Tell them all the truth for no secret lies this time,
Once upon a world way before your loss,
So look out I fear that they follow near,
While in the courthouse Judge Kevin sentenced rope to neck,
They don't hear the serpent that burns your ear...
Baby look out!
Leaving well enough alone is no choice of yours to make,
Guilty says the proof this town has no room for you,
So look out I fear that they follow near,
For from the gallows you'll swing for all the kids to see,
They don't hear the serpent that burns your ear,
Or the coward that sits alone in your head with itch...
Baby look out!
Cause I'm so sorry that you could ever,
I'm so sorry for you, you'll never love again.

    General CommentThis is long-arm talking to butchie bleam about his love for Cecillia. Then they go back to the town and long-arm tells everyone about this incident. The serpent refers to the devil which is (they believe) making butchie have these feelings, so he is sentenced to death by hanging so that all of the others in the town can see what happens when you fall in love. They (the town) also assume he is having these feelings just because he hasnt ever had sex and so he has an itch for it and his feelings arent based on love. He is left with the phrase "I'm so sorry for you, you'll never love again." from the judge and is thrown in jail.

    General CommentThis song is actually the father of Long-Arm and Butchie Bleam, who killed his wife when she stole from his Meth stash. He was found and convicted of the murder, but the authorities got to him(Gunner Recall, as he calls himself. He's insane) before the Bleam Brothers, who would have sent him through The Blood Machine. He runs away, and this is him on the run. It's pretty much saying that he's schizophrenic and that it isn't his fault he killed her ("They don't hear the serpent that burns your ear, or the coward that sits alone in your head with IT(Yes, it is "It". The tarot card is wrong))

    General Comment"While in the courthouse Judge Kevin sentenced rope to neck"

    this is wrong,it's.. And in the courthouse Kevin sentenced rope to neck.

    and it's definitely And and there's not really a pause between the words Courthouse and Kevin

    General CommentJust because the lyric package thing from the CD says Judge Kevin doesn't mean that is how the song goes. In fact lyrics booklet things are often wrong. I know it isn't a traditional lyric booklet so don't pull that on me either.

    He/She is right. It does NOT say Judge Kevin. As for pissing people off....well you beat him/her to it.
