whip ugly stick

listening to hopkins whip an ugly stick
listening to hopkins whip an ugly stick
looking over mountains never seen

a lonesome dream intruding on the blues
a lonesome dream intruding on these blues
money crisis creeps across the world

people choosing to think that they are choosing
people choosing to think that they are choosing
which side they will elect to rule the losing

bird serenading to an empty nest
bird serenading to an empty nest
black bird singing to a whitewashed empty nest

one more time most of the people failing
one more time most of the people failing
to see the cliffs they are building to jump off

foreign worker needing nails to drive
foreign worker needing nails to drive
into the cross the rich man make him carry

free from your last spell you seek out another
free from your last spell you seek out another
can’t think about the things you made me do

dancing with my arms out like a windmill
dancing with my arms out like a mill
wondering what i’ll do if the music starts

hearing riffs and seeing candy dancers
seeing necromancers hearing stiffs
gandy dancers standing on my hands

slow tunes escaping from my weary head
slow tunes escaping from my weary head
bald as the goat found drowned at john o’groats
