude, loyalty, duty, love, choose a name
Gratitude, loyalty, duty, love, yes call me names

Gone, she’s gone
The reaper is gone
Left me free and void

I am the Debt,
I am the threat
The wager for this game
On freedom, I sate
