lyrics

Not to put too fine a point on it
But that plank in your eye just broke my nose
Scattering a few more splinters
Pluck them out
Hoping to drive your point home

Red in your brown eyes
We’ll see just where your finger lands
Red in your brown eyes
Left without a leg on which to stand

Choose a less shameful past to present
One for which to whet your appetite
Tailored to fit snuggly while
Retaining all the
Style for which you are well known

Red in your brown eyes
We’ll see just where your finger lands
Red in your brown eyes
Left without a leg on which to stand
_
And the diamond dogs you penned with me are looking rather dour
Nothing but the finest clothes for your finest hour
It’s not enough
To cut corners with your lust
But hold that thought until we get back home
And the lightness of your face
Creates meaning in my space
For all the portent
Planted in the loam
_
With a liquor soaked avidity
You’ll use me to your disadvantage
At the business end of truncheons you’ll
bring to heal all the ardor in my face

Red in your brown eyes
We’ll see just where your finger lands
Red in your brown eyes
Left without a leg on which to stand

(you’re unable to catch every little meaning holding grudges
With both hands
Like the ones held over me
It’s seeping through your fingers
And into my hands)
