Pail Of Water

you owe me money cos
in your last life i was
a good friend of yours
that’s right

see this gun i got
i point it like a cop
shoot, i’ll tell
you what

this is no grief, it is no black
this is no blue at all
it’s coal nor soup nor penny dimes
it is a pail of water

where you going? don’t sound
like you’re from around here son
is that your friend?
i see he’s out on his knees

say that’s a pretty fact
this town can
be like that
ooiieee

this is no grief, it is no black
this is no blue at all
it’s coal nor soup nor penny dimes
it is a pail of water

you learn to mumble right
step off into the night
see getting rich
it takes too long

y’wanna live a piece
head right across the street
steal a wink before the
feeling’s gone
