"Let me trip the reason of your lecture for a change
Let me tell you how you'll feel
Let me strap you down and put morphine in your veins
Let me share this bed of steel

Cause here come the state inspector
So doctor all the resident records
Truth is he really don't care less
It's just a function of the politics and business

Oh the squalor, Oh the squalor
Let it empty me
Welcome to whatever God may do
It's no secret that you'll never leave

woah. woah...woahh

Cause here comes the state inspector
So doctor all the resident records
Truth is he really don't care less
It's just a function of the politics and business

Deinstitutionalization
Had a wife but left her at the station
And there's women in the stair wells
When their love lives don't fair well
Whoring themselves away in the kitchen

But look see that woman gettin all dressed up
Putting on her earrings and her makeup
And in another world there's a lonely girl
Who's wishing she'd never been a grown up

Oh the squalor...Oh the squalor
Let it empty me
Welcome to whatever God may do
It's no secret that you'll never leave

Maybe today I won't get the wrong meds,
And maybe today I'll get my fourty six cents
And maybe today I'll jump that barbed wired fence
And leave this place altogether

Cause we're calling all the President's men
And we're stuck in his room, locked in
Won't you do me a favor and give me ten
So I can peek into the hallway again.

Oh the squalor...Oh the squalor
Let it empty me
Welcome to whatever god may do
It's no secret you'll never leave"

Well indeed you lost your friend
On the south side of where you live
Heard the call and had to leave
Boarded up windows burned out brick
Oh please don't you get
A little know fact about the place you set
It's always an empty plate
It's just there so we don't
Forget your loss and your history

Well indeed you found your friend
On the south side of where you live
All curled around his knees
Was it worse then you fret
The punishment you get
Hollow points in the concrete

Have you wailed for the likes of the walls and hunger strikes
Are you more than what you hate
Your fear will not fade the lines
That paint your face
It's a black cab motorcade
Black cab motorcade

Well this one must be lost
At this ungodly time of day
A broken curfew has a cost
A tidy sum you'll pay
Teacher won't you teach your lesson
Though the young are hard to break
Mr smith and mr wesson
And the cost of school these days

Well indeed you found your friend
On the south side of where you live
He was up and walking again
And have you heard what's happened since
Oh please don't you get
Is there any honor outside of revenge
Don't let her set another empty place
We swear that we won't

Forget your loss and your history
Forget your cross and your history

Have you wailed for the likes of the walls and hunger strikes
Are you more than what you hate
Well your fear will not fade the lines
That paint your face
It's a black cab motorcade
Black cab motorcade
Black cab motorcade

The women in the valley forge
They go day to day
Don't let them raid my home and
My home and place
But the men they can't see boyond
So they war and war
They don't remember
What they came here for

People to people are so unjust
Carry yourself well so
Carry yourself well

Women in the valley forged her
The once home of the brave
Don't let them raid me home and
My home and place
But the men they can't see beyond
So they become what they hate
They don't see that the moon has just
Yeah the moon is just getting its legs

People to people are so unjust day
Carry yourself well so
Carry yourself well
People to people are so unjust
Carry yourself well so
Carry yourself well

And you don't even close the barn door
After the horses have scattered
And no one knows anymore
Where all the souls have gathered
Though they will keep an eye on what you do
And when the people have spoken
We won't cry mercy on
Mercy on you
Cause we will
We will be alive just broken

People to people are
So unjust they say
Carry yourself well
Carry yourself well
People to people are so unjust they say
Carry yourself well so
Carry yourself well

Big Olli Mack came out swinging
Looking for a soul to fry
When the dust settled up I said no sir no not I

Well it had been four years since he'd been put inside
He gonna' make all the men pay
And all the women cry

Olli Olli all come free
Olli Olli all come so guilty
Olli Olli state your claim
Olli Olli state your name your name

Olli Olli all come free
Olli Olli don't get me
Olli Olli whatcha gonna do

Cross your heart and hope to die
Hope to God saint Jesus lies
When the constable calls your name

He slapped him with a rifle
And threw him on the stage
Fired a shot for every month he'd been put away

Bookmaker (Bookmaker)
What do you see here
It's hatred that keeps them coming second only to fear

In the wee hours of the night the bonfire still rage
Keep on keeping on and a martyr you will make

No talk of the cross
Just drugs and bombs and gasoline
Gunning each other down both loyal to the queen

Olli Olli all come free
Olli Olli don't get me
Olli Olli whatcha gonna do

Cross your heart and hope to die
Hope to God saint Jesus lies
When the constable calls your name

Olli Olli all come free
Olli Olli all come so guilty
Olli Olli state your claim
Olli Olli state your name your name

Good Friday don't seem no good no more
We don't expect peace from no gun running whore
Well Bookmaker tell us what you know
The tensions running high
This town is gonna blow oh

Olli Olli
Olli Olli
Olli Olli
Olli Olli Olli Olli...

And there's a quiet in the cellar
And if they find us
It'll be all she wrote
And by the time the ground had thawed
The summer
She had barely spoke

I feel so
I feel so blind to what you're sayin'
And if you don't
And if you don't know the cost we're paying

He came screaming down the river
All hopped up on the calvados
And whatever he
Whatever he's taking
Whatever he's making
Please don't give me any of those

Last time I saw him
He was sitting up high in his caravan
As if to say
If we are anything
If I am anything
Then this is who I am

I feel so
I feel so blind to what you're sayin'
And if you don't
And if you don't know the cost we're paying

Wake up the mother
I feel like no other word could hurt her more
Oh what's another lie
Tell us you don't exactly know for sure
How it goes
With calvados
Oh what's another war
When it's not your children

R-e-e-l-e-c-t c-r-o-o-k d-i-s-t-r-i-c-t a-t-t-o-r-n-e-y

Heard of a land held by a troubled hand
Where the whiskey runs the coal
Don't you dare go ask the newsman
Cause he'll tell you everything
He don't know
She was the daughter of the second american revolution
A tall girl with a stones constitution
And when she looked into their eyes to see
She know she ain't never going back to what she believe
To what you believe

So go and riddle me over
I'm a man got nothing to show for
My work in the ground
In this here londontown
So go and riddle me over
I'm a man got nothing to show for
My work in the ground
Got my back to the fire
But it ain't the bridges that are falling down

They said they would never fight no more
After the day she went away
What in the world are we all fighting for
If we don't give they're going to take

So go and riddle me over
I'm a man got nothing to show for
My work in the ground
In this here londontown
So go and riddle me over
I'm a man got nothing to show for
My work in the ground
Got my back to the fire and my feet on the ground
But it ain't the bridges that are falling down

It's just another
It's just a
Go and riddle me over

Go and riddle me over
I'm a man got nothing to show for
My work in the ground
Got my back to the fire
But it ain't the bridges that are falling down

Say that again
You say that again
Oh what's left to hold in place
Say that again
Say that again
Oh what's left to hold in place
Say that again
Say that again
Oh what's left to hold in place
Say that again
Say that again
Oh what's left to hold in place

Manny don't need no comforting
He don't ask of the world to bring him up
Ain't gonna see him waitin' on waitin' on
Waitin' on the day
Got him a chair in '73
It was his only option
So manny agreed
Same chair he has today
Since they threw the cane away
Manny wasn't doing nothing
He just doing his own thing
You know it getting pretty cold out
By the jub jub swing

Oh this friend today
Right me up
Oh this friend today
Right me up
I'm not so weak

Manny gonna go where the rabble go
He gonna roll down the world
And he bring me up
Ain't going to see him
Giving into the others way
Cause they may beat us in search
But our fall is unstained
You know he says it won't be long
Till we are up again
Having another swing
And manny wasn't doing nothing
He just doing his own thing
Yah know it gettin' pretty cold
But he the one who bring

Oh this friend today
Right me up
Oh this friend today
Right me up
I'm not so weak

'cause the bottles not empty
'cause your voices are all there
My life will fight in my body for air
'cause the bottle's not empty
'cause your voices are all there
My life will fight in my body for air

Oh this friend today
Right me up
Oh this friend today
Right me up
I'm not so weak

Manny we gonna get that a.m. dial just right
I'll hold that hanger up
As long as the sox put up a fight

Woke him up with a barrel to his head
His eyes shut tight bracing for the blow
Resigning his life to the metal held
In another man's hand

Twenty days in a concrete fallout
What life have i to take your own
Oh my country won't you call out
Doorbells are ringing with boxes of bones
And from another land's war torn corners
To a prison cell in my own
Punish me for not taking your orders
But don't lock me up for not leavin' my home

Your words just a bloody fallacy
A house of cards you painted white
You tried to recreate normandy
But you made up the reason to fight
And now red oil is spillin' down on the street
And your eyes too big for the belly is weak
Will you not refuse this currency
Or is blood money just money to you
Is blood money just money to you

Twenty days in a concrete fallout
What life have to take your own
Oh my country won't you call out
Doorbells are ringing with boxes of bones
From another land's war torn corners
To a prison cell in my own
Punish me for not taking your orders
But don't lock me up for not leavin' my home

Leavin' my home

Whoa, a little love at Caesar's
Whoa, you know I love to please her
Whoa, a little love at Caesar's goes so far

Whoa, a little love at Caesar's
Whoa, whoa, whoa, you know I love to please her
Whoa, a little love at Caesar's goes so far

Hope I get a little snack tonight
Hope I get a little smack tonight
I'll be starving

Standing in the broad day light
Just waitin' on the comin' of the night
24-hour diner's almost closed
All I need's a cup of Joe 'cause she's so nice

She treats me like I tip her from my head to her toes
Brings me in my water with her skirt so high
I catch a little glimpse in the silverware shine

I ain't no thief 'cause that just ain't right
But I ain't go no money
And I intend to pay for my meal tonight

Whoa, a little love at Caesar's
Whoa, you know I love to please her
Whoa, a little love at Caesar's goes so far

Whoa a little love at Caesar's
Whoa whoa whoa you know I love to please her
Whoa a little love at Caesar's goes so far

She's got a tattooed tongue, she loves to abuse
You can tell that she's good by the language that she use
She says, "Meet you in the bathroom at a quarter to two"

Hey, you know what you must do
'Cause the flood gate's open, your hips are getting loose
You got a rocket in your pocket 'cause you don't know what to do

So go, whoa, she says, "I betcha that I can take all of your soul"
You say, "Put your money where your mouth is and let all be told"

Whoa, a little love at Caesar's
Whoa, you know I love to please her
Whoa, a little love at Caesar's goes so far

Whoa, a little love at Caesar's
Whoa, whoa, whoa, you know I love to please her
Whoa, a little love at Caesar's goes so far

They got crayons on the place mats
Refried beans, don't give me half-and-half
Just whip up my cream

Gimme some flapjacks and slap on the butter
Corned-beef-hash, my mind is in the gutter
Heavy with the syrup, heavy with the grease
My foots in the stirrup, just do as you please

Whoa, a little love at Caesar's
Whoa, you know I love to please her
Whoa, a little love at Caesar's goes so far

Whoa, a little love at Caesar's
Whoa, whoa, whoa, you know I love to please her
Whoa, a little love at Caesar's goes so far

Sunshine you caught me sleeping
And I woke to your skies so grey
But I lay cold in the power of your keeping
So please don't take it all away

Sunshine you fell down on me
As I was fast asleep
And now you woke in the power of your keeping
Just proved a second too late

Me I'm just calling you over
By the power of your own rays
And if I had half a mind
I'd give you all my time to save

Sunshine was I so blind
That I could not see your face
Wont you lend me half a mind
So I can have my time to save

Sunshine, you caught me sleeping
As I woke to a world so gray
But I lay cold in the power of your keeping
So please don't take another second away

Me I'm just calling you over
By the power of your own grace
If I had half a mind
I'd give you all my time to save

Sunshine, was I so blind
That I could not see your face
And would you give me half of mind
I'll give you all my time to save
