lyrics

Kick my feet against the sand, I’m leaving this prison as a free man.
I’ll comb my hair and shine my boots, find my girl, my poison fruit.
She’s waiting for me so she said, I’ll buy her flowers when I sell my cigarettes.
Pretty soon my time is up, they’ll set me free with a fifteen second shock.

Then I will be on your side.
I’ll give my love, they’ll take my life.

Speak my sins confess my heart, tell me preacher, “Will lightness follow dark?”
Forgiveness as a cruel man’s tool, it’ll cut your chains then scorn you as a fool.
I’ll close my eyes and count to three, flowers lay beneath my fastened feet.
Pretty soon my time is up, they’ll set me free with a fifteen second shock.

Then I will be on your side.
I’ll give me love, they’ll take my life.
Dead man walking and these feet are slowing down.
I’ll own this crime, I’ll wear this thorny crown.
