Lyrics

Peace Monger

Written By: Phil Pirrone (Wingless Music) ASCAP 2006

show me where to lay my head so i can
feel you breathing
its been so long since ive seen anyone
except for the medicine man.
but you're dyed in the wool.
you got your ducks in a row.
you had a flush in your hands, but you'd rather fold.
I wish I could be more elastic about it.
no threads hold us together.
There are no threads that hold us together.
cut off his grubby little hands
blessing us all.
dime a dozen and ten a penny.
he is what spirit wishes one could undo.
