there must be some way out of here
said the joker to the thief
there’s too much confusion
i can’t get no relief

business men they drink my wine
their plowmen dig my earth
none of them along the line
know what any of it’s worth

no reason to get excited
the thief he kindly spoke
there are many among us
who feel that life is but a joke

but you and I we’ve been through all that
and this is not our fate
so let us not talk falsly
the hour is getting late

and all along the watchtower
princes kept the view
while all the women all the women all the women came and they went
barefoot servants too
outside in the cold distance
a wild cat did growl (la la la)
two riders were approaching
the wind began to howl

(halloween starts)

oh... halloween. bury all
bury all. bury all. bury all
bury all. bury all
and in this dream
tell us are you satisfied with fucking

don’t walk away
don’t walk away
don’t walk away
i’m talking to you

love is hell
love is hell
love is hell
love this I’ll tame you

love, light love, light love, well tell me if you’re satisfied with fucking love, light love, light love, love him and I’ll leave you

and all along the watchtower
the princes kept the view
while all the women all the women all the women came and went
barefoot servants too
outside in the cold distance
a wild cat did growl (la la la la la)
two riders two riders approaching
the wind began to howl

halloween. bury all
bury all. bury all. bury all
bury all. bury all
and in this dream
tell us are you satisfied with fucking

don’t walk away
don’t walk away
don’t walk away
i’m talking to you

love is hell
love is hell
love is hell
love him and I’ll leave you

love
love
love
love him and I’ll leave you

love
love
love
love him...

    General CommentSeriously, why has nobody written anything about this song? Howie Day is one of the best artists when it comes to covering other songs, and this one is no exception. When he transitions between Watchtower and Halloween it is seamless. Plus, his voice sounds so emotionally driven. He is really "into" this song as he sings it.
