lyrics

With the shades pulled, at dawn I died as she settled in to treat all my wounds.
She said "I'm taking your name in exchange for this gun. It's an even trade."

Our worst cried out for the lawlessness of youth,
"It's unfortunate, but nothing compels you…"
Heads down for the wicked lies they taught as truth.
"It's unfortunate, but no one goes with you…
You know why."

That bastard, he swore (like fly coated sugar cane) of the hell he'd endured.
Behind the bulwark it rained. Wash away what we've done, it's all that remains…

We first cried out for the lawlessness of youth,
"It's unfortunate, but nothing compels you…"
Heads down for the wicked lies they taught as truth.
"It's unfortunate, but no one goes with you…
You know why."

Never bent to the blessed cell,
so far they've unfortunately seen you complete
those that had fought it down
over the shore that could be it's own beat.

But what they would have shown you,
this dance that the wicked do.
You know...

Soon these waters rise between us.
The flood has come to forget
the wretch that had seen you off right.

Still they would have figured it out,
given time enough I would have settled.
(But you know you're better off.)

With the tide that brought their blood in,
uncomfortably cleaned
off the trickiest of all of these men,
we fall. (And you know why…)
