Come On Over And Cry

 

 

Daddy built this land
Scarred and bruised his hands
People ran to kiss those hands
They knelt everywhere he went
Now he lost us our minds
He gave us our fear

Daddy went away
Still unsatisfied
Mad drunk in his burning house
Begged some boy to break his back
Now shivering slow
He begs in the street

What a smashing crystal night

Same thing underneath this skin
Stale blood, self pity and beer
I’m drawing this line
Come on over and cry
