Golden Smog lyrics help

I'm looking for an official (or at least accurate) source for Golden Smog lyrics. I'm particularly interested in the lyrics to "Without A Struggle" from the "Blood on the Slacks" EP. Any suggestions?

Yeah, that's what I found!

I know they have to file official lyrics somewhere to copyright the song, but apparently that is not accessible on the web.

Here's my best stab, but it's by no means "official", I just love the song and have listened to it 3-4 times in a row on many occasions...:


Threatened with no anger, Lord
In a sea of indecision
Lost in fields of languish, Lord
As I am, I cannot stand

I’m here to make a declaration:
Won’t fall without a struggle
And I accept your invitation
Follow when you fall

It’s clear to me that I must join the battle near at hand
Fly to where the thunder blares and lightning flashes bright

Had this revelation, Lord
Still my recent break
Listened to the whisperin’ of the sweet and wreckless wind

I’m here to make this promise dear:
Won’t fall without a struggle
And I accept your invitation
Follow when you fall

I’m here to make this promise dear:
Won’t fail without a struggle
And I accept your invitation
Follow when you fall
It’s clear to me that I must join the battle near at hand
Fly to where the cannons blare and lightning flashes bright
