clown of thorns / spider hacksaw / ©2013

I’ve got a whole new vision of myself
’tis made of marigolds and fleshless wealth
would you like to see me wear my crown of thorn now

out on the town
we did the best we could
to bring the world to its knees

down on the ground
we shed blood for good
to bring the world to our needs

what I’m about to say is
what I meant to say was
I’m dying to give
I’m dying to love

what I’m about to say is
what I meant to say was
I’m dying to live
I’m dying to love

ain’t it a shame what we do to each other
friend, stranger, neighbor, lover
ain’t it a shame the way we hurt each other
friend, enemy, stranger, lover

put us to our rest
for what tomorrow brings
put us to our rest
til we are better beings

I’ve got a whole new version of myself
’tis made of cherry grins and flesh of elf
would you like to see me bring the clown of thorns down

out on the town
we prayed to the druid
to bring the world what it needs

out in the crowd
we preyed upon the lurid
to bring the world what it needs

what I’m about to say is
what I meant to say was
I’m killing to give
I’m killing to love

what I’m about to say is
what I meant to say was
I’m killing to live
I’m killing to love

ain’t it a shame what we do to each other
friend, stranger, neighbor, lover
ain’t it a shame the way we hurt each other
friend, enemy, stranger, lover

what I meant to say was
what I meant to say was
what I meant to say was
I’m killing
I’m dying
I’m dying
I’m killing
I’m killing and dying to love
