lyrics

everyone
everything
looked suspicious
and seemed to lean.
and the words
that he spoke
were not his own.

there was no whistle
in the wind.
two shots broke the silence
and the only witness was
a wide open moon.

with a whisper
and a wink
he dropped the pistol
and he watched it sink
in a well
that he built
as a child.

across town
in a room
there was a girl
in cheap perfume
she laid her dress
on the bed
and prayed out loud.

she said,
"deliver
us from evil
tell those people
with their steeples
to judge not
for we know not
what we do."

she said,
"deliver
us from evil
tell those people
with their steeples
to judge not
for we know not
what we do."

If there is a jukebox at the end of the universe you will find Kentucky Knife Fight between The Stooges and Tom Waits. ... more
