lyrics

this is a story ‘bout a boy / ain’t got no friends / ain’t got no joy / not full of evil by design / but by his birth and by his sign / well he was born with cloven tongue / they cut it out when he was young / they sewed his lips shut with a thread / oh! no more wicked words were said

he learned to keep it deep inside / he had no voice / he had no pride / he learned to hide it like a thief / and turn to drinking for relief / he wandered through his weeks and years / he showed no smile / shed no tears / cause he has drunk the blood of love / and he has ate the turtle dove

he had a wife / he had a home / an axe to grind / a blade to hone / a loaded gun is lots of fun / yeah when he’s drunk and all alone / he always knew the walls would fall / he always knew the flames would rise / he always knew that he would burn / and you could see it in his eyes

so won’t you tell me could you choose / to walk a mile in his shoes / if you only knew that you would lose / to those goddamn gunmetal blues?
