hard lessons for my meal last night
cold cruelty on my plate
a faithful heart & years on the side
it’s goin’ down with a bitter taste

it’s goin’ down . . it’s goin’ down
goin’ down like bread & water
can you hear? can you hear?
can you hear me when i cry?

no comfort in my bed last night
old man trouble on my head
same old singer . . brand new song
same old story . . brand new friend

it’s goin’ down . . it’s goin’ down
goin’ down like bread & water
can you hear? can you hear?
can you hear me when i cry?

oh the lion . . oh the lion
oh the lion . . help me lord!
can’t you hear me? can’t you hear me?
can’t you hear me callin‘ out?

hard numbers were my bread last night
hard travelin’ on my slate
it’s gettin’ hard to send it off
oh my friend take a look at my plate

it’s goin’ down . . it’s goin’ down
goin’ down like bread & water
can you hear? can you hear?
can you hear me when i cry?

oh the lion . . oh the lion
oh the lion . . help me lord!
can you hear me? can you hear me?
can you hear me callin‘ out?
oh the lion!
