lyrics

She has come to take your thoughts and ambition
and leave you lyin' in a puddle of glee
Don't let her get you in such a condition
Stay strong brother, and take it from me
I don't say this with too much contention
I just thought I should mention that I been there before
I know when a heart's in line for a lynchin'
and she's burning her cross by your front door

And I know brother you don't want to hear a god damn thing
when her skin is wrapped around you, like a wedding ring
But a fool could tell, this isn't news that I now bring
and you know well already the truth in these words that I now sing

Well, she has come to do your dirty wishin'
and take it from me her mission ain't havin' fun
And it'll take more than an act of contrition
she'll have your Jesus in pieces when her damage is done

And I know brother, you don't wanna hear a god damn word
when her arms are wrapped around ya you feel lighter than a bird
But I've seen others just like this one
they'll take you up to Heave just to drop you in the sun

So take heed, Brother take heed
So take heed, brother take heed.
